"Just wanted to send you the pictures of our night fishing trip Aug. 9th, 2011... IT WAS ONE AWESOME FISHING TRIP!!!!!!!!!!!!! I caught the biggest bass of my life... thanks for putting me on the fish.... would recommend you to anyone wanting to go bass fishing at Lake Fork... Hoping I can come back down next spring."

"I just got back home and wanted to take a minute to tell you what a truly good time I had fishing with you today. ... People all have different ideas about using guides. Obviously, they have never fished with you or they would not go it alone I enjoyed the fishing, the conversation, the instruction, and the fishing stories - I guess you would just call it a good day."

"I just wanted to take the time and thank you for such a great fishing experience. My brother and I had the times of our lives. You are a really nice guy, easy to get a long with and have a great knowledge of Lake Fork fishing--the recipe for a wonderful time and experience. Thank you so much for the trip of a life time. "

" I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know what a great time we had out there with you. I am hoping to get back out to see you at least once or twice before the end of the year and go get me ?the one that got away?. I will carry a vendetta for that fish to my grave! Thanks again, the day was a great one for John and myself and we appreciated your expertise, humor, and time."

Lake Fork

Fishing Report from TPWD (Apr. 17)

GOOD. Water Stained; 60 degrees; 0.20 feet above pool. Fork has been good with fish in just about every stage of the spawn. Lots of fish are shallow in 1-4 feet with Texas rigs, yum dingers, chatterbaits, flukes, and swim jigs. Offshore bass are good on humps and points in 5-7 feet of water with Carolina rigs with light weights, mid-running crankbaits, and shaky heads. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Changing weather means changing bite. First phase bass spawners are now in a post spawn pattern and aggressive. Frog pattern topwaters are excellent in the grass and brush. Casting into the pockets and letting the frog sit for a few seconds is a good idea. Crappies are shallow, small fish patterns like wooly buggers are a good bet. Bream are beginning to make themselves known in the shallows, wooly buggers and small poppers should bring a strike. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Crappie are great with some pre-spawn fish, some fish actively spawning and some post spawn. Fish can be found in a few feet of water to 30 feet of water. All crappie on Lake Fork do not go shallow to spawn and we catch fish in 18-20 feet that are spawning on timber. You can also find some fish on brush, lay downs, bridges and docks. It is a very versatile time to catch crappie with multiple patterns. Minnows will work great right now but any crappie baits will catch fish. Try small hand tied jigs and soft plastics. Catfishing is excellent right now on Lake Fork around timber in 12-20 feet. Still seeing loads of fish around roosting trees. Lots of birds in the shallow areas close to the bank in the early mornings chasing shad spawns. The catfish are also up there feeding on shad as well. Use any prepared catfish baits or cut shad on baited holes in the timber. Use a cork with anything a catfish will bite up shallow. Minnows and cut shad will work great on this shallow fish.
