  • Arkansas Stocks Shad in Greers Ferry as Forage for Gamefish

    Arkansas Stocks Shad in Greers Ferry as Forage for Gamefish

    Biologists recently stocked 37,000 threadfin shad into Greers Ferry in an effort to reestablish this vital forage species. Crappie, bass and hybrid stripers all have shown poor condition in the last year, primarily because of a lack of forage species. Upon investigation, the threadfin shad population in the lake was completely gone. Stockings of all predator fish have been suspended, and all stockings will focus on minnows, shad, bream and other prey species until the forage base can support the predator fish already swimming in the lake.

    Westernbass Magazine, Spring 2016

    I am certainly ready for a new season of bassin’ and hope you are too. I’ve been excited to kick off the year with coverage of the International Sports Shows in Sacramento and Scottsdale as well as the Fred Hall show. Stay tuned for upcoming tank seminars on WesternBassTV, if you missed the shows. This year, WesternBass was excited to bring site users video clips from our western anglers at the Bassmaster Classic. I will be watching and cheering them on throughout the year. I would like to congratulate Lowrance pro Edwin Evers for his outstanding win at Grand Lake for the Classic championship – 29 pounds! Wow! I would to like remind anglers that WesternBass offers many features on the site to make tournament planning easy. Under the Interactive tab, we have the Tournament Calendar and Special Events with Digital Guides for all of the Wild West Bass Trail events. Under the Delta tab, you will find moon phases, weather, water temps and tide charts to help plan a fun and productive day on the tidal water. Lastly, I want to thank all of you for your support of the site and the magazine. It is because of you and our sponsors that WesternBass is the place where fishermen talk. Wayne

    Being a custom swimbait manufacturer I get asked a lot about hard swimbait rod selections. With more and more new people getting into the technique the age old question is: “Will my flipping rod work as my swimbait rod or will my 7ft XH brand XYZ rod work?” My answer is always Yes and No.
