Doin’ Duck Day the Right way!

Are the bass biting? Yes

Is it too late to catch a bunch of big bass on Lake D’Arbonne? No. Just ask these guys. Larry Voorhies caught a 7.29 largemouth to win the big bass for the Toledo Tackle team tournament this past weekend on D’Arbonne and it took 25+ pounds to win the team part of the event. Here … Continue reading

Cricket crazies

I bought a box of crickets the other afternoon to go bream fishing, but when I got home the wind had picked up and so I left the cricket box in my garage. I also bought four new styrofoam corks and six new bream hooks. I just left them in the bottom of the cricket … Continue reading
