Lake Fork Fishing Report

Lake Fork fishing with guide Doug Shampine

Lake Fork fishing is starting to heat up especially on the upper ends of the lake. The shallow bite has been very good and I am catching 20-30 bass a day. The lower ends of the lake are slower but you can find schooling bass in the clear water. They are moving around following the big shad schools. Best baits for those bass will be a spook, yellow magic or a 1/4 oz chrome rattle trap. I also like to use a 2 inch swim bait in white or shad color. Storm makes a good one.  As for the shallow bite, I am catching bass on frogs (white) chrome 1/4 oz rattle traps, black finesse mag worms rigged with a 1/8 oz weight, or a Carolina rig using a watermelon red candy brush hog dipping the tail in chartreuse spike it. All these fish are coming in the 5 foot range or less around vegetation. There are big schools of big shad in the back of the bigger pockets and along the main lake shore line. The bass will be with them feeding as the schools come by. lake Fork fishing will continue to get better and better as the water cools off. So if you are bass fishing or crappie fishing or sand bass fishing, let me take you fishing. I furnish everything for your trip just come get in my boat and go fishing. I am booking trips for the fall and spring of 2017. The spring dates go fast, so get your date set up as soon as you can. Now is the time to really enjoy Lake Fork fishing as it gets cooler and the bite gets better. Crappie fishing right now is also good, in brush piles and around the bridges. Jigs and minnows have been the best bait for a mess of slabs. For open dates text me at 940-902-3855 and set up your Lake Fork fishing trip.   #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakefork #lakeforkcrappieguides #lakeforktrophybass
