Hack attack

Despite being a fish-crazy state and formerly known as the “Sportsman’s Paradise”, Louisiana hasn’t produced a lot of professional bass fishermen that reach the top of the game. One that has is pro angler Greg “Hack” Hackney of Gonzales, who for a few years, lived in our backyard over in Oak Ridge in Morehouse Parish. … Continue reading

Thanks, Dad

Doin’ Duck Day the Right way!

In case you missed it, Duck Dynasty began Season Six Wednesday night. And in case you missed it, the show had a special guest,  Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Yes, I watched it. Haven’t missed an episode. I do love the show.  Some folks do more than just love it. Every day, not just Wednesday, is … Continue reading

But it’s a good thing. A full lake not only looks better, but it’s good for the fishing, especially upstream … Continue reading

Phil Robertson cuts through the politics and gets to the point… You can watch the video on this site and see all his remarks. 2 Timothy 3:1-9 “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient … Continue reading

Fishing “pressure”

Believe it or not, this kind of bad weather is sometimes good for fishing. When the weather warms up, fishing can get a bit tough. But when we have the threat of thunderstorms and even rain like we have and will have for a few days, one of the major components in fish biting turns … Continue reading

A really big splash

Congratulations to a couple of local fishermen who recently made a big SPLASH on Toledo Bend!
