Outdoors: Cooking your catch is part of the experience


In my opinion, cooking some of your catch is a major element of the fishing experience.

Bass fishermen have been educated to catch and release so often that some guys consider killing a fish almost a sin.

Take Lake Bastrop, for example.  

Most of the bass caught at the best bass lake in Texas will be in the slot. All bass between 14 and 21 inches are protected. They must be released, but five small fish per fishermen under the 14 inches may be retained to eat.

Editor’s Note: This story was originally published in the summer edition of Texas Campbell’s Texas Football.

There is a phrase that head coach Dennis Franchione uses to describe the players who fit well at Texas State.

He calls them “our kind of guy.”

In other words, the Bobcats seek out players who have a chip on their shoulders.

Well, it would be hard to find someone who fits that saying better than senior wide receiver Jafus Gaines.

Texas State might be the best kept secret in the state.

At least according to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.

The magazine not only ranked the Bobcats ninth in the Texas power poll ahead of UTSA, North Texas and SMU, but named five players to the All-Texas College Teams.

Senior offensive tackle Adrian Bellard and senior cornerback David Mims were named to the first team while junior quarterback Tyler Jones, senior running back Robert Lowe and senior linebacker Trey McGowan were named to the second team.

I was in the eighth grade when I realized my dream was dead.

I was not going to make it to the NBA.

I was barely five feet tall at the time.

I could jump over five paper clips and run the length of the basketball court twice before crashing to the ground in an exhausted heap.

I averaged 0.0 points per game in middle school because, well, I didn’t even make the team.

My basketball IQ was there. My basketball ability, which just so happens to be important, was not.

Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt watches the ball head toward the wall for a home run.

MLB: A lack of recognition? Goldschmidt says he ‘couldn’t care less’

Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) — No one in the majors, no position player anyway, is having a better season than Paul Goldschmidt.

He leads both leagues in hitting (.356) and on-base percentage (.474). He is at or near the top in virtually every other offensive category. And he might be the best defensive first baseman in the game, too.

Yet national attention, such as that showered on Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper, eludes the man his Arizona teammates call “America’s First Baseman.”
