CRANK IT UP! Another nice day with light winds will give you an opportunity to get out there and get on fish. We wander around the web for some of the worst lures, some good fly fishing targets and take stock of the sunlight we’re adding each day in our Outdoors Update.

15 HOURS. We’re about five weeks out from the longest day of the year in terms of daylight, as we hit 15 hours exactly today. Just about 2/3 of the day will be daylight on June 21, when the summer solstice takes place.
