    I love to fish for anything! LOL My hubby loves the Arkansas river and really prefers to wait on the big ones....His last catch was a 16lb cat out of one of them Lock and Dams (?)
    What I was wondering is Is there a place where there is slack water for me to fish on the river and a place that is rough enough for my hubby to catch the big ones?

    Try Cook's Landing, off of Crystal Hill Road. Also there is a place out under the I-40 bridge (sounds crazy, I know, but we've caught them there before). It's near Maumelle Park.
