James Henderson Guide Service





I would like to introduce myself and make your visit to World Famous Lake Fork the most exciting fishing experience you have ever had. I am a Full Time guide and have over 25 years of bass fishing experience in north east Texas. I was born and raised in the north east Texas area, hunting and fishing my whole life since I was old enough to walk.

My goal is to tailor a fishing adventure that lives up to your expectations and provide the fishing experience of a lifetime, whether it is to learn new techniques, catch your largest fish ever, getting ready for a tournament, or just have a fun day catching fish. My number one priority is making your trip a memorable one.

With 20 years of bass fishing experience, including 10 years of local tournament angling in north east Texas, I am a full time guide and am experienced not only on world famous Lake Fork but also lakes Bob Sandlin, Cypress Springs, and hot water lakes Welsh/Monticello (seasonal). From the novice to seasoned angler, I offer instructional trips for all levels. I only use artificial baits and all fish are C.P.R. (catch photo release), so future generations can enjoy this great sport.

Lake Fork

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 18)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.46 feet low. 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. Bass are good with an early morning topwater bite on points. Shad patterned spinnerbaits are working well in 1-4 feet of water on windy points and banks. Carolina rigs are very good on main lake points and secondary points. Lizards are good in 4-10 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
