Denton, May 4— "Thirty-foot" tales
are now in order, since the Texas
fishing seiason has opened. As the
yearly trek to water holes through-
'out the state begins, old Isaac Wal-
| on should thrill at the variety of fish
'and fishermen native of the Lone
Classifying Texas anglers accord-
ing to the prey they seek, there are
the freshwater sportsmen who want a
good fighting fish, such as spotted
and large-mouthed block bass or the
handsome yellow bass. On the coast
"Silver King," or tarpon has won the
title of "greatest of game fish" and
more daring anglers set out every
year to find at 30 to 300 pound speci-
men of him or of a Sheepshead, an-
other popular fighter.
The "barefoot boys" go after little
Blue-spotted Sunfish and the familiar
Rock Bass, both of which are found
in ponds, creeks and rivers around
patches of vegetation. Other common
freshwater varieties out of the 130
represented in this state are the six-
inch blue and red eared Sunfish, the
loot-long crappies or White Perch,
the long, slender, destructive Little
Pickerels in East Texas, and the
whole family of Catfish.
The bad name given to Catfish is
unfounded, since the blue and spotted
varieties caught in the Trinity and
San Jacinto rivers are excellent to
eat, and caviar is made from the eggs
oi the spoon-bill cat in East Texas.
I'he yellow mud cat, which is more
\ oracious and less cleanly in it? hab-
its, somewhat merits the shady repu-
Connoiseurs searcjj for Poinpano,
the royalty of Texas salt water fish
so lar as taste and price are concern-
ed. Weighing about low pounds, it is
no more a game fish than members
of the Weakfish family, so-called be-
cause they are easliy torn in catch
mg. These are known as tenderioii
trout to restaurant goers, and rank
lust in quality and quantity combin-
ed, the commercial catch for i'J30 be
mg over 1,043,000 pounds.
Money-making fishermen also fav-
or the larger salt water species, the
opanish Mackerel, averaging eight
pounds, the Gulf Pike, which some-
times reaches twenty pounds, and the
lied Snappers, those rosy, valuable
.;0 pound fish that are easily shipped
and readily marketed. Not to be left
out are the flounders, croakers and
uie Gulf .Menhaden, whose abundance
makes them peculiarly suited to their
use as food for all other fish.
A traveler said to the conductor of
a slow train: "Does the railroad allow
passengers to give advice?"
ihe conductor replied gruffly, that
lie thought so.
"It occurred to me," said the tra-
veler, "that it would be as well to de-
tach the cow catcher from the front
ol the engine and bolt it on to the
rear, for what is to prevent a cow
irom strolling into this car and biting
one of the passengers?"
Miss Bess Browidee spent tht week
end visiting relatives in Abilene.
