My biggest fish ever

I was working down on the boat dock the other afternoon. Yes, working. Washing up. Spraying to reduce the summer supply of lake bugs. Straightening out fishing gear. That kind of work. Serious stuff. The wind was blowing about 30 miles an hour from the west, which makes some picturesque whitecaps down our way on … Continue reading

It’s a log…perch?

One day, my fishing buddy George reared back and set the hook on his bass rod. It bent  double. After reeling (with a loose drag, I might add) for a few minutes, whipping his rod from right to left and then just finally holding it still, he said sheepishly, “Oh, man, he hung me up.” … Continue reading

Little Yeller Bass

I was bream fishing around a couple of trees out from the shoreline the other day when my bait had barely hit the water when the cork disappeared. I set into what felt like a pretty good little bream, but it was not. It was a small, yeller (yellow for you folks with spell checker) … Continue reading

Bombs bursting in air

It’s not even the Fourth of July yet on Lake D’Arbonne as I write this Sunday night, but already there has been a super fireworks show over the water, a boat parade and a day of celebrating and honoring our Vets at Lache Pas La Patate’s, six tons of barbeque grilled and eaten and I’d … Continue reading
