It took some work, but we found Toyota Bassmaster Angler of the Year leader Jason Christie far back in a creek. Micah Frazier was fishing nearby as well.
Christie was Steve Bowman's first photo gallery target for Day 1 because of his AOY lead, his 2014 win on Lake Dardanelle and his skill in fishing muddy water.
Could this be another big week for Christie? Bowman notes that Arkansas and Oklahoma fish a lot alike...and further points out that most of the mud currently in the Arkansas River came from Tulsa anyway.
