Hey Guys,

Sorry I haven't put up a report lately. I've just been duck hunting a lot but with this nice weather I've been running some trips and the fishing has been good. I was out today working a half day trip which started out slow but managed 34 by lunch. We didn't catch any monsters but had a lot of good tournament fish and a few slot fish around 4 pounds.

Water temp was running 57-61 by noon and we caught our fish in 1-3 feet of water. These fish seem to set up like before the spawn. I feel a lot of these fish we had today were up cruising, looking around due to the hot water temps. The north end of the lake seems to warm up faster than mid-lake. If I was coming to Lake Fork anytime soon, I would be looking for the warmest water on the north ends. That's what I do.

We fished two baits a 3/8 white chatterbait with a white skinny dipper for the tail. The other bait was a weightless fluke in green pumpkin on a number 3 rigging hook. On both baits I am using 15 pound fluorocarbon on on a 6'8 med/hvy McCain rod.

I do hope this will help y'all out and I will start posting more reports soon. If any of y'all are out on Fork and you have questions or something was to happen to your boat, please feel free to give me a call. I am always around the lake. If y'all are looking to hire a guide, I would love to earn your business. Here are a few from today.

Thanks, Eric

Needed to fix the pictures from yesterday.

This morning we fished for 2 hours and had 12-13 and in the afternoon I ran a half day trip and we had at least 15. A little slower today, but still a lot of fun. Fished 1'-3' water with a chatterbait, weightless fluke and red traps. These two were the best. I will be fishing tomorrow and if anything changes I will let y'all know.



Thanks, E
