Lake Fork Guide John Morris Fishing Report 6-27-13


FROM:  J & M Guide Service

Hot weather and hot fishing was on tap for this week.  With the air temperatures reaching middle 90’s and the water temperatures in the mid 80’s the Bass fishing was great.  It started off with a solid top water bite with the white buzz from daylight to about 7:30.  Then it was on to the little crankbait (KVD 1.5) for the next two hours.  Around 10:00 it is was time to move to deeper water (22 – 26 feet) and start using the “The Tackle Factories” flutter spoon.  We found that the chrome and chartreuse worked the best.  Numerous 4 to 8 pound Bass were caught during the heat of the day using the spoon.   One other pattern worked really well was the good ole Texas rigged worm.  We found the Zoom Old Monster in watermelon/candy color was what the bass wanted.  Hint/hint, make sure you dye the tails chartreuse and use at least a 4/0 hook.

The Crappie fishermen continued to do well.  The small white with chartreuse tail Crappie jig seemed to be the best producer.  The better Crappie have moved into 24 to 30 feet of water.  The main lake bridges were the favorite places for the Crappie to hang out.

The White Bass are still biting anything with chrome on it.  We caught numerous White Bass in the two to three pound category with the “The Tackle Factory” flutter spoon.  By the way they are really good eating.  We found the best water depth to catch the better White Bass was 22 to 24 feet around old brush piles on sharp creek bends.

The catfish were on the prowl.  Early morning and after 4:30 PM seemed to the best times to catch good the Channel Cats!  Cut bait and chicken livers worked the best.

Are you looking to take a kid fishing?  The Bream (Blue Gil) are eating every cricket they can find.  Take them to just about any old large stump in 10 to 12 feet of water and watch their faces light up as the bobber goes crazy.

Lake Fork Marina has a great selection of flutter spoons for the Bass and White Bass fishermen, plus crickets for the youngsters.

Looking for a new bass boat?  You need to stop into Nichols Marine in Longview, TX and check out the 2013 Ranger 520c.  It is powered by Mercury 250XS, Minnkota 101 Fortrex T/M, an HSD 10 in the console and a HSD 8 in the bow, Ranger Boat cover and much more.

We still have openings in July and August for Bass and White Bass Guided fishing trips.  If you need help with getting ready for the McDonalds Big bass Splash we have we still have some openings close to that also.  Give us a call Toll Free: 1-888-454-7037 or E-mail at:
