Also throwing a V&M Wild Thang in Plum Apple and Red Bug on a Excite heavy shaky head. Also a 10.5'' J- Mag on the same technique. We will use a drop shot too on tough conditions.

Welcome to Lake Fork Water level is - .63 and surface temps are mid to upper 70s. This Spring was one of the most inconsistent ones I've seen since in a long time. Lot of cold fronts in and out with flatulating water level was the main reason I think. We just didn't have the numbers on a daily basis like we have in the past. Good thing is the spawn fry survival rate should be awesome with all the new cover. We have been staying shallow all the way up to now. Lot of fish are starting to move out offshore now finally which is my favorite way to target them. Secondary and main lake points are where to look for them right now. Top waters early shallow on these points will work well. Carolina rig, drop shot, shaky head and cranking are the other best techniques to try. Shallower humps, ridges, road beds and pond damns also. It should start fishing a lot more consistent with more stable weather. As always thanks for reading my report. If you need a guide please contact me by cell or text 972 979 4850.

5/1/23 fishing report

Welcome to Lake Fork Lake level is only - .95 low and still rising from recent rain runoff. Surface temp is 67 to 68 degrees after long cold front last week. This past April was one of the most inconsistent bites I've ever seen here. Just too many cold fronts with up and down temps. We're still staying very shallow using tx. rigged senkos and flukes for the most part. Some rigged wacky in areas the flooded cover isn't that thick. Their has also been a frog bite on some occasions with cloud cover but not very consistent. We're also throwing a short c-rig with flukes. There's still some fish spawning and we will see a another very small wave on this coming full moon on the 5th . I'm about to move offshore for post spawners. May is a very good month to fish Fork. Shad spawn on shallow points and shell beds early in the month. It's also swim bait and top water time on these places. which will be very productive. I also like a cig and drop shot very much this month. If you need a guide I would be happy to have you. You can reach me @ 972 979 4850 by call or text. Also book online @ bassfshingwitheddie.com Thanks for reading my report. Good Fishing!

Lake Fork Fishing Report

Welcome to Lake Fork. Lake level is -2.20 and surface temps are starting at 59 and going to 64 in the afternoon where we've been. Like I said in my earlier report last month the spawn would start early this year with the warmer temps. They have started bedding and a lot of them coming shallow now. We're fishing pre spawn and spawning fish. The best bite has been 2' to 5' for us. Secondary points, spawning pockets, flats, drains and ditches are what we're targeting. A lot of fish will also spawn in the newly flooded weed areas in the back of coves.Weightless stick baits and very small weighted tx, rigs are working best in these areas. Also chatter baits and swim jigs with white trailers working with a little wind. I'ts about to really take off out there after a very hard bite we had this Winter. If you need a guide please call or text me @ 972 979 4850 . You can also book online or get more info bassfishingwitheddie.com March is almost most pretty much booked but I have good April dates available. As always thanks for reading my report. Good Fishing!

Lake Fork Fishing Report

Welcome to Lake Fork Water level is -4.38 and surface temp is lower 50s. This is the best water level we've had since early last Winter. We had a pretty severe cold front here last week then some much needed rain. The ground was already saturated so most of it was runoff into the lake. Looking at the extended future forecast it looks fairly mild heading toward Spring. These big females will start heading toward their pre spawn haunts early this year. I like to start fishing the upper Northern part of the lake stating in early Feb. and continuing staying on that end through March. The water will always be a little warmer and that's where they will start spawning first. Main lake and secondary points at mouths of the larger creeks are idea early staging places. On a little warmer trend move on into the creeks and fish larger wood on the sides of them. Also try spawning flats outside the creeks in the warmer afternoons. A lot of baits will work for these pre spawners. Jigs, suspended jerk baits, chatter baits, spinner baits, cranks and I like a c-rig with a creature bait. With the lake level on the rise this should be a good pre spawn and spawn this year. If you need a guide please feel free to call or text me. 972 979 4850.

Lake Fork Fishing Reports- January 2023

Welcome to Lake Fork Lake level is- 5.17 and surface temps are in the low 50s, Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I'm really looking forward to the 2023 new fishing year.! January is typically a transition month before the February pre spawn approaches. Numbers are normally pretty low but quality will be good. This month the fish will be in transition and grouped up fish can be hard to locate sometimes but Fork can be rewarding if you find them set up right. You could also catch a giant at this time. Posting this to let everyone know I'm also now accepting dates for February pre spawn and March and April spawn. Not many anglers on the water right now but it will change drastically as Feb. approaches. With the future forecast showing a milder Winter ahead the pre spawn and spawn could be earlier this year. Lake Fork has some great guides here to choose from. I would love the opportunity to earn your business.. Thanks again and looking forward to fishing with you! Tight lines!
