  1. Larry Babin Hogs on the Fly 870-321-2792. Great guide my wife and I fish with him when we make the trip to White River.
  2. Thank you for the recommendations.
  3. If you are surf fishing you learn to read where the waves are breaking. Typical on the gulf coast there are 3 bars running parallel to the shower and you can tell when the waves roll over them. Waves bring water in and it has to get back out somehow. So you watch where the waves do not break until they hit the beach. This is a drain that lets the water move back out. It also pulls bait back out and the fish hang around for the bait to be pulled out. Depending where your at there are all kinds of things to catch whiting, redfish, black drum, pompano, jack crevalle, sharks. You would be amazed how big of sharks are caught every year along the Texas gulf coast. Run bait out 200-300 yds offshore and if you are lucky you can figure out how to get and 8 to 10 foot shark beached and released. Shark a thon happens every year on the Padre Island National seashore. Huge shark fishing tournament.
  4. I need some advice on traveling with waders. Are there any light weight reasonable priced stocking foot waders that pack small for traveling? I will be flying into Jackson Hole Wyoming. Thank you for your advice
  5. Live on the Texas Gulf Coast and fish the saltwater all the time. Reels do not become a problem until you start dipping them in the salt water. If you do they need to come apart and be rinsed otherwise they corrode. If not dipped in saltwater a gentle rinse with fresh water. I run a boat in the saltwater needs to be washed after every trip. The motor also needs to be flushed. Not a big deal just have to be very willing to do it every time.
  6. Well here on the Texas gulf coast we would rig either weedless or with an 1/8 or 1/16 oz jig head and fish for speckle trout and redfish with. Bouncing slowly across the bottom.😀

    High Water

    We typically rent a boat for that week. Don't think my flats boat would work in the river. We get a guide for at least one day.

    High Water

    Planning a trip to the White River the 3rd week of July. Looks like I will have to deal with high water what changes will I need to make to deal with the water. Typically my wife and I fly fish but we will also have spinning rods with us. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Rental Boat

    I would call and reserve a boat now. We are going down and camping. When I called the state park about a boat they recommended reserving. You could also try Newlands and Gastons if the state park is out of boats. David Clark
  12. Fishinwrench,

    recently moved back to St. Louis grow up here. Fished LOZ in the late 60's and early 70's. See areial photos that show dock after dock. Also here that it is a zoo in the summer. It's close is it worth fighting the crowds? Wife and I like to smallmouth , largemouth, and  walleye fish. Just looking for someone who is there to provide some insight.


  13. Gentlemen and ladies having grown up here in Missouri and lived in other parts of the country you have unbelieveable access. Come visit Texas and try to find a place to even go squirrel hunting. Not many places for the average person to go and attempt to hunt. Wildlife areas are all draw to hunt. Deer hunting better have family with land or deep pockets.Not unuasal for 5 guys to lease 500 acres at $2000 per gun. Really good not high fenced ranches, year round lease, including a feeding program can run $10,000 a year. Same with bowhunting. Fishing is a little better they do a reasonable job of stocking but mostly in the coastal fishery.
  14. He is looking for the actual track people cut it in sections and weld an eye to tie a rope to. Seen them used on white river many times.
