Lake Fork Angler Results From November 11

COLD FRONTS sure give us a pause when it comes to fishing success. Ole Mother nature did a shutdown on most of the field. But as usual there are always a few that catchem. Looking at the number of bass caught you can see what the cold front did. Only four limits in the whole club. Have you ever wondered why that is? Well, now that I was in the group that did catch them today. I still don't know the answer except maybe the location of where I was fishing or the persistence of my boater to find pods of fish that we could catch. Unfortunately for him while I was able to squeak out a limit he only caught one keeper. This was LFA 23 of 23. New year starts in December. November is primarily made up of the MLF format semi and final championships that we call Hard Core. Which it is because getting seniors safely out on the water 50 weeks out of the year is our goal.

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



  1. First Place went to Randy Bunch of Lake Fork with 6 bass for 7.99 LB with a 2.68 LB lunker.
  2. Second Place went  to Tom Charlbois of Winona with 3 bass for 5.46 LB with a 2.61 LB lunker

We caught 49 keepers today with four anglers skunking.

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 56+ seniors (Mostly) and are very liberal on members being for off vacations and medical issues. Even though we are practicing social distancing and wearing masks, we have about 10 sitting out from Covid exposure (down from 20),

Right now we are looking for more members, both boaters and co-anglers. Boaters fish for free. For information e-mail me at [email protected] or call 903-440-2797. You can check out our website at

Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 24)

FAIR. Water lightly stained; 62-64 degrees; 2.76 feet low. Largemouth bass are fair and clinging to the same holding pattern. Bass are biting on chatterbaits in the backs of coves in 1-3 feet of water, but we should see this bite going away soon. Viper ST jigs 3-5 feet of water and one-half ounce football jigs in 8-10 feet of water on drop-offs. Suspending jerkbaits around wood in 5-7 feet has brought several catches. Catfish are excellent on self-baited holes in 20-35 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guides Jason Hoffman and Marc Mitchell. Crappie are good chasing the shad to warmer water. Catches coming in 26-42 feet of water from the main creek and secondary channels close or adjacent to timber using minnows and soft plastics. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
