It wasn’t easy getting everyone up and around at 5 a.m. for a day’s fishing off shore, but I had the coffee going and had stopped all the snoring noises by 5:15 a.m.

It wasn’t too long after that we were getting into the car for our journey to Ft. Pierce, where we would be meeting Captain Rich for a day’s outing on the charter boat, “FINS.” We actually arrived at the Ft. Pierce Marina dock about five minutes early even though we made a stop at Dunkin Doughnuts for breakfast sandwiches. It was the beginning of a great guys day.

Quickness expected to be key for Fulton girls lacrosse

by Rob Tetro

For the Fulton girls varsity lacrosse team to achieve its goals, it will have to develop into a more cohesive unit at a steady pace this season, according to assistant coach Andrew Karpinko.

If the lady Raiders can maintain a steady development, Fulton will aim to have a winning record and compete for a league title.

But the expectations do not end there. If the Lady Raiders can qualify for post-season play, they feel that they can accomplish a lot in sectional play.

I missed getting a column in last week because I just got too busy, and by the time I realized it, my deadline had come and gone.

That’s not a good thing! We have our four “boys” down here, plus four grandchildren, and we have been going, going, going.

Monday, we got in a bit of fishing, but mainly we gathered a big bucket of oysters. Tuesday the guys and I were out fishing all day. We caught lots of lady fish, and a good number of silver trout. We added a few gaff-topsail catfish, and yours truly caught a nice Spanish mackerel about 4 pounds.
