Around The Table: The Taste of Teas

Watching the steam curl and swirl as it rises from my cup of tea, I am enjoying the peace and the coolness of one of the last mornings in March. The aroma of the lemongrass tea is refreshing and as savory to my nose as to my tastebuds, just right for waking my mind out of its sleep induced fog energizing my mind.

TURKEY SEASON AT HAND 

There is something very special about being out in the spring woods in pursuit of a long beard turkey gobbler. With Indian Paintbrushes and Bluebonnets in bloom and the sweet smell of plum or dogwood blossoms permeating the cool spring air, a turkey hunt during the spring is a true sensory overload. I know. I’ve been addicted to...

LAKE OR STREAM FOR SPAWNING WHITE BASS?

Timing a fishing trip to coincide with the peak of the white bass spawn is about as chancy as predicting the weather in Texas two weeks in advance, but when everything comes together, the nonstop action provided by a big school of spawning white bass, confined to a deep pool in a stream or river, or stacked up in huge numbers on a main lake hump or ridge, is about as exciting as fishing gets.

FINALLY, A GOOD SMELLING HIGHLY EFFECTIVE CATFISH BAIT 

I truly believe that really great anglers are born with an uncanny ability to catch fish or at least the burning desire to learn how to catch fish. Stubby Stubblefield who resides on the shores of Lake Fork in east Texas is a good case in point. “Stubby” spent his time as a touring bass pro in his younger years, guided for...

Around the Table: March Menu Ideas

March is the month for traditional holidays like Mardis Gras, Ash Wednesday, Purim, St. Patrick's. Day, and the Spring Equinox. Curiosity led me to discover that some unusual and quirky holidays including March 4th "Hug a GI Day", March 13th "Ear Muff Day" (especially celebrated in Maine, the home state of Chester Greenwell who invented the ear muffs and started that industry), the "Ides of March" on March 15th, which Shakespearean fans will remember as the assaination day of Julius Ceasar, but actually was...

Retrace Our Steps: We Fight For Freedom (1776)

Following the American losses in the fall of 1776 and prior to the victory at Trenton, several States issued addresses in an effort to encourage their citizens. Among the addresses given was one to the citizens of New York written by John Jay. (John Jay became the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1789.) After reading a copy of this address, Congress “earnestly recommended” it to all American citizens and ordered it “printed at the expense of the continent.”

This Week in the Outdoors: Of Hog Poison, Catfishing, and Galveston Giant Black Drum

This past week has been a very busy one for me, possibly the busiest of my 28-year career as an outdoors writer. Much of my time was spent dealing with the new regulation that will allow the use of bait/poison for hogs called “Kaput.” Last week’s column included a press release from Sid Miller, the Agriculture Commissioner in Texas.

LATE WINTER TRIP FOR HOGS AND Hawgs!

Just yesterday, I returned from a couple days of late winter fishing and hunting that will remain firmly etched in my memory banks for the remainder of my days. I believe everyone present on this trophy catfish/wild hog extravaganza feels the same way. Is there a better way to cure the Winter Blues than catching big catfish on the best catfish lake in the state with the best “big fish” guide, and then hunting hogs on a great ranch? Great friends make any outdoor adventure...

Walk with Bob: THE TO DO LIST

January is the month we made the New Year Resolutions. February is about half over. It’s a good thing it is the shortest month, so we don’t have so long make excuses for not staying on that great diet. Diets do not work. They are not sustainable. Think about it. If you lost one pound a week...
