BEST Bank Fishing in Central Arkansas
Bank fishing is a popular option for many anglers because you don’t have to own a boat (obvious, I know) and it requires less commitment.
If you like to bank fish then you can carry a pole in the back of your vehicle and cast a line anytime you feel the urge. No boat docks or trailers required!
Bank fishing is one of my favorite activities. Now, I will say that I don’t usually catch much but that probably has something to do with the fact that I have three kids who love to throw rocks into the water while I’m fishing.
However, if you’re a more serious angler (without rock throwing kids), today I’m going to tell you about some great bank fishing lakes in Central Arkansas and beyond you have to try!
