David Vance’s Lake Fork Report March 24th

017This week has been good for big fish and numbers with the last few days of warm weather, the bass are on the move to the shallows to spawn all over the lake, and there is a lot of fish that are on the beds. You can expect to see a lot of big bass caught in the next few weeks. Most of the bass we are catching right now are in 2 to 4 feet of water over the spawning flats, today Danny Watson from California fished with me and we put 33 bass in the boat, and one that weighed 8 lbs 3oz and one that weighed 7lbs 7oz All these fish came on a Green Pumpkin Brush Hog, the way we are fishing the Brush hog is on a short Carolina rig with a 3/8oz weight. This week we have also caught fish on watermelon seed Trick worms fished wacky style. We are lining up for some great spawning action all the way through April, Lake Fork is about 4 feet low but in great shape, there was another bass over 14 pounds caught this week, Lake Fork has been on fire for big fish so far this spring.

Looks like we have a cold front coming in this week but it will be short lived and the weather we will be back in the seventies by the end of the week, and more bass are going to move in. One mistake that I see a lot of fisherman make this time of year is fishing way too fast, once these bass start spawning there strike zone is small, and with a slow presentation you will have a much more successful day. Good places to try right now are Alligator Cove, School House Cove, From the mouth of Little Caney all the way to the back, and the north banks of big and little Mustang. If you are looking for some great Spring fishing, Lake Fork is the place to be. If you would like to book a Guide Trip, you can reach me at #  903-629-7699  or my cell# C903-629-5085. Website
