Little Garrett Lemons is proud of his bream he caught off of a redworm while fishing at Lake Greeson recently. Memorial Day weekend would be a great time to introduce a child to fishing for bream, likely hooking the youngster for life. Photo provided by Lisa Spencer.

Martin Tinnin caught this tank of a rainbow trout Sunday on the White River while fishing with guide Casey Hughes. With heavy water releases at Bull Shoals Dam, the river was running at about 20,000 cfs, but the high water didn't seem to interfere with this big fish's feeding schedule. Hughes took advantage of a caddis hatch in slack water to put Tinnin on this 26-inch rainbow that was released right after the photo was taken.

LITTLE ROCK – Going fishing doesn’t have to mean expensive equipment. It simply takes a hook, some fishing line and some sort of bait. You could dig around in the refrigerator for food-type baits, or make the bait-gathering duty an adventure in itself by gathering worms from the wild. Earthworms are excellent live bait for catfish, bream, bass and even an occasional crappie. And handling a nightcrawler or two will definitely prevent you from getting your hands near your face before washing them. One technique to stock up on some nightcrawlers is to break out a fiddle.
