Lake Fork Guide Andrew Grills Post Spawn Report 5-16-13

Incredible afternoon on Lake Fork today! I usually don’t mention much about numbers, but this afternoon was incredible. On a late half-day trip we boated over 30 largemouth in only 3 hours, losing probably 8-10 fish at the boat on crankbaits (several of those fish were over 7lbs). Along with the largemouth my customer and I caught over 70 white bass. What a fun day! The kicker is that we only had two bass under 4lbs! They were all good quality fish. A day to remember for sure. We actually caught several fish that were bigger than most pictured, but the action was so fast and furious we didn’t take the time to take pictures. The wind was howling and just the time it took to unhook fish we would blow off the spot. This kind of action is not typical, but this is why we love Lake Fork! We were at the right place at the right time.

The pattern for me right now is throwing topwaters and shallow crankbaits early. Then I move out deeper, 5-15′ in most cases. It wont be long until we start consistently catching fish in 20-25′. Lures that are producing in deep water are spoons, crankbaits, heavy shaky heads, carolina rigs, and football jigs.
