Your guns have been cleaned, your hunting gear packed away. You have caught up on some much needed rest, watched the Super Bowl, endured Mardi Gras and finished your long honey-do list that accumulated over the fall hunting and fishing seasons.
Now what? Speck fishing is in the tank, and you’re not really a fan of sheepshead, drum and bull reds. Got cabin fever? How about catching green trout fever?
|Worth The Wait
March 01, 2012 at 7:00 am
People will travel long distances to get in line for just about anything when comes to fun, recreation and the many pleasures in life. Orlando, Fla., and hour-long waits for amusement rides at Disney World is one example. A favorite chain restaurant, where the wait to be served could be for an extended period of time, is another.
But an angler who finds it worth traveling to get in line and launch his boat for a shot at a lunker bass just may want to consider opening day and the months to follow at Lacassine National Wildlife Refuge.

Younger Brother Lane handled business during only his second Classic appearance, and Sunday won the biggest prize in tournament bass fishing - the 2012 Bassmaster Classic title.
And Bobby was there to cheer him on, bellowing his brother’s name after being knocked out of contention. He knew Chris still had a good chance.

LSU fishing team members were feeling pretty confident about their chances of defending their Bassmaster College Series title, having located some nice bedding fish on Cross Lake.
And the three two-man Tiger teams did bring a few over-the-slot lunkers to the scales. However, Arkansas team members managed to stick an extra weigh fish, and that was the difference.

But the lead was tenuous, putting Poche a mere 1 ounce ahead of fellow Bassmaster Elite Series pro Greg Vinson.
