Lake Fork Anglers Results From July 14

At registration it was lightning off to the east. Looking at the various weather channels on our phones it appeared to be coming out of Sulphur Sporings and headed south-east. No worry for us. Our boat launched out of Popes on the west side. When we got to the FM 17 bridge it looked more like it was coming our way. We fished for 30 minutes and then decided to hole up in the boat house near the ramp.

Three hours later we finally got back to fishing.

So, while we had to wait the rest went out on the east side and got to fish most of the morning and the results showed it. And I don't believe I have seen that many 6's caught in our tournaments in quite a while.

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



  1. First Place went to Dennis Bubnas of Lake Fork with 8 bass for 18.87 LB with a 6.89 LB lunker.
  2. Second Place went to John Breech of Garland with 4 bass for 16.82 LB with the 7.68 LB boater lunker.
  3. Third Place went to Herb Powell of Lake Fork with 4 bass for 13.76 LB. with a 6.17 LB lunker.

This week we managed 60 keepers with just 2 skunks.

So, you'd like to fish at Lake Fork but don't really have the $500 for a guide. You can come and fish with us for a $20 entry fee and a $20 donation for your boater. Unless you are a boater. Annual dues are also $20. Our group of boaters will be able to put you on fish most of the time.

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

Right now, we are looking for more Boaters and Co-Anglers.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 30)

FAIR. Water Stained; 65 degrees; 5.81 feet low. The bass bite should change after the rise in water. Suspending jerkbaits are still best worked over 7-10 feet around ditches and creeks. Spinnerbaits have been good in the same areas, slowly rolled near big wood. Viper XP jigs in sourgrape, PBJ, Purple Passion, are still good on big wood near the edges of the creeks 8-10 feet. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Bass are slow on Carolina rigs, dropshots, and jigging spoons in 15-18 feet of water, and squarebill crankbaits in 3-6 feet of water. Report by Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Guide Service. Rising water level will bring feeding bass shallow. Fish newly flooded grass and timber with streamers for bass chasing shad. Some bream will be mixed in on warmer sunny days. Crappie will be moving towards wintertime schools in the open water and deep pockets, beaded woolies fished with a 5 wt rod and sinking lines. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The bite is getting better and better going into the winter months. Big crappie are beginning to show up in numbers as the water temps continue to drop into the 50s. Catches over two pounds are landed each day with some fish closer to the three pound range. Timber on flats and along the main lake creek channels in 28-50 feet all seem to be holding good fish. We are seeing a good balance of white crappie and black crappie both being caught each day. Minnows still seem to be the dominant bait, but the jig bite is coming around finally on Lake Fork. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
