Lake Fork Anglers Results From April 21

This tournament emulates the Major League Fishing format where every fish you catch counts. Today a pair of our anglers met those requirements and excelled. Not fishing as a team but still sharing water and baits Randy Bunch (boater) and Scott Powell (co-angler) literally blew the doors off of our MLF stats.
With a 3+ LB. average the two caught 36 bass for 115.47 LBS. Randy's lunker was a 7.41 and Scotts was a 5.08. Oh, did I say they were all caught on a 1.5 square bills? Considering the forecast was for 18-36 MPH, but it turned out to be under 10 for a while and then picked up to about 15 it was not a bad day for most.

It was amazing the number of 20+ inch fish that were caught today.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...

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.
