8.5 million people. That’s the average number of fans who watch Duck Dynasty every Wednesday night. Hey, Jack.

There’s treasure behind that green worm spit…

Way back when, my dad and one of his fishing partners, Tom Guthrie, didn’t share much in common. What they did share was the love of fishing, dad’s 12-foot aluminum boat and Mr. Tom’s catalpa tree.

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

ULM duo finishes third; more fishing ahead!

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
