Trophy bass fishing on world famous Lake Fork

Fishing Improves as Temperatures Drop on Lake Fork, 10/15/14

We had some good trips this week and a few big fish. Fishing is still fairly tough right now, however I expect it to pick back up soon, now that we are getting consistent cooler weather. We are approaching my favorite time of year; cold weather, less crowds, and big fish. Many anglers opt for hunting instead of fishing this time of year, and that is just fine with me because some of the biggest fish of the year are caught during late fall. Customers often look surprised when I tell them how much I like fishing in the winter, but it is truly the season I look forward to the most.

I predict this winter will be the best yet for big bass. Right now Lake Fork is not the lake to go to for numbers, but we still have a good population of 8lb plus fish. We will be targeting the bigger fish for sure, and I have the tools in my boat to catch them. I’m really excited about some prototype swimbaits I’m working with that no one else has. They’re already proving to be effective, and will only work better in the cooler months to come.

I look for fishing to get good over the next few weeks. Here are some pictures from this past week. We had some good trips and happy customers with personal bests. November, December, and January dates are filling up fast. If you are serious about catching big fish, contact me and get on the books.
