Read stories, look at photos and
watch videos about Wayman Tisdale.
This weekend the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation will pay tribute to the life of former basketball great and smooth jazz artist Wayman Tisdale.
Tisdale, who died May 15 of cancer, was featured on a 2006 episode of the Department's "Outdoor Oklahoma" TV show fishing for striped bass on Lake Texoma.
According to Department of Wildlife Conservation Director Greg Duffy, who was Tisdale's fishing partner on the show, Tisdale had plenty of reasons for his famous grin during the trip.
"I've fished for Texoma stripers dozens of times, but the day we filmed the show with Wayman and his nephew was one of those special days when you literally can't catch 'em fast enough," said Duffy.
The show will air on OETA at 8 a.m. Sunday and again at 6 p.m. on May 30. It can also be seen on KSBI channel 52 at 5:30 a.m. May 30.
