42lbs 7oz for our best five bass on Lake Fork! What an incredible day! I’ve had several great days where our top five breached 40lbs, but never in June. Fishing has been great for big fish lately, but this was an extra-special day.
You’ll see I caught a few good ones too. Don and Frank insisted I fish as well. Anytime a “sweet spot” was identified I turned around and casted the opposite direction. I only caught 4 out of the 25-30 fish for the day. Don broke his personal best twice!
Our weights were as follows (pounds/ounces): 9.4, 9.1, 8.9, 8.5, 7.4. We also had one that I caught that would’ve culled the 7.4, but probably would’ve only added a pound. We didn’t weigh that one, so I didn’t include it in the top five.
We caught almost every single fish on a Santone football jig. We caught them from 15′ deep down to 25′. If you’re coming to Lake Fork, or choosing on of the Lake Fork guides, I hope you’ll give me a call and let me help you on your upcoming trip.
Here are some of our fish from the big day.
