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!!!

Season Kick Off

With one more week of vacation before the lodge/guide service kicks off for the season, Nancy and I were fortunate to get invited to fish a 250-acre lake in east central Arkansas for a couple of days…..and what a couple of days it was!! The first afternoon we only landed 14 fish, but they were great BASS. My biggest three weighed 21 pounds, and I had several more in the 4,5,6 pound range. Nancy was terribly proud of her largest fish coming in at 8 pounds!! What a fun time if you are a bass fisherman and that is putting it mildly…….Now is the time to think about your trip here to the White River and Arkansas Ozarks. Bookings are coming in on a regular basis so get in touch with me so we can get you the dates you want!! LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE……IT’S TIME TO GET OUTDOORS AND DO SOME FISHING!!

Have I Got a Deal!

Have I got a deal for some of you folks!! How about your own vacation rental home right on the banks of the world famous white river?? I have entered into a great relationship with the owner of two vacation rental properties on the White River. \

One is in Norfork and the other one is upstream of Cotter. I can still guide you and pick you up on the bank right in the yard of your vacation rental home. There are some of you who like to do your own thing and these homes give you the opportunity to do just that. Go to the links below and look at both properties….You will be impressed to say the least. All the information you need about rates/bookings/locations can be found on the sights below.

Book your vacation rental then contact me to set up your guided fishing on the White & Norfork rivers!! If you have questions please contact me and I will try to help out!
