News, articles and updates about fishing and hunting destinations and pursuits in Texas and across the globe

Texas bass fishing is akin to Texas deer hunting. You don’t have to go far to find the big ones. Many of the state’s more than 2 million resident anglers have started their pursuit of finding the lunker of a lifetime, while some already have hit the jackpot. There have been...
Lake Alan Henry near Lubbock may not be producing largemouths for the Toyota ShareLunker program the way it did from 2004 to 2006 when it churned out 18 entries exceeding 13 pounds, but its depths have given up another type of lunker -- the spotted bass. Erik Atkins of Lubbock...
The best-kept secret in the early 1990s in Brownwood surprisingly had nothing to do with high school football, the next man to follow in the legendary footsteps of Gordon Wood or the juicy details of a Lions-Yellow Jackets rivalry that Stephenville later would dominate when our family moved there. Instead...
Texas bass fishing is way ahead of the pack. And you can thank biologists and even Mother Nature for helping our state harbor the best largemouth angling in the country. Bassmaster Magazine recently released its list of the best 100 U.S. bass lakes and Texas again led the way with nine...
On the final day of duck season, Baffin Bay hunting is measured in hours and minutes. And the clock is ticking. A looming full moon peeking ominously through faint bands of wispy clouds greets the pair of droning bay boats flanked by the unmistakable mist of salty spray that always hovers...

WAILUPE BEACH, OAHU -- As he skulked along the shore with his steely gaze on the translucent shallows, Ollie Owens somewhat resembled a bear looking for its next scaly feast in an Alaskan stream. The veteran fly fishing guide was intently studying the water, hoping it would give up...
The bowed salmon rods bounced slightly each time the flasher and the hoochie at the end of their lines dragged through the strong current and met a mass of schooling herring that were balled up in tight groups, hoping safety in numbers was still the way to travel. The wiggling...
SOLDOTNA, Alaska — A salmon by any other name wouldn’t taste as sweet. Few say blueback. Many say red. Most say sockeye. However this marvel is described, the fish that run the gauntlet of gnashing teeth, claws and jaws from the time they’re fry into the prime of their lives are nothing short...
HOPKINS VILLAGE, Belize – Permit, bonefish and tarpon beckoned from mangrove-flocked cayes dotting glistening saltwater flats, but our bountiful reward had nothing to do with recompense gained via measured swings of a fly rod. In reality, the true treasures of this small country nestled below the Yucatan Peninsula in Central...
