LSC Hogs of lewisvilleSometimes when you’re fishing, strange things happen. The latest example comes to us from a north Texas kayak angler named Henry Shipes who was fishing Lake Lewisville just north of Dallas a few days ago. He heard a commotion coming from the flooded brush on the bank behind him, and when Shipes turned to look, a huge herd
