Question 2010 Freshwater Nationals Greers Ferry AR

Just want to get a line on who at this point is planning on fishing this tournament. There are a couple of guys in the MO, AR area who are considering this tournament, but the team requirements etc. mean we need to pool resources and trigger skills for it to make sense.

Because that is where it is???? You would have to ask the tournament directors why they chose it.

We were there a couple of weeks ago shooting fish and had a blast.

I would be curious how they decide certain places for spear tournaments...for no other reason than curiosities sake.

Re: 2010 Freshwater Nationals Greers Ferry AR

I'm with you on that, I thought Greer's Ferry an odd choice too. I guessing they chose it for it's proximity to Little Rock - easy plane ride in and out, and the clear water. It's a quarry lake like most of the AR lakes so the vis is good, and you can shoot game fish - Walleye, Stripers, Large and Small Mouth, Drum, Carp, Blue and Channel Catfish, Croppie, Bluegill, Gar etc. It's definetely a kick ass choice for a fresh tournament as you will actually be able to consume most of the fish you will see.

Re: 2010 Freshwater Nationals Greers Ferry AR

I am pretty sure it is Salt and Freshwater Nationals. They will both be held there on same date. I dont have all the details but I am sure someone will chime in with them to clarify. (Mike ?)

Aloha,
Chad

Re: 2010 Freshwater Nationals Greers Ferry AR

Salt and Freshwater Nationals in a fresh water lake? That is weird. I sent Phil Lamm of the MDC an email asking for info, if he gets back to me I will pass it on.

Is anyone planning on diving it?

Re: 2010 Freshwater Nationals Greers Ferry AR

The midwest council holds the saltwater nationals every five years. This year it is in Greers Ferry. It will be a combination of salt and freshwater nationals. It will be a one day event. The next day will be scuba nationals. There is also mixed teams and a womens division. Freediving will be 3 man teams and scuba will be two man teams. I believe you need to be part of a council to compete.

I will be there no matter what............
I was talking to Phil L. and he said I'd just get stuck riding in the boat doing "grunt work/judge" as I haven't been a member long enough, no worries there though.
I had to sit out of spearfishing most of 2009 with all the crap going on in my life -- but that's now history and I'm looking towards an ass kicking spearhunting season for 2010.

I'm going to DEMA next month and Preformance Freedivers will be there with a booth and doing demo's. I will make them one of my first stops.

I've been to Greer's Ferry a couple of times and the lake is just fantastic. The town is big enough to find everthing EXECPT ONE ITEM !!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A "DRY COUNTY" ---

THAT MEANS NO PLACE TO BUY BEER/ALCOHAL.

CLOSEST PLACE IS 60 MILES AWAY (one way) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please stock up before crossing county line and save yourself some hassel.

Other than that I can't wait for next Spring.

cya,
Steve

Re: 2010 Freshwater Nationals Greers Ferry AR

Steve thanks for that generous heads up. Looks like we will be making a stop about 60 miles out of town on our way in.

Aloha,
