The Vidor Lady Pirate varsity soccer team hosted six area soccer teams at Croak Field as preseason scrimmages get underway. The new field surface brought rave reviews from the visitors and the Lady Pirates looked sharp, too, scoring 6 goals while giving up one in their three games.

“The other schools and the officials all really liked our new turf a lot. They said it was a tremendous improvement from the grass field we had and that it looks amazing,” said Ralph Fields, Head Girls’ Soccer coach.

While the games played don’t count toward the season records, it gave coaches a chance to gauge their players’ performance against someone other than their classmates.

Sometimes finding fish comes down to just getting that first bite

Fishing and Hunting Southeast Texas By Capt. Bill Watkins

Sometimes finding fish comes down to just getting that first bite

It was 10:00 am and all we had in the ice chest to show for our effort was two nice sized flounder and one skinny speckled trout. My two guests were real fishermen and had hung on and kept casting through the whole ordeal but I am sure that they were beginning to lose faith in me and my ability to produce. Especially since I had run the boat eighteen miles and stopped at least ten times trying to find the fish. We fished deep channeled bayous, shorelines, oyster shell pads, clam shell beds, and channel drops. Nothing was working. We had good water clarity everywhere we tried and at some locations could see the bottom in six feet of water. The water temperature was 62 degrees at dawn and warmed up only a couple of degrees during the day. That is a temperature range that is very good for speckled trout and red fish. There was a stiff north wind blowing at dawn and it made casting somewhat difficult but we still should have been able to find the fish. Finally, I began to doubt myself.

Fishing and Hunting Southeast Texas

Get away from your box blind for pressured deer

It is amazing how fast our Southeast deer Texas wise up to hunting pressure. Right up until two days before the open of rifle season on November second I continued to see deer moving around. While traveling the one- and one-half miles of dirt county road leading into our lease I might see at least one deer or maybe two or three.
