Jason Hoffman - Lake Fork Guide

This listing is no longer active. Please click here to view all the Lake Fork recreation listings.

Lake Fork has many guides, and I will work hard to earn and keep your business. Customer satisfaction is, and always will be, my number one priority. By the end of your trip, I want you to feel like you got more than your money's worth.

Whether you are looking to catch that trophy bass of a lifetime, want to learn a new technique, or just have fun catching lots of fish on Lake Fork, I will do everything I can to make your trip a success.
I highly recommend that you talk with any guide you are considering hiring for your trip to Lake Fork. There are many good fishermen on Lake Fork, but being a good fisherman doesn't necessarily make you a good guide. A good guide is a good teacher, communicator, and fisherman. If you will talk with a few of us before you make your decision, it will help you make the right choice for you.

I would love the opportunity to be your guide on Lake Fork. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.

Thank you for your interest in Jason Hoffman's Lake Fork Guide Service. I hope to hear from you soon.

Lake Fork Guide Recommendation... Here is my choice... (November 27, 2013)

I thought I would share my recommendation and day on the water with Jason Hoffman and my 9 year old son.

First off, I'm a simple guy. I break people into two categories, guys that give a dang and guys that don't. Jason Hoffman gives a dang and it showed before, during, and after our trip.

Prior to our trip, I explained to Jason I didn't really care if I fished that much, but was hoping my son could fish and I could learn more about using electronics. First off, Jason was awesome with my son. While my son does well casting on his own, it was freezing and we were throwing big baits and it was obvious that my boy was not comfortable casting on his own. Jason made every single cast for my kid. At one point, he had two rods going at the same time. Jason was all over that boat, whether he was unhooking fish, retying baits, or getting us ready for the next stop. Jason works his tail off to put you on fish and make sure you have a fun trip.

As we ended the day, I ended up giving him everything I had in my wallet, lol. I gave him well over the standard guide fee and well over the typical tip amount (if there is one). I gave him everything I had because I felt that he gave me and my son everything he had. I've been on other guide trips, where the guide is watching the clock or talking on the phone, or bad mouthing other guides on the lake. This will not happen on your trip with Jason. As Jason pulled out of the parking lot, my boy said, "that guy was a beast".

Hey Jason, we really appreciate the effort.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Mar. 15)

GOOD. Water Stained; 63 degrees; 1.69 feet below pool. Bass are good on topwater frogs in the flooded grass. Flukes and senkos have been really good along the edge of the flooded grass in 2-4 feet. Darker colors are best such as black and blue and June bug. Texas rigs are good with beaver type baits in black and blue along the edge of the grass and some stumps 2-4 feet. Main lake points with spinnerbaits are good on windy points. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Cooler weather is affecting the movement of the black bass, as the water cools the females are not committing to the beds but, as the water warms activity increases. Be ready with a slow subsurface presentation in 3-4 feet or weedless topwater in flooded grass. Crappie are beginning to move towards the banks, try small bead heads fished slowly 3-4 feet. Carp and gar are spawning in shallow water. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork is getting really hot. Seeing great numbers and lots of big fish each day. The fish are making huge moves shallow this week and will for the next month. Areas in 2-13 feet are finally beginning to see more fish that are spawning. The 14-32 feet staging areas are also still loaded with fish and reloading daily now. Seeing lots of fish roaming in open water but the best luck is still coming on fish on timber or brush. Small hand tied jigs in chartreuse or orange are getting crushed right now, and you can still catch fish well on soft plastics and minnows. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins’ Guide Service.
