Re: Need a buddy in Arkansas

Of course you can dive from a kayak, or from shore for that matter. Just have a flag and realize that most will not respect it. Come up with caution.

Once a boat was throwing their anchor at...

Re: First Trip to Beaver Lake Arkansas

Nice , as usual Les, I just got back from a week at BS. Always a learning adventure with a yo-yo lake like that. After a couple days I had it (them) figured out. Vis was harsh to say the least,...

Made our annual pilgrimage to bull shoals for opening week. Possibly our worst trip ever. Vis was strange, weather was a bit rough on the "boat nazi" and fish were very uncooperative. The lake was...

Re: bull shoals bankside

Just carefully read the regs but be sure to read the "special reg section". B S is one of them special size/quantities apply and supersede the generic statewide regs

Re: bull shoals bankside

You have one bottom type to chose from. Rocks. At current level you will be in a lot of brush/grass. Avoid the green briars!!! Best way to figure the regs is you can shoot anything not prohibited....

Re: Biggest Cat

I'd be more comfortable any day holding a slimy cat than a baby! For you guys that chase big cats where precisely do you shoot for and if you can't get that shot do you abstain or take what you can...

Re: Freshwater Technique

It's all about thermocline not any given # of ft below the surface. In the actual thermocline sucks for vis so pick your poison just above or just below... Wally will almost always come out of the...

Re: Freshwater Technique

Speed of movement is more of an issue than amount of movement. I do scuba and holding your breath is the most critical part of success, if you breathe normally you will not see let alone get many...
