Cooper Jester, who was fishing with his sister, Avry, and guide John Duncan on DeGray Lake, found the crappie still biting well there this week. John says he nicknamed the pair Toad Thumper (for Cooper) and Slab Slayer (for Avry, see her catch below in the DeGray Lake report from John). Crappie fishing has been unusually stronger deeper into June this year, our reports say. Photo provided by John Duncan.

Throw them an inline spinner, spoon or a topwater bait and look for them in 25-50 feet.Check out his full report from Greers Ferry Lake in the Weekly Fishing Report.

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.

James Lasley of Little Rock caught this nice 5-pound largemouth bass from a private pond just outside of town using a do-nothing worm on a light spinning rod. His dad, who provided the photo, says James lost another fish about the same size about 10 minutes later. Still, what a prize on that catch!
