Ricky's Guide Service, I began my guide Service in 1976 and made both you and myself a promise that I would help teach you and all others that fish with me everything I can about fishing whether it be for bass to bluegill and all about this Great Lake.

As a child I grew up hunting and fishing the old river bottom and when they began making a lake of the river I watched it as it grew all the way to what we see today. Now for over 42 years I have served as your licensed guide and I promise you today that I will do whatever I can to show you the best fishing trip I can when you fish with me. So remember if you're looking for a guide then why not give me a call and let me show you a great day on the water and also fill you in on some of Lake Palestine history.

Call today at 903-530-2201 and book your day or days with the longest running guide Service on the lake. And last but not least thank you for checking out my post. I'm Ricky Vandergriff your fishing guide.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 28)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 62 degrees; 0.13 feet above pool. Crappie continue to spawn, but half of them are done already. Most fish are 1-14 feet. Bite is good on jigs and minnows. Largemouth bass are good in 2-8 feet on baits that make a lot of commotion such as chatterbaits. Report by Sam Parker, Freshwater Fishing Adventures. Crappie have finally moved into the shallows, the white bass are in the Neches River, and the pear and plum trees are blooming. The crappie are mostly whites and mostly males, as noted by catches in the central part of the lake, but with good blackface spawning markings. Water temperatures were still a little low, with none in the central and southern areas over 60 degrees, only the Kickapoo Creek area being slightly higher. White bass were biting good along the Chandler River Park, mostly on 2 inch crappie twisters. Channel catfish are good on shrimp along that same section of the Neches River. Blue catfish continue to be good on humps and roadbed edges in the main lake in 15-23 feet on live minnows. The new Sunshine hybrid stripers were reported schooling for their pseudo spawn runs in the Saline Bay area, and are keeping size now. Trolling with Coyote spoons and 1.5-2 ounce roadrunners works.
