Sometimes, you just want to go fishing, even if things aren’t exactly going according to plan.
Once in a while, however, things work out in the form of a huge bass, a 13-pounder.

Nathaniel Street of Leesville wanted to go fishing the morning of Oct. 14. He lives on Anacoco Lake in Vernon Parish, but the lake is in its 7-year maintenance drawdown and unfishable right now.

Early that morning, Street had to put off fishing to get some new tires for his wife’s car, so he didn’t get to go early. But he was able to finish up, load up his boat and go to nearby Vernon Lake about 5 miles away. He finally started fishing at about 10:30.

Low expectations
Street didn’t have great expectations of catching anything, even though he had caught a few small bass in the past couple of days. And a neighbor had gone earlier and told him to forget it, they just weren’t biting.
