Customer Feedback:
"Fished the TFF guide tourney today with the " new kid on the block" Mr Justin Margraves. I figured if he had the guts to come guide on fork then I'd give him a shot. Well, I don't think I could of made a better decision!! We had a great day for January. Ended up with 8 fish on the day, 5 biggest being 28.63 with a 8.83 over. He asked us when we were idling from the ramp if we wanted to catch fish or swing for the fences and we decided its go big or go home!! Justin was a joy to be in the boat with and opened my eyes to several tactics I'd never would have tried. All in all it was a good day with my dad and a new friend and guide Justin."

"had a great day on the water with Justin today...if i could id call in and go again tomorrow...anyone looking for a good trip should definitely give him a call"

"I would definitely recommend Justin Margraves ! He's on bigger fish at fork than pretty much all other guides. Incredible guide with ample knowledge and skills, and he just won the TFF lake fork guide tourney recently against forks best guides"

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Oct. 10)

FAIR. Water stained; 80–83 degrees; 1.71’ low. Largemouth bass are fair on plastic worms, Alabama rigs, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and topwaters. They appear to be starting the fall pattern in shallower water. This is great news for the lunker fisherman and continued reputation of producing the biggest largemouths in Texas. White and yellow bass are good on Alabama Rigs. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows in the stumps or man–made structures. Catfish are good on prepared bait and cut bait.
