BULL SHOALS, Ark. --   Fishermen in Missouri and Arkansas are split on whether a huge predator fish is good for Bull Shoals Lake.

But in Missouri, conservation officials plan to start stocking the Missouri side of Bull Shoals Lake with 16,000 stripers, starting early next month.

In this Web Extra, Kenneth Shirley, district fishing supervisor with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, tells this history of this controversial fish.
