Welcome to Lake Fork

Lake is +.32 over pool and surface temps are in lower 70s. We've had some real sporadic weather here in the last month with bad storms, rain and wind. Fishing for the most part has still been pretty good for us. We also had a few big ones last week. With all the run off we've had two gates open for a few days now trying to get the lake back down to full pool. This will be the third year in a row the lake has been full and covering lots of vegetation through most of the spawn. The fry survival rate will be great for future fishing years to come here. We have fish in all stages right now. May should be a great fishing month this year. We're starting off with top waters such as the Vixon and Duo Realis Pencil walking baits early and even staying with them a lot longer if there are clouds. Just as is was last year at this time the frog bite will be awesome also with the newly flooded vegetation. We're pretty much still staying shallow early then moving out to mid depth post spawn hangouts a little later. Secondary and main lake points are what we are focusing on then. C-rigs, Texas rigs and shorter c- rigs are our main techniques. May is also a great crank bait and swim bait month in these type places. There are also a few fish starting to move out a little deeper in post spawn. More will move out there as the month rolls along. The deeper water bite is what I love and we will be concentrating more on these places in the month. C- rigs , football jigs and drop shots will be our baits of choice. I will give a more detailed bait and color selections in my next report. If your looking for a guide I have good available dates left this month and also booking dates for June. These may also be my favorite two months for you to catch your personal best fish. To book your trip now call or text my cell @ 972- 979- 4850 or email me @ You can also visit my website for more info @ Also check out my Instagram pics out on this page.   As always thanks for reading my report.

Good Fishing,

Eddie Garrett
