Lots of trout are being caught on the lower end of Sabine Lake.

There is no way you can complain about the weather here in Southeast Texas over the past week or so. The last weekend in August, a north wind set the stage for some excellent fishing in the surf from the Sabine jetties to the Galveston jetties.

Doves, ducks, deer and gators are on the hunting menu here in Southeast Texas.

We are just about there. Dove season starts Sept. 1, teal season is Sept. 12, bow season on deer opens Oct. 3, alligator season is Sept 10, and Oct. 1 is the East Texas squirrel season opener. It’s definitely prep time for hunting in Southeast Texas.
