Lake Fork Anglers Results From April 21

This tournament emulates the Major League Fishing format where every fish you catch counts. Today a pair of our anglers met those requirements and excelled. Not fishing as a team but still sharing water and baits Randy Bunch (boater) and Scott Powell (co-angler) literally blew the doors off of our MLF stats.
With a 3+ LB. average the two caught 36 bass for 115.47 LBS. Randy's lunker was a 7.41 and Scotts was a 5.08. Oh, did I say they were all caught on a 1.5 square bills? Considering the forecast was for 18-36 MPH, but it turned out to be under 10 for a while and then picked up to about 15 it was not a bad day for most.

It was amazing the number of 20+ inch fish that were caught today.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...

Lake Fork

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.
