You will be hitting it at a great time...might not be a better lake in the country to hit in late April. Enjoy that lake!

You can stay in sight of fin and feather and catch good fish.

Thanks Snickers/Ol Man River.....man, as bad as my back is, it will take a while to get there but doggone it, this is something I have always wanted to do but didn't have the time/didn't take the time and didn't have a bass boat.
Well, God willing, that is about to change. Have the time/bass boat and now, hopefully, a great place to fish!
Watched fishing shows all my life, well, some 20-30 years ago. Bill Dance, Rick Clunn, Jimmy Houston all were on there and all seemed to love to fish TB and catch some really nice chunks!! !
God Bless

ALSO, Make sure you have a GOOD MAP with the Boat Lanes OR OR OR a GPS with a Map Chip with the boat lanes. YOU MUST RUN THE BOAT LANES "EXACTLY" ON TOLEDO!!!!!!! Regardless of what all these other Arm Chair Pro's Say!!!! LISTEN TO WHAT I AM SAYING!
There is PLENTY OF GOOD fishing close to Fin and Feather. AND Fin and Feather is a very NICE place to stay and also eat! You will enjoy it very much.

Lee, lots of folks run a long way to get to the fin n feather area to fish..so you shouldn't need lots of gas for your boat..unless you just want to see other areas of the lake.. Should be able to get more up to date fishing report closer to fishing time.. depending on spawn. If you go the weekend of April 18 and 19th.. you should have fewer boats.. Everyone will be on Rayburn..McDonalds.. And yep as mentioned above, make sure you do stay exactly in the lanes if you run.. only single bouys on the Texas side and they can move around .. eeks

Thanks all. I have read that about staying in the boat lanes MANY times on here. I'm old but I sure try to learn from ya'll about the hazards and dangers! I sure don't want to ruin a long wished for fun trip by knocking off the lower unit of my engine or damaging the hull!
Wisdom duly noted and will be heeded.
Thanks....I really appreciate all the words of advice...
God Bless

Another thing about Toledo is that there are LOTS of Boat Ramps so if you do not want to run OR the weather/Wind is bad then you can just trailer around to another location. PM Me before you get ready to go and closer to your trip and I will see what local info I can gather up.

Oh Yeah when are you planning to go to Falcon???? Another Bucket List Favorite!!!

Easy fishing that time of year. Just bring your wacky worms, senkos and topwaters. Fish the grass edges
