Lake Bob Sandlin Premier Guide Service with Dillon Lee

What a blessing growing up on Bob Sandlin and in small town America has been for me! This water runs deep in my soul and has been a God send all of my life. I grew up in Pittsburg Texas on the waters of lake Bob Sandlin and Cypress Springs. The love of fishing has been near and dear to me from a very young age. My grandmother Ruby Lee, a seasoned crappie fisherman, started me out on Sandlin about the time I started walking not long after the lake opened! Fishing became so much more than a hobby, and more of a way of life for me. I started tournament fishing at about the age of 11 and have been at it ever since with much success over the years on area lakes. That passion has since then transpired through my family who all enjoy fishing and even compete with me on tournament days from time to time. I am married with two children and I also am the 16 year owner of Dillon Lee Insurance, a Farmers Insurance Agency in neighboring Mount Pleasant Tx. Sandlin is a 9,004 acre flourishing reservoir tucked away in North East TX that can fish to the confidence or strong points of most anglers year round. Other lakes available upon request include Lake Welsh, Cypress Springs and Lake of the Pines. I offer shallow water spring time crappie trips as well. These are a lot of fun for the wife or kids and a quick way to fill the freezer. I also run night trips for bass in the later spring and summer months. Sandlin fishes great at night and you can get your arm ripped off while not having to deal with the sun and heat. If you are new to the area, have a tournament coming up or just want to spend a day out fishing I would love the opportunity to earn your business.

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 24)

GOOD. Water stained; 79 degrees; 0.13 feet below pool. Fishing patterns should remain consistent until the summer weather pushes the fish into deeper water. Crappie are good on brush piles 15-20 feet deep using minnows or jigs. Catfish are good shallow on cheese bait or cut bait. Sand bass good on main lake points with slabs. Report by Marty Thomas, Lake O the Pines Crappie Fishing. The shad spawn is on, so the bass are chasing shad along the banks biting chatterbaits or topwaters. Bass are good off the points in 10-15 feet of water with Texas rigged worms, deep diving crankbaits. Report by Mike Stroman, R & R Marine. Bass are excellent and schooling activity is starting so keep a popper at hand. Topwater bass bite is picking up with frogs and popper patterns. Bream are bedding on sandy banks with bead heads and wooly buggers. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Anticipate heavy traffic on the lake this weekend with the Memorial Day holiday. This week is National Safe Boating Week, for more information check out Texas Parks and Wildlife online and search for “Boating Safety Tips.” Happy Memorial Day!
