"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

A Great Trip

Despite the alligators, we caught three in three days, it was another great fishing trip on the Trinity.  I’m blessed to be a member of a large extended family with many different interests.  Thankfully, one of those members enjoys sharing his hobby with me.  Within a half hour of arrival we were on the river in the cousins boat.  He had some lines out, and we set a few more.  Monday morning found us taking lots of fish off the lines.

Tuesday was a repeat of Monday, with another big one in the mix.  Mondays largest was 17 lbs. and Tuesdays hit the scale at 22 lbs.

Hard to believe fishing this good so close to Houston.  Pipeline crossings everywhere along the river.

Twelve different ones at this one location.  Gasoline, oil, CO2, chemicals I cant even spell.  There were even abandoned ones back in the woods.  Wonder what they carried back in the day?

Overall, it was another great trip to the Texas low country.

Lots of fishing, eating, and just plain old visiting on the river bank.  Till next time……..jc


  1. Love that last picture. Even the dog is enjoying sitting on a lawn swing overlooking the river. How very peaceful that looks.

  2. Now those are some buckets of fish!

    It seems like I read about a hot air balloon rally in Alabama in May. Will you and Wanda be going to that one?

    1. Alabama Jubilee in Decatur, AL; over Memorial Day weekend. Great festival. Can't make it this year. Grand daughter graduating in Natchez on Friday night of event. Hopefully, we'll make it again next year.

  3. Big J next time take largeer hooks, so the BIG ones won't get away.


Thanks for looking, and comments are welcome.
