I had the pleasure of meeting another TFF member last week (Kevin T) and getting on one of the best Bass Lakes there is, Lake Fork. I got to film Kevin for a evening on Lake Fork and see what he could do in a short amount of time to capture the awesome afternoon bite Fork can offer up sometimes.

I arrived at the Minnow Bucket marina about 3 PM, a hour early do to being excited, to get on Fork and ready to see if I could video a monster bass being caught. With a long day on Bob Sandlin earlier that morning, I decided a nap in the cool ac of the truck was in order. After backing down in the parking lot under a tree and getting all my stuff set up like I wanted it ( pretty much my drink, M&M’s and Twizzlers) I kicked back.

I was awaken by a Text from Kevin just before 4 saying he was almost there and he would pull down to the ramp. Didn’t take 5 minutes I saw a red truck pulling a NEW Jaguar Bass Cat, pulling up.

Kevin and I introduced out selves and I tried to pay attention to him but was more focused on the Boat……Talk about a bad to the bone rig, this boat was rigged up like you wouldn’t believe, and I can’t wait to get with Kevin or someone one day that I can shoot nothing but video’s on it.

Now back to the story, after drooling for about 5 minutes I manage to back him into the water Very Very Very carefully. Nothing like looking back at a $50,000 + bass boat and a dock on the right and another boat on the left in a tight sqeeze….LOL

I get into the boat after checking my shoe’s about 10 times and we head out to Kevin’s first spot.

When we get there, he explains how this area hold post spawn fish and he used to catch them here, but hasn’t been since last Oct.

He lines up for his first cast and is , what seems like a mile away from his target. At this point I'm thinking no way in...HECK...he is going to get close to the Laydowns. Well first cast goes about 10-15 yards past the trees and seemed effortless. I would have called it a fluke if I didn't watch him do it all afternoon. He has spent a lot of time picking out the right rods and reels to achieve this and I think it made a HUGE difference.

Well Kevin T, came out swinging early and often landing a limit of fish, within the first 1.5 hours. He would later cull some of those out but he whacked them pretty good to start off. Kevin’s attack included Crank Baits and Jigs mostly and he never stuck with one lure for a extended period of time. When the dust settled at the end of the day he weighing in at 19.35 lbs for his biggest 5, his biggest fish was 4.65 lbs.


I will now let the video’s tell the story as that’s what these are about you guys showing what you can and want in the videos.


It was a blast riding in Kevin’s 2010 Jaguar and now I’m already drooling and started in o the wife for one…LOL

Kevin it was great to meet you and I never want to fish a deep water paper tournament against you. You put on a nasty Deep Crank and Jig clinic for me and the TFF.

Thanks, oh and by the way. Nice Boat Light..

I have a few more video's to add, and will do so soon.


Kevin Showing a Loop Knot to us.


Kevins 1st, 2 fish of the day, and talks about not going in a area for stuck lures....


THIS IS HOW FAST A TRIP CAN GO BAD....well if it hit you...


How about a small fish and just some funny stuff.


Kevin talking about how he has fished Fork since it has opened.


A few misses and then a catch


Kevin catches a fish and then talks about changing casting angles on them.


He talks about making the right cast to a bank


Just another of one of his many catches..


This is a AWESOME video. He starts telling us how he attacks Fork in the evenings, then at about 2:00 he starts studdering and getting quite, well that because he's about to stick another fish..


He moves to the 154 bridge and starts fishing grass, and catches a nice chunk.


He moves to his Last Spot to fish out the day and sticks this fighter......


Kevin sticks a nice bass on a small crankbait and tries to swing it in....I think we all know how this will end...LOL

That is some good stuff. Can't wait to see the others. If you plan on doing anymore of this I would suggest getting a wireless mic set up. I'm sure the camera your using will work with it. I did some filming on Fork probably about 5 years ago and used just a hand held camera and it worked with a wireless mic system. It makes a world of difference. It wouldn't pick your voice up very well but you would hear Kevin's voice perfectly. I think I spent around $60 at wolf camera. Either way still love the video.

Yeah, I really need to start looking into wireless mics.



I agree with you speedcrawlicious, it makes a huge difference.

Casey,
It was great to get with you on this deal as well, I had a lot of fun and we got lucky enough to have the fish cooperate for the most part.

Sorry I couldnt find the 10lber for the video, maybe next time!
