We spend 6 days on Lake Fork.
We stayed at the Lake Fork Lodge www.lakeforklodge.com This is a really nice place to stay and we recommend it.
We got out to the lake Tuesday 3-29-2016 and we were on the water by 10 am. The main lake temp was 62 degrees.
We went to Glade area on Lake Fork.
We caught several great fish. My brother had his personal best 22" and 6 lbs.
I caught a Bass that went 25 inches and 8.18 lbs. Picture provided.
The bass had blood running from the tail. I would assume it was on a bed or just finished spawning.


Then I caught another fish that went 24.25 inches 8.54 lbs. picture provided



We were using Black Salty's for bait. The bait came from the Lake Fork Country Store on 515. www.blacksalty.com
We fished from 10 feet to 1 foot of water.
We also caught a few catfish every day.
The water temp was over 65 degrees in the small pockets all around the lake.

Wednesday 3-29-2016 it rained with thunder and lightning. We were off the water by 10:30 am. We fished closed to the Lake Fork Lodge. I think it was called Steward Creek. We caught a few bass.

Thursday was the return of nice weather. Main lake water temp was still at 62 degrees.
We went to the exact same spots in the Glade area of Lake Fork and and it was slow. We caught a total of 10 fish.
Friday we had rain in no lighting. We fished in the rain at least 6 hours. We had high winds at times and 3 foot waves. We fished closer to the Lodge and then later went back to Glade. Still limited success. The water at Glade looked very muddy.

Saturday we fished Glade again with limited success and then went to the area around the golf course in Little Caney. Few fish. Very slow. We found fry balls in Glade in the shallows.
Sunday we fish a half a day in Little Mustang and Williams. Few fish. Small fry about 2 inches long that looked like bass.

We did not see any fish on the beds. With rain it was very difficult as the water was very muddy. Main lake temp was 62 degrees and the max was 68 degrees. We caught a few fish on artificial lures. Our measuring device was a Igloo cooler with a 24 inch ruler and we had a digital scale. We could never figure out the fish. The rain and storms really seemed to effect the fish.


Yes this was our boat.




If you are going to be negative about the greatest fishing trip of my life i will delete the post. To the best of our abilities and the measure device we had, I caught 2 fish that were over 24 inches.

Saw you drive across the HWY 17 bridge over Big Mustang. Either Sunday the 27th or Monday the 28th. Nice rig. Nice trip.

We stick out on the lake. We were stopped by the Game Warden in Glade. 2 wardens in the boat. They were polite and professional. They asked for Fishing License, Life Jackets and Fire Extinguisher. They were very polite an professional

Good stuff and nice report! One of my more memorable trips to Fork was with live bait. Couldnt buy a bite on artificals in the dead of summer, so we drove into town and bought 4 dozen black salties. Went back, tied up to a stump on a hump and caught a fish every cast until we ran out of bait.

what a great trip you guys had.
as is stated on here all the time,,,,,,it is called fishing, not catching. BUT it appears that you did a little bit of catching. Congrats on the 2 overs. Strange you couldn't get on a good pattern, but that has been Fork this Spring.

Live bait fishing on Lake Fork is still no guarantee you're going to catch bass. I got skunked on March 22nd ( full moon )using saltys. The coves I fished in were dead. Lake Fork fishing can be a humbling experience. I hope to give it another try soon. The plan is to feed them, catch them, take pictures and release them in the same spot.

Congrats. Nice fish. I would use those things for bait but I'm scared to touch them. Love the boat. I need that for Calcasieu

You're scared of black saltys, Neches? The look like a little black koi. You sure you're not referring to waterdogs?
