Posted by: | Comments (0)

See https://fishgame.com/2020/01/three-tips-for-topwater-tactics/.  For bass fishing you can substitute the saltwater dogwalkers mentioned with Heddon’s Zara Spook, Zara Spook Jr., and Zara Puppy, Xcalibur’s Spittin’ Image, Rapala’s Skitter Rap, etc. and you can substitute the saltwater poppers mentioned with Heddon’s Chuggar Spook or Hula Popper, Storm’s Rattlin’ Chug Bug, Rebel’s Pop-R, etc.

Most Dangerous Thing in The Woods

Posted by: | Comments (0)

See https://fishgame.com/2020/01/the-most-dangerous-thing-in-the-woods-is/.  A very good reason to consider carrying while fishing and hunting, even when carrying a shotgun or rifle.  Bird shot isn’t the best defence against 9mm’s.  Neither is a bolt-action rifle.

Crab Baits With The Snafu Rig

Posted by: | Comments (0)

The Snafu isn’t a rig commonly seen along the Gulf Coast, which is no wonder since it’s main use is for tautog fishing in the northeast Atlantic.  So, why might we be interested in this rig?  See https://fishgame.com/2020/01/crab-baits-with-the-snafu-rig/.

Daryl Shipper commented:  Interesting setup for crab as the only downside is you would lose two hooks when caught up on the bottom when you get snagged.

An interesting and accurate read, unfortunately –  see https://www.themeateater.com/conservation/habitat/fading-at-50-why-older-sportsmen-are-spending-less-time-afield?utm_source=MeatEater%20Subscribers&utm_campaign=aefb5f0cdb-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_12_04_06_55&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_e4b2ec63b4-aefb5f0cdb-67723897&mc_cid=aefb5f0cdb&mc_eid=6921856762

But I have a way to prevent it – go on an FCS event.  We have over 70 to choose from each year.  See our Calendar and Upcoming Events web page for details.

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.

Dick’s Sporting Goods just sent another loud message that it is anti-gun and anti-hunting. I, Randy Rowley, stopped shopping there when they announced their AR-15 ban. Now, I’m announcing that I will not post any Dick’s sales, events, etc. on this website. They are clearly our enemy. See

Samson Society Men’s Group

Posted by: | Comments (0)

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.

Holy Smoke LLC will, for a price, load cremated human ash into shotgun shells and rifle and pistol cartridges.  For $850 they will load one pound of ash into 250 shotgun shells, mixing the ash into the cups that hold the shot.  The same amount of ash will fill the bullets of 100 standard caliber center-fire rifle rounds or 250 pistol rounds.  The put the ash in the tips of hollow point bullets and seal the cavity with wax.  Tim Godwin, a Montgomery, Alabama landscaping company owner and avid hunter, says he sees no problem with the practice.  “People have had their ashes sprinkled in rivers and the ocean, there have been ashes spread out of airplanes,” he said.  “If you love hunting or the outdoors, this really isn’t much different.”  For more information see www.myholysmoke.com.

Reflections of a New Deer Hunter

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Eric Liu’s story of his first deer hunt with Bret Mercer last November at Bret’s parents-in-law’s ranch near Comanche has been published in “The Truth About Guns” (a great news gathering site about all things gun).  The story is about God’s goodness, Christian fellowship, and the joys of hunting.  One commenter noted, as you said, that my hunting career goes all downhill from here on out.  See:

The award was presented last week at the annual TU meeting in Madison, WI to Mark Dillow, GRTU Chapter President.  The Golden Trout award signifies GRTU as the top Trout Unlimited chapter for this year, out of about 380 chapters nationwide.  Each year chapters are nominated and one chapter is selected by the Trout Unlimited national leadership. The criteria is based on the chapter’s performance in several areas including conservation, education, community service, and support of Trout Unlimited’s goals of protection, restoration, reconnection and sustaining our cold water fisheries.  The award recognizes the cumulative efforts of many leaders and volunteers over the past years to build this chapter into the largest chapter in the nation, with 5,000 members statewide.
