Picked up a 3 wt fly rod Friday before heading to Hot Springs Village Arkansas for the weekend.
Got the chance to go fishing Saturday and Sunday evening on Lake De Soto.
Put a small hook with some earthworm on the fly rod and really had a blast.
Caught all sizes and varieties of perch each evening to use for catfishing.
Both nights put out 5 rods with various size perch some under floats, some on the bottom with a sliding sinker.
No bites the first night and on Saturday caught one small mud cat and something ate one of the hand size perch right up to the hooks but no further .
This is the 1st cat I have caught at this location in the last 4 attempts.
Previously would always get a few here. Guessing I will have to find a new spot for some cats in the area.
My son had his kayak Saturday evening and caught several bass on small topwater and shad rap.
With the exception of the catfishing it was some good fishing and great to be able to spend a little time fishing with my oldest son.

True, good definitely outweighed the bad.

Give Caddo River a try and rent a canoe or Kayak, it's a good easy float and good fishing.



Slide right, coming in .... Fish On!

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I went to Lake Catherine for holiday.
The water was so clear you could look down in the water and see the fish.
The fish were looking up at me saying Thats the best you are feeding us?I dont think so.
I caught one little fat fish. But fun trying.
The raccoons were waiting to steal anything I caught. Sorry guys.
