Lake Fork Anglers Results From April 14

Is it ever going to be warm in the morning? Much like 2-4 weeks ago it was still Brrrr this morning and but a little lighter.  Is Dennis Bubinas ever going to come in second? Man is that guy on fire.

The lake is still down about 6', but if you are careful and follow your trails if local or stay near the marked boat lanes you should be OK.

With today's full moon there are some bass on beds. Water temps today were between 65 and 67. I'd say since many of the fish that didn't get to spawn in February and March due to the unseasonable cold water will be catching up this week and again on the new moon (in 15.9 days) later this month.

All fish 10" and up are keepers. Only the best 5 count.



  1. First Place went to Dennis Bubinas of Lake Fork with 10 bass for 23.39 LB with the 7.68 LB boater lunker on a white chatter bait.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 22)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.99 feet low. The crappie bite on Lake Fork has been just a little bit finicky this past week. Best depths have been 13-23 feet with fish in brush and suspended on laydowns and trees, or holding on the bottom of underwater bridges and road beds. Minnows are still the go to bait and the smaller the minnows the better for finicky fish. Same goes for your hand ties and soft plastics. Downsizing can make the difference between a slow day and a stellar day in the heat of the summer. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Bass are good with 3/4 ounce shaky heads or football jigs in green pumpkin and orange or June bug in 14-25 feet of water off drop-offs or channel swings. Carolina rigs are good in the same areas with a 10 inch blue fleck or LFT ring fry in bluegill color good in 15-25 feet of water. Deep crankbaits are decent over long points and channel swings. DD -22 in chartreuse and blue, TW Ghost chartreuse and blue good over 18-23 feet. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
