March Fishing Report:

Lake fork fishing guideWell guys it’s that time of year and the bass fishing on Lake Fork had officially busted wide open.  Bait shops are busy and the parking lots at the ramps are overflowing with trucks and trailers.  If you want a chance at a true giant on Lake Fork now is the time to come.  March and April are by far the months that you have the best chance to bag a giant largemouth around the double digit mark.  With the warm winter we have had the fish are already pushed up in the shallow spawning flats and creeks just off the flats.  This last week we have even caught some fish off beds already in February.  So now what you all want to know, what the heck do I use to catch fish this time of year.  The easiest way to go about this is to tell you exactly what rods I have on my deck and what’s on the business end.  Most of the fish we have caught this last week came on moving baits ( chatterbaits, red traps, and shallow running cranks such as the bandit 200 in spring craw or some form of red).  This is for water that is in the mid 50 degree range.  When the water reaches that magic number of 60 degrees I slow down a little (flukes, shakes heads, split shot rigs, and of course a 1/4 ounce Texas rig creature bait such as the Mister Twister poc it craw or buzz bug.  Let the fish tell you what they want that particular day.  If you are not getting bit change up.  The best fisherman day in and day out stick and move until they find a pattern or area that is rewarding.  Good places to start on the lake if you are coming down in March or April are Glade, Running, Birch, or Lil Caney.  If you can’t get bit there load the boat on the trailer and go play golf!  Hope this helps a lil and if you need anything else or a fun day on the water give me a call.  Thanks and I hope everyone’s trip to Lake Fork is rewarding.  Fish on’
