  • Lake Fork Fishing Report - TX

    Night fishing on Lake Fork has been awesome for the past few trips. They fed very well during last week's full moon. We got 2 over 9 pounds one night and one over 10 on the following trip. Numbers were good too, especially after midnight.

    Fork is in good shape this summer. The lake is currently at 403.12, which is about an inch high. Last year, it was just low enough where the majority of stumps were right at the top of the water level - with hundreds of them between each of my favorite spots. I wasn't able to hit very many spots in a night, which made it very frustrating, especially on nights when they weren't biting well. This year, the lake is full so I can travel much faster and cover at least twice as many areas. The downside is that it looks like there aren't any stumps. But trust me, they haven't gone away. They are still down there!! Use the bouys and be safe!



    I've been doing best around 25 ft in the evenings, and less than 10 feet at night. Spoons, C-rigs, and tailspinners have been best out deep. Crankbaits, swimbaits, and worms up shallow.


    The fishing on my last couple of day trips didn't compare to the evening and night fishing trips. I've found the best feeding times to be from daybreak to sunup, from 6PM to dark, and from midnight to 4AM. So the typical guide trip (sunup to 5PM) is the worst fishing of the 24 hour day. As inconvenient as it is, I try to make my trips revolve around the best times to catch fish. So, I'm revising my fishing hours to accomodate the better times for catching.


    This summer, a standard night trip is from 6PM to 4AM (10 hours for $400). A standard 1/2 night trip is from 6PM to 11PM (5 hours for $250).


    My latest obsession is getting videos of my clients catching fish. This year, I've got a video for just about every trip. I've made my share of mistakes, but I'm getting much more experienced at videography.
    I would really like to get your kids on video. If they are old enough to turn a reel handle, they are old enough to get on video catching fish. If you can bring them while they still have all their baby teeth, I don't think you can get a cuter video. My favorite age is from 4 to 10 (they only get older). But I think any kid will have a good time.


    Right now, I'm offering a promotion to encourage taking your kids fishing and getting an awesome 1080p full-hd video with music. $150 for up to 2 1/2 hours fishing (6pm to dark). The included video will take about 3 hours of my time. So, you're getting over 5 hours of my time for $150. Thats for 2 adults and 1 kid - or 1 adult and 2 kids. Email me at richie@bassfishing.org
