UNLV basketball coach resigns
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tim Grgurich resigned as UNLV basketball coach, physically and emotionally overwhelmed after only five months on the job.
Grgurich, who coached only seven games before being hospitalized earlier this season, said he could not continue the high-pressure, high-profile job of coaching the Runnin’ Rebels.
Grgurich steps down with only one regular-season game remaining for UNLV, which has struggled at 10-15 this season under three different bench coaches.

Coastal fishing provides prime spring alternative
Fishermen who don’t have access to a boat are often 40^ frustrated with
I their options for fishing.
There are lots of lakes, rivers, etc. where you can fish from the shore. The problem is that the fishing isn’t good most of the time. When it is good, it's too crowded to really enjoy yourself.
If you fall into this category, then you’ll probably be interested in great fishing opportunities on our Texas beaches.
Spring and fall are probably the best times for beach fishing. The surf is relatively flat, the water is in good shape.

and best of all, there are lots of fish to be caught.
Heavy weight thick-bodied trout and redfish travel the ever-changing cuts and ditches running parallel to the beach in search of bait fish. A fish called a whiting is the most common catch. This small (10-15 inch) fish is great tasting and there are no bag limits. Plus, dead whiting will work to catch anything from redfish to sharks.
Around mid-April, sharks arrive in the surf to drop their pups. Although it is not uncommon to catch any of a wide variety of species of sharks, the black tip is the most abundant
My suggestion for those who would like to take a surf fishing adventure along the Texas coast is to head south from Corpus Christi. This area is remote, requiring 4-wheel drive vehicles. Take everything you need because there is nothing down the beach for over 60

miles but sand, a few fisherman, and lots of fish. This part of the coast is called the Padre Island National Seashore (PINS).
Make sure and tell someone when to expect you off the beach and back to a safe area. This part of the beach is tough. If vehicles break down or get stuck, you may be there for a while until help arrives.
There is one guide that specializes in surf fishing. He provides everything from the vehicle to all tackle and equipment. His specialty is making sure his clients catch fish. Contact Bill Sandier at 512-937-8446 for information on fishing at PINS.
