A white bass like this one pulled from Lake Hamilton may be more than an angler’s table fare and possibly worth up to $10,000 during the third annual Hot Springs Fishing Challenge, May 1 through July 31. The challenge offers fishermen a chance to catch one of 60 specially tagged fish from Hamilton or nearby Lake Catherine. The $10,000 fish, known as Big Al III, could be a bluegill, a catfish, a white bass, a crappie, a walleye or a largemouth bass.
