LAKE FORK WEEKLY FISHING REPORT May 2016

 J & M Guide Service

This week was a good week of fishing here at Lake Fork.  The water temperatures were in the upper 70’s to the low 80’s.  The water clarity continues to get better every day.  The Bass fishing was just fare this week.  The wacky rig and the Carolina rig were the most constant fish producers!  On the wacky rig we used the watermelon/red Zoom Trick worm and dyed the tail chartreuse.  On the Carolina rig we used the watermelon/red Zoom Baby Brush Hog with the tails dyed chartreuse.  The wind precluded us from doing much deep water fishing.  When we were able to move out on the points, the Carolina rig worked the best.  Our rod and reel combination this week continues to be Duckett rods and ABU Garcia Orra SX reels with Stren 17 pound test line.

The White Bass continued to be attacking Joe Spaits ½ ounce chrome Flashtail spoon.  There are on just about on every hump from 19 to 25 foot of water.  Take the kids out and let them have fun catching them.

The Crappie fishing this week was fare this.  The better Crappie were taken on straight minnow rigs in 14 to 16 foot of water.  A few good Crappies were taken under the bridges when the wind would let you stay out in the deep water.

The Catfish fishing was on fire this week again.  Numerous good Catfish were being taken in 24 to 26 foot of water on punch bait.  The key continues to be baited trees.

The Lake Fork Marina tackle shop has a great selection of Duckett rod and ABU Garcia reels.  While in the Lake Fork Marina tackle shop make sure you check out the Strike King 1.5, 6XD and 10XD crankbaits.  

The Skeeter Tournament is just around the corner.  Here at J & M Guide Service we have a few open days for guided Bass fishing trips to help you get ready for the tournament.  Give us a call at (903) 413-6919 or E-mail us at:  bassmr@geusnet.com .  Have a great fishing week and keep a tight line!
