I have been fishing a good mix of Monticello and Fork. The fish on Monticello haven't been feeding very well, but we did get a decent topwater bite and managed to catch a few fish on beds. Numbers have been down and not many females have been around.
Lake Fork has really been the place to be. The warm weather really got the fish turned on at Lake Fork. We had 24 fish by 2:00PM yesterday - an awesome day for February on Fork. I found 50 to 62 degree water. The warmer the water, the better the bite was on. I even saw some fish crusing around the shallows. If we had a couple more 70 degree days, the females would be starting their spawn. But, according to the forecast, that isn't going to happen.
We caught all our fish on 3 different lures - and surprisingly, not a single fish came on a lipless crankbait. 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 http://www.bassfishing.org/basslog/fishingreport.cfm 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 www.bassfishing.org/dbaccess/trips.cfm
At the time of this writing, my first available day is April 20. 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 for the bulk of March and April. Their availability is also listed at the link above.

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