    Fish care

    I've debated on whether I wanted to respond to these suggestions. Some of them I would agree with and others I don't. However, once the angler takes possession of a fish, it is ultimately up to them to provide the care they see fit to provide. So it doesn't really matter what my opinion is lol. With that being said, I don't agree with # 4 "Critical." Keeping the live well temperature close to 65 degrees seems extreme. Currently, the water temperature on Bull Shoals Lake doesn't dip to 65 degrees until greater than 40 ft. The temperature at the thermocline is 75 degrees. I would say trying to keep livewells in the low to mid 70's would be more beneficial and reduce the chance of temperature"shocking" the fish. The general rule that I use is to try to keep the livewell temps within 10 or so degrees of the surface temperature. That is close to what BASS has recommended in the "Keep Bass Alive Handbook" (link). But again it is up to the angler taking care of their fish to decide the best methods to keep their fish alive.

  4. Another one of those head scratchers on how did it get in Bull Shoals Lake. They are somewhat common in many of the rivers in the state including the White River. American Eel only spawns in the ocean but spend some of their life cycle in freshwater. http://www.ktlo.com/2018/06/26/potentially-record-setting-eel-caught-in-bull-shoals-lake/

    Kimbering Docks?

    Here is more information of the "commercial" zone restrictions and what is considered a "commercial zone". This a Little Rock District only regulation. I believe there is no other district that has this regulation. This regulation was the result of an altercation that occurred on Bull Shoals Lake. This regulation is only for commercial zones at Marina concession sites. The dock must be posted with a red sign saying either "Restricted - Marina Customers only within 50 feet from this dock" or "Restricted - Marina Customers only beyond this sign". https://www.swl.usace.army.mil/Portals/50/docs/recreation/SWLR1130-2-57.pdf Here is some historical info about how the restriction came about from the Arkansas side. This was written in 2009. Ward fought hard at the time to get this restriction stopped. https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/basscatowners/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=7629&p=7276&hilit=USACE#p7276

    Walleye

    I'm not sure about the upper end but the members of the Twin lakes Walleye club have been slaying them from Peel to the Dam. Bottom bouncing on points has been the ticket for them. In the morning, they have been catching them in 20' of water. As the day goes on, they start to catch them in 30' of water. Numerous reports have mentioned using orange or gold blades.

    Big Heads in Bull Shoals????

    John, can you send me an email too? My email is Jeremy.Risley@agfc.ar.gov I tried to contact you via FB this morning but never got a response.
  12. Wow, I was curious about this because Arkansas started asking for SSN last year and I had no clue why. When I did a search, most states were referring to federal law 42 USC Chapter 7, Subchapter IV, Part D, Section 666(a)(13). Here is a link to Section 666: http://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=granuleid:USC-prelim-title42-section666&num=0&edition=prelim (13) Recording of social security numbers in certain family matters.-Procedures requiring that the social security number of- (A) any applicant for a professional license, driver's license, occupational license, recreational license, or marriage license be recorded on the application; (B) any individual who is subject to a divorce decree, support order, or paternity determination or acknowledgment be placed in the records relating to the matter; and (C) any individual who has died be placed in the records relating to the death and be recorded on the death certificate.
  13. This document explains why the USACE is holding water right now. The water level at Newport needs to go down so they can release water. In conversations with the USACE, they told us they are going to build a high water ramp near the dam at some point in the near future. We hope they will make it so it can be used at all levels and not just high water. We also want to build a weigh-in facility at some point in that area and that would be a great combination. http://www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil/pages/docs/White_River_Master_Manual.pdf
  14. Nice!!! When is my guided trip??
