Warm Water And Weakfishing

It’s mid-August, and that hot, humid, steamy weather finally broke. Temps in the 90s accompanied by high humidity made for some sweaty conditions. Even beachgoers were spending every minute in the water. The bay water temps are in the high 70s, and fishing has been pretty much in the summer doldrums.

Why Pickleball? Why Now?

Six years ago, I stumbled upon a game quite by accident, that I’m proud to say has enriched my life: pickleball. Unless you’ve been totally secluded the past year or so, you’ve heard some mention of the fastest growing sport in the world. I found it when I took my inline skates, a bucket of pucks and my hockey stick to Red Creek Park in Hampton Bays to work up a sweat, and found 30-plus people playing this weird paddle game with a plastic ball, on five courts the town had painted on the rink’s surface. I asked what this ... by Scott Green
