Loc: Lake Lavon

We stopped by Thermocline Lures on our trip to Lake Fork on Friday. The lake is chocolate milk or worse, really stirred up. Plus as you can see by the photo, it was a bluebird day. We had trouble finding fish and looked all around. No real pattern or depth yet. I wish I had a picture of the lake when we first pulled up to it. A sea of mud. lol

We always recommend stopping by Thermocline Lures on your trip to fork. They are right on 515 right before the bridge. They can always give you the latest colors and let you know a lake report. It worked for Carter. He picked up some jigs and caught him his new personal best at 2 pounds and six ounces. cool It was one of the colors Todd recommended.



This is what he used to catch his PB.





Had to work for them and hunt all around. the water is completely mudded out. frown






Stop by and see Todd and Belinda on your next trip out... or you can call them... or check out their website. cheers
It worked for Carter. We'll be back!

Honestly TexExp, I make a pilgrimage over to Thermocline’s location about once a year, and I try to make an overnight/weekend type trip out of it...it gives me a chance to visit, have dinner, check out their new offerings, and well just visit (when I’m there I feel like I’m back home with family)...Plus fishing with Tbox is a bonus, he is a pretty good stick, just in case you didn’t know...Additionally, l have seen few people that can match his troller skills (Ernest is one), and the man is an absolute beast reading those electronics.

I recall when he first moved to lake fork...he spent the first few months graphing/griding the lake with only a few stops to fish, if he found something he really liked. That speaks volumes about his dedication to fishing and learning a lake...but if you think that is impressive, you should see his dedication to color combinations on those baits that Belinda produces...WOW, I am constantly amazed...tell you what...take a bait that you like by (any manufacturer, any style) and show it to Todd...he will break down the color combination for you (in about 15 seconds)...and he can tell you a better primary/secondary/ tertiary color for that bait faster than you can process the colors he just presented to you.

The thing that always struck me about fishing with Todd, if he saw an insect, Frog, minnow, etc and could get one in the boat...the analysis that he went through to break down the color combinations, was nothing short of amazing, and it was always broken down by the season and month of the year...just saying, it doesn’t really matter what time of the year it is, if you stop by and ask him for three differerent color combinations that will work, chances are good, two of them will produce (of course you got to be able to get on fish and figure out a presentation). Normally, he knows what presentation is working, at any given time. The other thing, even though you may have those color combinations, chances are Belinda’s offerings are an improvement...because Todd broke down that color combination and inhanced it through in field analysis...Yes, Todd and Belinda make a great team...and their knowledge coupled with their baits, can help you put more fish in the boat...no matter what your skill level may be...minnow fisherman not withstanding... roflmao
