Don't let'em fool ya, Outdoor they're just jealous. I didn't start fishing Fork until the summer of '86 but I can tell you this, the lake you're fishing now has zero resemblance to the lake back then. If you had a black/blue worm and a rod and reel you could catch fish especially if you knew where the old brood ponds were. I didn't have a trolling motor on my Kingfisher boat but didn't matter cause I could tie up to a tree, never move and catch bass till the world looked level. Thanks for posting those pictures, it helped me remember the "good 'ol days".


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

Back in them days I ran a dairy farm in Yantis in the back of Birch. After my work was done I would slide my little bassbuster off in the trees and fish some of them old ponds. Most of my land I had is now under water on Fork. Now those were the good ole days.

I just wish that I could have fished the lake back then.

They had a network of guides and some of them had Marine radios in their boats. It was the real deal in bass fishing

All I can say is, WOW!I know Fork is known for big fish, but, I have yet to break the 3# mark. Too much (all) of it looks good to me, I just usually pick the wrong good looking spot.

I have a video we took in 1983 and have spent many nights staring at the coves we were fishing trying to figure out where we were. Still can't just too much timber but I can tell you that it was in Mar. and we sight fished for 3 days and never caught a fish under 4lb. Our guide, I believe his name was J B Barnes had the best eyes of any man I ever fished with. He spotted nests in 5-6 ft of water. We threw plastic lizards and if the fish was big enough and wouldn't commit we'd toss a water dog on her. It was an unbelievable lake, better than 2011 Falcon, 1979 Zaza, or any other lake I have fished. Sure enough not the Fork of today.

Like alot of others here on TFF....I fished Lake Fork regularly in the late 80's and ever since.
It's always been my gut to say fishing is "off" there due to pressure.... however, I see pics and read posts every day about huge bass still being caught there.
By the way...my PB is 11.12 from Fork on Aug. 19, 1996.
4 a.m. on a C-Rigged Berkely Power Fry in Mustang creek.
Just happened to be on my birthday.
Good old days....indeed.
