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.

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

So God made a cormorant

Forgive me, Paul Harvey (originator of “So God Made a Farmer”….) It was the ninth day, and God looked down on the Paradise he had created and said, “I shouldn’t make everything so perfect.  Man needs some challenges to go along with thorns and sour berries and poison ivy”.

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

Kids fishing day on D’Arbonne

Recently the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries in conjunction with the Lake D’Arbonne State Park held a free fishing day for kids on the fishing piers at the park. A big crowd turned out and quite a few good fish were caught. Thanks to these two groups for putting this on — and to … Continue reading

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. Besides, he’s just getting through with therapy after his brothers, older Larry and even older Larry, have admitted that they have become … Continue reading

David lands Goliath!

At 5:30 a.m. while most of the rest of us were asleep Saturday morning, David Harrell motored into the back of Stowe Creek, cut off his motor on the edge of a grassbed and waited to catch a big bass. It was more than just a fishing trip. He was one of the 200+ contestants … Continue reading
