I loved J. B! He was great to work with during our years together in the line dept. at GSU. He once called a duck in while up a highline pole. Nobody ever out fished J B on Dam B long before Rayburn or Toledo Bend ever came in. His famous bait was the Mudpuppy.. He took me hog hunting in Vidor, to kill some hogs for Slim McReynolds, a great line foremen. I had a bow but never got a shot for JB chasing the hogs with his 22 rifle. As it turned out he killed a couple of hogs that belonged to a farmer. Lucky we didn't get caught. The best of times!!!
