A long way to a nearby fish

Dean and James Setser drive over 30 hours from Arkansas to fish smallies on Irene Lake. I picked them up this morning and they reported countless small mouth bass over 17 and 18 inches with some in the 20 inch range. Dean actually figures a trip longer than a week would be too hard on his arms.
It seems funny that after a drive from Arkansas, they would fish in sight of the camp.
