Big Bass for Bullitt coming to D’Arbonne

There’s an important event coming to Lake D’Arbonne on Saturday, Sept. 26. It’s the LDWF Agent Scott Bullitt Benefit Big Bass tournament.  Agent Bullitt was seriously injured when he was shot in the line of duty in May. Not only is he a veteran enforcement agent who protects and serves, he is also an avid … Continue reading

What’s up, Doc?

I don’t normally plan crappie fishing trips five months ahead, but then again, this is no normal crappie fishing trip. I’ve got this one marked on the calendar. Doc Waldo of crappie.com fame has already set the date for the annual crappie.com north Louisiana Fall get together on Lake D’Arbonne for the crappie.com guys and … Continue reading

I think I know these guys…

Hey, George, it won’t crank. No problem. Just shoot some a dat redneck ether up in there and I’ll fire her up:

Glad to be back

I’ve never seen Lake D’Arbonne look bad, but it looked really, really good late this weekend when my wife and I returned home after a 24-day road trip touring up through the mountains, though many of the historic places where this great nation was first planned, fought for and founded, then back down the East … Continue reading

It’s Watermelon Time!

In the northern hemisphere, the first day of Summer is the day of the year when the Sun is farthest north (on June 20th or 21st), also known as the Summer Solstice. But you know it’s summer in Union Parish when you ride down Hwy. 33 and you see the big watermelon red crepe myrtles … Continue reading

I wish you water – Part 3

If you’ve spent much time on the water, you don’t have any argument with the fact that having a “Blue Mind” is a great thing (See past two writeups to catch up if you missed them). It’s even nice to mow the yard on the shores of the lake — I mean if you have … Continue reading

I wish you water, Part 2

“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.” That’s another one of my favorite quotes in Wallace J Nichols book, “Blue Mind” which I’m on part 2 of a three-part series writing about. If you missed part 1 yesterday, I hope you go back and read it … Continue reading

I wish you water, Part 1

When Stephanie Hermann starts passing out gifts, it’s a good bet it’s going to be something to do with a Kayak or a book. Since I don’t kayak, it’s no surprise that the Union Parish Librarian gave me a book recently. I quickly thumbed through it and it had no pictures, so I wondered what … Continue reading

Big Fourth Weekend on the ‘Bone!

The Fourth of July weekend is always a big one on Lake D’Arbonne, but in addition to the annual Chamber of Commerce Fireworks show on the lake and other activities, there’s more on the “new” Folley Beach. Just a quick note — the fireworks can be observed from just about anywhere and of course, they … Continue reading
