Gary, who has been fishing Lake Fork since 1985 and Monticello since 1980, will provide you with both an exciting and safe big bass experience.  We enjoy fishing Monticello in the winter months and Lake Fork from early spring through fall. However, we will fish either lake at your request. Contact us now and book your trip!


Lake Fork is located on the Sabine River in Hopkins, Rains, and Wood counties with a surface area of 27,000 acres and was impounded in 1980. Aquatic vegetation such as hydrilla, milfoil, and water hyacinth with many creeks, standing timber and underwater roadbeds provide many different types of structure for catching trophy bass at Lake Fork. A combination of restrictive slot limit (16-24 inches) and stocking of Florida strain bass have contributed to Lake Fork's development into one of the country's premiere trophy bass lakes. Over half of Texas' Top 50 largest bass entered into the Share Lunker Program were caught from Lake Fork.
