Thank goodness for this warmer weather! This last week we finally saw the water warming up and found some 53 degree water in some area’s. There is still a lot of water in the 40’s but it’s a good start. Some big bass are also starting to show up, although not fast and furious yet, but better.
Our best baits have been lip-less Crankbaits such as Rattletraps, Spinnerbaits, and just recently the Jerkbait has started catching more bass. One of Mark’s clients caught an 8 1/2 pound bass on a Jerkbait in about two foot of water.
Mark and Frank finished 4th this last Saturday in the Budlight tournament and had to catch the under the slot bass on a 5 inch worm on a dropshot around timber. It is time to start fishing a Jig in the back of the creeks to catch some really big bass.
We are going to try and post fishing reports once a week all through springtime to keep you up to date on what is going on here at Lake Fork.
We have some really good days open for the next 3 weeks, so check your calendar and book your trip now. We look forward to helping you catch your trophy bass!
Barbara and Mark Stevencon
