Loc: Lake Fork, Texas
Fork is fishing fantastically right now! We have been spending 100% of our day sight fishing resulting in a 7-9# fish everyday! I'm concentrating on the south to mid lake areas to avoid the dirtier water. I have two baits I throw at a spawning fish right now, a pegged 3/8oz Tx rig Zoom Speed Craw in natural crew colors on 15# Seaguar InvisX in a Falcon Amistad Special Rod and a Zoom Fineese Worm in Watermekon Red with a nail in the head for those pesky suspended bed fish. We put the Minn Kota Fortrex 112 on 60-80% and start running bank first looking for a bed, when you spot a bed focus a little harder and look for a fish. My Power-Poles play a huge role in our sucess buy not only keeping us stationary but also stopping quickly, quietly and with no mud created by stomping on the trolling motor. I have also been using my push pole a lot to push through flats so I don't muddy the water and fine running my position when setting up on a fish. Once a spot a fish I let it sit a few moments and see if it spooks off, looking to see how far ut spooks and how fast it comes back. If it doesn't spook or comes back within 30 seconds to a minute it's normally catchable. Pay close attention to where it sits as that's normally the sweet spot where you want to put that craw! Make a pitch 3-5 feet past the bed if possible and make it have a quiet and precise entry. Bring it to the fishes face and start jiggling. If it stays and gives you some sort of reaction (roll, nose down or tail kick to the bait) reel out after the bait is off the bed and get back in there ASAP bc it's about to bite! The wacky worm is much more difficult to pitch but works great on deeper beds where bass often suspend and won't go down to get the craw however slot of times you can pop the craw up to it and they will simply suck it in and never move! I make it extremely easy to learn in person as every fish is like a book, you just have to learn to read the book! My Costa Del Mar Blackfin 580G sunglasses are a must even in the clouds. 75% of my clients struggle to see a fish unless it rolls, they learn quickly that when I say set the hook to trust me as it's on! You also don't have to cross a fishes eyes when it bites just a nice crisp hookset is best and remember keep the slack out and guide it away from stumps! We lost a 13-14 last week bc of an extreme hookset with braid costing a customer the fish of a lifetime frown

Back up patterns:
There is currently a good SHALLOW frog bite going on as well, white if it's sunny, dark if it's cloudy and green/natural color just because. There's also a good swimbait bite happening, dark swimbaits on windy points have been best according to my local reports. Of course a drop shot Zoom Finesse Worm in 6-12' and a Jerkbait will catch some fish to! With the rain coming I'll probably be out doing these secondary patterns during periods if rain.

I am currently BOOKING Spring 2016 trips and April is 1/2 booked so get with me quick for your cance to catch that big ole bed fish!

Current Lake Level: 400.16 Full Pool is 403.00 making the lake 2.84 Low

Thanks for the report, I'm headed to Fork for the first time and this gives me a great starting point. I know I won't come out of there with the results you've been getting, but it sure beats going in blind.
