BIG CATFISH BITE ON AT TAWAKONI

My phone conversation with Lake Tawakoni catfish guide Tony Pennebaker went something like this. “Luke, I know you are all about catching these ‘eater’ blues weighing between 2 and 10 pounds rather than specifically targeting trophy class fish but you might just catch both on our upcoming trip. The fall bite has been very steady,” says Tony.

NO SHORTAGE OF TURKEYS IN THE WILD

Turkeys might be in short supply at the grocery store this year but there are plenty of them roaming the woods and fields across much of Texas. Luke arrowed this young gobbler last week on the Dale River Ranch.

Forney Falls to Liberty in Playoffs

The Forney Jackrabbits hosted the Frisco Liberty Redhawks for their First Round Matchup in the Texas 5A State Playoffs last week. The atmosphere was electric as the town came out to support the Rabbits on a cold evening. A win versus the Redhawks last Friday night would result in a second round date with Powerhouse Aledo. The Jackrabbits were unable to overcome a fast start by Liberty, though, and ultimately ended their season with a 45-21 loss at City Bank Stadium.
