Default Fishing legend Jimmy Houston needs our prayers

Jimmy's wife Chris, who is an angler legend all her own, had a massive stroke Monday and is in an induced coma at a hospital in OKC. Please keep Chris, Jimmy and the entire Houston family in your prayers. It sounds like a miracle is needed.

I've always enjoyed watching their YouTube videos. They are good Christian people that enjoy the outdoors. Life is fragile and this is a reminder how our lives can change in an instant.

Here's Jimmy's most recent video. The man is really hurting. May God grant him peace and heal Chris' body.

I met him once on a boat ramp. He had a circle of our club members laughing our butts off for a good while.
Prayers up for them.

Jimmy is a great friend of Texas Hunter, so I have gotten to know him at some of the shows. It broke my heart watching his video last night.

Prayers for his family.

Growing up as a little country kid in Oklahoma in 80s I could not wait for his show to come on every weekend. Saw him at the boat and RV show in Tulsa in mid 80s and got my first autograph from him when I was probably 10yrs old. Im 45 now and was flipping channels the other day and saw his show on, theyre still using the same song and I knew every word. I hate that for him. That video was tough to watch.

That video is ROUGH! Prayers up for him and his family. I also met him once at the Classic in Shreveport. He made me and my buddy hangout with him for a couple minutes while he waited on someone to tell him where he was going next. Super genuine good dude!

Like I mentioned, Chris Houston is quite the angler legend herself.

In 2005 she was inducted as the first woman to be voted into the Bass Fishing Hall Of Fame.

In the late 70's, she dominated the "Bass'n Gal" circuit" for many years, winning the "Bass'n Gal" "angler of the year" title seven times. she placed in the money 19 straight times, over a period of five years, and fished every regular season "Bass'n Gal" tournament for 20 years, as well as qualifying for every classic, which she won three times.
In 1987, she was named to the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame.

My dad and Jimmy used to fish the professional bass tournaments together when I was a baby and toddler. My dad was always full of bull so I never knew what to believe so as he told me stories of Jimmy baby sitting me, I thought he made if up. I always watched his shows every weekend. When I was 17 we were hosting a fishing a show and Jimmy was invited to be the MC. He walked to me and said “ Boy where’s your dad”. Starstruck I just looked at him funny and could not get a word out so he said” I know you. I changed your diapers”. I laughed so hard. The man on tv was just as funny and genuine in person.

Prayers sent and will continue to do so.

Salt of the earth people for sure. You could tell in an instant he truly loved his wife and thought the world of her from watching them together. This really hurts my heart and makes me feel old!
