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

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.

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

OH Ivie 01

Today’s POTD comes to us from North Texas kayak angler Mike Whitacre, who traveled to a reservoir named O. H. Ivie looking for the fat bass known to inhabit the central Texas impoundment. According to Mike, they knew they’d be dodging thunderstorms that day and sure enough, within a few hours of putting in, a storm rolled in forcing them to retreat back to shore.
