I'm David Benson, I'm a crappie fishing guide here in East Texas. I've been fishing Lake Palestine since I was a young boy with my grandpa. I enjoy sharing the sport of fishing with others.

There is nothing like spending time on the water, and sharing my knowledge not only with adults but I really like enjoy getting kids involved in fishing. There is nothing like seeing the smile on their faces as they put those slabs in the boat.

It's so great to see family members bring a young one to enjoy fishing whether it's their parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or just a close friend, getting them on the water and making memories.

I look forward to spending a day on the water with you.

Lake Palestine Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 21)

GOOD. Water clear; 73 degrees; 0.28 low. Largemouth bass are good working Texas-rigged worms, shaky heads, and small crankbaits near boat docks, drop-offs, and rocks. Crappie are good on minnows and jigs around bridges and timber in 15-25’. Hybrid stripers are good on live bait, A-rigs, and swimbaits. White bass are good on slabs and jigging spoons. Look for birds diving over feeding schools. Catfish are good on punch bait, chicken liver, and cut bait.
