Lake Fork Anglers Results From April 14

Is it ever going to be warm in the morning? Much like 2-4 weeks ago it was still Brrrr this morning and but a little lighter.  Is Dennis Bubinas ever going to come in second? Man is that guy on fire.

The lake is still down about 6', but if you are careful and follow your trails if local or stay near the marked boat lanes you should be OK.

With today's full moon there are some bass on beds. Water temps today were between 65 and 67. I'd say since many of the fish that didn't get to spawn in February and March due to the unseasonable cold water will be catching up this week and again on the new moon (in 15.9 days) later this month.

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



  1. First Place went to Dennis Bubinas of Lake Fork with 10 bass for 23.39 LB with the 7.68 LB boater lunker on a white chatter bait.
  2. Second Place went to Brian Malchar of Lake Fork with 4 bass for 14.85 with a 7.41 LB lunker.

Fishing Report from TPWD (May 18)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.46 feet low. The crappie bite on Lake Fork is heating up more than the temperature right now. Post spawn fish are stacking up on timber, lay downs and brush this week in big numbers. They are hungry and will bite almost anything you drop on them. Minnows are still the best producer with hand tied jigs a close second. Best depths seem to be 10-23 feet of water. The next few months are the best months to load the boat with good eater sized crappie. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Bass are good with an early morning topwater bite on points. Shad patterned spinnerbaits are working well in 1-4 feet of water on windy points and banks. Carolina rigs are very good on main lake points and secondary points. Lizards are good in 4-10 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
