Still The Best

We took a float plane 70 miles South of Lafitte La and wade fished for Specs…next day we Red fished closer in deep in the marsh and had a blast. THEY TASTE GOOD TOO. The trout are biting in Arkansas so book a few days to enjoy the Arkansas Ozarks and the White River!! We still like it here the BEST!! LINGERS GUIDE SERVICE AND FISHING LODGE IS STILL THE BEST!!!


The Father/Son team from Missouri caught 75 fish and proved they knew what they were doing!! The bonus was that the Father and I have known each other for 70 years but had not been together for 35 years or so!! We had a lot of catching up to do. I am sure the Son got a little bored with the Old Man talk, but I certainly enjoyed it! Just an example how fishing and the great outdoors can bring people together. Book your trip to LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE AND MAKE YOUR MEMORIES!

James Gang Rides Again!

And so the James Gang came to the white river….again….Father David and Son Jason came once again to have a little fun on the White River. Jame was just here with his wife and came back a few weeks later with his Father. I don’t know if I know anyone else that makes as many casts as the James Gang, but that is the way to hedge your bet when trying to catch a bigger fish…keep your lure in the water…..and believe me these folks know all about that. A pleasure to fish with as they fish hard and stay with it every minute they are in the boat. The results are in the picture.!!
Enjoy the fun at Linger’s Guide Service &Fishing Lodge! You will be glad you did!
