Bassin’ with George….or John Brown?

My fishing buddy George and I hit Lake D’Arbonne in search of summertime largemouth bass a couple of days ago. Anybody can catch fish on topwaters at daylight or on a worm right before dark, so we weren’t challenged by that. So we went at 2 p.m. in the middle of August in an East … Continue reading

Today’s outdoor tidbits

Today we’ve got  several things: a word about the weather, a short fishing report and a followup to D’Arbonne’s spot on Duck Dynasty.

The world’s lowest temperature yesterday was … Continue reading

After the drive just north of Bastrop, I stopped first on the south end of Bussey Brake and walked up the levee at the old water pumping station. Wow. The lake is empty, except a few deep holes near the intake and outtake areas, a few spots out in the lake and a couple of … Continue reading

Grand camping – Part 4

Final in a four-part series Now it’s time for the After Party: So where’d everybody go? Today, when there’s a big event, it isn’t necessarily over when it’s over. The cool thing to do is have an “After Party” too. The “after party” after a camping/fishing/family vacation road trip usually involves eating up the leftovers … Continue reading

Grand Camping Vacation – Part 1

First of a four-part series It’s not my fault. It’s Ollie Hopnoodle’s. When my grown kids suggested we take them and our grandchildren camping on the lake this summer, I couldn’t wait. I had an excellent role model to follow. In case you never had the privilege of seeing it, the satire of childhood recollections … Continue reading

Unintended deceit

Okay, this is too funny to not share with you and only Uncle Si and I could team up to do it. Yesterday, I got 251 “clicks” on lakedarbonnelife.com from Brazil. I get a daily report of how many clicks there are on the site and where they come from. I do get viewers from … Continue reading

Mind you, it isn’t like the spring, but fish are still reportedly being caught on area lakes. … Continue reading
