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.

Happy Trails

Crappie.com fishing report

One thing that you can always count on from the crappie.com guys is a good fishing report.

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
