Lake Fork fishing with Doug Shampine-DSP Guide Service

Lake Fork fishing has improved a little as the warmer weather hangs around. Looks like the next 10 days has no freezes showing up which is good. Just letting everyone know as the warm weather stays in place the bookings of the prime fishing dates will go away fast along with the lodging on the lake. So this past week, the bass were biting the black/blue jig, 1/2 oz with a #11 black pork trailer in 4-8 feet or water. They were also biting a suspending jerk bait around trees in 6-8 foot of water. So this is a added bait that now the bass are looking at and biting. If you can find vegetation, the outside edges will hold bass as the water temperatures warm. A super fluke or a weightless stick bait in green pumpkin, black, or watermelon red is working by throwing to the edges and letting it set. Fish that bait very slow. As we get into mid February and later, the Lake Fork fishing should improve. If you are a crappie fisherman, they have been in deeper water and now are starting to move. If you can find them, they are biting on minnows or jigs (black/grey) in 24-26 feet. Keep an eye on the main lake bridges, especially the 515 east, 2946 and the 514 bridges. They will start getting hot as the crappie move towards the spawning areas. Same for the sand bass looking for the creek channels to spawn around. I furnish every thing for your trip just come get in my boat and go fishing. I fish out of a Legend bass boat and a 22 foot bay boat for the larger group crappie trips. So get your Lake Fork fishing trip on the books and have a great day on the water. Lake Fork fishing is a great way to treat your clients to a day on the water if you are a business owner. #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakeforkcrappieguides
