On 7-23-2010, I was bass fishing and for the 1st time decided to bring my new digital camera w/ me in case I caught the big one as I usually just catch & release for sport. Well I caught the big one alright, on camera anyway. Had heard about a few small alligator sightings but never anything quite like this. My 1st thought was I'm going to need a bigger boat, my 2nd, I'm never going swimming in this lake ever again!! Says Scott Edwards
This lake is
so wonderful. If you have a boat, Lock & Dam Marina is a glorious marina. Holiday Inn Express CROCKETT is a good location to get some rest, and after a long day outdoors Comfort Suites Palestine is a good spot to spend a night or two.
