Hunting And Fishing In our report last Thursday we mentioned having 92 deer registered -by Baytown hunters this year but it finally came out 29 instead of 92 thus lopping of about three tons of vension with one little typographical error. It worked out pretty well, however, because so •many hunters called our hand on the number that we learned of 30 more bucks killed, bringing the new total to 122. MH.NER UNHAPPY Probably the unhappiest fisherman in Baytown is W. S. Milner because he let a relative in Bay City talk him into going to Tres- palacios instead of the mouth of the Colorado River last Saturday when all the good fishing took placa there. Milner fished a while along the flats at the mouth of the Colorado Friday and caught 27 good trout, but Saturday was the day when hundreds of big trout wore caught and Willis was at the Trcsplacicus catching eight to ten- inch fish. COLORADO MTJDUV H. H. Haralson came in telling about he. Sonny Ellisor, Erwin Prir.zal and Don Dittman catching 62 big specks Saturday at the lower end of the Colorado, and that along with reports of other big catches from there persuaded L. J. Choato and I to take our wives down to show them how to catch big trout, A rise on the river beat us there, naturally, and we caught exactly nothing in the muddy water. The girls soon tired of that fishless fishing and built a big fire to keep warm and we ended up having one swell weiner roast. The weather reports show By Jim Nelson the crest of this little muddy rise on the Colorado to 'be at Wharton now so it will take about a week to run down. MONTH OF BIG BASS We have been running a bass fishing contest for five years now and looking back over the records we find that all the really big bass have been brought in during the »month of<>January with February running a close second- Those fish begin to spawn this time of year making them strike artifical lures in a vicious manner. Scotty's camp at the Highland Reservoir reports several big bass being caught in the clear spots around the moss beds on the north side of the reservoir during the last week. COTTON BAVOU CATCH Bill Gauntt reports Cotton Bayou clear and producing good strings of white perch. Bill has been putting out a few big set lines in the bayou, too, and with the aid of some big live mullet caught three yellow catfish weighing 38',::, 37'/i and 14 pounds. • • • PRUETT WANTS SHELLS Frcamon Pruett wants some .50 cal. machine gun bullets. We first thought Fresmon was going to scrap his .300 H and H bear gun and go to a .50 cal.. but it turns out that he wants them for decoration in the trophy room of his new home and can't seem to find any of these war souvenirs anywhere. If one of you hunters could supply about four hulls he would be much obliged. A female fly can lay Its first batch of eggs less than a week after its birth.
