Lake Guntersville is producing lots of quality bass this spring as the fish school up after the spawn.Mike Carter Several seasoned guides including captains Mike Carter and Mike Gerry have reported bass fishing at Guntersville in the last few weeks to be better than it has been in years, and considering that the lake was once the best in the nation, that's saying a lot. Anglers at the lake had been reporting tough fishing for the last several years, so the bonanza this spring is welcome news not only for local fishermen but for guides, camp owners, marina operators and others who depend on the fishing for income. Anglers have reported an explosion in action since the spawn, with some catching 40 to 50 fish from 3 to 5 pounds in a day on the water. The bass are mostly just off the edges of the spawning flats, in depths of 8 to 10 feet over scattered grass, where smart anglers have been locating them with bladed jigs, swimbaits, swim jigs and soft plastics.

The biggest oil stocks may be about to hit the next oil bonanza after initially missing the shale boom. Consider this: Crude prices can fall to $35 a barrel, less than half current levels, and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) could still profit off a deepwater oil project in the Gulf of Mexico.

This isn't a coincidence. The oil major plans to boost deepwater oil production by over 200,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, to more than 900,000 by 2020. This comes even as Shell also ramps up shale activity in places like the Permian Basin. Oil companies are again looking at deepwater projects, which are notoriously expensive and were ripe targets for cuts after crude collapsed in 2014. But deep-pocketed giants like Shell, Exxon Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) are now uniquely positioned to capitalize on … [Read more...] about Why The Next Oil Bonanza Could Be Deep Under Water
Leslie McGourty (Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department) A Bonanza High School teacher who was arrested this month on a terrorism charge had made threats to “poke a lot of holes in a lot of people” during a concert in downtown Las Vegas, a police document shows. Leslie McGourty was arrested on school grounds May 16 after her friend reported to Las Vegas police that she had threatened to kill herself and others during an ongoing conversation over text messages. The 48-year-old woman, who, according to public employment records, appears to have been a physics teacher, faces a felony charge of making a threat to commit an act of terrorism. The text message exchange that landed her in police custody started early May 15 and extended late into the night, documents show. In the series of text messages detailed in her arrest report, McGourty had repeatedly romanticized “being remembered” and said she hoped to start another #MeToo movement, “but this time in … [Read more...] about Police report: Bonanza teacher threatened shooting at Las Vegas bar
