Lake Fork Anglers Results From December 30




tt has been hot all week and today supposed to be in the mid 70's once again with light winds. And it was but that didn't improve the fishing in any way. Perhaps the fact that the lake is down almost 6' may have something to do with the tough fishing. Looking at the number of skunks you have to figure the water level change has the fish upset. But out of all those fishing there were only 5 limits caught. Most of the fish caught were deeper than normal in 5 to 10'.

Today is the first 5 fish limit format (known as the LFA) tournament. All fish 10" and up are keepers. Only the best 5 count.

FAIR. Water lightly stained; 51 degrees; 6.29 feet low. Bass bite is slow due to weather. Viper XP jigs in purple passion are good in 5-7 feet around creeks and big wood. Z-man chatterbaits are also working in the same areas when worked slowly. Suspending jerkbaits have some success near points in 6-8 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guides Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro. Crappie are good in 40-53 feet of water using minnows. The jig bite is nonexistent.
