Big three become big two

Big Three Become Big Two

There is a point in every season of the Premier League that certain teams begin to filter out of the Premership Title race, and Sunday was unfortunately the time where Arsenal had to drop out of the race.

It usually happens at some point, three teams that have really had a go at it find themselves tighlty knit at the top with numerous games to go. Then after a few fixtures against each other, one is seen to be drifting out towards no-mans land.

Arsenal will be far less happy with their performance against Chelsea than that of their current league position and will need to hope and pray that the West London Club and Manchester United, drop enough points over the remaining fixtures for them to spring a surprise.

Chelsea and United both looked very dominant teams at the weekend and will want to push on from here. With each mistake now looking to be pounced upon by the other it could be “goodnight Vienna” for one of them come the end of March.

Now that the Champions League will again be taking the front seat it will be imperative that both teams plan and manage their up and coming games well, and everyone knows that Manchester United?s manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, is the grand master in doing this.

The best online bookmakers do not think so however and have, after a comfortable win over Arsenal, placed them as 4/6 favourites for the Premiership title.a a a a

Where and how to catch arkansas walleye

Where And How To Catch Arkansas Walleye

To a visitor in Arkansas, Walleye fishing wouldn’t seem to be a major activity in the state since most of the locations for walleye fish is in the north. Lake Greers Ferry happens to be the best spot for walleye fishing in the state, where the largest walleye ever caught in the state fell short by just a mere two pounds from the world’s heaviest walleye ever caught.

Located 80 miles north of Little Rock, Arkansas, you will find the expansive 32,000 acre Greer Ferry Lake that is famous for being the place where the state’s biggest and heaviest walleye fish was caught. It’s the number one walleye fishing hot spot in the state. Situated in the northern center of Arkansas is the massive 45,000 acre Bulls Shoals Lake that happens to be also among the top hot spots for walleye fishing in Arkansas. Lake Ouachita is also as big as 40,000 acres in size located about 25 miles north-west of Hot Springs, and is categorized as being among the top three most famous walleye fishing hot spots in the state of Arkansas.

Apart from the three popular walleye fishing hot spots in Arkansas i.e. Greer Ferry Lake, Bulls Shoals Lake as well as Lake Ouachita, the other fairly good spots for walleye fishing include the River Saline that happens to be quite well connected by several links such as the ferry boat sites, county roads as well as a highway crossing that connects so well to another good home for walleye fish in Arkansas. Referred to as the walleye fishing secret, the Saline River also happens to be another great home to not only walleye fish but also channel catfish, making it more prolific to the fishing industry of the state.

The methods used for walleye fishing are somewhat unconventional in nature wherein the fishing boats are substituted by canoes, and the smaller trolling motors are replaced by the normal standard boat motors in certain situations that warrant trolling. Most of the feasible walleye locations are mainly found in the northern part of Arkansas. Some of the popular ones apart from the top three are: Black River, Middle White River, White Upper White Beaver Dam, and the Eleven Point. Other fairly popular spots with a fair quantity of walleye include Lake Greeson, Lake Catherine and Lake Hamilton.

The White River drainage system contributed a lot towards the high figures of walleye in the state of Arkansas. Since walleyes prefer warmer temperatures, the majority of the walleye population is found in lakes, streams and rivers, which explain why the other places downstream are devoid of walleye population.

The walleye menu is quite simple and small in nature. On the most part, the walleye fish will always eat anything thrown at them though their preference lies with the size of the food; the smaller the better. For this reason insects, worms, as well as crawfish happen to be their most preferred food. Their best preference happens to be the minnows. Deep waters are the most favored locations for walleye for safety reasons. Choosing their locations based on safety, catching the walleye means that the timing is critical. Therefore, the best time to go fishing is from dusk to midnight. That’s when the walleye feel most safe with the cover of darkness.

More fun than you can dream of on your alaskan fishing dream

More Fun than You Can Dream of on Your Alaskan Fishing Dream

If you’ve never taken an Alaska fishing vacation, then you don’t know what you’re missing! You don’t have to be an angler to enjoy the vast Alaskan wilderness or the opportunities that Alaska offers visitors from around the world. While fishing in Alaska draws millions of visitors every spring, summer and fall, there’s more to the Last Frontier than that. Alaska is dotted with thousands of square miles of lakes, rivers, streams and tributaries that offer fishermen just about any kind of fish they want to hook. Most come to Alaska for the salmon, but just as many enjoy fishing for trout, pike and halibut. Still others come to enjoy wilderness that is unsurpassed when it comes to magnitude, beauty and unspoiled miles of mountain ranges, valleys and gorges.

Visitors to Alaska don’t have to rough it, but you can if you want to. Hundreds of lodges and resorts offer world-class treatment, dining, spas and luxuries that you wouldn’t think possible way up in the land of the Midnight Sun. However, if roughing it is what you’re after, then you’ve certainly come to the right place. Millions of acres within Alaskan borders provide fishermen, hunters and vacationers the opportunity to hike, bike, 4-wheel, and horseback ride to their heart’s content. Fishing is unsurpassed and can be done from a streambed to a raging shoreline to a tributary off the ocean waters as salmon in the millions make their yearly runs upstream.

Most rivers in western Alaska are famous for their king salmon, which can weigh in at a whopping 100 pounds! Try asking for that fish sandwich at your local fast food restaurant! The best king salmon fishing to be found in Alaska is between May and July, and can be achieved through various methods such as trolling and drifting, as well as back bouncing. Salt-water fishing along the Alaskan coast can be enjoyed all year round.

Fly fishermen usually come to Alaska to catch the silver salmon, which are known for their ability to outwit their opponents and provide daily enjoyment for anglers of all skill levels. Fly-fishing for silver salmon can also be enjoyed year round. The rugged beauty of the Alaskan wilderness provides immense attraction to fishermen who long to seek new fishing spots or to try something entirely different in their fishing skills. Whether you want to fly fish or spin cast, Alaska has something for you. Inland waters provide a wealth of other fish varieties besides salmon, including but not limited to halibut, but several varieties of trout, including rainbow, cutthroat, steelhead and brook. Inland bays and freshwater streams offer plenty of opportunities and locations to fish for just about anything.

No other place in the world quite compares to the coastline and interior of the great state of Alaska. While inland waterways and lakes are protected from the ocean, storms often cause rough waters just about everywhere, and in winter provide harsh environments to test the mettle of ice fishermen who brave the cold to try their hand at that as well. No matter what kind of fish you’re looking for, or how you want to catch them, Alaska will offer more than you ever dreamed when it comes to fishing.
