A right walk

Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

D’Arbonne’s got gas!

Good news for boaters and fishermen on Lake D’Arbonne at Farmerville: the lake now has gas on the Big Lake, too. Kendal Terrall has added a gas pump on the lake deck at the new D’Arbonne Pointe. They are selling NON ETHANOL GAS right on the water.  It sure makes it easier than having to … Continue reading

300,000 Florida bass!

There are some really good bass fishing holes on D’Arbonne. Some of them just got better. But it may take a while. And there are some new ones out there, too, if some of the 300,000 largemouth bass fingerlings decide to stay close to where they were released into the lake this spring. The last … Continue reading

Just one of those days

Some days are just not made for fishing. Monday was one of them. In fact, this whole holiday weekend was a challenge. Some folks caught some fish — white perch, bass and catfish. But it was hard work. Monday actually started off as a pretty nice day, but storms skirted across different areas of the … Continue reading

Prayers needed

Thursday night, a Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries agent was shot and seriously wounded while on routine patrol. I’d like to ask our readers to take a minute to pray for him, his family, co-workers and friends. And also, pray for the other agents and law enforcement personnel who put their lives on the … Continue reading

They’re back…

Apparently, the recent invasion of an alien subspecies to the neighborhoods and forests of our area have even disrupted the fishing. I went the other day on a calm afternoon during the major biting period with the barometric pressure was falling – an ideal day. But I didn’t hardly get a bite. It must have … Continue reading

Louisiana Safe Boating Week

Last week, I shared some disturbing news about recent boating fatalities in our state earlier this month. Ironically, this week is Louisiana Safe Boating week, something that if everyone paid attention to all year long, some of these accidents could be prevented. Here’s the news from the LDWF: The state of Louisiana has issued a … Continue reading

Tainter gate opened Monday night

Water is always a topic around Lake D’Arbonne, but never a more popular topic than when fishermen and lake residents see it rising higher and higher along the bank, over some roads and even over some piers. Such is the case this week, and as a result, the DOTD opened the new tainter gate structure … Continue reading

McBass McWinner!

The big bass on the Ouachita River are like a lot of fish everywhere this year — they aren’t always doing what they are supposed to do. Those big six and seven pounders were no where to be found on the high and muddy Ouachita this weekend in the 2015 Ronald McDonald House Big Bass … Continue reading
