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

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

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.

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

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

Yikes!

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. It shows a pretty big tree being turned into matchsticks by a single bolt from the blue…   ***** ANY   QUESTIONS … 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
