After all, this Web log is named for the Stray Cast, which has snapped off the end of the outdoors column in the Sun-Times on Wednesdays since April 2, 2003.

A five year old kid is supposed to whine not a 50 year old reported. But when it comes to Santo the southsiders are the Largemouth Bass of whiners !!!!!!!!!

Whats your secret fishing spot?

If I said, it would not be a secret. My favorite spots for the lakefront is the south rocks or what used to be the south rocks at Montrose Harbor, the waterfall on the North Branch and for wading the state park on the Kankakee.
