ACTION FISHING TRIPS

January 1st - July 1st will be the qualifying time for our second annual trip givaway. The heaviest single white or black crappie will win a free half-day trip for 2. (To be used by the end of 2015). I keep a scale on the boat so we can weigh it right out of the water, then log the weight at the marina. March-May is filling up quickly, dont miss the fishing day you desire. Schedule now!

fish for anything that
is biting but
we target crappie most of the
time and we've developed a system for locating and catching them
year around on Lake Greeson, about 45-miles southwest of
Hot Springs, Arkansas between Murfreesboro and Glenwood.
Call them what you will - crappy,
white perch, specks, sacalait, calico bass
papermouths or whatever - we like catching them and love eating them!
But most of all, we enjoy
taking folks out on the water to "unwind" and
spend quality time making memories with their family and friends
while they catch a good "mess" of crappie.
While fishing for crappie we
often catch black bass, white bass,
catfish, an occasional striper or walleye and a few other species.

Bottled drinking water, crackers, life jackets, bait and tackle

pizza, beverages, ice and snacks are available at the marina.
We're never far from clean bathrooms and we'll
take bathroom breaks whenever needed.
Fish that you want to keep are filleted and packaged for you.
My boat can accommodate up to four adults(or bodies) and (or up to 1,100-pounds maximum weight)
with plenty of room for everyone to fish comfortably. I offer half-day and full-day trips.
Half-day trips are $350 for one or two anglers plus $25 for each additional
adult and last about 5-hours including time for pictures and filleting fish.
Full-day trips are $450 for one or two anglers plus $50 for each additional
adult and last about 8-hours including time for pictures and filleting fish.
Youngsters 12 and under are FREE with a paid adult.
There are no additional taxes or charges for fuel, bait, tackle,
supplies, drinking water or snacks.
If you're not sure whether you want a half-day or full-day trip you can
decide after you see how the trip is going and talk it over with your guide.
We usually start around sunrise but it's not always
necessary to start that early, especially in the cooler months.
We usually take a lunch break on full-day trips but you are
welcome to bring your lunch if you prefer to fish through.
