Fishing heats up

If you like to catch trout from the shore, start paying attention to Utah’s fishing reports — some of the best shore fishing of the year is about to begin. Ice is starting to pull away from the shore at mid-elevation waters around the state. As the ice pulls away, the sun hits the shallow water near the shore. If it doesn’t get cloudy or windy, the sun can warm the water fast. As the water warms, trout and other cold water fish move into the shallow water in search of food. And these fish are hungry — it’s been awhile since they’ve had a decent meal. “At many of the state’s waters, spring is the best time to fish from the shore,” says Roger Wilson, Aquatic Section chief for the Division of Wildlife Resources. “It’s a great time to take your kids fishing. They can catch a bunch of fish using simple techniques.”

Final Four

Only one No. 1 survived to make it to the Final Four this year and that is Kentucky. The Wildcats will face in-state foe No. 4 seed Louisville Saturday in New Orleans in a Final Four match-up. The other game pits two No.2 seeds against each other with Ohio State facing Kansas. The winners on Saturday will play Monday night for the national championship.

Celebrity kart race

The DRIFT BigM Superbike Super Celebrity Mega Kart Showdown is scheduled once again at Miller Mostorsports Park. The race pits 14 teams agaisnt each other. Each team will be comprised of a racer from the FIM Superbike World Championship or AMA Pro Road  Racing, a member of the media, a military member and a fan. Fans over 18 years of age who purchase a ticket to The BigM Weekend by May 15 will be eligible to win one of 13 slots in the DRIFT BigM Weekend Superbike Super Celebrity Mega Kart Showdown, to be held on Friday, May 25. The 14th  team will be manned by returning event champions Kellen Burch of Rexburg, Idaho and Ryan Whitehouse of Utah’s Deseret Chemical Depot. The race will be conducted in four five-lap heats. Each driver must complete one of the heat races. Rather than competing for overall finishing position, each driver’s fastest lap time will be recorded and added to their teammates’ fastest lap times. The team with the lowest cumulative lap time will win the event. The fan and military member on the winning team will receive a three-day Grandstand ticket to the 2013 BigM Weekend and a guaranteed slot in the 2013 DRIFT BigM Weekend Superbike Super Celebrity Mega Kart Showdown.
