A few weeks ago I was catching Kentucky bass, now it looks like white bass are in the area. I’m not sure if they are moving around or if I’m just now hooking them. But schools are thrashing the water and right now they seem to be in control of the area. I landed one that was a little bit over 16 inches. A nice hefty fish that made me utter “steaks” while I was cleaning it, rather than “fillets”. I wish I could have landed that second one. I learned that I should have cast again immediately into that school, rather than waste time putting the first on the stringer.
The sounds of boat motors on Lake Greeson and thunder on the horizon are pretty common in this part of Arkansas. But this past Saturday a special crew of boaters gathered at the lake and brought their high performance versions of thunderous boat motors! They were warmly invited by the local community, permitted by the Army Corps of Engineers, and the area was safety checked by Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Lots of local businesses pitched in to make it all happen, and then everyone held their breath a little hoping the event would go off without a hitch.
