King mackerel are big, bad and fast, and they can be caught on a variety of lure

Fishing for king mackerel can be big-time fun from 10 to 35 miles off the Sabine jetties. From now until the end of October, they can be caught all day long around baitfish, shrimp boats and the rigs. Probably the most exciting way to catch king mackerel is with a topwater plug or by fishing jigs and spoons around shrimp boats.

While talking to a young man the other day about the Lord and His work, we each spoke about reading the Bible. I was interested to hear the very well educated fellow say, “It doesn’t really do me any good to read the Bible or go to church. I just can’t seem to remember very much of it any time later.” He’s in good company. Well, perhaps not good company, but joined by big numbers.
