Lake Fork Guide John Morris Fishing Report J&M Guide Service


J & M Guide Service


This week we had a high pressure front, blue bird sky’s and very little wind.  The fishing continued to pick up with numerous large female bass moving up, getting ready to spawn.  The bass were being caught using trick worms, drop shot rigs and split shot rigs.


The split shot rig continued to be the set up for us this week.  We did change up the color up this week.  We primarily used watermelon red Lake Fork Trophy Lures 5 inch Hyper sticks.   We also used 5 inch Zoom watermelon pumpkin trick worms rigged wacky style.  With the fish coming to spawn your presentation needs to be very suttle.  They are very skittish and are spooked very easily.  Just be patient and fish slow.


The crappie are being taken with small minnows all over the lake, primarily in the back of creeks around large stumps.  The white bass were being caught on Alabama rigs using small white and chartreuse jigs as the leader bait.  The white bass were also being taken on the Tackle Factory ½ ounce flutter spoon in the bar fish pattern.  The catfish were also active again this week, being caught on cut bait.


While you are at Lake Fork, stop by Lake Fork Marina for all of your tackle and beverage needs.  They can also give you some tips on what the fish are doing on the lake.


I still have some openings in March and April for guided fishing trips.  Give us a call, toll free, 1-888-454-7037.  Be safe and wear those life vest.  We hope to see you out here on beautiful Lake Fork, TX.
