On January 9 at the annual Sky-West Crossover Tournament, the Brookings-Harbor Lady Bruins defeated the Henley Hornets, 51-43, in a close, grinding game.

Impressive Panthers streak ends at state finals

Panther Taylor Bright, top, wrestled his way to 4th place in the 2A/1A 120-pound class.

Gold Beach’s unprecedented 14 year run of fielding at least one state wrestling champion ended on Saturday after a trio of Panthers narrowly missed a title shot.

First Rogue River springer caught

Bob Rodgers and Richard McDowell, both from Healdsburg, California fished on the Chetco River with guide Todd Puett of Todd Puett Guide Service last week and had a very successful day, going 8 for 9 side-drifting Puff Balls-and-roe setups.

I remember when the Mag Lip 4.5 was originally called the M2-SP FlatFish. The Mag Lip is a popular lure used to catch just about everything that swims in a river.

Anyway back in the M2-SP days, you had to know the difference between an M2 and an M2-SP because they were both two completely different animals. It is easy to see how a person could get the two lures confused.

Anyway, the M2-SP worked so effectively and dove deeper than any other FlatFish lure, that it was catching Mackinaw at Odell Lake like crazy, and salmon in every river known to man.
