    1. Im so glad I joined this site! I have learned a lot about of state’s lakes! Thanks!

    2. I fish Lake Thunderbird quite a bit. It’s a tough Lake, but can be rewarding!

        I live in Texas, but am going to fish on Lake Thunderbird in May, and I would really like to speak with someone who is familiar with the lake. Would you possibly consider giving me a call at your convenience? You can respond to my email address directly, and if it works out I will give my number at that time. Not trying to take up too much of your time, just looking for another fisherman’s advice.

    3. Learn to sail or hang with people that love to spend time on lake Thunderbird!

    4. We stayed at the little Axe camping ground the Woman at the gate is rude and hateful. She also tells you the wrong information. If I had a job looking at a beautiful lake all day I would thank God for being so lucky and be a little nicer.
