Earl Golding passed away at 81

1 post in this topic

I know hes in Tx, but hes was known all over the Midwest for his writings about fishing and hunting as well in the fishing tourneys..And from his work in tx many other fishand hunting columns adapted his ways too.

WACO — Earl Golding, whose hunting and fishing columns for the Waco Tribune-Herald inspired the Texas State Bass Tournament, has died. He was 81.

His death on Sunday was confirmed Tuesday by a funeral home.

Golding began his career at the Tribune-Herald as a sports reporter in 1949. A year later he began covering the outdoors beat, including Texas' growing hunting and fishing scenes, the newspaper said.

In 1955, Golding came up with the idea for a newspaper-sponsored fishing tournament to determine the best bass fisherman in the state. The event became the Texas State Bass Tournament, and Golding was inducted into the tournament's hall of fame in 1998.

In the early 1970s, his hunting and fishing columns began running seven days a week in the Tribune-Herald, an arrangement that lasted for nearly 20 years. He retired in 1999 after 50 years at the newspaper, although he continued on a part-time basis writing a Sunday column for several more years.

Friends and former colleagues praised Golding as engaging and humorous.

"Everyone he met was a friend," former Tribune-Herald sports reporter Hollis Biddle said. "If you knew him five minutes, it was like you both grew up together."

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
