Easter Weekend Fishing Forecast

As we fished around Lake D’Arbonne Thursday, I noticed two very distinct patterns.  First, fishermen are found just about everywhere. Second, fish are being found just about nowhere.  We fished right through the “major biting period” Thursday morning and the only bite I got was me nibbling on a bag of Cheese crackers. But that … Continue reading

Turkey time

I love to do just about anything in the outdoors in Louisiana, but I’ve never been bitten by the turkey bug. I went twice. I killed a gobbler my first time out in the first hour. That was 30 years ago. Yes, I had a great turkey hunter put me in the right spot, call … Continue reading

Big Bass Live Here

Louisiana still produces some surprising catches of big bass each spring.

Yes, Jerry, … Continue reading

Erroneous Vernal Equinox?

While some of my buddies like George are trying to figure out exactly what this headline means, I’ll tell you — it isn’t a typo. I just think that the Vernal Equinox may have made a mistake. The Vernal Equinox is that moment when the sun crosses directly over the Earth’s equator when both day … Continue reading

Another BEAR sighting

A couple of weeks ago, I introduced you to my friend Bear (March 6 blog).  Bear came down to Louisiana to fish and we didn’t do much good because he brought 30 MPH winds with him from Oklahoma.  We tried it again a few days ago and did a bit better. We caught some nice … Continue reading
