Re: Second COVID-19 Positive Result in Hunt County

http://www.huntcounty.net/

The Hunt County Commisioner's Court has issued a disaster declaration for the county that details a shelter-in-place, or "stay at home" order. The order goes into effect Tuesday at 11:59 p.m. and directs all non-essential employees and businesses to cease activity or stay at home except for essential activities and business. 

Creek fishing often produces a ‘mixed creel’. Luke landed white and yellow bass, crappie and catfish this past week on a fishing trip above Lake Fork.

CREEKS PROVIDING GOOD FISHING IN TRANQUIL SETTING

by Luke Clayton

As I sloshed along the muddy trail leading to the secluded section of creek I planned to fish, I found myself stopping occasionally not only for a short ‘breather’ but also to admire the sights and smells of early spring. Buds were swelling on the trees, tiny leaves were beginning to appear. Birds were voicing their joy that they had survived yet another winter and it was time to go about their work of procreating.

I first fished with my friend guide Jason Barber about 12 years ago while doing the legwork for a magazine article on Cedar Creek Lake. I remember asking Jason what species we were going to fish for. His replied with a question, “What do you wish to catch”? Through the years I’ve witnessed him back up that statement many times by putting me on some red hot catching for hybrid stripers, white bass, largemouth, trophy class blue catfish and ever the most finicky of all freshwater fish, crappie.

Fishing remote waters where fish have never seen a lure is what a trip to a remote lodge in Saskatchewan is all about.  Luke is heading back this summer for his fourth trip ‘up north’.  Fishing up here is addictive, the beautiful scenery and great fishing
Luke Clayton

Ever since I was a boy dunking minnows in Pecan Bayou near our home in Red River County, I dreamed of heading to the wilds of Canada to catch big northern pike, lake trout and walleye. I remember reading all about this fishing wonderland in magazines and back then never dreamed that one day, I would actually experience the thrill of tossing a big plug over a shallow weed bed and hooking into a pike almost as long as a boat paddle or, catching those great eating walleye and enjoying a shoreline lunch prepared over a wood fire.  

FISHING UP NORTH

In the past five years, I’ve had the opportunity to make three fishing trips to remote fly-in fishing camps in northern Saskatchewan and am planning my fourth adventure this summer.

Luke speaks with Jeff Rice about squirrel hunting this week
Luke Clayton

Join Luke and his guest and good friend Jeff Rice for a tutorial on hunting squirrel during the breeding season (rut). Most hunters are aware of the whitetail rut and know that it is the best time to harvest a wise old buck when he lets his guard down. Squirrels mate twice a year and right now is the peak of the squirrel (rut). No better time to collect the makings of a big pot of squirrel stew or dumplings!

The topic of Luke's outdoor show today is deer hunting. He used his 45 caliber Airforce Airguns Texan air rifle on the Dale River Ranch (www.daleriverranch.com) to harvest his first ever whitetail buck with an air rifle.

Lake Tawakoni catfish guide Tony Pennebaker with one of many ‘eater’ size catfish landed this past week. Trophy blue catfish are biting well but on this trip, Luke was after the makings of a big fish fry and that’s exactly what Pennebaker produced.
Luke Clayton

As I walked up on the dock this past week at Lake Tawakoni Marina, I was greeted by catfish guide Tony Pennebaker. I could tell by the expression on his face that he had something humorous on his mind. “Fryers or trophy” he asked as I walked up to his guide boat. “Knowing you, Luke I think I already know what your answer will be!”

When I first discovered the power of modern day air rifles about 8 years ago at an outdoor show in Waco, I was amazed at their power and accuracy. John McCaslin, president of Airforce Airguns invited me to the Airforce Airguns booth and indoor range to shoot one of his companies .25 caliber PCP (Pre-Charged Pneumatic) rifles. I think John could see that I was eager to learn more and I was  invited to visit the company’s plant in Ft. Worth and found myself thoroughly enjoying a totally new (new to me) style of sporting arm.
