Bring the kids and enjoy Uncle Rick’s hospitality! We welcome you to bring the cooler, snacks and spend the day or night with us.

Here is what gameandfishmag.com has to say about Uncle Rick’s:

“Duck Cove Fishing Barge has long been one of my favorite spots for catching winter crappie; it’s at the north end of the lake, a little over an hour’s drive from Dallas.

Owner Randy Gay feels that we’re in prime time for catching big baskets of barn-door crappie. “We’re open seven days a week during the winter and have a nice little cafe beside the fishing barge where we serve breakfast and lunch,” he stated. “We usually have a couple of briskets on the smoker.”

One of the largest indoor fishing spots in the region, the 99-foot barge annually attracts fishermen who pull their RVs to the marina to enjoy a combination of camping and fishing for a few days. Make reservations for RV spots early, because this place gets really busy in winter.”

Although the review is a little outdated, it is spot on about our indoor fishing barge. Here is a larger photo:
