Good afternoon everyone, I am in need of a little help here. I have a good family friend of mine that has been like a third grandfather to me that is wanting to go on a guided trip for crappie. He is approaching his 90th birthday, but still shares the same excitement of catching fish as he did in his earlier years. He is a Korean War Veteran with a Purple Heart Medal for when he served as a Marine. He explained to me that he has worked hard to catch fish his whole life and now he thinks he deserves to sit down and just catch fish in comfort as I agree with him. He lives in the Gordon area which is just north of Stephenville about 30-45 minutes, so we would prefer to stay somewhat around that area if possible(Possum Kingdom, Bridgeport, Granbury, Leon, Hubbard Creek, etc. maybe???). I would love to get him on a bunch of fish and let him enjoy it while sitting down. No need to worry about babysitting him the whole time because he has plenty of spunk in him to fish the whole time, and he will keep you entertained with his great sense of humor and amazing stories. We will need a trip for either two or three of us as I will be joining him on the trip and my brother may as well. Please let me know prices and dates available! I want him to catch tons of fish if at all possible. Thank y'all and God Bless!

I am probably too far away to take him but if you and your brother pay the $300.00 for the trip he can fish for free up here on LOP

Freedom is not free. Tell him we Thank Him from the bottom of our heart for his service to Our Country. I hope he gets to go soon. If I am still alive at 90, it will be very hard to beat a day of fishing!

Luck will beat skill any time you have enough of it!

LOP would be my choice! It is producing really big crappie right now and Buff2 is as good a guide as any on Pines! That is cheap enough for 3, and again, Pines is producing huge crappie!


I like my fishing like a whino likes his wine!
