Panfish Time, Cormorant Hunting and Fair Chase Debate in Lone Star Outdoor News


Hot weather in Texas means panfish anglers are finding bluegills, along with redear and green sunfish on the beds. Throwing anything small at these fun-to-catch fish will elicit bites right now. Read about the state’s hotspots in this issue of Lone Star Outdoor News, available today on newsstands and online at

Also in this issue, the debate is raging in Texas about what constitutes fair chase in hunting. Some, like the Pope and Young Club, believe anything behind a high fence, no matter what size, is not fair chase. Others vocally disagree. Get all of the viewpoints in the hunting section of this issue.

Along with the fair chase debate, LSON takes a look at South Carolina’s recent cormorant hunt and how Texas might be eyeing that season as a precursor for its own season in the future. In fishing, read about a lake record white bass, one of the pioneering kayak guides on the Texas coast and how grass carp are affecting some of the best bass lakes in the state.

As always, we have the most accurate fishing reports and our popular Game Warden Blotter recounting tales of some of the dumbest poachers in the state.
