Hot weather and good fishing — both are plentiful

I stopped in and visited with Jim Miller of Poteau on Tuesday afternoon to talk about Lake Texoma, and learn a little about jug fishing.
Jim came to eastern Oklahoma back in 1961 while working in the oil field and, like many others, he liked this part of the country and decided that this was the place for him to live. Over the years, he has farmed and raised chickens along with working in the oil field, but he has always loved catfishing. He said that Lake Texoma is the best place to catch them.
