Sitting on a boat in the middle of the lake at night might be one of the most relaxing things on the world.
I had a wild time fishing last week across Topeka.
I decided to start out by walking along Shunga Creek, hoping to see some bass in the deeper spots after the rains we’ve been having.
Mid-creek musings as I ponder whether we’ll get as much rain this spring as last:
Sutherlands Outdoors in Topeka is hosting a Big Turkey Contest from April 9 through May 31.
As though created by angels and delivered to my mouth on a lightning bolt of flavor, Arby’s limited-edition Venison Sandwich left me feeling as though I had caught a glimpse of the heavens and all their splendor before being jettisoned back down to the duldrums of reality.
The one-day-only offer of this delectable morsel has come and gone, and I once again must roam the earth longingly, dreaming of the day the delightful deer steak drenched in juniper berry steak sauce and adorned with a light blanket of crispy onions will once again touch my lips.
I received another email about the odd, dog-like creature often seen running around Topeka that has been dubbed “the Kansas Chupacabra” by one reader.
Eric Nordgren, an avid cyclist, said that he cycles almost every day and does between 15K and 20K per year.
One family in Houston has found a way to share a moment of levity despite the catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.
With flood waters standing about calf-high in the family’s home, a shirtless man can be seen in several Facebook videos chasing and eventually catching a fish in the living room.
The videos were posted at 1:49 a.m. Sunday by Viviana Saldana with the caption: “Why go out looking for food when the food is coming to our living room?”

Just another day, in my solitude, on the water. Not a fancy boat, but alas, enough for the job at hand. The elusive rock bass I just can’t get to the boat. This rock bass has cost me money, many sleepless nights, no matter what size it is. I have turmoil in my stomach, I have a headache that never goes away.
