It was a short, cockpit or sit-in style kayak. I had a hard time controlling its tippy tendencies.</p> <p> After an hour or so, my back began to hurt trying to keep the boat in position to properly fish. I had little room to stow my rod and tackle. I eventually bought a personal pontoon boat for my stream fishing, forsaking a kayak because of this bad experience.</p> Bears’ bats come alive in two wins http://www.spencermagnet.com/content/bears%E2%80%99-bats-come-alive-two-wins <p> The Spencer County Bears notched two big wins to begin play last week, routing Nelson County in Bardstown 12-5 on Tuesday, and then topping Bullitt Central 13-5 on Thursday in Shepherdsville.</p> <p> Blake Lambdin allowed four hits through four innings from the mound, and also delivered a two-run single in a four-run seventh inning to pace the Bears to the victory over Nelson County. Jaret Cannon delivered a strong three innings in relief.</p>
