Cole’s First Squirrel

Coles first squirrel Coles First Squirrel While most local hunters would agree that the Louisiana May Squirrel Season is not the best time to be in the woods, you would probably have a hard time convincing this young man!

Seven year old Cole O’Connor son of Jessie & Ed O’Connor got his first squirrel this Saturday, May 5th. while hunting with his dad in the woods of Bayou Chicot.

According to Ed while creeping up on a few squirrels and getting set to take a shot Cole quickly realized that this was not a Red Rider BB gun he was handling.  His dad had outfitted him with a .410 shotgun which he had shot before but never had to hold steady for that length of time under these nerve-racking conditions.  Finally overcoming his nerves and the weight of the gun he squeezed of a shot dropping his trophy to the ground. “He was happy but not as happy as me” said Ed.  “We gave chase to a few more but he was “Finished with Dat” and ready to go home and show off his trophy”.  He later claimed that day to be the best day of his life.

Congratulations to you Cole & Kudos to your parents for teaching you to hunt and enjoy the great outdoors.

Taking kids outdoors is what it’s all about.

More Catch & Release Action in Louisiana

Bass 8.13 270x300 More Catch & Release Action in LouisianaSpawning bass are creating mega action for local anglers here on Louisiana waters.  With temperatures hitting the 80 degree mark bass are moving to the shallows giving anglers the upper hand on presenting just the right lure in front of their noses or in this case their tail; yep hooked em’ in the tail, all 8.1 pounds.

While fishing a tournament this past Saturday in Grand Bayou Josh Richard hooked a nice heavy bass and fought it until it broke off.  Josh and his fishing buddy caught other fish that day but nothing could have help them place more than “the one that got away”.

The next day (tournament over) Josh tells his buddy he’s going back after the big one.  While hitting the exact same spot a couple of times during the day with a chrome & blue rattle trap Josh finally hook on to a nice bass.  After a few minutes of fighting he realizes he had hook the fish in the tail but managed to net it anyway.  Now while the fish had some battle scares Josh was unable to confirm if it was the same fish or not but one thing is for sure, she’s back in the water to finish off her spawning and will be ready for another round of Fish against Angler someday.  Nice job Josh and hats off to you for practicing Catch & Release on spawning bass.

Be Safe, Have Fun and Remember to Take a Kid Outdoors
