Just went last night to twok and noticed they put a lock on the public cleaning station. Or I should say used to be public side before they fired mark and hired mack.





Thanks Mack.

This is not Mack's fault, he just works there and did what he was told. The owner made the decision. Mack's a good dude, unfortunately he has to be the one to enforce the new rule. The dock is private and there were just too many people on the dock without slips. The state park is now about the only option for public cleaning stations.

Wind point has a nice one as well...and camping is cheaper than state park. The downside is it is a long tide by water from Wind Point to where the hybrids are...and there are a million trees between the two areas. We love the state park...nice facilities and clise to good fishing.

Maybe if everyone who cleaned fish there put the remains back in the lake that would help. The three times I used that ramp...it had several dead fish on the bank filleted out and rotting. Stunk to high heck...I am guessing that is why they closed it?

hmm, they locked the clean station which is their right to do so, but reading here the odor is bad, makes me wonder about the restrooms...........they were pretty darn dirty and stinky. have they locked the doors on them? We quit launching there simply because of the dirty bathrooms.

You would think that they would make everyone pack out the waste out at least dump it in the lake and not inside the marina. Common sense ain't so common.

It is sad ...some people do not care and have zero respect and are lazy....if they dirty it up and trash out and leave dead..fish remains thrown around for everyone else to see and others to clean up the mess...they do not care... period..they just go back where they came from
..now they will just trash out another place ..
You carry it in you take it out with you...you dirty it up you clean it up..you clean the fish at the lake you take the remains home with you and dispose of at home..
We always bury our fish remains in deep holes beside or trees and roses .

Well, it didn't seem to help much. I was there last Tuesday evening and there were about three nice size catfish carcasses beached right next to the ramp. I beach my boat next to the ramp to avoid contact with their horrible docks, and had to literally step over rotting, stinking, nasty fish carcasses.

I've said it before. If it weren't for their location on the lake, they would go bankrupt in about a week.


If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

We too bought the state park pass for $70 over spring break. It has already paid for itself ib state park uses...all at Tawakoni. Need some rain though pretty quick! Getting awfully shallow there too!

Support the good places and leave the lazy marina owners behind.
I did buy one of the cheap folding fish cleaning tables from Academy. I use a large cutting board and it has held up pretty good.
The nice part is we just set it up each weekend on the dock. Very portable so we can clean fish any place.
