Chuck ‘Smitty’ Smith is an expert fishing guide on Lake O the Pines ( some say Lake Of The Pines ). He has been crappie fishing on this East Texas Lake ever since he was a kid and know it intimately. Chuck learned all the bass fishing tricks peculiar to this lake and moved into pro status with tournament angling with BassMaster Weekend Series now called the ABA (American Bass Association).
Lake O’ the Pines includes about 18,700 acres of water and 9,000 acres of land located in the piney woods of Northeast Texas. The lake is located partially in Marion, Harrison, Upshur, Morris and Camp Counties. Recreation opportunities are numerous with camping, boating, fishing, hunting, watchable wildlife, and bird watching, including wintering bald eagles. Other local attractions include antique shopping, Mardi Gras Upriver, the Annual Historic Pilgrimage, and Christmas Candlelight Tour in Jefferson, TX. Local attractions also include Stagecoach days, a Fire Ant Festival and Christmas lights in Marshall, TX, along with Texas Wildflower Trail routes along some area roads.
