Lake Fork fishing with Doug Shampine DSP Guide Service

WOW Lake Fork fishing is just about to get real good!!! Big bass are starting to move shallow, crappie are moving shallow and sand bass are moving into the creeks. I love April fishing and if you are on the books to get in on some great fishing you are missing out. Call or text me 940-902-3855 for open dates and get your trip booked. #lakeforkfishing  The male bass are shallow almost everywhere on the lake. Its pretty easy to catch 20 or so males mixed in with a few of the smaller females a day. But in the last couple of days I am seeing the bigger females move into the shallow spawning areas. Lake Fork fishing will heat up as we are  headed towards the full moon. So you are not too late to get in on the lake Fork fishing action.  I am currently catching bass on Carolina rig baby brush hogs in green pumpkin, senko type baits in green pumpkin, Texas rigged lizards, and a few on top water baits like the yellow magic. Bass are coming in 5 foot of water or less. Still need to fish slow and that is the key. Lake level is a little over 2 feet low and there are only a few places with vegetation in the water. New lily pads are starting to appear. Those areas is where I am throwing top water baits. The crappie are also showing up on the banks and starting to spawn in shallow water. Check out the north end of the lake for this action in 1-3 foot of water.#lakeforkcrappieguides  Best method is a bobber and about a foot so of line with a jig or minnow. Cast to the bank and very slowly reel it back to the boas. Look for brush in the water and fish around it and the crappie will be there. I start guiding for crappie in May so its time to book your trip for crappie now, as the May/June dates go fast so call or text and get in on the outstanding Lake Fork fishing. #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakeforkguide #lakeforkcrappiefishing
