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 (Apr. 17)

GOOD. Water stained; 63 degrees; 0.36 feet above pool. Crappie are good in 15-20 feet of water on brush piles on minnows or jigs. Catfish are good shallow on cut bait or worms. Sand bass are good at Blow Hole using chrome rattle traps. Report by Marty Thomas, Lake O the Pines Crappie Fishing. Bass are transitioning to the first breakline in 6-8 feet of water hitting Texas rig worms, crankbaits, chatterbaits, spinnerbaits. Report by Mike Stroman, R & R Marine. Look for black bass in feeding areas, boat docks, brush and grass. The topwater bite will be improving as the weather stabilizes, small poppers should be excellent. Look for crappie around brush and retaining walls shallow, small wooly buggers are excellent. Watch for the bream to start moving shallow. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service.
