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.

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 (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.
