    What's up, guys/gals? New to the BOC, just thought I'd start out with some pictures. I'm a kayak fisherman--living in LR, AR. I'm fishing out of a 12' Ocean Kayak Speck...most of the time in the Arkansas River just north of the I630 bridge (for you locals).

    A few pics from my Lake Ouachita Labor Day adventure...

    It was fun to finally get the Speck out on some big water. Love the bow spray heading into the wind. Caught a few rays (sun), but no fish. The water is extremely clear--something I'm not used to and honestly am not a big fan of. Got to try out the new sea anchor...tried to stay pretty close to shore most of the time. Probably paddled a total of about 5 or 6 miles.

    On to some fish pics...

    These are just a few of my fish from the past week--caught near the main channel of the Arkansas River. I've been out on the river just about every night after work (when it's not raining) for the past couple of weeks. I'm gradually going deeper and finding bigger fish. Of course the one night that I catch the biggest fish I've ever caught in my life (probably about 9-10 lbs) I didn't have my camera. Here's a few blues and channels...been using shad/bream caught with a cast net (which is hard as hell to learn to throw). Enjoy...
