Because Life is Better at the Lake



Tom Behrens has over 50 years experience in fishing and hunting across the United States. Much of this time was spent in Oklahoma and Texas where he became very familiar with the outdoor opportunities in these states. You may contact him by email at:

Memorial Day is when we remember the Men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedoms, so that their sacrifice is never forgotten. If you’re planning to fish over Memorial Day weekend, we challenge you to honor these heroes by completing a red, white and blue slam.

To carry out this slam, you have to catch fish that have the words red, white or blue in their name - at least one fish for each color. Post a photo of your red, white and blue slam our Facebook, on Twitter or Instagram pages with the hashtag#fishredwhiteblue.

Suggested freshwater species: redear sunfish, redbreast sunfish, red drum; white bass, white crappie; bluegill, blue catfish; suggested saltwater species: red snapper, red drum, red grouper, white marlin, white mullet, whiting, blue marlin, blue runner, and bluefish.

Don’t forget to check your freshwater and saltwater fish bag and length limits and to carry your fishing license. Active Texas military and disabled veterans always fish for free with their designated licenses. And everyone fishes for free in Texas state parks.

Many fallen service members loved the sport of angling. While you’re fishing this Memorial Day weekend, take a moment to remember the sacrifice they made to provide freedom for us all.
