Arkansas Pre-Spawn Walleyes

Well, it’s been awhile and I wish I had more success but it is what it is.

Been chasing winter and pre-spawn walleyes down here in Arkansas but just haven’t been able to time it right yet with time off. Weather has been all over the map but a recent string of warm weather really has helped.

Mainly focusing on the headwaters of Greers Ferry and Bull Shoals, but my home lake of Beaver will start producing better in a few weeks. I enjoy learning new water so it’s nice getting out of town a few hours.

The males are starting to stage but no signs of the big girls yet.

Most luck has been with jerkbaits/shad raps as well as jigs (tubes and brushhogs)

Couldn’t even buy a bite with minnows this past weekend.

Thanks guys. I’m still learning the water here (as evident by the lack of walleye pics in what was intended to be a walleye post...)

The week before this picture at the dam the core opened all 7 flood gates 1’ for 7 days to dump water down stream into Table Rock. It had the eyes all sorts of fired up

I’ll admit, got my hand slapped for being that close to the dam. But I had never seen fishing so fast/furious and got caught in the moment and failed to recognize some fairly obvious signs.
