    If you wanted to retire near great catfishing, have some trees, a garden and build a house where would it be? Don't have to be on the water, just want a thinly populated area. Don't want to be in a run down area of lake development gone wrong. I simply want to built a simply house for the wife. I would want to be no more than 10 minutes from a launch ramp on the lower half of a lake.

    check out lake limestone, u can live 10 mins from the ramp and be in the sticks (kinda like Valera by Ivie) but still close enuff to a small town (groesbeck 10 miles) to get supplies. Also the property that is off the lake is affordable

    look around cedar creek lake and lake livingston. both have a lot of bluecats and are pretty good areas.

    I would check out Amistad. But I like West TX. Also maybe Choke Canyon. I can't think of anything really wrong with Ivie.

    Richland Chambers has it all. There are tons of blues, not to mention all the yellow cats, and the prices have not gone sky-high. I have fished all the lakes mentioned in this thread, and Richland Chambers would be my pick hands down. Catfishjon

    Hey if I could have a house I would love to have it either on yatesville or kentucky lake its where I have my best luck at while fishing, be good to be able to live on the lake and fish anytime that you wanted too.
