A lesson in finding and catching bass

By Capt. Bill Watkins

It was chilly with a twelve-knot northeast wind blowing across Big Sam Rayburn Reservoir as we launched my friend Randy Hicks’ bass boat. My son William was along on the trip as well as the featured guest. William, is a solid fisherman in his own right but was in need of some advanced bass fishing techniques. Randy is an advanced level tournament angler with many years of experience under his belt so I managed to get them hooked up for a lesson in pitching jigs and creature baits (definitely one of Randy’s strong points).

Pirates’ poor first half play gives game to revenge-minded Titans

By Randall Luker

 

The Port Arthur Memorial Titans had revenge on their minds and two weeks rest on their bodies when they met the Vidor Pirates Friday.

 

Revenge was sweet for the Titans as they scored 40 first half points to beat the Pirates 40-14 in Port Arthur. While the Titans were gunning for the Pirates after last year’s 31-21 upset victory gave the Titans their only regular season loss and threw the district into a three way tie for first, a slow start for the Pirates’ and miscues in the first half were too much to overcome in the second half.

Pirates travel to face tough test in rested Titans

By Randall Luker

After scoring an average 60 points against their last two opponents, Livingston and Baytown Lee, the Pirates will face the best defense in District 22-5A this Friday when they take on the Port Arthur Memorial Titans on their home turf. And, the Port Arthur team is coming off its bye week which allowed extra time to prepare for Vidor’s Slot T offense.

Memorial has only surrendered 96 points this season while scoring 276. That’s the best record in 22-5A for points allowed. The Titans also lead the district in yardage allowed per game, a stingy 181.6 yards.

Pirates hope to pluck Ganders for Homecoming

By Randall Luker

 

It’s a playoff game. We have to win.” That’s how Vidor Head Coach Jeff Mathews described this Friday’s Homecoming game versus the Baytown Lee Ganders. Even though it’s a regular season game, the Pirates must win to preserve their playoff berth against Crosby. Of course, several other teams must either win, or lose, to knock the Pirates out, and Vidor could conceivably fail to continue on to post season play with losses to Lee and Port Arthur Memorial. A win against both would knock Nederland out of the playoff hunt and pave the way for a Central appearance.
