Just curious as to what you consider is too far to drive for a day trip? For me, its 3 hours tops one way. Luckily this puts me out to Toledo Bend / Big Sam heading east. I have Conroe in my backyard but dang its tough this time of year, and most other times.

My house to Monticello is about 145 miles. That's about as far as I care to drive there and back for a one day trip

Seems like I used to do day trips from Corpus to Falcon, about 2 1/2 hrs each way as I recall. That was about as far as I like to do, really to far.

I don't do the long drive day trips anymore, I bought a place at Rayburn.

Man I gripe about my hour drive to Falcon. I bought a house in Ingleside/Corpus that fished Falcon. I didn't understand why when some great saltwater fishing was 10min from his house. I can see why now but I wouldn't fish Falcon if I lived back close to the coast or at least not often.

A two hour drive to a lake to fish is the easy part. Its the two hour drive home that bites the big one.

IF its over 2 hours one way trip it needs be converted to a 2 day minimum adventure to maximize time on water verses time in vehicle. juggle

Made a 310 mile day trip once. Drove down early that morning, fished all day, turned around and drove 310 miles back after the sun set. Luckily the fishing was great. It wasn't planned to be a one day trip but that's how it worked out and for the right lake at the right time I would do it again.

3 hours is the most I want to do, but I never turn down a chance to go fishing
