Gary Johnson  Fishing Report

Submitted 4-10-14

 Spring has finally arrived at Lake Fork and the water temperature is rising.  This morning the water temperature was in the low 60's rising to the mid 60's as the day progressed.  Many areas of the lake have cleared up but areas in the far north end of the lake remain stained.  We are catching fish on a variety of lures.  One day the fish may like a slow moving bait and the next day the only bites are on reaction type lures.  Our most consistent bite has been a watermelon Zoom fluke fished on a small Carolina rig or just using a split shot placed about two feet above the lure.  We are fishing these in very shallow water and working them very slowly.  For our reaction bites we are using chartreuse and white chatter baits and white willow leaf spinner baits.  Once again we are fishing very shallow.  There is not much hydrilla in some areas so most of our fish are holding around timber.  We are also catching a few fish on a white swim jig with a paca chunk trailer over the newly flooded areas of grass.  This is a nice subtle change to the chatter bait which is good this time of year.  When the wind is not blowing we are throwing weightless finesse worms rigged wacky style.  

Looking forward to next week I expect the buzz bait bite to begin.  Remember if you are not catching many fish to stay focused because on Lake Fork you are one bite away from the biggest fish of your life!   I hope these fish help you on your next trip to Lake Fork.  If you are looking for a professional guide trip and a great day on the water please give me a call at 214-205-0540.  I still have a few dates open in April so call early for best available dates.  

Until next week, good luck and good fishing!
Gary Johnson
