    Default East Texas Drag Boats

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if there were any flat bottoms in the Madisonville, Conroe, Texas area. I will be moving there in a few weeks and know nothing about the area. What lakes, coves, ramps to use, or even lake regulations. I would also like to pick someone's brain on insurance for boats in Texas. I want some but it has been a bit difficult. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Brazos river rat, I live in Lewisville at the moment. Dallas is only a couple hours but I have spent some time on the lakes up here and never seen even a single jet. Didn't think there were any around but didn't know why. Nice cole by the way. My last boat was a tr-2 and it was dream.

    Several of the Conroe area guys are posting in this thread.

    Plenty of jets and v-drives around DFW as well. Like Billy already said check out THB. Come out to Tawakoni this weekend. If you are in Lewisville it's only about and hour and a half from you. I think Billy's estimate is a little conservative on the number of boats. There are boats coming from as far away as the Texas cost all the way up to MO. It would be a good chance for you to meet some of the guys from the Conroe area. I believe there is about 8 or 10 coming up from around there.

    EO is hosting an event at Joe Pool on the 29th. There will be a big crowd there as well. That is only about an hour from you.

    Thanks guys. Unfortunately my plate is too full until after the move. I would sure like to make both. Maybe this Saturday I can come out late. Maybe I can announce a last run day down toward my area and get some of these guys out before we put them up. You guys are great! Keep the info coming.
