Where’d he go?

Apparently, taking photos of Outlaw class (no restrictions on fuel types, etc.) racing boats is a bit different from taking regular fishing and hunting pictures. If you need a visual aid, check out the photo above. It was my first attempt at catching a photo of a speeding race boat at the two-day Deep South … Continue reading

Crappie.com’ers coming!

They go by names like Docwaldo, Fishervet, TreeFrog, Shadow, BilliBob, Prefers Shiners, PawPaw Gene, Freebird, Southern Chuter. Even Slab! I’m not sure how many of them there are. But they share one thing for sure- they love crappie fishing and having a good time. Some fish in big fiberglass rigs and some fish in small … Continue reading

ULM’s Preuett Classic Bound!

It’s finally over, this nine day marathon that BASS calls the Bassmaster College Series Classic. The national team champion has been crowned and now the top individual college angler in the country has emerged. And it’s University of Louisiana-Monroe fisherman Brett Preuett!

Classic one win away for Preuett

Anybody who knows Brett Preuett of the University of Louisiana-Monroe knows he loves fishing, but he proved just how “hooked” he is Monday as he fished his way to the finals of the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series. For starters, Preuett and Bethel University’s Zach Parker fished their way to the final matchup of the tournament … Continue reading

ULM’s Preuett advances

And now there are four, including ULM’s Brett Preuett. The Top 4 teams from the Carhartt Bassmaster College Series National Championship set out on Lake Chatuge Sunday in a head-to-head bracket-style competition, which pitted anglers one-on-one. This is one of the most grueling fishing competitions ever. First 166 college fishermen practiced three days, then endured … Continue reading

There are a group of young men in college fishing for a chance of a lifetime to fish in the BASSMasters Classic over the next few days, including two from ULM. They are amateurs fighting to get a chance to compete against the pros for big bucks. I hope they are receiving a lot of … Continue reading

BASS College championship is on!

There’s more to fishing than fishing. Consider this touching story from today’s first round of the college national championship today:  Dave Gullette would be standing in the front row cheering, emailing photos to all his coworkers and otherwise beaming with pride right now to see his son, Michael, and Michael’s teammate, Nathan Martin, in the … Continue reading

Take me to the river…

It was back in 1998 when the scales of silliness were filled by a crazy talking fish — Billy Bass. Remember? Okay, It’s the middle of summer and things are slow on the lake, so it’s time to remember this icon of specialty toys for big boys. Memories of Billy Bass were brought back to … Continue reading

Weather and fishing are hot!

I’m not big on hot weather fishing, but hey, that’s my problem. That doesn’t mean there haven’t been some pretty good fishing reports the past week or so. For starters, on Lake D’Arbonne, the bream and catfish have been biting on the flats and around the banks. I’ve heard of a couple of folks bringing … Continue reading

Bussey Brake: Old being made new

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
