Lake Fork Anglers 5 Fish Limit Results for 7.7.20

Wind, wind, wind. Which is normal and we should be used to it. The waves breaking over the back my boaters boat caused us a ten minute delay when it was time to leave to pump out all of that water. Drop shots, c-rigs, jigs and shaky heads and crankbaits won the day. Congrats to Gary Gilmore for his 9.12 LB over. Also congrats to long suffering boater Terry Thompson for catching the boater lunker and coming in much higher than usual. Terry had his grandson Grayson as a guest today. Also Greg Geisler had his son as a guest today as did Gary Pardini had his son Jason Pardini. Way to go young fellas!

We caught 115 keepers today with 4 skunks. Many of the fish were caught in deeper water than is usual for us.

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 55+ seniors (Mostly) and are very liberal on members being for off vacations and medical issues.

Right now we are looking for more co-anglers. Bring your tackle and life vest and get to go out on Lake Fork for far less than you'd pay for a guide.

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.
