Rattlesnakes. Say the word fast or slow and it still demands total respect. Even to veteran rattlesnake hunters such as Harold Hastings. He had invited me to hunt rattlesnakes on a hunting lease near his Chico home. Before ascending the rocky hill. Hasting had buckled on a pair of Fiberglas snake leggings — wraparound protection from the top of his leather boots to above his knees Most veteran rattlesnake hunters will agree that leather will stop the fangs of most striking rattlesnakes. "I won t hunt without them.” Hastings said. “It just isn t worth taking a chance.” 'They are sluggish when they first come out of their dens,” Hastings said. "They are still cold, and they justFishing Report lie at the mouths of their dens and soak up the sun. But it doesn’t take long for them to start moving Once they get warm enough, they will start traveling about. And they’re really hungry.” Hastings said a rattlesnake will travel about one mile away from his den on the average, feeding on rats, mice birds and any other small creatures he can catch On our hunt, we split apart to cover more territory The steep hill was covered with so many rocks and boulders that, in order to study the backside of every rock, we could take only a step or two at a time To catch a snake once he is spotted, Hastings uses a metal snake stick a 4 foot bar with a hinged clamp on one end that’s activated by a squeeze-type handle at the other The snake stick I used belongs to Danny Hastings Harold’s son, who has become a master at working w ith rattlesnake skins In fact, he has made several guitar straps out of rattlesnake skins for such country western singers as Roy Clark. Loretta Lynn and George Strait Rattlesnake skins also are used to make other things AUSTIN AB Here is the weekly fishing report as compiled by the Texas Barks and Wildlife Department for April IO: CENTRAL BASTROP Water clear. 72 degrees, normal level, black bass fair to four pounds on Skipjacks in fairly shallow water; hybrid striper slow . crappie fair at night under lights to 25 fish per string on minnows and jigs. yellow catfish fair to IS pounds on live perch BELTON Water clear, 70 degrees, nor mal level, largemouth bass good to 21 pounds on minnows smallmouth bass good to five pounds on crawfish colored cranks in shallow water in the evening, striper poor, crappie fair on minnows to 20 fish per string white bass good on live shad to 55 fish per string in shallow water at night cattish fair to I1 _• pounds to IU fish per person drifting shrimp over sandbars More fishermen using lake during week than on w eekend BUCHANAN Watei clear. <>f> degrees one foot low black bass good to five pounds on Bagley ’s hot blue cranks, striper good to l l pounds on Bagley s chrome chatter baits crappie good with strings to 25 tish on blue and white jigs iii shallow water white bass good to loo fish per string on pearl 1. ii Georges. catfish good to six pounds on shad baited trotline CANYON Water clear 69 deqiees, nor mal level; larqemouth bass good to S’2 pounds on worms and deep diving cranks, smallmouth bass qood to tour pounds on tour inch smoke or salt and pepper ringworms, striper fair to eight pounds schooling early and tate running with white bass on L ii Georges topwater chug gers or poppers crappie qood at mqht fair in day to 25 fish per string, fish full of eggs movinq toward shallow water white bass good schooling off main lake points early and late or all day durmq cloudy days catfish fair to 41. pounds on shrimp or chicken livers GIBBONS CREEK Water fairly clear. 7u degrees, normal level black bass fairly good in slot and below a few keepers over 21 inches returned to the lake on spinners topwaters and dark worms and lizards crappie fairly good to near limits on min nows mostly in the evenings, catfish good on chicken livers Few fishermen midweek LBJ VVater murky. 67 degrees, normal level, black bass good to 4'_> pounds on Storm s Wiggle Wart blue pearl, striper good to IU pounds on Bomber Silver Shad crappie good to 25 fish per string on white glitter grubs; white bass good to 60 fish per string on Sassy Shad; catfish good to seven pounds on trotline with shad Good numbers of fish over weekend STILLHOUSE Water clear. 59 degrees, normal level, black bass good to 2’ pounds with topwater transparent torpedoes and jitterbugs near shore early morning, hybrid striper good near bridge to 44 pounds on slabs and shrimp, jigs minnows crappie good to 25 fish per string near the bridge and around marina at night on minnows, white bass good around marina at night to IU fish per string on min nows and jigs. catfish good to 59 pounds on trotline with live bait. channel catfish good to four pounds on cutbait TRAVIS Water clear. 69 degrees.

During hot summer months air conditioning costs can eat up over half of your electric bill. But did you know by using ceiling fans you can lower those costs and still stay cool? The way to use a ceiling fan to lower your cooling costs is to raise your thermostat setting when you use the fan. You can actually raise your thermostat as much as 6 degrees and ex perience no loss of comfort when using a ceiling fan This difference can make a /Bd room feel like it's 72°F Ceiling fans work to keep you cool by circulating, instead of cooling, the air Air blowing across your skin makes you feel 4 to 6 degrees cooler than the temperature really is And all this comfort comes from a ceil mg fan that takes as little energy to operate as a single light bulb.
