The spawn is on

By Capt. Bill Watkins

Two weeks ago, my son William, called me and invited me to go on a one morning bass fishing trip on San Rayburn. When the call came, I was on Sabine lake with three guests catching speckled trout, red fish, and a few flounders. I hardily accepted the invite as I do not get a lot of time to bass fish anymore, especially around spawning time. That day was raw, with a stiff east by northeast wind blowing but the catching was pretty good anyway. By the time, we left the bay at 2:00 pm the wind had switched to the southeast and warmed considerably.

The next morning at dawn, we launched my son’s bass boat at Caney Creek Park on Sam Rayburn. As we idled away from the ramp the thought came to me about how really great it is to be able to fish such a great fishery as Sabine Lake one day and then be able to fish one of our great inland reservoirs the next. You have got to love Southeast Texas.

Hunt in the high Rockies continued

By Capt. Bill Watkins 

Our outfitter left in a hurry and his taillights disappeared quickly in the falling snow. Why not? He had already been paid and there were other hunters to pull out of the blizzard. We were now on our own. My friend Howard Simon had hunted in the high Rockies a couple of times and was an incredibly accomplished outdoorsman so I wasn’t too concerned about getting back out of the mountains. What did bother me was that we were in a two wheel drive van with no snow tires and no chains. I had been around some in ice and snow driving conditions and knew that the forestry road would present some challenges. We were soon to find out that we were totally unprepared for what we had to face. Being snowed in in the mountains in a drop camp was tame in comparison to what was coming next.

The hunting trip in the high Rockies

While flipping the pages of the current issue of the American Hunter magazine I came across a good article about hiring hunting guides/outfitters. As I read I was translated in my mind back to 1983 when I and two of my friends hired an outfitter to take us to a drop camp near the east fork of the San Juan River in southern Colorado. I had no idea of what to expect and would not have ventured on such a trip but one of my friends, Howard Simon, had been the previous year with the same outfitter. The trip that year had been successful and Howard had taken a nice bull elk. He invited me to go along and on the strength of Howard’s word I signed on for the trip and put in my deposit.
