Lake Fork Anglers Results From September 8

Well, the weather was great. Cool this morning with light winds. Usually the story is about the "Haves" and have nots. Today it is sorta turned upside down.

But the fishing really was bad except for two nice giants.

All fish 10" and up count. Only their best five count. Today's tournament was # 19 for the five fish limit.



  1. 1st Bill Ailes of Sulphur Springs with 2 bass for 13.15 LB with the boater lunker of 8.38 LB.
  2. 2nd Rudy Hall of Mineola with 1 bass for 7.41 LB.
  3. 3rd John Berech of Garland with 3 bass for 6.19 LB with a lunker of 3.16 LB.

20 bass were caught, and 8 anglers were skunked again. Looking at last week LFA results these really really suck. I'd have this report donw sooner if I could keep our new kitten off of the keyboard.

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.
