WHAT A COUPLE OF DAYS

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!

Just Keep Casting

SOMETIMES THEY ARE SMALL AND SOMETIMES THEY ARE LARGE!! Just keep casting! The Ferannto Boys had a good time on the White & Norfork rivers. The fish were a little larger on the Norfork but you can’t get there until after 1 p.m. or so due to the current generation schedule….Come to the White River and enjoy some of this great weather and water conditions we are having!!

NEW NEIGHBORS!!

Larry and Tracy Nielson have purchased the house next door and it is only fitting to show them around the White River a little bit. We had a great time yesterday tossing RAPALAS in the higher water. Fishing just a little slow but we caught plenty plus a nice BROWN caught by Larry. I THINK THEY ARE HOOKED!!

Book your trip to the White River and get in on the action. Water levels are going to remain above normal for quite some time so the fishing will remain good and the BROWNS will be on the hunt! LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE in Norfork, Arkansas. . . contact us today!!!
