Benson Guide Service on Lake Palestine





My name is Duwayne Benson and I have fished Lake Palestine since the early 1970`s as a kid and have a passion for crappie fishing. I enjoy taking people fishing whether they are seasoned fisherman or new to fishing.

Whether its fishing shallow in the spring with corks, brush piles or timber vertical jigging, I enjoy crappie fishing year round.

I provide bait and tackle and will clean (filet) your fish and bag them up for you to take home. You will need a fishing license, snacks, hats, weather appropriate clothing and a cooler to take your fish home.

Lake Palestine

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jul. 17)

GOOD. Water slightly stained; 90 degrees; 0.08 feet above pool. Fishing patterns are holding steady. Some warm water turnovers are occurring in areas of the lake. Look for the bubbles on top of the water floating. This is a good indication there has been a turnover in the area. Try to avoid these areas as the bite will be off due to mixed water oxygen levels. The Texas heat is upon us. Please be sure to hydrate and take water with you, wear sunscreen and seek shade cover while on the water. The white bass have been good with some schooling action in the morning and the evening. Hybrid stripers, yellow bass and largemouth bass are slow throughout the day and good in the early morning and at night. Hybrid stripers are best trolling with spoons. Yellow bass are best on crappie jigs and minnows on humps and roadbeds. Largemouth bass can be caught near shoreline points with Texas rigged soft plastics. Channel catfish are always good on Palestine, but the fish are smaller in size. After the recent storm damage, the boat launch and fish cleaning station is now powered up at Lake Palestine Resort. Report by Jim Beggerly, Jim’s Fishing Lake Palestine.
