I am finally back to fishing full-time after taking a family vacation. I have fished both Monticello and Fork in the past few days. I fished lake Monticello today and had the best day I have had in a while. We caught a lot of fish and none were under 3 pounds. We had a couple in the 6 to 7 pound range - not giants, but good quality females. I expect to see a lot of 8 pounders there soon. Last year, we got quite a few in the last couple of weeks of February; and they seem to be starting their spawn much earlier this year. The water levels on Fork and Monticello are just the opposite of last year. The water is down a couple of feet on Monticello, while Fork is full. Last year, it was Fork that was low and Monticello was full.
I have been having tough days on Fork lately. I like to think I have just been hitting the wrong days, because when I hear good reports, they are on days that I didn't fish. I have been catching a few fish when I have gone, but I have had to work very hard for every bite. Mornings and evenings are definitely best for the shallow bites. I haven't even tried for a deep bite, but I'm certain it would be more productive during the middle of the day than the shallow bite. But I believe the shallow fish are usually bigger this time of the year, so I haven't taken the time to graph fish and re-rig my poles.

I am not going to report on specific lures and patterns, because it would be redundant and I couldn't possibly report it as accurately as the Basslog. The Basslog is a community log for conditions, lures, and locations for bass that were actually caught. I now log all my fish in the Basslog. Go to to see the first database driven fishing report of its kind. It tells you top lures, structures, solunar information, summaries, and even a recommended gameplan for the day.

If you would like to book a trip, you can see my available dates and reserve your trip online at
At the time of this writing, I only have 4 open dates in March. So, you should book ASAP if you want a spring date. I do have other competent licensed guides that I work with that are available. Their availability is also listed at the link above.

Thank you Lord for my family and the waters I get to fish
