Spring is everything new

   Spring gives us a new beginning especially outside whether that means in the woods, on the water, or right there in your own backyard.
   For some it means a new vegetable garden layout, landscaping around the house and deck, new bird feeders to attract orioles and hummers, and plantings to enhance that attraction.
   For others it may be a new lawn mower or trimmer. If it's the former, perhaps it's time to go to a rider with a rear bagger. Or maybe you are looking to much everything right back into the lawn.
   Still, there are many seeking the newest and hottest baits to throw at bass once Memorial Day rolls around. And along with baits, boats ordered through the winter are arriving at dealers to be outfitted and tested before being released to customers.
   That brings us to tournament fishing and one of the newer tournaments around here is the second annual No-Mo kayak fishing tournamet to benefit Make-A-Wish foundation.
   Tournament date is May14 with a mandatory captains meeting May 13. Tournament headquarters will be at Riverside Kayak Connection, 4016 Biddle Ave., Wyandotte, (734) 285-2925. Get a registration form from RKC, fill it out and send along your $50 to join this worthwhile and fun event.
   Fish anywhere in Monroe or Wayne Counties as long as there is public access to the water you fish. Live bait is prohibited. Bring your plastics and go fishing.
   A CPR (catch, photograph, record) tournament, you'll need a camera with a SD card to record your catch.
   First prize is a brand new Wilderness Tarpon 120 sit on top, fishing kayak. Raffles that include rods and reels, trips and a bunch of other neat stuff are for sale.
   Come on out, wear your PFD and have a fun day. Weigh in will be back at RKC. So will raffles and prizes along with a lunch and light refreshments.
   Hope to see all of you out there on May 14. It's a great way to have fun, meet new people and help a great cause. Read more this Sunday May 8 in the Oakland Press Sports section.
