Trophy Bass Fishing Report

February 20, 2014

The weather is warming up and the big bass are on the move at Lake Fork this week. My clients and I have been having great success the past week or so and I expect it to get better and better over the next week. The water temperatures are finally back into the 50’s on most areas of the lake with some surface temps reaching the upper 50’s yesterday. This last very cold snap did do a number on a lot of the green hydrilla that we had growing in the creeks but there is still enough around to hold a number of big females staging in it. Search baits like a lipless crank bait, spinner bait, or chatter bait have been good for covering water and finding groups of fish in the grass. Most of the fish are holding in 2-6 feet of water on points, drains and ditches adjacent to spawning flats. Once you catch one or two, work the area thoroughly because there will be more bass there. We have also been catching some flipping timber along the creek channels in 8-12 feet. A black & blue Talon jig with a Berkley Chigger Craw is hard to beat this time of year for a giant bass. This next week should get very interesting if the warm weather continues so if you have been holding off because of the cold to head out to the lake, now is the time to start making plans to get out here. Lake Fork is going to get real good, real quick!
