Welcome,

I've got a sister that lives on the water a couple of miles north of Huxely Marina on Toleda Bend that I visit frequently. *Should be down there middle of January to do some Crappy fishing if they are running. *If not it'll be sandies and juggin for cats. *I've got a place up on Lake O The Pines that is just a little piece of heaven as well.

Rick
