If you are ever up towards Lake Livingston - PM me - I live on the lake and fishing is my second passion. Right now is a little early for white bass/stripers - black bass are biting but the lake is pretty cloudy from the wind and rain - cat fish are slower than usual this time of year.
Me and a buddy kept 43 whites from Pine Island yesterday....probably threw back 15 more. I live here also. Fish Rayburn mostly though.
