Fishing Report 9/11/2013 White River Arm

I read on here the other day that a few people were doing well up in the White River arm of the lake by Shell knob. I had never been over there so I wanted to check it out myself but had no idea where to go. I had never even been to Shell Knob or really knew where it was. So I had to hit up a friend (Bill Babler) for some info. He got me right on the fish. My Dad and I both were using a Quick 5, mine was PB & J and my Dad was using the Brown & Orange. The first spot we hit I had 4 and Dad had 0! But then we kept seeing some fish come up to the top and chasing about 200 yards away on the next point so we ran over there. It was a large school of black bass. We quickly changed to a Strike King 1.5 square bill and on the first cast into the school my Dad caught a 3.5 pounder. After that one it was all shorts with maybe 1 or 2 more keepers but it was sure fun! We caught about 15 or 20 in that school. Even if they were not coming up we were just blind casting in 50+ feet of water and still catching them.

The main ramp is on the South side of the 39 hwy bridge. You can also launch at Big Creek, Campbell Point, Viola or on H. hwy just South of the Viola exit on the left. About 4 miles down H. Coming from Cassville or Arkansas you have Eagle Rock 2 locations one being free, Viney Creek, Big M. and the old Sweetwater access down toward Viney Thru old town Golden. There is also a pay launch at Hickory Hollow Resort up the Kings River accessed off of 39 South.

That should pretty much get ya wet.
