Lone Star Outdoors with Cable Smith

No Comments

This week on the Lone Star Outdoors Show, we kick things off by talking with shark angler Tim McClellan of League City, Texas. Tim recently caught a tournament winning and new state record hammerhead shark that measured 14.5 inches and weighed 1033 lbs! We get the firsthand recount of this once in a lifetime catch that took 3 hours to reel in even while chasing the fish down in a 30 foot off shore boat!

Then we take a look at some concerning news coming out of Northern California and the conservation impact that it might have. Last week, the 2nd ever wolf pack was discovered in Northern California, the implications for deer and other cervid species could be huge as wolves continue their Southwestern expansion.

Next we are joined by Dr. Nancy Rabalais of Louisiana State University. We’ll discuss the Dead Zone in the Gulf where life ceases to exist due to a lack of oxygen in the water. The area, void of sealife is the size of the state of Vermont this year, the largest Dead Zone on record. Dr Rabalais tells us what causes it and how humans can help prevent it going forward.
Then we discuss summertime blues with Greg Pavur of Pavur Outdoors. Greg is on the blue catfish bite as usual and he tells us where to find ’em and how to catch them.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio!

iStock/Thinkstock(MINNEAPOLIS) — The Minnesota Twins are close to acquiring left-handed starter Jaime Garcia in a trade with the Atlanta Braves for a minor league player, according to ESPN sources.

Garcia has a history of shoulder trouble and was 10-13 with a 4.67 ERA for the Braves last season.

Garcia spent most of his injury-interrupted career with the St. Louis Cardinals before he was acquired by the Braves in an offseason trade.

In his eight seasons with St. Louis he went 62-45 with a 3.57 ERA. In 2011, he won a World Series with the Cardinals.

DigitalVision/Thinkstock(BOSTON) — The Boston Celtics are expected to sign free-agent point guard Shane Larkin, a league source tells ESPN.

Larkin was the No. 18 pick in the 2013 NBA draft and last played for the NBA during the 2015-2016 season for the Brooklyn Nets.

This summer the Celtics have signed nine players inlcuding All-Star Gordon Hayward. There are only six returning players on the team’s current roster: Isaiah Thomas, Al Horford, Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier.

Earlier this week, the Celtics signed small forward Paul Pierce so he could retire as a member of the team.

Phil Ellsworth / ESPN Images(HOUSTON) — Dikembe Mutombo is interested in getting into NBA ownership and wants to find partners to join a bid for the Houston Rockets.

Mutombo told Houston’s Fox 26 Sports, “I’m trying to convince some people about trying to buy this team. It’s one of the best franchises right now. It’s really the right time.”

Mutombo felt that he missed his opportunity to own a team when the Atlanta Hawks were sold in 2015.

Mutombo ended his 18-year NBA career playing for the Rockets between 2004 and 2009. He spoke highly of the team to Houston Fox 26 Sports: “The Rockets are a great franchise. They have a great team. They’ve got great coaches, great basketball player, great staff.”

Currently there is no set date for selling the team. The Houston Rockets CEO Tad Brown will oversee the process of selling the franchise.
