The Sheihing’s Story

Dwain and Shannon Sheihing moved to our beautiful and bountiful Lake Texoma from their farm on the outskirts of Austin because Austin is a crowded mess these days. Plus, they wanted to remain in Texas. The couple was like ships passing in the night due to their hectic work schedules and farm chores.

The Sheihings wanted a place where they could work and live together. They chose to buy the almost empty Gone Fishing RV Resort for that purpose. This RV park had witnessed unprofessional management for approximately the last three years, after filling up its RV sites for most of its history.

Dwain and Shannon are committed to further enhancing the resort with additional landscaping, additional rental services, and an expanded inventory of Texas-made goods. Bring your dogs.

The Sheihings came from farming stock, and they plan to continue their heritage and their love for Texas right here in Texomaland. The Sheihings have invested much love into their park’s property.

Guests can expect a warm Texomaland welcome and a rejuvenating escape. They have remodeled the park’s existing structures into beautiful laundry and shower facilities and added services like watersports rentals and an apartment.

Dwain and Shannon want to do so much more. They are not done yet!

Fishing Report from TPWD (Apr. 17)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 58 degrees; 1.53 feet below pool. Striped bass fishing is great drifting live shad around the islands or past the bridges near the rivers. Rain should finish off the spawn and look for bait on the banks with feeding fish near them. Top waters are working on sandy flats in 2-8 feet of water. Smallmouth bass are good on live shad along the bluffs on the banks in 2-4 feet of water. Also fair on spooks early and look for largemouth off the banks in 6-12 feet of water on main lake points near rocks. Catfish are fair on cut shad along the rocks in 30-45 feet of water. Drifting cut rough fish or gizzard shad in 5-10 feet of water near the river could produce a big fish after a rain with an inflow of dirty water. Crappie are good on brush piles in 12-18 feet of water on jigs using electronics to locate active fish working in and out of the brush. Look for spawners shallow with warmer temperatures in the forecast. Report by Jacob Orr, Guaranteed Guide Service Lake Texoma. Threadfin shad are spawning along the banks. Hybrid stripers are good on topwaters in the morning along rocky banks. Some days the egrets are working leading the way to fish. Some schooling activity under gulls. After the morning bite ends switch to swimbaits and Alabama rigs in 10-25 feet of water on the edges and dropoffs. This pattern should hold for the next 4-6 weeks while shad spawn near docks and banks. Report by John Blasingame, Adventure Texoma Outdoors.
