Lake Ft. Smith, Arkansas, April 8th, 2011: Some success with Crappies!
It seems like right now the roadrunner/white grub is the lure of choice with all the fishing I am doing. Started throwing a small beetle spin and then switched to the roadrunner. I was using 6# test, which I think helped with this lake. Seems almost as clear as Table Rock Lake.
The lake has expanded....according to my GPS, I was on land the beginning of the paddle trip. Lake Shepard Springs had the dam breached and it merged with Lake Ft. Smith. Nice, large lake in NW Arkansas. Really looking forward to going back.
