Lake Fork bass and crappie fishing with Doug Shampine

Planning your Lake Fork bass and crappie fishing trip for this coming fall or 2018? Lake is in great shape and the bass and crappie are biting and will improve as we get cooler weather. And its not too early to book your 2018 Lake Fork bass and crappie fishing trip to get your date you want to fish. The last two weeks of March and the first 2-3 weeks of April and prime time Lake Fork bass and crappie fishing dates and they book up early. Need to have your date in the books by Christmas or early Jan at the latest to get your prime time dates. The bass are chasing shad in the shallow areas where you find grass and yes there is some along with flooded vegetation. Bait fish are small so use a smaller bait. I have been using a Carolina rig on secondary points where a creek comes close to the point. I am using a speed craw in watermelon red and green pumpkin and working it slow. Bite has been very light. I al also using a texas rigged black trick worm using a 1/8 th oz bullet wright to fish the flooded vegetation. Surface temp is 77 degrees and we have some hotter weather coming so it will get back into the lower 80’s in couple of days. When I see the bass schooling I also have a KVD square bill crank bait handy in shad color. A chrome rattle trap will also catch those schooling bass. The crappie fishing has been very good in my brush piles. Minnows and a chartreuse jig has been catching good numbers of crappie in 22-26 feet of water. The fall crappie fishing will even get better in October and November so text or call 940-902-3855 for my open dates and we will set up your trip. I furnish everything for your trip just come get in the boat and go fishing. I can handle 4 adults on my boat for your trip. #lakeforktrophybass #lakeforkbassfishinggujides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakeforkcrappiefishingguides #lakeforkcrappieguides
