Slot reds in the surf can provide fun tussle

By Capt. Bill Watkins

The sun was straight up and hot as we worked along the almost completely flat surf. The water was clear enough that we could see the bottom plainly around the boat. The first sand bar off the beach was visible under about one foot of water and schools of small finger mullet and pogey cruised nervously in and out of the first and second guts. Occasionally, one of the schools of bait fish would jump out of the water and greyhound (leaping in curved arcs) for a short distance before settling back down. There was obviously something that was under the bait that was causing this behavior but there was nothing else to indicate the presence of game fish. “Something is spooking this bait”, I told my guests.

Anual crappie trip fun

By Capt. Bill Watkins

At dawn this Tuesday morning we awoke to the sound of steady rain falling on the roof of our cabin at Powell Park Marina. We were there for our annual crappie trip with Bart Ewing who operates the 30 ft. crappie barge. It didn’t look good as the tropical wave that has been hanging around the coast since Sunday seemed poised to wipe out our trip. But we were there so we wandered on down to the marina restaurant for breakfast. At least the eggs, bacon, and toast were good, as was the coffee. It was still raining when we finished breakfast so we decided to hang out and see what might develop. Bart was a little concerned about the weather but we remained hopeful. At least there had been no lightning. We sat on a park bench outside the marina store and watched the real time weather radar on two different websites.

Seminoles’ title run ends in Vidor

Randall Luker
The Vidorian

Saturday’s conference championship game lived up to its billing with two high powered teams battling it out on the gridiron, but in the end, the Red Raiders claimed a 30-12 win over the Golden Triangle Seminoles.

The Seminoles struck first with a 35-yard toss from Trey Green to WR Bradley Greene at 10:21 in the first quarter. The score was set up by an Anfernee Dixon interception on the Red Raiders’ opening drive.
