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.
  2. Second place Terry Thompson of Sulphur Springs with a 5.08 LB
  3. Third place Curt Blount of Lake Fork with a 4.31 LB TIE
  4. Fourth place Don Overstreet of Sulphur Springs with a 4.31 LB TIE.
  5. Fifth place Randy Bunch of Lake Fork with a 4.04 LB

 

Co-Anglers

  1. First Place Gary Gilmore of Ennis with a 3.95 LB
  2. Second Place Terry Shetterly of Michigan with a 3.78 LB
  3. Third Place Rick Wright of Rowlett with a 2.31 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.

Lake Fork

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.
