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

Happy Trails

Roy Rogers probably never had a kayak (although he did have a Jeep!). B ut if he did have a kayak, he’d have probably named it “Trigger”. Okay, so you don’t remember Roy Rogers? And you don’t know what this has to do with Union Parish? Well, it’s all tied in to “Happy Trails“. Union … Continue reading

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

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”. So God made a Cormorant. “There … 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

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

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
