Big ones “hit” up Corney

The white perch aren’t the only thing “hitting” in the water up Corney Creek. What do you do when a couple of 50 pounders going 60 miles an hour splash into the water near where you are fishing? Just keep on fishing. That’s what about 20 boaters sitting out in the channel near the Bernice … Continue reading

This week’s fishing report

Fishing reports here lately are about like the weather. Pretty good one day. Pretty not the next. This past weekend was a great fishing weekend. There were probably more people on the water Friday through Sunday on D’Arbonne than I’ve seen in quite a well. Then Wednesday, following the cold front and another dip into … Continue reading

Fishing for Hope

I’ve never met Alabama pro bass fisherman Randy Howell. But thanks to a $300,000 sack full of largemouth bass, I know about him now. And it’s all good. Howell won the BASS Masters Classic this past weekend on Lake Guntersville in his home state of Alabama. Other than he caught three sacks full of monster … Continue reading

Yes, it’s them again!

Lake D’Arbonne is under attack from above by my favorite waterway nuisance. Again. Extreme cold weather sent lake Orks further south weeks ago, but they are back. Don’t get me wrong, I like birds. But these aren’t birds. They are bad actors, apparently secretly gathering for a remake of an old Alfred Hitchcock movie. Hello, … Continue reading

Take a number, please

Number 68? Number 68? And you thought taking a number at the Department of Motor Vehicles was tough. Sunday afternoon the beautiful 70-degree sunny weather combined with quite a few hungry white perch to make it seem like anglers had to “take a number” to find a spot to fish along the river channel on … Continue reading

Friday morning at daylight,  55 of the top professional bass tournament fishermen go head to head with each other and the elusive Mr. Bass to see who will be crowned champion of the 2014 BASSMaster Classic. This year’s title match is being held on Lake Guntersville … Continue reading

$5 bass boat

You think Subway’s $5 footlongs are a good deal? How about a $30,000 bass boat for $5? Come this spring, some lucky ticket holder will have just that. I would encourage you to buy a ticket, but I already bought the winning one from Association of Louisiana Bass Clubs regional director Steve Cagle at the … Continue reading

Threat to my spring fishing!

There’s an ominous, real and present danger threatening my spring fishing. It could affect you, too. That’s why I’m letting you know about it so you can plan ahead.  It started with a simple trip down the road and ended up with a face-to-face encounter with the enemy of spring fishing. They sounded harmless at … Continue reading
