    There's plenty of good fishing and the weather is not much different than Texas. What part of Texas are from? I lived in La Porte for about 15 years. At any rate I believe you will find plenty of fishng here and welcome to Arkansas if you do make the move!

    Wish you well on your jurney, I think you will love it here people are very nice and always willing to give a hand to thoses in need or just becouse! I am a owner myself as far as a home but you will find that the cost of living is much cheaper and housing rent or buy is lower than most states. but most of all fishing is good!!:smile2:

    Depends on where you get as too how much the rent is and what you get. As far as fishing - there is plenty of it and it is a lot cheaper than Texas!

    I came from California myself about 5 and a half years ago. I tell ya, rent sure is heck of alot cheaper here and there's heck of a lot more fishing holes to get to depending on where you move to. If you move out towards the country part you will find rent is cheaper then the bigger towns and all. I love it here compared to California. Love the country and the people are great here! Good luck on the move as well as job searching.

    If you move to a small/average town the rent will be plenty cheap. If you move to a college town however.... $750 will probably be the lowest. I love the fishing around here...any kind of fish you want you can get it in the lakes or the river, you will love it if you make the move.

    Jesse, I am not really familiar with the fishing in Arkansas but I can tell you one thing. The BOC'ers I have met from Arkansas are some of the nicest folks in the world. I hate to say it, but I would skip a Texas gathering to go to one up in Arkansas. I'd bet if you moved up there, there would be plenty of folks around there to take you to their favorite fishing holes. Good luck to you.
