The Regatta on the Upper End


rps

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.

I understand that it is a free country, but why do half the wake boaters feel the need to drive near me when I am fishing?

 Nice walleye, we found the bridgeport  area loaded with young fish of many species, the bluegill and crappie are just the right size for larger feeding fish.  My grandson was proud when he spooned these little guys up, they were 25 feet deep.  Those are the hands of an eight year old, I can't believe they hit a spoon !

Thanks for report!!

Seems the fishermen attract the tubers and wake boaters....maybe we have imaginary signs on our boats that say"please swamp me".....or i like to be rocked out of my boat by your wake...lol

Dan - great to see you getting out on the water with you grandson. Looks like he is taking after his grandfather with those jigging spoons!
