Lake Fork Professional Guide J.W. Peterson with an 11.4 Lake Fork bass Lake Fork:
The Bass fishing was awesome this past week at Lake Fork. We boated anywhere from 35-75 Bass per day up to 8 lbs again and lots of Bass in the 2-4 lb range fishing in both deep and shallow water. These fish are fat and healthy and are putting up a great fight. Some days you might not get the fish to bite because of wrong location, weather etc., but make no mistake, Lake Fork is Full of Bass. Carolina Rigs worked great again this week but 1/4 oz Shakey Heads with Baby Brush Hogs and the Drop Shot Rigs produced the most Bass for me. The best colors for me were Watermelon and Red Bug. The cloud cover was great this past week and it kept the Bass biting just about all day long. If we don't receive any major cold fronts for a while, the Bass fishing will remain good with lots of action. Fall is a great time to be on the lake and we spotted several Bald Eagles on the lake this week as well. " What a beautiful bird." We posted a few more pictures on our Facebook page at Call me or text 214.236.3320 to book a trip to Lake Fork or email us at

At this time the water temperature is right at 72 degrees and the water level continues to slowly drop at 400.49 or - 2.21 off of full pool. The water clarity is clearing but still a little off color in some areas. Fishing is Good.

No Catfish report this week but the Crappie fishing is good with limits caught in 25-27 feet of water on both Jigs and Minnows. The Crappie are moving out to the bridges, points and humps and should continue to get even better as the water temperature drops due to the cooler nights. I have guides available and we furnish tackle and equipment at no charge and we clean and bag your fish to take home. We welcome group or individual fishing trip based on our availability. Again call or text 214.236.3320 or email  "Crappie trips are fun for the entire family."

We are already booking fishing trips for the 2017 fishing season and would like to Thank everyone for fishing with us in 2016. Many of you already have 2017 trip scheduled and we are looking forward to seeing you and fishing with you again. Thank you for supporting our fishing here and our Mexico Bass fishing adventures as well. We appreciate you greatly !

Mexico: If you are interested in fishing Lake Comedero, El Salto or Lake Picachos with us for the Spring of 2017 you need to hurry and try to reserve a spot. This is the earliest that we have ever booked up for late December, January, February and early March on all three lakes. Fishing Mexico is a blast "Come join the fun!" For information, real time fishing reports and on current conditions call me at 214.236.3320 or email me at Thank you to everyone that is going with us. We are looking forward to some great Bass fishing action.
Until next report, good luck and great fishing !
