Lake Fork Anglers Results From November 17




The weather was great. Ok so it was 33 when they started but it really didn't affect the fishing that much. Except for one angler EVERYONE ELSE struggled. Which has pretty much been the story since the end of August. I've been told that even the guides are having a hard time satisfying their customers.

They drew Section 3 for today's tournament and I'm glad it wasn't me that drew it this time.

MLF format where every bass 10" up counts including slot fish.

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.
