Photo of the Day – March 4, 2014


Because I enjoy the solitude and slower paced fishing during colder weather, I normally do a lot of wintertime fishing, but this has not been a normal winter, and we haven’t wet many hooks lately. This presents a problem if you have a fishing blog.

Then the other day, I get an offer from Shane Davies to hit a short stretch of the Brazos River near Gholson, Texas. Hell, why not? It was a beautiful day, with a slight overcast and just enough wind to not make too much work of it. Once on the river, Shane graciously

LSC Hank Schyma Ground to Cloud Upward LightningToday’s POTD comes to us courtesy of Hank Schyma, who I had a hard time characterizing for this write up. I guess you could say he’s a tornado chasing, film making, snake loving, honkey tonking, voodoo rock musician; he’s also an

LSC POTD Pelicans DivingAlthough not in Texas, I wanted to share a very cool series of photos taken by wildlife photographer Connie Mier (Connie Mier Photography) of Miami, Florida. She photographed the diving brown pelicans while on an eight day canoe trip in the Florida Everglades with three friends over the holidays. According to Connie, the group came upon the diving

LSC Racoons1Native American lore has it that one night a raccoon donned a mask, and with a torch in hand, broke into a raven’s longhouse to steal his golden rings, which the raven himself had stolen over the years. The clever raccoon created some noise outside the raven’s house, and when the curious bird went to investigate, the raccoon snuck into the

LSC Brady Fog Yakkers

Today’s photo comes to us from Brady Sullivan of Fort Worth, who took this picture of his four kayaking companions on the middle Brazos River during last week’s cold snap. The fog on the river is caused by the colder ambient air temps wicking the moisture, in the form of a vapor, from the air coming off the relatively warm

LSC The Bounty

The bountiful Brazos never disappoints. Whether paddling solo down her water painted canyons or a day trip with my son on Father’s Day, this river never fails to provide, and I don’t just mean fish. I mean the

LSC FA-18 Hornet

Someone sent me this smokin’ photo of a Marine FA-18D taken recently over the skies of El Centro in Southern California. Notice the SH on the vertical tail; that’s Sierra Hotel, which IDs the aircraft as belonging to the Sharpshooters of VMFAT-101 out of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in Southern California.

I had the

LSC The Changing Catch

I was looking through some old pictures and ran into this one of me and Dan from back in 2009 on our inaugural kayak fishing trip. We were with Shane Davies on the upper Brazos River slow trolling a honey hole near Garland Bend and Dan was paddling about 40 yards behind me. All was quiet when

What makes a good fishing buddy? She likes chasing bait; and doesn’t mind walking a kayak up the river shallows. Enter Mia Guerrero, age 8, from Lewisville, Texas, who I recently got to spend some time with on the Brazos River. I liked what I saw. She’s
