I will be camping with my girlfriend and her family this weekend at Chicot State Park. I was wondering if I could somee info on the fishing there. I have done some bass fishing before but am no pro. Just wondering if anyone has been fishing and if I could get a pointer or two.
Thanks

We went this past Sunday. The bass were killing the bream near the surface about 15yds. off the bank but they would not bite a thing. Between three and half of us (half being my wife) in two boats we only got one bite and we have a pretty good idea what we are doing. Talked to a few people and the bream action was slow. The only ones that caught a few were catching them in 4-6ft. Definitely fish the rocks near the spillway. The lake looked perfect.The locals told me to fish the north end. There was a small storm that rolled in that morning, only small sprinkles but maybe that's what changed everything. With all the good weather hopefully you will have some good luck. My wife and I are planning to camp up there soon, its beautiful. Let me know how you do. Hopefully you tear 'em up.
