Confession time. I've been remiss, gotten a little lazy really, in not spending more hands-on time on the north Louisiana waterways located in my area of coverage. Oh, I'll sneak out to a pond occasionally or maybe even work up a trip to Claiborne, Caney or D'Arbonne but I haven't given the outstanding fishing spots in the northern half of the state the hands-on test they deserve.
Thankfully, I had the privilege of accompanying a group of writers on a visit last week to some of the more popular fishing hot-spots around the northern part of the state. The Explore Louisiana North group did all the work to put together an exciting fishing "fam" last week that gave me a new appreciation of what all our blessed part of the country has to offer those of us who love to fish.
