I'm headed Texas way to show my boat to a couple people that have expressed an interest. I've always wanted to visit Texas, do a little fishing, shoot a hog or two and scout a place to retire. So this Thursday I'll head out for my first stop in Albuquerque but from there into Texas I have little knowledge of the greatest state in our union! If you wouldn't mind some suggestions I would greatly appreciate your input into lakes, hog hunts, eateries and places to stay.

Here's my boat... http://texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbt...ay#Post11738976

Exactly. Very distinct parts in each corner/side of the state to give suggestions without knowing what part you are visiting. It reminds me of the old commercial the state would push out to boost tourism..... "its this whole other country".

Anyone coming to Texas has a few lakes on a bucket list, many are in the east. Rayburn, Fork, TBend, Palestine. North Texoma and Ray Roberts (plenty of others). Down South Falcon and Amistad. Gotta realize it is 900 miles across the state on I-10 and from Texoma to Falcon is over 500 miles. Just depends on how far you want to drive and how much time you have. Plenty of other waters and those suggestions should be coming.

Fresno eh? My family is from the los banos/Merced area. I would move to east Texas if I was you. A lot of good fishing lakes and the scenery can't be beat.

Thanks guys! Pleased keep them coming. I will probably head to Dallas area first as I have two maybe three individuals interested in that general area. I know Lake Fork is a good lake, any others or places to stay? From there probably east then south to Houston where I purchased this boat almost three years ago. Last would be San Antonio/Austin. If she don't sell by then back to California via Falcon/Amistad.

There is a large selection East of Dallas, if you're planning on hitting the lake Fork area. Lance Vick has very good success hunting hogs, he is also one of the better choices of guides on Fork.
Sounds like a great trip, best of luck, if I can help, just ask..

Lake athens can be a good little lake to fish, but it hasn't been too good lately I'd imagine if you went you could do decent. Lots of numbers, schooling, and possibly some decent size.

If you want to just go out and slaughter 3 and 4 pounder's all day, lake Kurth, just north of lufkin is a nice little lake to go fish. A two day pass will run you about 50 bucks though.

Thanks again! Dang I love my truck! 2015 RAM 1500 Ecodiesel, I'm getting slightly over 20mpg and the second day from Needles to Albuquerque was almost all uphill. 1100' msl to over 5,000! Smooth, quiet ride and tons of pulling power, would probably never drop below 6th gear if i didnt have to slow for truckers passing each other.

Tomorrow I get up early to watch balloon festival, then back on the road. Will make Dallas by mid to late afternoon!
