Hoglaw’s Crooked Creek fishing report, May 27

Posted by Phil Lilley on May 27th, 2013

I’d have posted this in the crooked creek forum but thought I’d share it with everyone instead. For memorial day weekend, I really wanted to do an overnight float on a stretch of crooked that doesn’t get much traffic. read more…

Trolling 202

Posted by Scott Bice on May 26th, 2013

1st is rod selection; I prefer a 7’6’’ to 8’6’’ medium fast action rod. This allows for a wide spread between the rods without use of planer boards, on my boat it allows 17 foot spread between lures allowing for tighter turns in the boat without need for pulling in the rods to make the sharp turn. Those tighter turns also make it possible to “sweep” a area or more specifically target a specific structure object by running close to it and then sharply turning the boat to come across the target presenting the bait in a longer time in the key strike zones. This takes getting to know your boat and when to make that turn. read more…

Big girl on Table Rock

Posted by Phil Lilley on May 25th, 2013

Topwater TRL – Caught and released this real nice post spawn girl around 2 pm. She was still healing up from the spawn having a red, sore tail and actually a little on the skinny side for her girth. She weighed 7 lb 15 oz on my Rapala digital scales and measured 23-1/2″. I was just telling the wife the major period was about over when she picked up my 5″ pumpkin and black flake Kut Tail worm and walked off with it. Probably 9′ of water just up on a gravel shelf very close to 35′ channel edge. Definetly in shallower water than other fish we caught. read more…

First time

Posted by John Berry on May 25th, 2013

Last Saturday I had a guide trip with a couple of guys from Arkansas. Carter was an accomplished angler from North West Arkansas, who is a marketing executive that calls on Wal-Mart. He wanted to go fishing and introduce his lifelong friend, Josh, a teacher in Flippin, to fly fishing. Josh was a little bit out of his comfort zone. He was a spin fisherman, who had never tried fly fishing. He did not know what to expect but was willing to try. We met at McDonalds at 7:30 AM and we headed for Rim Shoals immediately. There was a heavy fog on the river, the sky was overcast and the temperature was in the mid sixties. The forecast called for partly cloudy skies, warm temperatures and moderate winds. The Corps of Engineers was running about 5,500 cubic feet per second (a little less than two full generators).
