Lake life, Louisiana fishing

College anglers hit the Bend

WEATHER ALERT: No, this is a  good  weather alert. It’s going to be a beautiful weekend and expect our lakes and launching ramps to be very busy. Be courteous and be careful out there! I hope the fish are ready to get as active as the fishermen!

College Football’s over. Baseball had its season openers last night.  But southern colleges are about to go head to head in some big stake competition this weekend. The FLW College Southern Conference begins its fishing bass tournament season on Toledo Bend with more than 50 college teams competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the 2014 Southern Conference Invitational.college flw

The weather has been a bit crazy, but fishermen are catching some good bass on the Bend.  Anglers will take off from San Miguel Park located at 381 San Miguel Road in Zwolle, La., at 7:00 a.m. Weigh-in will be held at San Miguel Park starting at 3:00 p.m. TODAY.
