    He gets down underneath the water and finds them catfish nests the old-fashioned way.

    I call it lazy man's fishing, but when their biting hot and heavy it turns into a job, still a lot of fun though. We can set out twenty jugs a piece, but that's just to much work so we stick with ten and usually take in a pretty good amount of fish. part0.jpg

    A 90-lb alligator snapper weaned me from the idea of it.

    Barely three feet of water and you’re HIS dinner.

    And we won’t talk about being too near this 14’ monster a LONG ways from the bayous and swamps of the Coast. Damned near desert at Choke Canyon Reservoir. Used to run to a Halliburton rig a stones throw from where this bull met his end.

    Hell, gators now show up in Dallas County.

    ‘Course I’ll admit I’ve had bad thoughts over the years about aggravating dogs next door to me. Maybe I could borrow one of them pool floats and see how many beers little Barkie can swim in circles with a Mustad 31/0 hook attached.

    We had people claiming our jugs and fish. Came close to gun play until the game warden showed up. He backed them down and told them he had watched us setting the lines out. We used clear soda bottles and painted the interior with Florescent Paint and we put address labels inside.
