Luke Clayton; Larry Large

Veteran Lake Fork guide Larry Large (www.huntingeasttexas.com) joins Luke today and discusses white bass fishing at Fork. A decade or so ago, white bass were extremely scarce at Lake Fork but in the past few years, these prolific spawners have gained a strong foothold. Savvy anglers like Large are still catching plenty of largemouth bass but now, there is an abundant "food fish" that is usually more than willing to bite!

An ordinance to restrict bathrooms based on the sex listed on one’s birth certificate failed to make it to a vote Monday May 2nd in Rockwall. The ordinance introduced by Mayor Jim Pruitt had no other support from the council. Many transgender people and their allies gathered to voice their opposition to the ordinance and saw their wishes fulfilled with the proposal failing…but why it failed may still give pause.
