Lake Fork Anglers Results From July 14

At registration it was lightning off to the east. Looking at the various weather channels on our phones it appeared to be coming out of Sulphur Sporings and headed south-east. No worry for us. Our boat launched out of Popes on the west side. When we got to the FM 17 bridge it looked more like it was coming our way. We fished for 30 minutes and then decided to hole up in the boat house near the ramp.

Three hours later we finally got back to fishing.

So, while we had to wait the rest went out on the east side and got to fish most of the morning and the results showed it. And I don't believe I have seen that many 6's caught in our tournaments in quite a while.

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



  1. First Place went to Dennis Bubnas of Lake Fork with 8 bass for 18.87 LB with a 6.89 LB lunker.
  2. Second Place went to John Breech of Garland with 4 bass for 16.82 LB with the 7.68 LB boater lunker.

This week we managed 60 keepers with just 2 skunks.

So, you'd like to fish at Lake Fork but don't really have the $500 for a guide. You can come and fish with us for a $20 entry fee and a $20 donation for your boater. Unless you are a boater. Annual dues are also $20. Our group of boaters will be able to put you on fish most of the time.

The LFA fishes every Thursday except T-Day and Christmas on 2 different formats. A 5 fish limit we call LFA and a MLF style format where every fish counts, we call Hard Core, 3 special tournaments and an end of year dinner. We are a club of 53+ seniors (Mostly) and are very liberal on members being for off vacations and medical issues.

Right now, we are looking for more Boaters and Co-Anglers.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jan. 25)

FAIR. Water Stained; 56-59 degrees; 5.47 feet below pool. Bass are more active on warmer days in the backs pockets and secondary points going into the pockets. Target the warmest pockets with chatterbaits and spinnerbaits in 2-4 feet of water. Fish are traveling in the creek towards the back on warmer days and moving outwards on cooler days . Those along the creek are best on red squarebill crankbaits in a 1.5-2.5 inch around the edges and big wood 3-6 feet of water. Texas rigs with creature type baits flipped at the big wood on creeks and ditches are good in black and blue colors and June bug in 3-6 feet of water. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Black bass are beginning the early stages of pre-spawn. Try slow moving suspending streamers and sculpin patterns in 5-7 feet of water. Crappie are deep. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Crappie are really good around deep main lake timber in 38-56 feet along creek channels. Fish have been a little more scattered the past week, so it is necessary to cover more water to catch limits. Seeing big white crappie mixed in with lots of smaller black crappie. Minnows will work very well and small soft plastics and hand ties are working well. Best colors for my boat have been purple and chartreuse. Getting good reports of brush pile fish biting as in 20-30 feet. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins’ Guide Service.
