Bass Fishing League Heads to DeGray Lake

Zoie Clift


The Walmart Bass Fishing
League (BFL) is heading to DeGray Lake March 26 for the second of five stops in
the Arkie Division. Around 400 boaters and co-anglers are scheduled to compete.


“The lake is about 10 feet low right now, and from the
midpoint down it is crystal clear,” said Folgers pro Scott Suggs of Bryant.
“There is absolutely no doubt that some of the fish are going to be on beds. Sight
fishing with tubes will be the way to go. You might also see a couple of guys
using wacky worms, but no matter what, they should catch the crap out of ‘em.
It is going to take about 20 to 22 pounds to win. And probably 16 to 18 pounds
to get a check.”

Takeoffs and weigh-ins will
be at Iron Mountain Lodge & Marina located at 134 Iron Mountain Marina
Drive in Arkadelphia. Takeoff is scheduled for 7 a.m. while weigh-in will begin
at 3 p.m. Takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public. The
tournament is hosted by the Arkadelphia Chamber of Commerce.


The BFL is a 24-division
circuit devoted to weekend anglers, offering bigger prizes to those who qualify
for regional championships and those who make it to one of the longest-running
championships in all of competitive bass fishing: the Walmart BFL
All-American.Top winners in the BFL can move up to the EverStart Series and the
Walmart FLW Tour.
FWL Outdoors is the largest fishing tournament organization in the world. For more information visit
