Fishermen are notorious for having huge hearts when it comes to children, especially disadvantaged or seriously ill children, so it's no wonder that the Toys for Tots Tournament on Clarks Hill Lake will be celebrating 34 years of giving in the tournament on Nov. 28.

Fishing should be good on Smith Mountain Lake Saturday for the second of eight regular season tournaments on the schedule for the Ram American Fishing Tour Virginia Western Division, said division director Elvin Jennings.

College fraternities often get a lot of bad press – most of it self-inflicted – but it's also newsworthy when a frat does something good, like the Sigma Tau Gamma Chapter at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte.

Normally, you are not too happy if you are the last boat drawn in a tournament because everybody gets out ahead of you and heads for the prime fishing spots before you can get there.

There is something special about a father and son who spend time together doing something they both like and when Tom Kizziah III and his dad, Tom Kizziah Jr., fish the Chattanooga Bass Association Classic on Lake Chickamauga this weekend it will mark more than two decades they have teamed up to compete in tournaments.

The weather looks good – outstanding, in fact – so the Anglers Choice Invitational Tournament Trail finally appears poised to get one of its two classics completed this weekend.
