Virginia fisherman wins James River event in Henrico

Chris Daves of Spring Grove, Va., weighed a three-day total of 15 bass totaling 33 pounds to win the Walmart Bass Fishing League Regional Championship on the James River Oct. 4. For his victory, Daves took home a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy 1500 Silverado, as well as entry into the 2015 BFL All-American presented by Chevy.

The regional tournament featured the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers from each of the Northeast, Piedmont, Shenandoah and South Carolina divisions.

“I would start up the James River, because the tide was lower up there in the morning, and then run down to Chickahominy Creek around lunchtime,” said Daves, who earned the third BFL win of his career. > Read more.

Oh, nuts

‘The Nut Job’ fails to crack the humor code
What is it that made The Nut Job so successful? Cartoon squirrels equal live-action cash, apparently; the film had the biggest opening weekend of any independent animated movie in history. Three days later, and plans for a sequel began. You can’t call the film anything but a rousing, undeniable success story.

Unless, of course, you actually sit down to watch it. The Nut Job may have been a terrific investment, but it’s certainly not a terrific movie. > Read more.
