Lots of great places... roflmao You'll never get around to all of them.

If I were new to Fork, I'd start out at Hideaway Harbor on Little Caney. Its got everything.... shallow, deep water, grass, timber, gators, deer, hogs, and bass. It has a tent camping area as well. One of the better places I've found for schooling bass and one of the most scene areas of the lake to me. $5 launch fee but well worth it in my opinion. Once you learn more about the area you'll be able to hide out from any strong winds.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Did you take those pictures? I had no idea Fork had gators! There have been rumors of some north Texas area lakes possibly having gators but can’t say I’ve seen any personally. Is there an actual thriving population of them in Fork?

gators are in almost every lake in Texas. Fork has had bunches since it opened. pretty common to see them there.

Wow, I never knew that! That’s crazy. Makes me never want to go swimming in the lakes around here again.

Yes and I was back there a week or so ago and raced a gator... I won. roflmao I'd read where they can swim 20 mph but have never seen one come close to any speed I couldn't out run. Saw the one swimming last week at a pretty good clip and chased it down from 100 yards behind it. It kept going faster as I pulled up beside it and when it stopped (guess it was tired or wanted to see what was going so fast) I put phone away and got back on the paddle.

Raced the one below in the Everglades last year.

Gators really are good at fast bursts of speed - for catching prey. I'm not sure of their speed in water, but they can OUTRUN & CATCH most dogs on land in a short burst when they have dinner on their mind. Think about that one for a minute. They're lazy, wanting to conserve energy, so they only do it when they have a reason. I lived in south FL for 20 years, so I'm accustomed to them, not afraid but definitely respectful of their power.
