Good evening guys...new to the forum...

Ive been on the salt for the past 15 years and have made a decision to concentrate mostly on my first love of fresh water fishing. Im in sales so I have a very flexible schedule...which means I can get out on the water a lot. I live in Pasadena and am wanting to find a few spots on Lake Houston I can fish...not looking for honey holes...but would welcome someone on the boat to help me navigate some tracks to fishable areas safely.

I have a 25' 6" Majek Extreme w a 250 SHO...its a great fishing rig. I have not totally converted it to bass fishing yet but should be there in a few months...

Im looking for someone who knows the lake and wouldnt mind a day trip out of one of the marinas or ramps to point me in a direction that is a fit for my boat. I can find fish so Im not looking for your hot spots...but I dont want to tear my boat up or put a partner in harms way by not knowing an area.

If anyone is willing to help an ole boy out, Id appreciate it. Wednesday is looking good weather wise so I was hoping to get out on the lake then...I can be reached at Eight32 Five74 Two902 if anyone is interested...

Thanks

BobbyG

For me and my fishing buddies we fish primarily bass...but DO love to crappie fish. Once I learn where I can get around the lake with no issues, I can find the bass...For my wife, I want to learn how to find crappie...I think that would be fun for her. We love to catch em as well. First and foremost I need to know where to go and put in. Ive made one trip out of Deussen park and got as far as the first bridge...as it got shallower, I decided to stay on the lower end as I had a good track and was in some deeper water. I didnt do any good....just fished the boat docks on the east side. It looks as if the upper end of the lake may be more my style...at least on the charts...but am somewhat leery about putting in up there until I know the lake a bit better....
