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!!

Winter Bass Fishing

You can expect this kind of picture in the Winter when folks are not on the river. The bass fishing will only get better as the water temps rise. Tempo is 48 right now and may go down a little in the next few weeks but not much.

Once these big bass makes their move to shallow to feed they don’t go back to deep water, just keep casting and HANG ON!!!

Come to LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE AND FISHING LODGE…… WE WILL FIND SOMETHING TO DO TO MAKE YOU HAPPY!!

 

HAPPY 2017

img_2665HAPPY 2017 TO ALL YOU FINE FOLKS AND HOPE YOUR NEW YEAR IS GETTING OFF TO A GOOD START. Things here on the White River are cold and slow for the moment. After the holidays the temps dropped, and we are in a deep freeze for the next few days. I have caught trout in 2017, so I know they are still there and ready to provide fun for all fishermen!! We have been spending time at our hunting camp with deer season finally coming to a close January 15th.

I will have a few more days of bow hunting left to get that last deer of the year!One thing for sure is there is still plenty to do here in Arkansas. TROUT FISHING is great all year long…and there are some good days to have BASS fishing on Norfork Lake. I am going to promote that more this year for those of you who accomplished fishermen or those who want to learn how to catch BASS!!

Have a good week and get started now making plans to visit LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE

Small-Mouth On White River

SMALL-MOUTH ON THE WHITE RIVER…..Folks that have come here for a long time have no idea you can fish all day JUST FOR SMALL-MOUTH.You just have to know the banks that hold them and what baits to present to them. A couple of days ago I fished Richard Ferranto from Buffalo City to Norfork with our primary target being Small-Mouth. We caught 25 “Smallies” with three 2.0 to 2.25 pounders. That is not bad for the White River. We also caught 8/10 Rainbows and two small Browns. If you have an interest, you can contact me, and we can work out the details of YOUR trip! AS A SIDE NOTE….low water keeps this from happening as when the river drops it takes water away from where the “Smallies” hang out. They move out to the middle of the river and are hard to catch in the deep water. BOOK A TRIP TO LINGER’S GUIDE SERVICE & FISHING LODGE to enjoy yourself and have a little fun!IMG_2537
