Lake Fork Angler Results From February 10




Sure, wish we had more water, but it really did not affect the fishing today for the "haves". As opposed to the have-nots. Generally, the have nots are mostly the co-anglers and that depends on how successful their boaters are. For mid-February the weather was pretty darn good with some cloud cover starting at about 40 and rising to 70 by quitting time at 3 PM.  By the results it looks like the big girls are starting to show up. Water temps in the high 40's.

 

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

  1. First Place went to Don Overstreet of Sulphur Springs with 5 bass for 21.66 LB with a 5.49 lunker.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 1)

FAIR. Water Stained; 56-59 degrees; 5.47 feet below pool. Fork had a warmer early week but dropped off in temperature and so the bite went with it for the most part. The shallow fish were on spinnerbaits and chatterbaits early in the week in 3-5 feet of water. Texas rigs and Viper XP jigs were doing good on docks with brush in 4-7 feet of water. Black and blue and green pumpkin were the best colors. Still had a few catches on squarebills in red and orange in 4-6 feet along creeks, but with the weather getting colder that should drop-off. 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 will be moving shallow in the next few weeks. 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.
