Fresh water may become issue in Sabine Lake

A long cast sent the jig and soft plastic lure  ar out into the muddy waters of Sabine Lake.Keeping a tight line and the rod at the twelve o’clock position as the jig fell it was easy to know exactly when the lure touched down on the mud shell bottom. Then I dropped the rod parallel to the water or three o’clock position and then slowly lifted the rod back to the twelve o’clock position eing careful to stay in contact with the lure all of the time.

The trick of the salt lick is to make it appealing

reading about Daniel Boone and Davey Crockettand other pioneers and pathfinders I would occasionally come across a passage mentioning a “salt lick”. Animals of all kinds would frequent such a place to lick the ground to get at the salt and other minerals to be found at such a place. A lick is a great spot to ambush deer, antelope, bison, elk, and a host of other critters. I always dreamed of finding a lick thinking that if I did it would make for easy pickings.

Monday was a beautiful day for fishing

Early Monday morning this week was one of the most pleasant mornings of this year. The temperature was sixty-five degrees and the sky overhead was blue with a few white puffy clouds. To the east over the Louisiana marsh the sun was hanging just over the marsh like an orange ball. The white clouds in that direction had a pinkish orange hue. There was just enough dust or mist in the air to mute the brightness of the sun so that it could be viewed without the aid of sunglasses.
