Hello everyone!
I am getting to fish Lake Fork this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I am super excited. I was hoping some of you might be willing to possible recommend some baits, lake locations or just anything that might be of some help. Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.

Well unfortunately I can not reschedule due to having to work all the time. So any other input other than not to fish this weekend?

Expect a lot of boats on the water. Id say throw a popping frog in flooded grass, back in the nasty stuff. Senkos might not be a bad idea either. Not too sure on the deep fish. Best of luck!!

Have fun, be courteous, be safe. Don't worry too much about the crowd. I have had some good days with lots of other people on the lake, been humbled plenty too lol. Enjoy!

Don't worry about the crowds...most boats will be following the pros. Most pros will be out deep. Pick some spots and take your time figuring them out.

Justin the Toyota Bass Classic is what they're talking about. It brings out the top pros from a few different circuits and they all compete. It'll bring out a lot of people, not to mention the country bands that are going to be playing there will bring more. Go and have fun.

I am not to concerned about the traffic. I am used to fishing heavy traffic lakes back in Arkansas but I am just unfamiliar with what baits work the best on Fork

From legends tourney 10ft and less was the ticket... throw the frog in the dirt, fluke typically not bad shallow. Look at map lots of deep stuff.

And be ready, this is a "major" tornament is the industry gona be a lot of lookie lues.

Get ready to see some proes too, Ike there, KVD, Combs, Christie... etc

use search function TONS of talk about the lake this year

Just be careful ,, there will be ALOT of boats following the Pros and then a lot of Camera boats running around videoing the Event . And with the few Thousand boats running around trying to see there favorite pro it can get crazy..

Thanks Justin I appreciate that, catslayer said it best by throw the frog in the dirt. Those fish are shallow, but the frog bite seems to be on fire for everyone. Best of luck bud!
