Lake Fork fishing with Doug Shampine

Lake Fork fishing has been down the last week but next week with the temperatures in the low 80’s, it will pick up. I have been asked this question more times than I can count no the spawn has not happened. Yes you can find a bass here and there on a bed but for the most part not yet. So het you Lake Fork fishing trip planned and booked soon because it wont be long and they will be on beds everywhere! My best baits have been the Carolina rig baby brush hog in green pumpkin, weightless fluke in green pumpkin and the senko type baits in the same color. I have also caught a few on swim baits.  Most of my bass are coming at around 5 feet deep. Water temperature today was 62 and that is up from 58. Lake is still about 2 feet below normal. Also water still stained in the north part of the lake. So give me a call or text for open dates 940-902-3855 and lets set up your trip and catch that trophy bass. I have seen some crappie being caught shallow, and they are males. The big females are still out like the bass. Minnows have been the best bait and look for brush piles around docks. Right now they will produce the most. If you are thinking Lake Fork fishing for crappie starting in May give me a call or text and set up your trip. Dates go fast and I furnish everything for your trip. I have a 22 foot bay boat for the crappie trips and I can take up to 5 adults. So lets get your Lake Fork fishing trip in the books. A fishing trip makes a great gift with fathers day coming we can set up dad with a fishing trip. Keep in mind the best fishing is yet to come on lake Fork in April and May. #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkcrappieguides #lakeforkfishing
