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

Thanks, Dad

I originally wrote and published this article in the News-Star on Sunday, June 19, 1988. My parents are both gone on to be with the Lord now, but I hope you enjoy it and are able to still tell your Dad “thanks” on this Father’s Day weekend. ******************* Thanks, Dad. Thanks for taking me fishing … Continue reading

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


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.

ULM, Tech finish1-2-3 in BASS regional

There’s no place like home, and that doesn’t just apply to the Wizard of Oz. The Ouachita River and her backwaters were almost treacherous the past two days, but college fishermen from around the South braved the waters and local fishermen from the University of Louisiana Monroe and Louisiana Tech ended up bringing home the … Continue reading

ULM anglers grab lead

Being in first place can bring good dreams. Thinking about the ones that got away can be a nightmare. That’s the situation that University of Louisiana Monroe anglers Brett Preuett and Jackson Blackett are in after day one of the 2014 Carhartt Bassmaster College Series Central Regional on the Ouachita River. The Warhawk anglers brought … Continue reading

D’Arbonne shows off

Lake D’Arbonne and its crappie population showed off this past week through some of the roughest weather and rising water that we’ve had in a long time. The fish provided good catches in a variety of ways, from jigging deep to jigging shallow; to trolling; to casting mini-spinners. The result? Hours of great fishing footage … Continue reading

Patience, Spring, Eagles

It’s a rare occasion that I turn to the Famers’ Almanac. But I did today. My question: When is Spring going to get here?
