A cold morning of fishing on Lake Tenkiller

December 9, 2011

I went fishing with Jason Wickware Saturday morning at Lake Tenkiller. When we got there, it was cloudy, 47 degrees and the wind was blowing out of the east at 13 mph. When the wind blows out of the east, fish bite least!
I knew it was going to be tough fishing, but Jason caught a three-pound largemouth, and I pulled in a little smallmouth two casts later. But that would prove to be all we'd catch for a while.
The rain came down hard, along with some very strong winds. We caught only three more fish the rest of the day. Any day of fishing is better than working!

My good buddy, Wister Baseball Coach John McAlester, took his son, Gunner, on a hunt this last weekend near Wilburton. Gunner got a shot at a five-point buck, and he made the most of the opportunity shooting the buck right behind the front shoulder and dropping it within a few yards.
