Cooler weather is finally here. At least cooler than it has been! The McDonald’s tournament is over with and the winner was Jim Redmon from Waxahachie, TX. with a big bass weighing 10.40 lbs. We just had the Berkley tournament and the winner was Robert Laird Sr. of Livingston, TX. with a big bass weighing 10.24 lbs. Anglers said they caught lots of bass, just getting the right ones sometimes eluded them. The McDonald’s tournament produced a lot of bass over the slot, and again shows why Lake Fork is the place to catch a bass over 10 lbs. Anglers in both tournaments said they also caught a lot of bass in the 3 – 6 lb. range. Just think about it, on any other lake, tournament anglers would love to have those bass that these anglers were releasing to be caught another day.
It took a few days for the lake to recover from all the fishing pressure, but we managed to catch 20 – 25 bass each morning on 1/2 day trips. But, the bigger bass were not easy to catch. We recently had a good cold front and will be getting another one in a few days. We think that after this front and less fishing pressure, with the water cooling down, we will start catching more of the big bass. We are seeing a lot of schooling bass and some big schools of Sandbass.
Now is the time to get a trip booked for a shot at a bass of a lifetime, for the great fall big bass bite! You can look back in history and know that big bass can come just about anytime of the year, although fall and spring can be some of the best fishing that you will ever experience. Also, I know it’s early, but time to be thinking about getting those Christmas presents. A gift certificate for a half or full day guided trip on Lake Fork will be great for family, friends, employees or anyone. You can pay by credit card now using our Pay Pal.
We look forward to your calls and emails, and promise the best service that we can provide. Our goal is to satisfy your fishing requests for a personal trophy bass, learning to fish, or just going out and having fun catch numbers of quality bass, sandbass or crappie.
