I am taking my wife and daughter to Lake Fork on Father's Day weekend....neither one can use baitcasters. I probably will have them use either spincast or spinning reel setups. We will be leaving out of Lake Fork Marina. I am not familiar with running the lake. Suggestions for areas to fish for white bass close to our ramp? Slabs, Little george type baits? Thanks for any help. Living in west Texas, Lake Fork is a bit intimidating for me.
Most of the road beds are holding sand bass. If you're not familiar with running the lake you may want to trailer to one of the public ramps to launch. LFM is my favorite place on the lake but running out of there us a bit tricky if you're not familiar. There are quite a few stumps between their cove and the main lake.
Go to the 515 East public ramp and launch. The old 515 road is right there by that ramp and you can fish up & down it and catch all the sandies you want. If the south wind is too bad try the old 515 West road bed. You can launch right there near it too and is better protected from south wind. The 2946 road bed is full if them too. You can launch right on top if it.
Jigging spoons and Little George type baits will catch them. Do yourself a favor and mash the barbs flat on your baits. You can get the fish off the hook faster plus if they stick one in you when they rear back to cast it'll be a lot easier to get out.
