I would like to thank the state of Texas for the past year of living here it has been quite an experience especially living on Toledo band I must say that the fish are quite big the crappie I have never caught a three pounder until we lived here in quite a few in the 15 and 17 inch range. on fortunately the country is not suitable for me and we are going back to our native state of Oregon which I will be living close by the snake River the water I will be fishing there is called Brownlee reservoir ranked number one in the Northwest for crappie fishing I have made many good friends here and we had a wonderful blessed season on making a lot of anglers happy with our plastics in jigs thanking each and every one you and I will deeply mess many of my friends here I will be leaving the state sometimes the end of June here within the next three weeks have a wonderful and blessed summer I will catch up with everyone sometime this fall.

Glad t hear you had a good time.
I could see how the climate change could be a factor.

Sorry to see you leave but hope all of the good memories will bring you back someday. Toledo is an awesome fishery for many species.

Thank you guys for all the wishes we sure will miss everyone here I wish I could and that more guys at the Toledo Bend get-together I'm sure that we will travel back next year for the get together here is a little report from a good friend of mine from Oregon on the snake River where I will be living.

My friends returned from the Snake with 3680 crappie fillets keeping fish only 10 inches or better and 38 channel cats. Kept no bass and released as many or more crappie than they kept. The spot they fished is now under private ownership. I think they where there 10 days...
