Pro Angler Kevin Short
Thirty-six boats competed in the final regular season MR. BASS of Arkansas tournament held Sunday, out of Murray State Park on the Arkansas River. The question before blast off was, who would lock up, who would lock down, and who would stay? However after a long triple digit day in the Arkansas sun it seemed that the decision of which pool to fish didn’t matter much for quantity of fish, but for quality, the Little Rock pool prevailed earning the top three spots on the day. ┬áHere is how the top three pros & cos finished their day.
