Sabine guide Dickey Colburn reports that he’s catching some pretty good numbers of trout and reds on the upper end of the lake. Most of his fish are being caught on soft plastics fished under cork rigs. His best jigs have been Usual Suspects and Li’ Johns.

On the lower end of Sabine Lake, guide Colby Denbow reports good catches of trout and big reds at the jetties on Down South plastics in key lime.

Have you seen how wonderfully landscaped hotels and other public spaces are using the sweet potato vine? Traveling through Houston the other day, I saw esplanades, planters and landscaped areas relying on this humble plant. This beauty is adaptable, too; it works in both sun and shady areas of your yard. The colors are deeper and brighter in full sun than shady areas where they will bring drama and more of a green hue.

Finally the sequel to the beloved (and super popular) animated feature “Finding Nemo.” It’s a mystery why we had to wait so long considering some fish products begin to ripen after a few days — and not in a good way. It’s been 13 years since we’ve checked in with Marlin and Nemo, the father and son clown fish duo, and little Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) the blue tang fish, with the short-term memory issue.
