Bassmaster Classic

Alton Jones Jr. won the Central Open on the Red River back in September

I first began fishing with BASS pro Alton Jones over 30 years ago. At that time, he was just out of Baylor and working as a fishing guide on lakes in Central Texas. He was very good at catching both largemouth and smallmouth bass.

While going to Baylor, he met and married Jimmye Sue. After college, she got a job as a nurse, while Alton had thoughts of becoming a professional bass fishing pro.

It’s been a tough few weeks for fishermen on Sabine Lake in the hunt for reds and trout. The water has been muddy enough to walk on, but the good news is that it’s finally beginning to clear up a little bit.

Guide Colby Denbow with Sabine Lake Lodge has been catching reds and trout on the lower end of the lake. He’s also catching a few flounder in the pass.
