Almy: Jump fishing worth a shot

White mist swirled over the emerald green waters of Leesville Lake as we raced towards the frothing commotion of churning gamefish and frantically skipping shad. Cutting the outboard motor, we cast our white bucktail jigs towards the melee and began reeling. Soon all three rods in the boat were bent double. comments

Keeler: Citi Open has long ways to go

I've always had high hopes that someday the Citi Open in Washington D.C. could be elevated to a bigger professional tennis tournament. The idea of seeing players such as Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova dancing around in my head. However, after actually attending and seeing most of those players last week in Cincinnati I realize that D.C. has a long ways to go to become a big-time tennis tournament. comments

Almy: Smaller topwater lures produce

No thrill in angling can match that of a hungry bass chomping down on a surface lure the size of a rat. But finding such aggressively-feeding fish is unfortunately the exception rather than the rule. When bass are in a finicky, skittish mood or not aggressively feeding, jumbo surface lures often fail miserably. comments

You hear it all the time from players and coaches, "We have a lot of team chemistry," but after being around JMU's football team earlier this week I truly believe they have some real chemistry going. comments

Murto: ESPN gets a black flag

The new NASCAR TV deal that takes effect next year gives the races to Fox and NBC, so I was interested to see how ESPN handled this year's Brickyard 400 broadcast from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. comments

Almy: Trout love hopper flies

While aquatic insects such as mayflies get most of the attention in trout fishing literature, in modern times terrestrial insects (those living on land) are becoming more and more important in the diet of trout. They jump, fall, get blown in by wind or washed in by rain and are greedily gobbled up by waiting brook, brown and rainbow trout. comments

Keeler: Plenty of talent in Citi Open

It's a bit of a dead period in sports right now. Soon football will take center stage and baseball will get to what really matters - the playoffs. However, if you need your fix of some great professional athletes playing in the D.C. area, next week's Citi Open combined men's and women's professional tennis tournament could be the place for you. comments

Murto: NHRA has lots of horsepower

When most fans are asked what first attracted them to racing, the answer is usually, "Speed." Speed comes from horsepower, and nothing celebrates pure horsepower more than NHRA drag racing. comments

The majority of outdoor sportsmen shows are held in late winter, after fall hunting seasons have finished. That's certainly a perfect time to hold such an event, when there's not much to do outside. comments

Keeler: Ravens could have big year

This is the time of year that I dislike the most in sports. With basketball season over, only baseball is going on, of the big three sports. I do love baseball, but the season is just way too long to keep my attention for the whole season. However, football is just around the corner. comments
