This week, Luke visits with Andrew Sandstrom with Gunnison Crested Butte tourism (www.gunnisoncrestedbutte.com). There is much in the outdoors to enjoy in the Gunnison Valley, a destination Luke has enjoyed visiting for many years.
Let’s face it, what’s tastier than a crispy fried fish fillet? A family fish fry is a time honored event with many of us and one that this old outdoors writer plans to keep going but, there are other very tasty ways to prepare the fish we enjoy catching so much!
I am about to introduce many of you to Mr. Chris Watson, aka. “Catman”. Many of you avid fishermen will know Chris who has guided at Richland Chambers Reservoir for many years. I hope we can all pull together and provide Chris and his family with a bit of help; he is going through some very tough health problems and will undergo a major surgery in a matter of days.
My grandson Luke Zimmerman, Jeff Rice and myself arrived at our cabin at Mill Creek Resort on Lake Texoma an hour or so before dark last week on the eve of a long anticipated top water striper fishing trip with my friends at Striper Express. Bill Carey had been telling me all about the awesome top water action for the past couple weeks and we were chompin at the bit to get after them. There is something very addictive about watching a big striper attack a topwater plug.
