I used to fish all through the winter. And that was back in the days when we actually had real winter weather. I guess I have turned into a bit of a lightweight. I haven’t been fishing since fall. That is about to change.

It is springtime. The streams won’t open for fishing for a while yet, but the lakes are waking up and it’s time to hit the water.

The Chester Lady Volcanoes softball team took victory in its league opener against Mercy last week, with pitcher Rebecca Branch taking the 15-2 win and putting together a game that saw her strike out six Lady Warrior batters and earn only one of the two Mercy runs.

After the Vols opened up with scoring runs from Elizabeth Bereznak and Branch in the first inning, the squad blew it open in the second as Hope Haver, Zoie Dalby and Bereznak put up three in a row. After a putout against Reanna Trujillo in the infield, the bats livened up for Chester yet again as Branch, Allison House, Kaitlyn Hedrick, Antonia Marro and Ronnie Rhoads scored five runs in a row. Dalby closed the inning with another to give Chester an 11-0 lead.

Sometimes when Greenville’s James Martinez hits a baseball it goes out of the park — and then other times it stays inside the park and he still gets a home run for his effort.

That was exactly the scenario that opened up last week’s cross-county rivalry act between the Indians and Portola Tigers as Martinez, a senior for Greenville and leadoff batter in the lineup, smashed a flyball to the fence to take an in-the-park homer to open up the game.

Two teams tied for first place at six under par. In the first group, Jeff Stevens, Matt Rutledge, Gary Gosney and Darel Joseph scored. The second team to score was Margie Joseph, John Bowen, Robert Truscott and Greg Stevens.

Helping with limits
Question: We do a lot of ocean fishing and spearfishing and have a question: Do anglers or spearfishers have to stop fishing once they reach their bag limit even if they are with another licensed angler or spearfisher without their limit? For example, if I am on my boat fishing for rockfish with a friend and I catch my limit but my licensed friend is having a slow day, can I legally gift him some of my limit and continue fishing? The same with spearfishing. I know in years past I have been on boats where fishing was not stopped until the boat had limits for everyone fishing. This seems like a gray area to me and I just want to make sure I am following legal and ethical methods while diving and fishing. Thank you.
