  • Lake Fork Fishing Report - TX

    Last weekend was the Sealy Big Bass tournament. So, my last few trips were to prepare clients for that tournament. It was a success. My client on Thursday got one over 24 inches with me and got 2 checks in the tournament on my homemade spoons. And I had 2 other clients get 3 checks.


    The fish are all over the lake. We got fish in a foot of water as well as 20+ feet. The cooling trend got the water in the upper 70s to lower 80s, which is an ideal temp for activity. I found active fish in the backs of the coves as well as the main lake and mouth of coves. My best baits are primarily shad imitators (spoons, poppers, spinnerbaits, rattle traps, swimbaits), but we're also getting good fish on jigs, worms, and frogs. It's a good time to catch fish! There were 3 fish over 10 pounds caught in the tournament over the weekend.


    I mentioned in my last report that we have a family business doing various computer work. We are in need of additional work to finance college and orthodontics for 2 kids. We specialize in programming websites with databases (PHP, Coldfusion, ASP.net, MSSQL, MYSQL, JQUERY, CSS, C#, AJAX, Bootstrap), but we can do just about anything you need. Whether you need a new website, or you just need to update your current website to integrate with social media and look good on all devices - we can do it. We can do Photoshop graphic work (logos, brochures, business cards, etc.) - or we can even take your Gopro footage and put together video clips. And as you can see from the video, we can work with special-effects. We have low overhead and no beaurocracy. So, we can often finish a project in the time it takes to get most projects started - at a much lower price. Contact whitefamilyservices.com at 214-549-4644 and let us enhance your business.

    I try to post pictures to my Facebook page every trip. So keeping up with that page is a much better report than what I can do in front of my computer at home. If you follow my Facebook page (actually, the Facebook term is "like"), you can get my posts without delay. I often post pictures the day we catch them. So if you see several big fish in the same day, you can rest assured the fishing is good then. If you wait until I post a fishing report, you can be sure that it has slowed down enough for me to leave the lake. Go to www.Facebook.com/LakeForkFishingGuide and click the "like" option to get the posts. Go to any page on www.bassfishing.org and you will find the feed.
