David Ozio Lake Fork Report 2-20-14

I had the privilege to guide Linda and Alan Marr yesterday and can’t say enough about what great people they are. It was both a fishing and educational trip and we accomplished all the above in one day. The bite wasn’t fantastic but we did manage to boat twelve nice chunks with Linda capturing the Wall of Fame honors with this nice gorilla pictured below. The trap bite is slowing considerably due to the amount of pressure that the grass has sustained and it may take major warming trend to resurrect it. The fish are still there but the numbers per day have dwindled immensely. Even though the water temps were in the mid fifties yesterday, that is still not enough to get these big girls ramped up. We will need these warm days to hang around for quite a while to convince them that it is time.

I am now focused on the creeks as the push to spawn is right around the corner. Fish will stage outside of the spawning areas with secondary points and channel swings being the best place to start your search. C-rigs, Texas rigs and light jigs will garner a lot of bites and the next warming trend could usher in the swimbait bite. Can’t wait!

Also, I picked up my new Skeeter FX last week and I’m here to tell you that this is an incredible ride. It has a ton of bells and whistles and exceeds every expectation that I had with the boat. Love the rod box latches. The Yamaha SHO speaks for itself, bad to the bone. I have some dates available in March if you have a mind to tackle some of these Lake Fork behemoths.
