I mentioned last week that there has been a mini-flounder run in and around Lake Sabine. By mini-run, I mean that there are some good numbers of legal-size flatfish showing up in most anglers ice boxes. The folks that choose to fish in Louisiana, have launched their boats there and have a Louisiana fishing license have taken limit catches of the flukes. Keep in mind that the Texas regulations on Lake Sabine are much different than those in our neighboring state.

Mother’s Day is not just a one-day-a-year thought for Staci Richards, busy mom and business owner. She thinks about it almost every day all year long. And the thinking and work she does often goes on far into many nights, as well. It also involves lots of communication, travel, gift buying, wrapping or packaging, and giving and listening. The stories she hears are amazing and ones she’ll never be able to forget.
