Captain D’s = Fish

Okay, when you think of Captain D’s, you have to think of fish, right? Well, you probably don’t think of the same fish as this Captain D.

Bad news for the basses

George and I got hooked up to go fishing this week for the first time in what seems like months. I don’t know how we got so busy, but I guess we did.

Eat, sleep, water

Today, Lake D’Arbonne stands at 80.6 feet, about six tenths of a foot above pool stage. Projections are for it to stay above pool for the rest of the month. That’s pretty unusual for June.

Yikes!

Want a very vivid illustration of why you don’t stand underneath a tree during a lightning storm? This video is from the US Parks Service of a tree beside a park in New York. It shows a pretty big tree being turned into matchsticks by a single bolt from the blue…   ***** ANY   QUESTIONS … Continue reading
