A few little fishes

There are lots of people fishing. There are a few people catching a few. But it’s still really slow. In fact, this afternoon I found myself out in the channel about an hour before dark all alone. Not another boat in sight.  I did manage to pull out several white perch in the last hour … Continue reading

Strange object sighted

A strange, oddly glowing object was spotted in the Eastern sky for most of the morning yesterday over Lake D’Arbonne. Through the fog, it gave off a dim light in the form of a perfect circle. At times it was bright, as if about to shine though, even enough to make a slight reflection on … Continue reading

Next Saturday

Here’s a quick fishing report: There are fish being caught everywhere. In the channel, in the flats, in the shallows. Before you call in sick, though, here are the details. There were 28 fish caught in the channel, 12 on the flats and 8 in the shallows.  Okay, it was a little better than that … Continue reading

Exactly !

A few weeks ago, I walked out on the back deck overlooking the lake with a friend.

Answers were — “looking at the water, the sunset, the boat dock, … Continue reading

Two Men Fishing

The Union Parish  Museum of History and Art opened a very unique display on March 3 that will run for the next six weeks. The exhibit is a collection of paintings,  “Clementine Hunter and Her Presence in the 21st Century”. It didn’t take me long to find one I liked. It was called “Two Men … Continue reading

“Sight” fishing – unbelievable!

Technology is crazy. And it enabled shooting and sharing this video this past weekend. It’s posted on several fishing sites, including crappie.com. It shows an angler with a small underwater camera, just playing around and looking for fish, and… well, just click on the video and watch for yourself. Welcome to sight (site?)  fishing, 2015 … Continue reading

Weather spawning fishy questions…

Most would agree that last year was the best white perch fishing year ever on Lake D’Arbonne. And I doubt few would argue that so far, this year has been one of the worst.  Neither have anything to do with the other, though. I hate the saying with a passion, but hey, “it is what … Continue reading
