Lake Fork fishing with Doug Shampine DSP Guide Service

Lake Fork fishing this week has been good for the smaller bass. Water temperature still mid to upper 70’s and the lake level is about 2.5 below normal. We are needing the daily temperatures to drop in order to cool off the lake and get the bigger bass to move shallow. I am catching bass along the grass you can find growing in some areas of the lake. A texas rigged baby brush hog in watermelon red is working, along with a 1/8 bullet weight on a black finesse worm. Also try a chrome 1/4 oz rattle trap along the grass edges. The crappie are biting in my brush piles on minnows and jigs in chartreuse pepper, or blue ice and add a crappie nibblet    in white color to the jig.  Best depth has been 20-24 feet. Now catching more keeper crappie than short ones. Sand bass are schooling along with the smaller bass and you can catch a lot of small ones on chrome trap. Bigger ones have not shown up yet. So all in all the Lake Fork fishing has been good but the bigger fish have not shown up yet, but they will.  If you are planning a Lake Fork fishing trip this fall or next spring its time to get it on the books. Dates go fast especially aster Christmas is over and people start thinking spring. Keep in mink, a Lake Fork fishing trip makes a great gift. I can send you a gift certificate to give to that special person and we will leave the date of the trip TBD. Once they get the gift they can call and set up their date. So call or text me for details, 940-902-3855. If you are thinking a 2017 Lake Fork fishing trip fishing for crappie, I start crappie guiding in May. So make your plans now and get your date set up. I furnish everything for your trip just come get in the boat and go fishing.  #lakeforktrophybass #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkcrappieguides #lakeforkfishing #lakeforkbassfishingreports
