Lake Fork

Water Temp: 83 - 87
Water Clarity: Clear

Well, only two tournaments left. One being the Berkley Tournament and the other the Annual McDonald’s Splash. Take a look at the “Fat Girls” page for 2006 on

Fishing on Lake Fork has been very consistent as long as you’re throwing what the fish want. This summer has me really grasping at straws and reading in my log a whole bunch. It seems that my log has helped me find fish more than ever for this time of year. The very best bite I have been able to find has been on several different things and will produce decent to good numbers as well as size of fish. However, at the same time the deep bite seems to have escaped me. Up shallow we’re catching fish on chartreuse/white spinnerbaits, white & splatterback Bandit 100 & 200 crankbaits and then fishing light-line finesse’ techniques. But as high as the wind has been as of late fishing 8lb. test has been extremely difficult to do. There are other topwaters working as well; zara spooks, pop’rs and buzz-baits. Windy banks or banks with as much ripple as you can find will be best for these. Then once your topwater bite is over make sure to have a 1/4oz. chrome/black Rat-L-Trap on for the schooling fish (or a pop’r) and a 200 series Bandit splatterback is catching some good fish too!

As for depths of where we’re concentrating on? Early on, first thing in the morning we’re fishing either over the top of hydrilla or on the windy shorelines. Shortly thereafter we’re moving on out to the 1st breakline, fishing main lake banks and points. Like I stated earlier the shallow bite has been best. Our colors and brands of plastics have been Lake Fork Tackle, watermelon seed, red shad, blue fleck and plum apple.

The 2006 “Fat Girls” page is already taking on a great look and the forecast for the remaining months of this year look great too. To have your picture posted there it must be a minimum of 4 pounds, unless the angler is a child or woman.

• 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.

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 and fall. 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. 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!!!
