Texas Trip Advice

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I realize this is a non-Table Rock Topic, but I am heading down to Dallas for work Apr 29-May24. Seeing as I’m driving I’ll be bringing some fishing gear. I’ll be about 3 miles SE of Lake Grapevine and 65 miles due west of Lake Fork. With as much as we are all on water I was not sure if any of you have experience down there, but pointers/tips on where to fish that are somewhat close would be greatly appreciated. 

Hope you are all well after the storms this weekend.

Sounds good fellas. Yeah, I’m leaning toward a guide one of the days on Fork and then walking the banks of Grapevine. There are a ton of lakes in the area that look solid also. If I catch anything worth mentioning I’ll be sure to get them on here.

 

Thanks for the advice.

If you can find grass on Lake Fork anymore I’d make sure and have a rattle trap type bait and rip it through the grass. Hard to beat red color. I’m sure a big ole worm Texas rigged would work too. Not sure on colors they prefer down there.

was just at lake fork doing a seminar this past weekend.  the spawn is still not over due to the weather.  good chance it will be finished when you are there.  if you could swing it, getting a day out with a guide would be the best way to go.  i would give lake fork trophy lures (800-408-2028) a call.  they will be able to give you some names and numbers of the best guides on the lake.  ask for ronnie parker or kevin sharp and tell them i said you should call.

Thank you sirs, I’ll be sure to reach out to them. I’ve dreamt about fishing that pond for some time now so hopefully they can put me on some. I’ll be sure to mention you fellas.

Thanks again.

Give Jason Hoffman a call. I have 2 buddies that used him and that will be a repeat thing as they were more satisfied than any other guide they've used anywhere in the country. Look on his FB page for his contact info. Hes a younger guy verses the old folgies. Hes the real deal. Good luck on your venture.
