I wouldn’t be planning a trip to Lake Fork if I knew where this farm pond was located.
Richard Minyard, secretary of the North OKC Bassmasters club, sent along this photo of the 12 pound, 15-ounce largemouth bass that he caught out of a Shawnee area farm pond on July 4.
I know better than to ask where.
I covered the county and federal courthouses for more than 10 years, writing about dozens of murder trials and other grisly crimes. The only time anyone ever threatened to whip my butt was when I took over the outdoors beat and was doing a story about fishing below the Lake Eufaula dam.
One of the locals didn’t like the fact that I was sharing information about his favorite fishing hole. Never knew that being an outdoor writer could be such a dangerous job?
