We promised some changes in 2018, one of them being more stories about my family. If you are a LSC regular then you already know my son Daniel, who is not only this blog’s primary photographer, but also my paddling companion on most of the trips chronicled here. You may not, however, know about my wife, Luisa, seen here in today’s POTD holding a nice Brazos bass that she recently caught.
We start off the New Year with an intriguing photo of a beautiful bobcat against a sunsetting Texas desert. The photo was taken by Daniel Underbrink, of Adventure on Outdoors. Daniel was also a paddling companion of ours during the 2016 return trip to the Lower Pecos River (which also included Robert Field of YakFishTV who documented the trip for his kayak fishing Youtube channel).
Reveille Peak Ranch, nestled in the Hill Country of central Texas, was the backdrop for a recent Heroes on the Water event. The organization helps our nation’s warriors and veterans to unwind through the therapeutic qualities of kayak fishing. The Fort Hood chapter put on the event and provided all equipment—from kayaks to safety equipment, even the fishing gear was provided for the vets by HOW.

Once there, he waded into the river,
It’s getting to be that time of the year again, when suddenly those game cam pics start to get interesting. We were looking through some a few weeks ago and noticed many of the pics featured this same group of bachelors that have apparently taken up residence near my feeder. This particular photo caught
South Florida kayak angler Christina Weber (www.christinaweberfishing.com) once again graces the pages of Lone Star Chronicles, albeit looking a little wet this time around. The photo, which was taken last May at the second annual Hobie Bass Open on Kentucky Lake, shows a side of tournament fishing not often seen in the magazine pages or fishing
I had an opportunity recently to visit Ogden, Utah where I spent most of my time in the old downtown area known as Historic 25th Street. Today Ogden is known for its ski resorts and proximity to Hill Air Force Base, and so most people don’t know that the Golden Spike completed the first transcontinental railroad in 1869 just fifty
Although I usually prefer to stay behind the camera, I wanted to share this photo of a big Brazos beauty, which I caught in some shallows below Whitney a few weeks ago. I’d been looking for an opportunity to take a nice bass photo in my Ride 135, which along with Dan’s Cuda 12, were provided to us by Mountain Sports (after we lost our boats in
