To increase my chances of a DD this year, I'm gonna make a trip down to Rayburn, Toledo, or Fork once a month. I will fish Caddo and LOP the other weekends since they are close to home. Throw the big baits and hope for the best. Can you guys throw out recommendations for places to stay at Rayburn and Toledo? Wish me luck!

Also any ramp suggestions would be good. Ones that host very few tournaments. Thx

Maybe you should head to Falcon or Mexico.

The bell would probably be cheaper to go to a couple times to make sure you get one smile

Good luck buddy. Those are good hunting grounds. Guys in other states can only dream about having those options. Throw a big swimbait and be ready. Hope ya find her.

On Rayburn, Bass Buster Inn is decent for the money and in a great location. Close to The Stump..some great food, Toledo Bend I like Holly Park. Located in Patroon Creek (midlake)close to lots of great bass fishing. I like the trailers they have..Alot of people also like Fin and Feather, but I haven't been there so can't comment.

I though about the cost, but figured it would be cheaper than tournament fishing. Figured it would cost $200-250 extra a month.

As far as Rayburn, your better ramps (which never have a tournament other than a small club tournament) will be Harvey, Five Fingers and Hanks Creek. None of those have amenities onsite. As mentioned above, The Bass Buster Inn is a good place to stay, but it's not near any of the ramps I mentioned. I would stay at Lakeview Motel (on hwy 147 across from the turnoff to the Cassels Boykin ramp). You are within 10 minutes of three different ramps - 2 minutes away from Cassels Boykin. You are also within 10 minutes of a couple pretty good restaurants in Broaddus and within 25 minutes of anything you would want in Lufkin. There is also a really good tackle store right down the road from Lakeview.

I just stayed at Lake View and liked it. Verizon has no signal there, but they have WiFi. Cassels Boykin ramp is nice if south wind.

Oak Ridge is my favorite place Fork for a bed, meals, and tackle shop. LFM is nice though.

l

+1 there. Sounds like a great plan. Pretty sure most of the bigger fish and tourney bags have come from that end of the lake anyway imho.

Sounds like fun! I would suggest picking one of those 3 lakes you listed (the one closest ideally)and fish it as much as possible. I assume you are referring to 2016 spring time? I have caught bigger fish on less notorious bodies of water because I know them well and know what is happening water temp wise, weather, etc.

Good luck, I too am on a quest for DD.
