A fresh start to a new week….

I haven’t done a lot of writing lately or fishing for that matter. Last week was a brutally tough week down here in South Texas on the Highstakesbassin family. My wife and I made the call on Thursday to put our black lab Max down. Many of you know that he has been battling seizures for well over a year. We put him on medication and it didn’t help. He gained a bunch of weight and his energy was awful. So I decided a couple months back to take him off the meds. He lost 19 lbs and acted a lot more like Max, but the seizures continued and continued to get worse over the next two months. He had a 36 hour stretch starting on Tuesday that I am not even going to talk about here. We took him in Thursday and we made the toughest decision we’ve had to make in our adult lives. We had a great vet working with us and I do mean she was great. The kids took the news like champs and have moved on very well. Jaime took it pretty hard and I won’t kid anybody…..Max was my boy. Here is the last picture I took of him a few weeks back.



We ended the week with a great family trip to San Antonio and adopted one of Madison’s friends for the day too. We rode horses, picked out pumpkins, did hayrides and we petted pigs, chickens, llamas, and goats…..sounds like fun doesn’t it?

Not the best pic of Madison….lol. Her eyes are really light sensitive. A great time was certainly had by all and we even made a trip to Bass Pro.


I am really looking forward to getting back out on the water this week. Today is the windiest day we have had in several weeks, but the rest of the week looks great. See ya on the water!
