This coming Saturday morning, Jan. 10, at 7:30 a.m., the first of several crappie fishing shows featuring D’Arbonne and our area filmed by Krappie King and the Sportsman Channel will … Continue reading

And the kitchen sink….

I had been looking forward to fishing with Jay Stone for quite some time. I’ve known he was a really good crappie fishermen and his success on Lake D’Arbonne with fellow Duck Commander celebrities John Godwin and Justin Martin is well documented. I got to spend some time fishing with Jay recently and while fishing … Continue reading

Crappie.com fishing report

One thing that you can always count on from the crappie.com guys is a good fishing report. Following this weekend’s annual gathering on Lake D’Arbonne, I got the same encouraging report I’ve been getting from local fishermen. “There are an enormous number of little crappie being caught out in the deep water,” said DocWaldo. “I’ve … Continue reading

A limit of crappie fun

I have a feeling that if the crappie.com folks came to the lake and found it dry, they would still have a good time. In fact, no matter how many fish they catch, they always limit out on fun. That’s just who they are. But these guys are great fishermen and didn’t find Lake D’Arbonne … Continue reading

It’s crappie.com time on D’Arbonne

Want to pass a good time fishin’, eatin’ and crappie fishing? You might want to give DocWaldo a shout the next couple of days and meet up with the Crappie.com followers at their annual Fall gathering at the fabulous Lake D’Arbonne State Park this weekend, October 24, 25 & 26. And as you’d expect, they’ll … Continue reading

Where’s DocWaldo? D’Arbonne, of course!

If you saw DocWaldo fishing on Lake D’Arbonne, most of you would never know who he was. That’s because DocWaldo is from Bossier City and nobody knows him by that name except his crappie.com internet buddies. His real name is Mark. But DocWaldo is a big fan of Lake D’Arbonne and a key component in … Continue reading

Sportsman’s Expo Springs forward to 2015

If you haven’t heard anything about this month’s fifth annual Lake Country Sportsman’s Expo in Farmerville, there’s a good reason. That’s because it’s NOT this month, as in the past four years. The Sportsman’s Expo has been moved to February, at a date yet to be determined, to coincide with the end of hunting season … Continue reading

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

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. All my memories here are not favorable. I used to hate to “pick” catalpa worms. But I loved to … Continue reading

Gum balls, crappie and three lakes…

This is the second of a two-part series: Gum ball machines and crappie fishing tournaments. How in the world could those two be connected? Today, as we look further at the Crappie Masters organization that will be bringing the first big-time professional crappie tournament to Lake D’Arbonne next spring, the answer unravels. Missouri resident Mike … Continue reading
