As many of you know, Eureka Springs hosts event weekends -> Corvette weekend, Beetle weekend, Alcoholic Anonymous weekend (the local tavern keepers tell me that is one of their better weekends), several diversity weekends annually, Blues weekend, and so on. Evidently, without my being aware of it, they have started a new one. Based on the evidence I saw this morning, it must be called the North American Regatta for the Under Endowed with Really Big Boats (NARUERBB). I was off the lake before 11 AM.
I fished the back of Leatherwood with top water and Ned this morning for nearly two hours. The annual pattern has not yet set up, although the cove was full of baitfish. The water back there was 77 degrees. After that I fished for walleye. I missed a couple of bites, caught a 19 inch fish and also picked up a keeper spot. I was fishing a channel break in 25 feet of water with a crawler harness. The temperature on the main lake was 79 degrees.
