MOUNT IDA – The FLW Bass Fishing League is headed to Lake Ouachita Feb. 20 for the first of five stops in the Arkie Division series. As many as 400 pro and co-anglers will be competing for top awards of up to $8,000 and $3,000, respectively.
“Right now the lake’s kind of tough,” said Team Folgers pro Scott Suggs of Bryant. “The water levels have fluctuated a lot more this time of year than normal. Normally this time of year we’re fishing outside grass lines at 25 or 26 feet, but so far it’s been 13 to 16.”
