She was mad!

Man, when that front blew through Wednesday, it was followed with some straight line winds right out of the south that made the Lady D’Arbonne as mad as a whitecap. I’ll let the pictures tell the story and save my thousand words for another day…

Hunter pink?

Isn’t it refreshing to know that in the midst of the widely articulated falling financial sky in The Bayou State, previously known as the Sportsman’s Paradise (sorry, Prince fans…), our legislature took time to tackle a high level problem plaguing our deer woods. Of course, I’m talking  Pink  vs.  Orange. Our Louisiana Legislature Monday fully … Continue reading

Bass still on the bite

We’ve gotten some good reports of success from bass fishermen this past week, despite  not-so-good water conditions on area lakes. Several big fish and good stringers have been caught out of D’Arbonne and a couple of tournaments this past weekend on other lakes show they’ve been hitting there, too. Kel’s Cove on Lake Claiborne was … Continue reading

Seek first…

 Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Hungry fish

Something to ponder over the weekend: Everybody knows that when the cows are feeding, the fish are biting. You did know that, didn’t you? Oh well, here’s one sure sign the fish are biting and that the cows should not get to close to the water!

Now that’s a bream bucket

It’s getting time to catch some bream and I just have to share these two things to get you in the right frame of mind: Now I’ve seen all kinds of bream buckets, cages, tubes, etc. But Dr. Ray “Cold Front” Jones indubitably has the ultimate cricket bucket. It was born of necessity a few … Continue reading

Time is like a river…

Ephesians 5: 15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.…

Quadruple crappie bogey

I don’t play golf. I used to. I could hit the ball a long way. I just never knew which direction it would go. I don’t follow golf and I don’t watch golf. I know more about the Crappie Masters than the Augusta Masters. But it is hard to not be aware of defending Masters’ … Continue reading
