Lake life

Hey, it’s River Possum!

You never know who you’ll run into when you least expect it. Like recently when I was in Orlando at the 2019 ICAST show, walking around in my lakedarbonnelife.com shirt.

“Well, there can’t be but one Lake D’Arbonne, I know that,” the voice behind me said. “Where are you from?”, the man all dressed up in fish patch clothing asked.

Then I recognized him from his photos, it was River Possum.

Okay, his name is really Harvey Horne and he’s a pro bass fisherman now, living in Bella Vista, Arkansas. But since he’s from Union Parish originally, his nickname follows him wherever he goes. He’s still a Louisiana boy at heart.

We had a good visit and even had to take a selfie to show Windjammer (a.k.a. Peyton McKinnie) that we had finally met.

Harvey is just getting started on the BASS tour and has won $84,392 to date in 18 pro tournaments. He’s already captured a championship on the BASS Elite trail ( the Bass Pro Shops Central Open #2 on the Arkansas River), something not a lot of folks can say!

He is sponsored by Humminbird, Minn Kota, Yamaha, Costa, Greenfish Tackle, Big Bite Baits, PROcise Outdoors, AFTCO, Xpress Boats, Nightengale Cabinets Inc., Heavy Sack Custom Rods, Davis Custom Lures, Fishin’ Fools Custom Lures, Ubix, Hook Line & Sinker Outdoors, Talon, Epcon Partners, AMP Electric, Tiger Bend Outdoors, RBT Farms, Wicked Weights Quality Tungsten and Justin Madick – Shelter Insurance.

Here’s a great read about Harvey and who he is. I’m sure, like me, after you read it you will follow his career closely and become a fan:
