Hello,

Looking for some suggestions on a staycation type of thing in late March/early April. Ideally would like to find an airbnb type of thing on the water, couple of guided trips for crappie and hybrids/striper. Have a 6 yr old who would love to catch those. Looking for lake suggestions (probably within 2 1/2 hr drive from DFW) and guide suggestions. Thanks!

Check us out at www.gonefishin.biz on Lake Richland Chambers.(1 1/2 hours South of DFW) We specialize in "Family Fishing Fun". The Cabins at the Marina we fish out of may be too small/rustic for you but there are numerous nice BnB's on the Lake. April is AWESOME for Whites/Hybrids on RC and are much easier than the Crappie for a 6 year old to catch. I can email you a couple of Vacation Rentals other Customers have stayed in if you PM or email me at simmonsroyce@hotmail.com.

Thanks and good luck!


Thanks,

Uncle Gus's on Whitney is nice. They have several striper guides running out of there.

Royce failed to mention that the restaurant about 50 feet behind the cabins is Excellent food and very reasonable prices, My wife and I have stayed in the cabins several times and while they are pretty small they were clean and pet friendly. Plenty big for us two and our big baby!

Take a look at Cedar Creek. Lot of rental options. Great fishing - crappie and white bass and hybrids. I would not rule out a blue cat trip either... lot of fun to catch and great eating - right there with crappie.

Laner on this board, Lane Palmer, guides, has a couple of boats now. Look for some of his post. If you want to try the Blue cat, look up Jackie Kennedy... he is a great guide, wonderful with kids, and will put you on the fish. With the blues, never know when you will hook a big one!

Cedar Creek is a big lake, lot of options on places to stay. North end - Gun Barrel City, lot of places to eat, a Walmart and couple of other grocery stores. Also a go cart - fun park on the Seven Points side, for something else for the kids to do. Tool side is quieter, but still within a 10-15 minute drive of all you need to get by.

Good luck, have fun, stay safe!

2014 Premier Alante 235 RF tritoon. Momma's boat. But I get to fish on her.

A country boy will survive... but those who cross him?

Cedar Creek personal best:
Blue Cat 31.55 lbs
Hybrid 6.2 lbs
Crappie 2.1 lbs
