Nice to see you!

The last couple of days it was nice to see an old friend.  Looks like he’s staying for a while. There’s nothing better than waking up to a beautiful sunrise on the lake!  Welcome back, Mr. Sun! “The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call … Continue reading

Traffic stoppers

If you still need a waterfowl hunting “fix”, you can always go after geese this month. Louisiana has a special “Conservation Order” season for “light” geese in which many of the regulations are lifted. I’m not going to try to explain them to you but if you want to hunt them, read up on the … Continue reading

Cure for the Common Cold

  Okay, this won’t make you stop sneezing or clear up your red eyes, but this cure for the common “cold” will help make you feel better when it’s yucky cold outside. You know, like recently?

Hint: 14 pound bass

Which one of these is true: 1. It’s too cold and too early to catch lunker largemouth in north Louisiana 2. Big bass only hit jigs and big spinnerbaits early in the year. 3.

Hunter’s Corner

Smile. You’re on Krappie King camera!

Saturday’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.” … Continue reading

I don’t know when the “end” of the world will come, but I do know that one day Jesus will come back. There are many signs already. While the one pictured above is just silly, there are many serious signs. But nobody knows the time that this will come. I do know this, though. This … Continue reading

Ducks, deer, fish and …yes, QUAIL

Zeek zigzagged across the field like a kid running to the tree on Christmas morning. Chris and Erin Turner spread out and raised their shotguns to waist level, waiting for Zeek to come to a stop. He did. And he came to point, and a few seconds later two zesty quail zinged up from a … Continue reading
