I’ve spent the better part of the past couple of weeks fishing on Sabine Lake. During that time, we’ve caught everything but the kitchen sink on a variety of lures from Wedgetail Mullets to Bayou Chubs made by Egret Baits. Without a doubt, the most consistent action has been chasing the birds. That’s where lots of anglers are taking specks, reds and some of the biggest sand trout I’ve ever seen.

As one would suspect, the duck season opening weekend was a good one. Those that hunted spots with water and or food made quick work of limits. By far, teal were the most numerous birds that showed up on the stringers. There were also shovelars, pintail and widgeon also in fair numbers. Since the opening weekend, the last cool front pushed some gadwall and mallards into the area.

Q. I signed a lease with my friend. She now is getting married and wants her name removed from the lease. Even though my credit is good and I can afford the rent, the landlord will not remove her name. What can we do to get her name off the lease? She is having trouble renting another apartment.
