LITTLE ROCK — Each year, AGFC biologists sink hundreds of fish attractors made from natural brush or environmentally friendly inert materials in water bodies ranging from community ponds to large U.S. Corps of Engineers reservoirs spanning tens of thousands of surface acres. Adding this sort of cover can help baitfish and young-of-the-year sport fish hide from predators. It also provides sport fish such as bass and crappie ambush points to conserve energy and increase their growth rate.

Nick Harris of Little Rock found the bream on fire Sunday afternoon at Lake Maumelle. These are a couple of the 20 or so he caught in the first hour of fishing. With the full moon upon us here as we move into June, the bream will be spawning and this will be a big weekend for fishing. Consider taking a kid along for a great day and evening of bream fishing and an experience the youngster won't forget. Photo by Randy Zellers.
