Captain's Corner: Get ready for Southern Kingfish Association tournaments

Looking ahead: The Southern Kingfish Association kicks off its tournament trail next weekend. Marco Island and Naples host events, and then it's on to Fort Myers. In just more than a month, it's our turn. Our area has two sanctioned events. The first is April 9-10 out of Sarasota, then we wrap up May 7-8 at Gators on John's Pass in Treasure Island. The events are family oriented and open to the public. Check fishska.com for details.

Status reports: At the Sunshine Skyway bridge fishing pier Tuesday, pier operators reported decent catches of silver trout and a few caught-and-released grouper in recent days. Schools of greenbacks and whitebait that often congregate along these structures were noticeably absent. On a recent relatively calm day, a trip just off the beach along Redington produced 50 silver trout and a mess of whiting while working tandem rigged jigs in 14 to 17 feet.

Jay Mastry charters Jaybird out of St. Petersburg and can be reached at (727) 321-2142.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — RHP Sergio Romo was about to play catch with LHP Adam Kolarek before Monday's batting practice when he paused.

    RAMOS EXITS: Rays catcher Wilson Ramos clutches his head after being beaned by Ruben Tejada’s broken bat in the fifth inning. Ramos leaves the game and receives six staples to close a laceration on his head.
  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Monday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    LHP Blake Snell stepped up when the Rays needed him to — and perhaps when he had to to keep his job — with a season-high seven-plus innings. It wasn't only that he got deep into the game but how, using his high-octane fastball to pound the strike zone.

  4. Urban Meyer says the Big Ten is now the equal of the SEC

    College

    CHICAGO — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't just believe the Big Ten has closed the gap with the more heralded SEC. He is convinced the race is a dead heat already.

    Ohio State’s Urban Meyer says the Big Ten East is as strong as the SEC East was when he coached UF to two national titles.
  5. USF opens preseason workouts with defensive improvement a priority

    College

    TAMPA — To prevent preseason wear on his three normal practice fields, new USF coach Charlie Strong is staging the first phase of the 2017 preseason on the fields used by the original Bulls two decades ago.
