Gabby’s fishing fever

Good weather kept bass fishing hot

We sure have been blessed with nice weather this late in the year. We will have some cooler weather this week, but for those who got to get outdoors recently I hope you had a good fishing trip. Largemouth bass, walleye and crappie will stay active in warmer late season weather. Largemouth bass can be caught very close to the […]

Struttin’ Time:

Taking a short break until 2019

As we close this year 2018 we have much for which to be thankful. We have traveled more 10,000 miles without an accident or break down and we didn’t even get lost. I am thankful for my friend, Gary “Doomsday” Harper, who has been by my side through most of our miles and hunts. I am also thankful to have […]

‘A normal kid’ who can really shoot

Vaught’s Views

Kentucky signee Dontaie Allen knows shooting is what he does best — and what Kentucky coach John Calipari obviously liked about the 6-6 Pendleton County senior. “I think I can drive, too, but I would probably give a nod to shooting as my best ability,” said Allen. “I do also think I am an underrated passer. I really like passing […]

Weather heats up largemouth bass

As the weather has warmed back up a spike in activity is occurring in largemouth bass fishing. When the water temperature cools to 50 and below, largemouth slow way down as their metabolism slows down. On most lakes in our area the largemouth will move to deeper and warmer water. Smallmouth bass will be much more active in colder water […]

A good year is winding down

This year is almost over for Struttin’ Time, and what a fun journey it has been. Hunting in Florida in March with Ms. Kate at Watermelon Pond Plantation, helping a neighbor from Minnesota get his “Slam” after not giving up for two years, and then going out west in April to hunt Rio’s and Merriam with Gary “Doomsday” Harper. While […]

Joey Logano spoils Big 3 party, wins NASCAR title



HOMESTEAD, Fla. Joey Logano was the underdog in NASCAR’s title race, the driver few thought capable of keeping pace with the Big Three and stealing the title from one of the favorites. Logano proved everyone wrong with an upset victory in a season in which he only became a true contender once his Team Penske group started the postseason. He […]

No changes for UK’s struggling offense?

Not sure whether Kentucky’s 34-point loss to Duke in basketball or 24-7 loss at Tennessee in football was more disappointing last week. However, both had one troubling theme — Kentucky’s effort was not nearly equal to the team it was playing in either game. The basketball team has the rest of the season to sort out its problem and despite […]

Struttin’ Time:

Your aim should be safety first

November 10 was the opening day of rifle season, and the starting of rut for those big bucks. Please be careful. Bullets have no eyes. Once sent on their way, there is no calling them back. Make 100 percent sure you know what you are shooting at. It is always a good idea to check what is behind that big […]

Smallmouth bass and crankbaits

Smallmouth bass fishing really heats up as the water temperatures drop into the low 50’s, but largemouth bass will slow down and move toward warmer, deeper water on most lakes. With smallmouth bass much more active in colder water, they will hit a bait very hard. There are some winter anglers who will bundle up and go out in very […]
