Hello. My name is Kinny Haddox. I caught my first fish when I was four years old and loved it every since. I’ve been an outdoor writer for 38 years including 12 years as the Outdoor Editor of the News Star. I’ve had more than 250 magazine articles published – including BASSMasters, Outdoor Life, Southern Outdoors, Louisiana Game & Fish, Mississippi Game & Fish, Louisiana Conservationist and numerous other publications. Those who know me would never expect me to show up with a blog, but here I am.

I’ve always dreamed of living on the lake. After living most of my life in Bastrop & Monroe (with brief stints in Olive Branch, MS, and Texarkana, TX), I finally am. My wife and I have built our retirement home on the shores of Lake D’Arbonne in Farmerville.

I love to bream fish off the dock. I love to go to the BASSMasters Classic… and everything in between. And I love to tell stories about it all. Some of them are even true!

  2. There used to be a ramp below the dam on the spillway side, but that area has been taken out as part of the new tainter gate project.

  3. Is there a good boat launch on the Downsville side that would put you behind the spillway? Just wondering…..

  4. Charlie, the best place to get a free map is at the Union Parish Tourist Center, 403 Fourth St or P. O. Box 328 Bernice, LA 71222, Toll free Number: 1-888-245-7145. The Lake Commission published a map that is for sale at several local sporting goods dealers.

  6. Hey, Kinney,…..Has your back ever straightened out after riding “shotgun” all day on the “Hook, Line, and Sinker” express ? Just found out about your blog and have enjoyed the read. Where did you end up building ? Get in touch when you have time.
