Hey guys

My dad is turning 60 this weekend and I'd like to surprise him with a weekend of guided fishing for him and me.

He lives in Arkansas and he enjoys just catching some nice fish but a big one would be icing on the cake. So, not necessarily looking for a trophy run. I just want him to have a blast and catching several would just make his day!

Would you guys recommend Fork, Toledo or Rayburn in the fall (October sometime after it starts to cool off). I'd also need a guide and a place to stay, so anyone y'all can recommend?

I figured Toledo or Rayburn may be better for quantity but Im not too familiar with either.

Thanks for any help.

Both can be fantastic in the fall. I'd add Toledo in there as well. I'd lean towards Toledo or fork if wanting a guided trip

Darold Gleason on Toledo as well. Fork has some amazing guides also.

As I'm about that age I believe I would like a little input into which lake this would happen. Also this would cover your azz. Us more experienced guys do not like surprises or foul ups.

I will admit that I am biased - with that said I would take him to Toledo Bend if it is about fishing and a day on the water. Maybe go to Fork if it is a bucket list item for him.

Rayburn can be really tough in October plus there aren't many guides on that lake. There's a few reasons for that but one is I'm not sure you could make a living just off guiding for bass out there. It can get down right tough.

My choice would be Darold Gleason on Toledo. If you have 2 days (and the $$), book a day on Toledo and a day on Rayburn. They are only 45 minutes apart.

Toledo - Stay at Fin n Feather
Rayburn - Rayburn Country hotel is probably the nicest and cleanest place within 15 mins of a boat ramp.

I would remove Fork out of that equation entirely.
Just look at this past year's reports.

Sam Rayburn in November is awesome and the weather is usually fairly mild.
