It’s bream bustin’ time around the area

It was August; it was hot. The lake didn’t seem the right place to be in the middle of the day with temperatures flirting with triple digits. My Lazy Boy under air conditioning seemed to be a better choice but I was sitting on Grand Bayou Reservoir with one of the most serious fishermen with whom I ever had the privilege of sharing a boat.

Eddie Halbrook had dangled an opportunity before me and I took to it like our dog, Rufus, takes after his Snack Bone.

“They’re biting right now and I have something to show you. Have you ever gone for a fishing ‘trifecta’? I’m talking bass, crappie and bream on the same trip,” Halbrook said. I admitted I hadn’t but was anxious to give it a try.

. Lady Tigers – Class 1A State Runner-up

The LaSalle Lady Tigers for the third year in a row played softball on the very last day of High School Softball season. The Lady Tigers were looking to bring home the championship, but they would be denied in the championship game by a very talented Oak Grove team.

This team has nothing to hang their heads about, because they have proven to be a top tier program in our state when it comes to softball. Our Seniors will be missed, but next season starts today as the Lady Tigers will begin training for opening day 2020.

The Seniors, AnnaBeth Pitman, Anna Clark, Sidni Laird, and Ashley Williams have represented this program with class and dignity for the last four years, not to mention 4 straight trips to Sulphur to play for the championship.
