Fishing warning !!!

With the warmer weather and fish moving into the spawn for the spring, I’ve noticed something that you need to be aware of. FISHING POX!  It is very contagious to adult males. A growing number of adult females also seem to be contracting the pox. The symptoms include continual complaints as to the need for … Continue reading

Truth at the movies

I haven’t seen it yet, but the great reviews for “God’s Not Dead” are rolling in and because of that, somewhat skeptical American Theater owners are having to schedule more showings at more theaters around the country. Hmmmm…. I wonder what that means? Why talk movies on this site? Because it is important when this … Continue reading

Wind-aided fishing report

I got up early Thursday morning (Yes, George, before 9 a.m.) to try and get in a last minute fishing trip before the approaching storms hit. You know, fish always bite better before an approaching storm. I didn’t have to turn on any lights to see if the wind had kicked up yet. I could … Continue reading

Elshout and Price: Dynamic Bass Duo

When you are my age, you learn to appreciate experience. That’s just one reason I know that Martin Elshout and Mark Price of Ruston are good fishermen. Combined, they’ve got 100+ years of bass fishing experience. If that isn’t enough, all you have to do is read bass tournament reports from around the area to … Continue reading

Help clean up behind the dumpies

Since this is a family oriented web site, I can’t put into words what I really think about the poor, unfortunate, dump (oops, I meant dumb) “people” who litter. It’s kind of like they missed the lesson on growing up. I’ll just leave it at that. Fortunately, there are good people who try and clean … Continue reading

It’s Friday night from 6-8 p.m. at the Union Parish Library in Farmerville with on-lake demos on Saturday from 11a.m.-1 p.m at Lester’s on the Lake. Want … Continue reading

Almost kilt by the bird flew

You’ll have to forgive the spelling in today’s headline, but I was a little shook up when I wrote it. You see, I was almost done in by the bird flew a couple of nights ago while running a couple of yo-yo’s on my boat dock a couple minutes after 11 p.m. The bird flew … Continue reading

Weights and measures

Uh, oh. I know a lot of fishermen that are in trouble. Big trouble. Me included. There are, no doubt, a lot of awesome verses in the book of Proverbs. Proverbs 20 is a collection of thirty assorted wisdom sayings. While the chapter does not seem to have an overarching theme, the topics of false … Continue reading

Fish here, fish there

It’s the time of year when fishing is great one day and then not so great the next. They are here today, gone tomorrow. The weather, mostly high wind, skewed fishing results a bit this week. The fish had been biting, then cold mornings and the wind slowed them down. Yesterday things were a bit … Continue reading

Car Show Saturday

Life on Lake D’Arbonne and in Union Parish is about a lot more than fishing. That will become evident if you head out to the Lake D’Arbonne State Park Saturday, or even if you ride through town about 6 p.m. Friday night. Many of the vehicles will make a ride into town then, and it’s … Continue reading
