My advice: don't get your expectations up. That lake is extremely tough unless you fish it a ton. I've been 3 times this year and caught one fish. She just so happened to be 8 and a half lbs, but there was a lot of sitting around not catching fish during those trips. That's just Fork. You can luck into a bite occasionally and it might be the best fishing you've ever had. But much more often than not, you would have caught more fish going to your local lake and throwing a spinnerbait, worm, or crankbait around good structure.
For the guys who fish it all the time, it really is an awesome lake. The plethora of slot fish make it unlike almost anything else around. But it just gets beat up too hard to be an easy lake to fish for the occasional visitor.
Happy birthday though! Good luck!
