Greers Ferry Lake and Little Red Fishing.

                                                                            Greers Ferry Lake

I took the Kayak out to Greers Ferry Lake in Heber Springs Tuesday September 4th. I put in at the Highway 25 Recreation area early am. The water was nice calm and clear. I wasn't able to find the big fish
but caught about 5 sunfish.

The Lake was so clear you could see the big fish deep. I thought this handsome guy deserved a pic.

Little Red Float

On Thursday September 6th I took my cousin on a day float/fish trip down the Little Red River. We put in about 7am on an access just outside Searcy and floated down 10 miles to Westpoint Ar.

This is the trip map charted on an iPhone App it measured 10.10 miles total.

We started out trying to fish top water baits but didn't catch anything we floated about 4 miles and spent about 4hrs trying different lures we finally started hitting fish on shallow crank baits.
I caught this Gar on a small crank bait it was about 2ft long and just under 2lbs. I couldnt believe it we saw Gar chasing shad all day long.

My cousin caught this nice Blue Catfish on a small crank it weighed about 2lbs.

This was another Blue Cat I caught he put up a pretty good fight.

In all we spent about 8 hours on the river Thursday and caught about 15 fish. We had a blast and plan to go again.
