10lb plus fishing Lake Fork with Doug Shampine DSP Guide Service

Planning on fishing Lake Fork soon? I can help you catch fish and make it a great fishing trip at the same time. This time of the year is weather driven so your trip can either be good or bad depending on what the weather is doing. With the warmer weather the last week or so, I have been catching some bass shallow. Black/blue jig and Sinko type baits in green pumpkin rigged with a very light bullet weight is working shallow. (2-4 feet) You must work this bait very slow. It will help if you can locate some vegetation to fish this way. But if you have been here before fishing Lake Fork can be very good especially in the afternoon. The lake came up almost a foot with the last rains and some of the main creeks are muddy. Surface temperature main lake is 51 and places like Glade are 54. But if you are planning on fishing Lake Fork this spring think about this. I have been guiding on Fork for 17 years and the best window for catching bass is the last two weeks of March, all of April and May into the first 2 weeks of June. This covers pre-spawn, spawn and post spawn (great top water fishing) But don’t wait too long to book your trip as this time period books up fast and you will want to set up your trip for fishing Lake Fork soon. I will be attending the Dallas boat show starting Feb 3rd through Feb 12. Stop by my booth #425 and book your trip as I will be booking trips at the show. I furnish everything for your trip just come get in my boat and go fishing. Crappie are still in deeper water but will be moving soon as they also think about the spawn. They will be in full swing just as the bass are in April so get your crappie trips also book as those dates also go fast. #lakeforkbassfishingguides #lakeforkfishingguides #lakeforkguides #lakeforkcrappieguides #guidesonlakefork
