Customer Comments on Google Reviews:

"Greg is very knowledgeable with the fishing on lake fork and is extremely patient with anglers of all skill levels. what makes F.O.B. Even better is they have a beautiful cabin for rent on the lake making this service a one stop shop. There is nothing better than waking up and walking straight out to get on the boat! I would recommend this guide service to anyone and will definitely be back!"

"Caught the fish of a lifetime with Greg - 12.85 lbs. Incredible! Greg is a great guide and super knowledgeable. Highly recommend."

"When you're doing what you love, it doesn't feel like work.
It was clear from the moment we got on the boat that Greg wasn't just punching a clock. He loves fishing, he loves teaching new tricks to people who think they're already good at fishing, and he gets excited for every fish that comes on the boat like he caught it himself.
I'll definitely be back for more. In the meantime, I'm singing Greg's praises to anyone headed to Lake Fork."

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 12)

GOOD. Water Stained; 76 degrees; 0.36 feet above pool. Bass fishing has been slower this week than last week. Topwaters frogs, Yellow Magics, and spook type baits are fair in and around flooded grass or weeds. Texas rigs and shaky heads flipped at the edge of grass in 2-5 feet are good with creature type baits and beavers. Chatterbaits are good also in front of the shallow grass. Sunny days you can catch fish out to the first break line. Cloudy days fish are best to fish tight to the grass edges. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Black bass are good morning and evening with top water frog patterns. Switching mid morning to noon streamers in shad and bream patterns. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Lake Fork crappie fishing is getting red hot like the weather this week. Really seeing the black crappie load up in big numbers on lay downs, under docks and on other structures they like in the summer months. Look for those black crappie in 14-22 feet of water mostly. We also are seeing the white crappie loading up on brush piles and those summer time trees they like. Best depths for the white crappie have been 18-26 feet. We are still catching good numbers of crappie on small hand tied jigs and I’m sure small plastics will work as well. Did see some fish on brush piles the last few days that minnows may help with. The channel catfishing is excellent as it always is on Lake Fork. Bait you a hole near timber in 18-25 feet close to a creek channel. Use cattle cubes or sour grain to attract and hold those fish. Trees that have overnight roosting birds are a great place to make your hole. Use any prepared catfish bait of choice to load the boat once you get the fish loading up. You can still find some spawning catfish up shallow around all the new flooded grass, brush or rocks. Lake Fork catfishing continues to be superb on baited holes around roosting trees. Catfish are good in 13-25 feet with prepared bait. You can also bait holes w
