I am starting this thread for the trip swapping idea that was started in the Open Freshwater Discussion Area. I'll go first.

My home lake is Grapevine. I have a 1994 Procraft V180 (18 1/2') Fish & Ski with a 115HP Mercury I keep in a slip at Twin Coves Marina. I fish for Large Mouth Bass and Sand Bass out of the boat and crappie out of the slips. I live in Flower Mound, TX., am 49 years old, have a wife & 3 daughters but we are empty nesters.

I would swap for a trip on any lake, or bay, except Grapevine or Lewisville Lake. I am really interested in:

Lake Fork (Never been)
Fort Phantom Hill (Been to the fort but not on the lake.)
Any lake in the Austin area. (I have a daughter that lives there so lodging is cheap.)
Any lake in the Oklahoma City area. (Same)

If anyone is interested in a swap please email me. The email address is available on the email icon above.

Kevin

If anyone wants to hit Choke Canyon or Falcon Lake give me a shout. No wife or kids, so any weekend is pretty much open for me. I fish for LMB and have a Skeeter zx185c with a proV 150.

This sounds great. Excelent Post ksutton:

My home lake is Joe Pool. Joe Pool may not be one of the lakes on your "must fish" list, but for me this is just as much about fishing with other anglers as it is about other lakes. I primarally would like to fish lakes around the metroplex.
I have a 17' DC Nitro with a 120, and can always manage a few fish on JP. The numbers on JP can be really good some days. I primarally fish for Blacks, but have been known to get on the sandies from time to time too.

I will certainly take part in this. Would love to meet more people from TFF. If you want to fish Granbury, or Eagle Mountain or possibly any other DFW lakes then let me know. Can always catch a few on Granbury or EM.

All 3 of you will be getting an email from me before the weekend is over. I'm at work now and am getting a little busy.

This has been one of the most useful threads on the forum. I've had some great fishing trips that I wouldn't have been on otherwise. Being a monetarily challenged college student, it's the best alternative to a guide you can imagine. No offense to guides, but I can much more easily justify some gas money and lunch or breakfast as opposed to the usual $200+ for a guided trip.
Kevin is a great guy with a great rig and I had a really great time fishing with him. I'd recommend him to anyone that wants to have a fun trip on Grapevine.

Wish I had a boat to switch trips with people on. However, here is how it usually works for me. A lot of people come out to fish Alan Henry and I spend about 80 days a year on the lake. Though I only do it on weekends (and on rare occasions a weeknight or weekday) that I have no prior trips scheduled or tournaments, I have been known to sort of guide people on the lake. Though its LMB only, if you are looking for someone to show you the lake, some prevalant techniques, some typical patterns, and some good structure your welcome to email me.

I should get out and meet more TFF folks, too. I have a white 2003 Triton V186 Magnum 18 1/2 foot aluminum boat with a Mercury 115.

I am a long time bass club and team circuit bass angler (only bass club these days), but lately I've been spending as much time crappie fishing as bass fishing. I seem to be slipping in my old age; this year I will duplicate my worst club finish: 3rd place.

I live 3 miles from the Loyd Park ramp on Joe Pool, but even though I've caught some nice crappie there in recent weeks, I am certainly no expert on Joe Pool.

The only lakes in this part of the state I don't know at all are Grapevine, Ray Hubbard, and Lavon. I'd also like to better learn Eagle Mountain, Granbury, Bridgeport, and Ray Roberts.

I have probably had the best tournament success on Texoma, Whitney, Proctor, Palestine, Limestone, and Lewisville (yes, I know, a strange combination). I seem to have mastered the art of finishing one place out of the money on those lakes. From late March to early May, I'm usually on Fork, sight fishing. I don't fish Fork the rest of the year.

I can't get off work during the week, but most any weekend morning when the temperature is above freezing, I will either be out fishing or riding my bicycle.

I'll be at today's crappie seminar at Sherman, and the one next month, too. I'm still a crappie beginner, but I'm learning.

Nick, I need to sign up for an EM lesson; I've been snakebit on that lake for too long.

Great thread. I fish Fork and Texoma a great deal. Run a Champion 203 dcx. Texoma for smallmouth and fork for monsters. Anyone interested I'd be willing to help on both lakes.

ChadK,
Most of my recent Joe Pool trips have been crappie trips, so I don't have much to offer for bass spots, but I'm just 3 miles from the lake, so if you end up without a partner for a trip, give me a shout.

Well, I've got my daughters moved (again) and race weekend is over. (Had a great time and saw 3 great races!) Now it's back to fishing. Give me a week or 2 to get back on the patterns on Grapevine and I'll be ready to take someone out. I would love to swap some time on Grapevine with one (or both) of you Joe Poolers, preferably for crappie.

TTU_fisherman,

Now that gas prices are dropping back down I might take you up on a trip to Alan Henry. And when you are in Bedford it's not far to Grapevine Lake. If you want to go sometime just let me know. We'll go out for a while.

Kevin

Hey all,

I fish all the local San Antonio waters including Medina, Canyon and Choke Canyon. If anyone would like to fish this area I usually have a open seat.
