Trophy bass fishing on world famous Lake Fork

Lake Fork Report with Recent Pictures!

We’ve made some great memories here on Lake Fork over the past week! The fishing can be challenging right now, but most days our hard work has paid off. I’m not on numbers, but I am on quality. I always try to keep my customers in a position where they have a better chance at catching a trophy bass.

There have been some tough days mixed in. However, the good days are outnumbering the bad ones, and more often than not, a personal best for big bass is broken on our trip. I’ll take that, especially given how slow the fishing has been the past couple summers. This year it looks like Lake Fork is back to herself. These Florida strain bass love hot weather. Don’t think for a second that the heat shuts them down.

I’ve been catching most of my fish on a Santone football jig. I’m working offshore structure, and doing a lot of looking with my electronics. I’ve also got a little something special going that’s just for my customers for now. Of course, I’ve got all the classic summertime tools on the deck as well. Carolina rigs, deep divers, and spoons have been catching a few for me.

I’m finding them in various depths from day to day, but it’s pretty easy to figure out where they want to be. The tricky part is finding the active ones. It’s a timing deal for sure.

Lake Fork is slightly over full pool at the moment. That is great this far into the year. Things are looking good for the future. Just remember that most of the hazards are hiding below the surface right now. The water temperature is in the low 80’s.

I know there are a lot of Lake Fork guides to choose from, but if I can be of any assistance on your upcoming trip don’t hesitate to call or text me.
