Bag of Donuts

If a space alien were to land in New Orleans, they just might feel right at home with the out-of-this-world food, fun and, most of all, the music. The motto of New Orleans band Bag of Donuts is party like it’s Mardi Gras all year long, and when the colorful quartet makes their way to Champagne & Ribs on April 16, they plan to bring a little bit of the Big Easy with them.

Big trout like this one are still being caught on Lake Calcasieu with mullet imi

The fantastic trophy trout fishing that was being kept very quiet on Sabine Lake came to a sudden halt about a week ago when we got a tidal wave of rain and runoff. All that rain water coming down the Sabine River put the skids to a “hot” trout bite, and definitely didn’t do white bass fishermen any favors, either.
