Tom Miller: Odds and ends from the sports world
During this cold spell in February, it's time to take a look at the going-ons in our sports world, Sports columnist Tom Miller writes.
Ted Peck: Tungsten jigs best bet to lure slow-moving fish
Locating fish is the tough part. Once you find them, you can make them bite. The key is a slow and small lure presentation on extremely light line. Tungsten lures have been the rage amongst ice fishers for several years, as baits of this material are heavier than lead baits of a similar size.
