Smile. You’re on Krappie King camera!

IMG_1694Saturday’s premier of the first of three Krappie King TV shows featuring Lake D’Arbonne was great to watch. Host Karl Kalonka and guests Jay Stone and John Godwin did a great job and it really promoted catching the big slabs on D’Arbonne. As Stone told me yesterday, “Lake D’Arbonne was kind to us that day.”

The show also featured quick shots of lots of businesses and landmarks around the parish. I got several calls from friends in other areas that saw it and said, “Hey, there was a TV show on about D’Arbonne!”  One of the unique things that Jay shared is the use of 1/4 ounce jig heads and large shiners for catching large crappie. The proof was in the pudding (or should I say filets).

Jay’s “Japanese Style Peppered Fried Crappie” also looked good. I’ve never had them fried with Panko bread crumbs before, but I will sure give it a try.

I’m sharing a few quick shots from the first show in this post. If you missed the show, check your Sportsman Channel TV Guide and catch the reruns. It runs several times on different cable and satellite systems. Here’s the best info I can put together: The show is on (CST) the Sportsman Channel- Saturdays @ 7:30am Monday @ 9:30am and Tues @ 1:30 am est.; On World Fishing Network, Thurs @ 8:30pm; Fri @ 11:30 & 12:30; Sat @ Noon & 9 p.m.

The D’Arbonne shows are sponsored by the Union Parish Tourist Commission along with support by the Union Parish Police Jury, the Town of Farmerville, the Lincoln Parish Tourist Commission and the Union Parish Chamber of Commerce. They were filmed last spring. Thanks to everyone who helped get them here and hosted them for various fishing trips, tours and importantly, Louisiana cooking sessions! Hopefully they can come back in the future. It looks like money well spent!
