Lake Fork Anglers Results From March 31




The day started out pretty cold but with light winds and transitioned into a total blowout with winds pretty steady at 30, Today was different because it is a 5th Thursday special. And this format was ONE fish. Your biggest.

So, one would think with the water temps at about 60-63 the "ladies" would be headed to the bank. That really didn't happen for most of us. Even catching a suitor (male bass) was difficult for most today.

One bass over 10" is all you need. Slots included. Paying 4 places on each category.

 

Boaters

  1. First place Dennis Bubinas of Lake Fork with a 6.89 LB Lunker caught on a chatter bait.

  1. First Place Gary Gilmore of Ennis with a 3.95 LB

  4. Fourth Place Bruce Allen of Lake Fork with a 1.87 LB caught on a dinger.
  5. Fifth Place Alf Tuggle of Scroggins with a 1.49 LB.

 

So, we didn't write down any fish except to step up in weight. With the wind we still had 8 members zero.

The LFA fishes 50 Thursdays a year, except for bad weather issues. We are currently looking for new co-anglers. You get to fish with experienced boaters in a friendly atmosphere while sharing techniques, baits and spots for the benefit of all. E-mail Bruce at [email protected] for info on joining.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Feb. 1)

FAIR. Water Stained; 56-59 degrees; 5.47 feet below pool. Fork had a warmer early week but dropped off in temperature and so the bite went with it for the most part. The shallow fish were on spinnerbaits and chatterbaits early in the week in 3-5 feet of water. Texas rigs and Viper XP jigs were doing good on docks with brush in 4-7 feet of water. Black and blue and green pumpkin were the best colors. Still had a few catches on squarebills in red and orange in 4-6 feet along creeks, but with the weather getting colder that should drop-off. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Black bass are beginning the early stages of pre-spawn. Try slow moving suspending streamers and sculpin patterns in 5-7 feet of water. Crappie will be moving shallow in the next few weeks. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Crappie are really good around deep main lake timber in 38-56 feet along creek channels. Fish have been a little more scattered the past week, so it is necessary to cover more water to catch limits. Seeing big white crappie mixed in with lots of smaller black crappie. Minnows will work very well and small soft plastics and hand ties are working well. Best colors for my boat have been purple and chartreuse. Getting good reports of brush pile fish biting as in 20-30 feet. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins’ Guide Service.
