Synopsis of Episode 65:
Most of us don’t have any state record fish to our names, much less three of ’em. But three is how many angler Charles Dewey has after landing a state record Rio Grande Cichlid a couple weeks ago. Charles stops by to talk about his 1.87 lb monster he caught using a pole and line method on Lake Dunlap outside of New Braunfels.
Then one of Texas’ great singer/songwriters joins us live in studio. Guthrie Kennard has been everywhere and played with just about everyone. His tune ‘Catfish Fishin’ is one of the greatest fishing songs ever written. Guthrie will play it for us as well as discuss growing up on a river in the 1950’s. It was definitely a different time and way of life.
We round out the show by checking in with Texas Ranger first baseman Mitch Moreland. Mitch joined me on a spring turkey hunt with Silver Creek Guide Service. A lifelong waterfowler and deer hunter, Mitch was able to bag his first spring gobbler on this hunt. A trophy tom with a 9 1/2 inch beard! Not a bad way to spend an off day before heading on a 10 day road trip.
