Understanding Trophy & Fast-Action Fishing Before Picking a Fishing Lodge, Whiteville, Arkansas

Fishing is a great pastime and one that's enjoyed by millions of people around the world. And heading to The Fisherman's Lodge in Cotter, Arkansas, can help make your trip more memorable. They say a good fishing lodge can even organize a trophy fishing trip or a fast-action one. But before you start dreaming about a great day on the water, make sure you understand the differences between the two kinds of trips so you select the one that’s right for you.

What's the Difference Between Trophy & Fast-Action Fishing?

Trophy Fishing

Trophy fishing is when people target the larger fish of a given species that live in the respective body of water they are fishing . The process is slower and entails much more patience than the fast-action approach. Big fish are wary and smart, so you'll need to be ready to commit as much time as possible when going for a trophy. A reliable fishing lodge will give you support if you opt for trophy fishing, but you have to be prepared to possibly spend hours without a nibble if the big fish bite is slow. When it happens, it is well worth the time spent. 

Fast-Action Fishing

The size of the catch differs between these trips as well. For instance, a rainbow trout weighing four or more pounds is already considered a trophy. Meanwhile, fast-action trips usually catch fish that are around 12 to 18 inches long and weigh anywhere from ¾ of a pound to two pounds.

If you're considering an open-water outing for your next family vacation(our river never freezes even during the coldest winters)why not head to The Fisherman's Lodge? The family-owned fishing lodge has been around since 2003 and offers packages for trout or guided fishing. The cabin-style lodge is the perfect getaway for family weekends or a corporate retreat.
