    Good Post Dpiper

    I usually carry one or two TPWD books with me just in case someone has a question about something, it's better to ask then to take a chance and get cited for undersized fish or fishing without a license.
    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Lake Houston has always been noted for its catfishing prospects; it just doesn't have the camping facilities that the other East Texas Lakes do,i.e., Conroe, Livingston, Rayburn, and Toledo Bend. Lucky are the fishermen who live next to Lake Houston.
    Ain't nothing like fishing.

    It;s a shame becuase there are a lot of people in the area that can only bank fish and the are missing out on a good lake to fish in.
