On a cool and overcast Saturday in mid-January, three friends and I headed to the marsh between Corpus Christi and Port Aransas for a weekend of duck hunting.  We made it to our launch point at Wilson’s Cut a little after sunrise.

The blasts of several shotguns going off in the distance greeted us as we unloaded the kayaks (yaks) from Greg Souther’s trailer.  Mark Dillow brought two yaks – one for himself and one for Kevin Wall, Greg brought one, and I used one that Mark rented one for me at a Corpus Christi yak shop on our way down.

On a hot and muggy morning in late June, Ryan (my son) and I launched at the Marker 37 Marina in Corpus Christi and headed over to the Packery Channel south jetty.  We found a spot devoid of jetty fishermen, put on my Minn Kota Terrova Riptide’s ipilot anchor lock, and started to offer up shrimp, cut bait, and artificial lures.

We caught a few croakers and perch, but no game fish.  We grew tired of losing our shrimp and headed over to the north side of the 361 bridge, where there is a large hole (the water drops from around 7 to 34 feet).  I positioned the boat equal distance between the shore fishermen, put on my ipilot’s anchor lock, and started to fish.

On a Saturday in mid-September my SUV croaked about 100 feet from a clinic in East Austin.  Fortunately I was able to push it into the parking lot.  The next afternoon I waited on a wrecker to come get my SUV.  As I waited, I listened to shotguns blasting in the distance.  After the wrecker left I drove over and found the source of the noise.  On Exchange Blvd. I saw seven parked vehicles and at least 20 hunters in a field who were shooting at dove.

When I got home I called the police to report people hunting in the city limits.  However, the officer informed me that Exchange Blvd. was the city limit.  The field (which was on the west side of the street) was outside of the city limits.  I verified this information with a Travis County sheriff’s deputy, who informed me that the Hardin Corporation owned the field and they allowed people to hunt there without written permission.

On a warm weekend in late March, four friends and I headed to the Hill Country Hog Ranch near Sabinal for a weekend of hunting hogs with sticks and strings, as guns were prohibited.

The ranch had 3300 acres, but its 35 acre rectangular shaped hog pen is what interested us.  The owner kept around 100 hogs in the pen.  Each side had a couple gates that hogs could push open with their snouts, but they would spring shut when they were no long pushing on them; therefore, hogs could get in but couldn’t get out.

On a Friday afternoon in mid-April seven friends and I met Justin Cooper, the owner of Laguna Adventures, at the Marker 37 Marina in Corpus Christi.  Justin owns the Laguna Madre cabin #2 that we were going to stay on.  After settling up with him and getting the GPS coordinates for the cabin we headed to our home away from home.

After we arrived we stowed our non-fishing gear.  We then headed towards The Boat Hole.  We mostly fished with live shrimp, but tried some artificial lures as well.  Daryl Shipper anchored with his iPilot a couple hundred yards from shore.  I elected to try to get as close to the short rock wall as I could.  This proved easier said than done, as we kept running aground.

On an overcast and drizzly day on the second Saturday in September, three friends and I headed to Joel Kirby’s A-OK Ranch near Lometa in Central Texas for a blast and cast (blasting at dove and casting at bass).

The dove were sporadic in the mesquite trees, as they often are in that part of Texas.  Kevin Wall led the way with nine dove, I bagged seven, Mark Dillow bagged two, and Ken Miller bagged one.

After the hunt, we cleaned our dove and put them on ice.  We then headed to Joel’s spring-fed stock tank (pond).  We started off throwing top-water lures and never switched to anything else.

I had one bass hit my Heddon Zara Spook Junior in baby bass color several times, as I was dog walking it back to the shore.  He hit it from behind, in front, below, and he jumped out of the water a couple times and hit it from above.  I concluded that he was the most inept bass that I had ever seen.

Sign now – Protect Port Aransas!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The Port of Corpus Christi Authority (PCCA) is proposing to build a supertanker port at Harbor Island in Port Aransas to service very large crude carriers (VLCCs), each of which holds 2 million gallons and is larger than the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.  Then they’d dredge the ship channel from its current 47 feet to 75-85 feet, generating 56.5 million cubic yards of spoil, risking an oil spill next to a critical estuary, creating congestion in a narrow inlet, and endangering the fishing and tourism industries on which Port Aransas depends.

On the third Saturday in November Ron Denison picked me up for his first deer hunt.  We proceeded to a ranch near Hamilton Pool that Ron had been invited to hunt by the landowner.  By 5:45 AM we were settled in a double deer blind.

About four minutes before legal shooting time a deer suddenly snorted at us to our left.  This was surprising because there was no wind, we weren’t making any noise, and we were wearing full camo including mesh facemasks.  We found two does in our binoculars, one bigger than the other.  One or both continued to snort at us intermittently, about 25 yards away in the woods.   It soon became legal shooting time and I had a clear shot at the bigger doe.

But I had a dilemma.  She was on my side of the blind but our primary mission was to get Ron a deer.  In order for Ron to shoot he would have to lean over me, which would probably make a lot of noise.  As I mulled over what to do the deer walked off.

On the Wednesday afternoon before Thanksgiving I put my safety harness, a light jacket, and my backpack on and walked towards the west side ladder stand on a small property near Round Rock.  As I neared the creek a doe ran out, followed shortly by a decent sized eight point buck.

He was in range but I had three problems.  For starters my binoculars were in my backpack.  I couldn’t tell if he was a legal deer for the county that I was hunting (Williamson), which requires a minimum 13” inside spread.  Secondly my shotgun was unloaded.  Thirdly, he was outside of shotgun range.  I walked slowly up to a big tree that was 10 yards away and tried to use it to hide my movements.  As the buck watched me, I slowly leaned my shotgun against the tree and started to slowly take my backpack off of my back.

Over many years of hunting I’ve heard a lot of sounds – soft, barely audible sounds, loud frightening sounds, crashes, growls, howls, shrieks, and cries of agony.  On a hot Saturday afternoon deer hunt in early October I heard a sound that I had never heard before.

As I driving towards the west side stand on a property that I hunt outside of Round Rock, I was greeted by a doe that ran in front of my truck and then down towards the creek.  She was soon followed by a young 8-point buck in hot pursuit. Read More→

In late March, two friends and I headed to the El Portillo Ranch near Charlotte for a weekend of hog hunting.  When we arrived we were met by the outfitter, who took our money and then showed us around the ranch.

Later that afternoon I took David Chalmers and Warren Hoke to their chosen stands and then headed to mine.  As I was driving down the dirt road I saw what I thought was a stick standing straight up about 50 yards ahead.  I was a little perplexed, as I didn’t remember the stick being there during our tour.

It was a warm Saturday morning on Lake Decker, but that was the norm for early June.  My son, Ryan, his future wife, Claire, and I headed over to the hot water discharge.  I’d caught bass there during a couple late spring trips and thought that it would be a good place to start.

I went halfway up the discharge, shut down the main motor, and started the trolling motor.  After the wake from my boat had dissipated we saw several tiny splashes on the surface of the water.  It looked like rain, but we knew it wasn’t raining as we weren’t getting wet.  It took a few seconds to figure it out due to the darkness – the little splashes were caused by small minnows hitting bugs on the surface.

My second motor boat was a 1989 18’ 4” Champion 184 fiberglass bass boat with a 150 HP Mercury motor.  It proved to be a good bass boat.  It could cruise at 50 MPH with two guys in the boat and 48 MPH with three.  But it had limitations.  For duck hunting it was just a transport vessel, due to its mostly white hull.  As it wasn’t camo, I couldn’t hunt out of it like I could from my previous camo aluminum v-hull boat.  With my bass boat, we’d go to where we were going to hunt, unload our gear, move my boat 75 or so yards away, and cover it with a camo tarp.

Thwarted! by Randy Rowley 8/1/18 ©

It was with considerable anticipation that Roy Brigman and I boarded Dannie Golden’s boat on Lake Ray Roberts on August the 15th for a morning of bass fishing.  Dannie is the owner of Get Bit Guide Service and has a great reputation.  We were booked to fish with Dannie on March the 9th for a half day, but postponed out trip due to a high chance of thunderstorms.  On March the 7th one of Dannie’s clients caught a 15.18 lb. bass, setting a new lake record.  Roy and I knew that we probably wouldn’t catch bass anywhere near that large, as the spawn was long past, but we were hoping to get into some decent sized bass.

Yeti and the 2nd Amendment

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Yeti Coolers has severed ties with the NRA Foundation and dropped its sponsorship of Friends of the NRA banquets around the country.  Many pro-2nd Amendment groups consider Yeti giving the Bird to hunters.  See http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2018/04/daniel-zimmerman/yeti-coolers-drops-nra-affiliation-rtic-coolers-steps-right-in/.

However, Yeti has a different take on how this went down.  See http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/04/24/yeti-calls-nra-claims-inaccurate-says-it-has-unwavering-belief-in-second-amendment.html.

This may be, as Cool Hand Luke famously stated, a failure to communicate.  At the very least, with several businesses pulling the plug on the NRA, it is bad timing on Yeti’s part.

On a chilly Saturday in April, Roland Olivarez and I arrived at Lake Pflugerville for a morning of bass fishing.  We found that we had the lake to ourselves.  But, it wasn’t the cold that was keeping other fishermen, who are usually kayakers, away; it was undoubtedly the projected 15 – 25 MPH winds with gusts up to 30 MPH.

Motor boats are allowed on the lake, but they cannot use their gas motors.  But I couldn’t have broken that rule if I had wanted to, as I had sold my gas motor for parts shortly before this trip (after a piston went bad).  That left my 74 lb. thrust trolling motor and two paddles for propulsion.

Two months before this trip, the trolling motor and paddles weren’t up to the task on a windy day on Lake Decker.  I bought a new 12-volt deep cycle battery shortly before this trip to power the trolling motor, along with an existing one year old 12-volt deep cycle battery.  I felt confident that my trolling motor was now up to the task of handling the projected winds.

On a hot and partly cloudy Monday in June, five fishermen hopped in guide Jay Garrett’s boat on Lake Belton for an afternoon of hybrid bass catching.  After several years of these annual trips I started called them catching trips instead of fishing trips, as we usually engaged in the former.

We ran across to the dam side of the lake and slipped into a cove.  We knew that Jay had found the right spot, as we soon spotted a large school of shad right by the bank.

Jay anchored his boat near the shad, baited a hook with a live shad that he had previously caught, and handed me the rod.  I went and set it as per his instructions – release the bail and pull the mono fishing line from the reel to the first rod guide six times.  As I went to get another rod from Jay, I heard an unmistakable sound – Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!  A fish had hit the first shad!  My wife, Chris, promptly grabbed the rod and started fighting the fish.

On an overcast, but mild Monday in February, two friends and I descended on Lake Decker (aka Walter E. Long), just east of Austin, for a morning of bass fishing from my boat. We launched at the only boat ramp on the lake, in Walter E. Long Metropolitan Park. The weather forecast called for 10 – 20 MPH south winds, but when we got there it was calm, so I decided to head along the Northeast bank using my foot-controlled trolling motor. A piston in the gasoline motor on my boat had stopped working the previous July and, rather than rebuild a 21-year old engine, I sold it for parts. That left the 74 lb. thrust trolling motor and two paddles as our means of propulsion.

Two hours later, and having thrown every type of bait we could think of without success, we decided to head back the way that we had come. The south wind had picked up and we were headed right into it. So I turned my trolling motor up to half power. As we progressed, the wind became stronger, causing me to continue to increase power to the trolling motor. Read More→

Do you have a group of men you can be ‘rot gut honest‘ about your struggles and needs?  All men are fighting against sin in their lives, and many are losing because they don’t have “Traveling Partners” to share the journey, gain encouragement, and biblical support.  Samson Society is a men’s group that supports men in their Christian discipleship and fight against sin, such as isolation, depression, anger, marital issues, sexual temptations and failures, substance abuse, online gaming, and more.  There are two Samson groups in Austin.  One meets at FM 620 & FM 2222 on Thursday nights and the other meets at Wells Branch (North Austin/RR) on Tuesday nights.  If you want to learn more, call FCS member, Mike Hardcastle at 512-423-8710 or visit their website at:  https://sites.google.com/site/samsonnorthaustin/home.

When we were getting ready to leave for an early January coastal blast and cast (duck hunt and bay fishing trip) at Port O’Connor, Daryl Shipper asked me if he could borrow my spare pair of waders, which were made from neoprene.  Daryl had a pair of waders with him, but they weren’t made of neoprene and he knew that the water would probably be cold, due to recent cold fronts.  I said “sure” and we threw them in my truck with the rest of our stuff.  I wasn’t concerned about them because they hadn’t leaked the last time that I had used them about a year prior to this trip.
