Lake Fork Fishing

Lake Fork fishing with Doug Shampine DSP Guide

This is the time of year Lake Fork fishing gets good. This is an update of that the bass, crappie and sand bass are doing if you are coming to do some Lake Fork fishing. Bass are about done with their spawn and are moving to the main lake points. Top water baits like a spook or yellow magic will catch the bass as they move back to deeper water. Also try a carolina rig using a watermelon red baby brush hog. Fish the main lake points close to the spawning areas or where a creek swings into the spawning area. Other fisherman that wants to try Lake Fork fishing want to take a mess of fish home, so check out the crappie or sand bass. Most of the crappie have spawned and are moving back to deeper water. Brush piles will be producing slabs using minnows or jigs. Best color of jig has been Garland blue thunder. Sand bass are now done with their spawn and are chasing shad on main lake points where there is a little wind. Throw a square bill crank bait in shad color and hang on. I am guiding for all three, bass, crappie and sand bass. So if you are going to try Lake Fork fishing give me a call. For the bigger trips (up to 5 adults) I use a 22 foot bay boat. For the bass trips or small numbers I use my Legend bass boat. Either way I furnish everything for your Lake Fork fishing trip including the bottled water. So give me a call or text 940-902-3855 to book a trip in June or July or this fall. Crappie and bass fishing is also very good in the fall. Or email me at for open dates. #lakeforktrophybass #lakefork #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkbassguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkcrappieguides
