The heat of summer can lead to some great fishing, but it can also make things miserable out on the water.
It was a windy day, but 131 young anglers competed last weekend in the 14th annual Glen Elder Youth Fishing Tournament at Waconda Lake.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism will again offer its “Free Fishing Days” to anglers June 2-3 at all public waters in Kansas.
Outlook: Fishing looks to be tough this week, but some excellent fishing is ahead during the final week of May, according to the Fishing Calendar app.
After being named America’s Best New Attraction by USA TODAY, Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium in Springfield, Mo., is up for another honor from the publication — “America’s Best Aquarium.”
With March Madness radiating on Saturday as Kansas matched up with Villanova in the Final Four and Loyola-Chicago, led by a pair of Kansans in Clayton Custer and Ben Richardson, took on Michigan, another team was crowned champion.

This week, I received an email from Elmer Hedrick, 82, of Shawnee.
Elmer says he gets The Topeka Capital-Journal from his sister-in-law in Emporia and read a recent column of mine on ice fishing and heated docks. He enjoys crappie fishing but didn’t much like the idea of ice fishing in the cold. However, he wanted to know if I had any tips on heated docks he could hit this winter in Kansas, preferably ones close to home.
