Lake Fork Anglers Results From June 2

We probably shouldn't have launched. The forecast was for a big bad front with high winds and lightning. Fished for about 30 minutes within sight of the ramp and it came in with a big blow and some lightning. But since the winds were so strong pulling the aluminum boat on the 154 ramp was not going to happen so we beached the boat. And then the wind direction changed and started pushing water over the stern. Not a happy situation to do to two experienced boaters.

The worst part for me is drying out all of my baits and tackle and getting the sand out of my Metaniums. For the boater maybe a call to the insurance company.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 22)

GOOD. Water Stained; 75 degrees; 5.99 feet low. The crappie bite on Lake Fork has been just a little bit finicky this past week. Best depths have been 13-23 feet with fish in brush and suspended on laydowns and trees, or holding on the bottom of underwater bridges and road beds. Minnows are still the go to bait and the smaller the minnows the better for finicky fish. Same goes for your hand ties and soft plastics. Downsizing can make the difference between a slow day and a stellar day in the heat of the summer. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service. Bass are good with 3/4 ounce shaky heads or football jigs in green pumpkin and orange or June bug in 14-25 feet of water off drop-offs or channel swings. Carolina rigs are good in the same areas with a 10 inch blue fleck or LFT ring fry in bluegill color good in 15-25 feet of water. Deep crankbaits are decent over long points and channel swings. DD -22 in chartreuse and blue, TW Ghost chartreuse and blue good over 18-23 feet. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell and Jason Hoffman, Lake Fork Pro.
