Lake Fork

Water Temp.: 83 - 85
Water Clarity: Clear

If you’re looking to book a trip with me, I’m offering the following; Full day, either split into two halves one in the morning and evening, starting before sun-up or start at normal time and fish straight through, night or day. Half day, morning or evening. Any of the above are your choice, and I’ve got a group special running right now, 1 full day of fishing, 2 guides and 1 nights lodging for $600.00, groups of 4.

What difference a little rain and clouds can make! There has been a good topwater bite on Lockhart white buzz-baits early, and during the showers. Fishing flats and shore-lines with hydrilla. The deep bite (deeper than 20ft.) has slowed, moving the fish in and near the first break-line. On days where the wind has been a problem Bandit 200 series splatterbacks and white too, have made up for not being able to catch fish out deep. With the crank-baits we’re fishing the edge of grass and the break-line itself. Fishing has really been kinda funny. The fish appear to be literally everywhere, not really, but the fish are relating to banks, points, main lake shorelines with absolutely “NO” cover whatsoever, to areas with grass and “NO” stumps, and areas with nothing but trees and stumps. One thing remains consistent though, the depth of water. Keep the boat in 17 to 20 feet (casting in) of water or 10 to 14 feet (casting on both sides of the boat) or 6 to 8 feet (casting out, towards deeper water). All of these are working …well! For a bottom bite, which seems to have left me on the Carolina-rig, I’ve been able to find using a Texas-rig, go figure? For plastics on the T-rig we’re throwing a blue fleck 8” Lake Fork worm.

I’m positive that the deeper bite will return now that our cloud cover has left or is leaving. Then we’ll be back to throwing all those colors I mentioned in last weeks report.

There are new pictures to check out on my web site from this week, they’ll be on the bottom of the 2005 “Fat Girls” page, so take a look.

• If you are looking to buy a Nitro bass boat or a Nitro fish/ski boat I have Nitro gift certificates that can save you from $250.00 to $500.00. Just let me know you want or need one and I’ll see to it that I get it to you.
• My 2005 Nitro 929CDX (dual console) with a 2005 Mercury 225hp. Optimax is for sale. Boat, Motor & Trailer is in “GREAT SHAPE” and loaded with extras. Selling price is $28,900.00

If I can be of more help or assistance regarding a trip or “Bassin’ Class” please contact me at 972-636-7022 / 800-965-0350 or by e-mail at My web site, , If your club, organization or church is looking for a guest speaker I’d be happy to come just give me a call and we’ll get it on the calendar.

It’s that time of year to start looking at your calendar for guide trips for Summer. The earlier you book your date the easier it will be to get the date(s) you want. I have dates available if you’re looking for a FULL-TIME guide. Available dates for July; 21, 22, 24, 25, 26 & 27. August; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 & 31. So, should you want to become one of my many valued customers and a great group of fishermen give me a call, I’d be honored to be your guide. UNTIL NEXT TIME…GOOD LUCK & TIGHT-LINES!!!

Yes Jeff, I appreciate you providing these. Please feel free to post them in the section of "At The Ramp" if you want too instead of over here.
Thank you Lord for my family and the waters I get to fish
