David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report 02/04/05

Hello from Lake Fork, Texas!

This past week the weather has been cold and wet. The fishing has been slow for numbers but the size of the bass we are catching make up for the numbers. In the last two days all of our fish have come on a ¾ ounce spinner bait, chartreuse and white with a Colorado willow leaf nickel and gold blades. We have also produced using a ¾ ounce Rat-L Trap, red with a chartreuse belly. The best depth has been 5-10 feet of water on the edge of the grass, and that is the KEY! The greener the grass you find close to deep water, the more productive it will be.
Yesterday we boated eleven bass with our largest weighing 9lb.3oz. This bass came on a spinner bait slow rolling it on the outside edge of the grass in 10 feet of water.
Good areas for me right now have been Pinson Bay, Big Mustang and White Oak Branch. The bass are really starting to move in and the lake is in great shape. I think February is going to produce a lot of big fish. It is a great month on Lake Fork because the bass are moving into a pre-spawn pattern and feeding up before they get on the beds. There is also very little boat traffic on the lake right now and it really is one of the best months to catch a trophy bass on Lake Fork.
The weather can be miserable but the rewards can be big. Don’t let a cold rainy day keep you off of the lake!

The water temp right now at mid day is 50 degrees. The lake is at normal level and in good shape. The grass in the above areas is in real good shape, just really healthy.
Right now through April gives you the optimum conditions to catch your trophy bass. Spring dates are booking fast. If you would like to book a guide trip you can reach me at (903) 629-3683 or check out my web site at www.lakeforktexasbigbass.com . Until next time.

Good Fishing!

Great report David... Thanks for keeping us updated. I hope to make it out to the lake in the next couple of days for some bass fishing.
Thank you Lord for my family and the waters I get to fish

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report
Week Of 8/21/05

The fishing this week has been good. The early morning bite has been good for about an hour and a half each morning. A shad colored Pop-R has worked best for me. This top water action has been on main lake points in 15-25 ft. of water where the bass are chasing the shad to the top. After these bass go down we have been using a ¼ ounce Jig Head with a smoking shad colored Fluke. This works great to catch the bass that are suspended. At mid-day we are switching to a Carolina Rig working the edges of the deeper grass lines and the main humps and road beds. Right now I am using a 1 ounce weight with a 3 ft. leader and a watermelon seed Fluke.
With the above patterns we are averaging 25-30 bass a day.. The wind is important for this middle of the day bite. If there is no wind and the lake is slick, the bite gets tough and they are hard to catch.

I am now booking fall and spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates! Call 903-629-5085 or check out my website at www.lakeforktexasfishingreports.com. Until next time.

Good Fishing!
David Vance
