As I'm sure most if not all of you know, there will be a central Arkansas gathering on the lower White River at Merrisach Lake Campground this coming weekend. Now I know it's Fathers Day weekend and I also know gas is high. What I don't understand is the seeming lack of interest in this gathering from the Arkansas gang? I know Jerry has been supporting this thing and talking about it for almost a year and he deserves our support wheather or not we can attend. I plan on going down on Thursday and will probably stay through Saturday and possibly Saturday night. I told my wife and family to consider this camping/fishing trip my Fathers Day gift from them to me. I really hope there is a lot of interest in this gathering and support of Jerry even if you can't attend. We have some of the greatest catfishing opportunities in the world and I might add some of the most knowledgeable fisherman in the world and an opportunity to share some time with them on those waters is, I consider, priceless. The Lower White River is known for it's outstanding fishing and beauty. The ramp on the lower White is only 10 miles from the Mississippi. There will be several guy and gals there that fish the Mississippi on a regular basis and tapping their knowledge is something I look forward to. I also look forward to meeting some good folks that up until now I have only met on screen and not face to face. The fishing should be outstanding as well. If you have any interest at all, please let Jerry know by posting here and lending him support for his efforts organizing this fishing/camping/gathering.
