Barham did an outstanding job

For months now, one-sided news reports about allegations from a leaked “preliminary audit” of some Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries improper BP oil spill fund spending have been circulating. The reports caught a lot of attention. But a closer look shows there is an underlying theme in this that seems to be aimed at … Continue reading

Something to think about

Okay, that’s not our regular Sunday Scripture verse, so what’s it doing here? After I read it, it made me think that we often look at another’s folly, judge and laugh, yet in that, we may be facing our own folly, or foolishness. This Presidential political race is so divisive. Mainly because the candidates policies … Continue reading

Most excellent adventure!

The drawdown every four years on D’Arbonne opens a world of wonder. We scour the bottom finding old chairs and tables, rod and reel combos, baits, almost anything after this spring’s flood. We ride around in the boat, looking at where creek channels come into the river, where old log piles still hide 100 year … Continue reading

The thump, deer corn and more…

The thump was slow for the Crappie Fishermen United of Louisiana tourney trail Saturday on the Ouachita River out of Sterlington, but  there were some good fish brought to the scales and cooler weather made it a special day. When the final fish hit the scales, Jason Thomas and Ken Myers had landed a limit … Continue reading

He’s not only a good fisherman, but a wise man as well:  Our Bible Verse for today: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a … Continue reading

Getting ready

Wife:  Why are you still sitting on the back porch?     Me:  Shhhh! Be still. Wife:  What?  You haven’t moved in four hours. You look like you are half asleep. And why are you wearing that silly face paint?     Me:  Can’t you see?  I’m practicing for opening day of deer season!

Bubba meets bass

“As fishermen, we were sick and tired of our fillet knives going dull, rusting, pitting, slipping out of our hand and not being able to hold up in a harsh saltwater environment. We wanted a knife that could handle a rigorous life at sea. After searching for this perfect knife, we found that one did … Continue reading

By George

For two years, I’ve been sharing stories with you about my fishing buddy George, who always seems to get front-ended or stung by yellow jackets or is two hours late when we go fishing. He’s in the witness protection program, you know, so I have to be careful about what I write and the photos … Continue reading
