Lake life

A house at the lake

I saw this about life on the lake and just couldn’t help but pass it along.

Plus, it’s been a busy Mother’s Day weekend and the wind’s been blowing too hard to fish.

Some of my friends (according to George) would be blessed by a shorter “blog” every once in a while. So, enjoy:



One thought on “A house at the lake

  1. I think you should do any article about Lake D’Arbonne crappie size restriction bettering the community along with the lake itself. No reason anyone should get a flat tire after waiting all week to go fishing, drive down to launch and hit 10 potholes only to be left fixing that instead of fishing. Management has always brought money to the table. I encourage you to research lake Grenada and what the big 4 in MS have accomplished. Without management there those towns would not be in existence still. No reason why Darbonne and Poverty Point can’t do the same. The problem is our town settles for less, mainly because they all think they know how to fish, but don’t. For example, you do not see anyone longlining here. Myself and one other person do it in the whole entire state. It’s the most productive way to catch fish there is. Yeah I pole fish and mostly spider rig. But certain times a year longlining is unreal. We caught 324 in four trips on lake darbonne. Biggest fish being 1.58lbs though. That is a problem. Longlining is a big fish technique, ask any pro. Our bait shops don’t sell what they need to. For example you won’t find a big minnow anywhere in the state. I order mine from Anderson’s Arkansas and do well on them in our lakes, by LA standards. Our fish are nowhere close to MS standards, and won’t ever be but we can do better to attract big money tournament fisherman here. Yeah they’re coming next year, but they won’t be back. We’re podunk. Once they hit a few potholes and have terribly long commutes to and from the lakes, they’ll stay in the midwest and Eastern parts of our country, where they know how to host events and raise funds. LA needs to wake up and let fishing build stable funfilled communities around our lakes.
