Fishing Report from TPWD (May 25)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.58 feet low. Bass are good on windy points and secondary points using topwaters with white bellies as well as spinnerbaits. Carolina rigs with 10 inch blue fleck power worms and ring fry’s in chart pepper are good on points and ridges in 5-12 feet of water. Strike King XD 5 in shad patterns are working mid range depth in 7-10 feet in the timber near channels and points. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro. The crappie bite on Lake Fork is heating up more than the temperature right now. Post spawn fish are stacking up on timber, lay downs and brush this week in big numbers. They are hungry and will bite almost anything you drop on them. Minnows are still the best producer with hand tied jigs a close second. Best depths seem to be 10-23 feet of water. The next few months are the best months to load the boat with good eater sized crappie. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
