i would like to go to pine bluff in october for a few days of fishing on the ark river. i drift for big blues and would like to know about the shad base in the river there. where do you obtain your bait? here at home the red river has a good shad population and we catch them with cast nets around the sand bars. also, what is normal pool at pine bluff? the nooa graph is showing 31 ft now and flat. what level is best to fish?
