In the early morning hours just after daylight you could do some bass fishing. A good area for some topwater action is along the riprap at the dam.
I remember how impressed I was at the lifelike appearance of the bait on the surface, but in the back of my mind I was wondering if it would really entice bass out of the heavily matted submerged vegetation.
Texas State Parks and the Texas Historical Commission State Historic Sites are hosting more than 50 events across the state to help bring in some holiday cheer.
This last October, a lot of new products hit the market, not only for new lure patterns, but also updated electronics. This might mean that it will be easier to pick Christmas presents for your favorite fishermen.
After almost 60 years of taking to the whitetail woods, I think I’m qualified to at least take a stab at answering the question: What is a trophy buck?
Phil Carter photographed this 9-point buck following a group of doe Saturday morning in Lamar County. Doe were running back and forth for a long period of time with this buck in pursuit. Just his presence, and they would take off, Carter said.
I’ve always said long-term friendships can be created faster in the outdoors when like-minded folks get together than any other way. Through the years, I have made a great many friends while on story assignments.
With the first sightings of iconic, endangered whooping cranes along the Texas coast, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is reminding Texans to be on the lookout for these impressive birds as they move through the state.
Neil answers questions about leaf drop, timing for planting trees and dying peach trees.
A couple months ago, I underwent prostate surgery. I’m doing fine now, but I won’t kid you, there was a period of about two months where I was definitely not hitting on all eight cylinders.
With hunting season underway, many hunters and campers are headed to the outdoors. This movement of people into wild areas increases the potential for human-caused wildfires to start.
The forecast is calling for lower night temps and rain, but hold on, we still haven’t had our first frost yet, but you can bet that it’s not far off.
Here we are, about a month into the fall season and even though we’ve had some fall-type days, we’ve also had some almost summer days. Most of our area lakes’ fishing has been good to fair, and I believe that’s pretty typical for fall because of the many fronts moving through. Those cooler n…
Wild hog numbers must be controlled. This is an absolute fact. I’ve read that over half the population must be removed each year just to maintain current numbers. I get it, but probably because I spent my younger days on a small farm where my dad raised hogs for meat. To make a few extra dol…
While the leaves have been trying to turn, we have been experiencing summer-time heat, but this is about to change. Fishing patterns have also changed a little. Some of the fish have changed their positions, moving back to a little deeper water.
Those of us who have spent a lifetime in the outdoors have undoubtedly witnessed some sights we didn’t understand. Through the years, I have learned there is usually rhyme and reason to everything in the natural world.
At this time, Pat Mayse is slightly above normal pool with water temps in the low 70s. Water color is very good for this time of year, especially with all the rain and runoff it has received.
The following items are compiled from recent Texas Parks and Wildlife law enforcement reports.
Like many mature hunters of my generation, I am sometimes a bit slow on incorporating new ideas into the way I hunt. After all, hunting methods that have worked during the past half century need no improvement, or do they?
We’ve had more rain and a little fall-type weather, and it has lowered our water temps. Most all our area lakes are above normal pool except Lake Fork.
On a trip back to rural Red River County where I grew up, I had an interesting conversation with a gentleman at a local café where a buddy and I were having breakfast.
