Gary Johnson  Fishing Report

Gary Johnson's Fishing Report- February 12

Lake Fork is a little over 7 feet low and the water temperature is about 50 degrees on the main lake and as high as 55 in the backs of the creeks. The north end of the lake is slightly stained and the main lake is pretty clear. Upcoming cold weather will probably lower the water temperature for a few days but will warm back up as prespawn conditions continue. Our best techniques this week have been using Alabama Rigs and lipless crank baits. With the Alabama Rig we are using the Flash Mob Jr. and using shad colored trailers with a paddle tail. We are throwing these over road beds, bridges and extended points or places with a pretty clean bottom. Best depths have been with the boat sitting in about 18-20 feet of water and throwing into 6-10 feet of water. Most of the bass caught on the A - Rig have been suspended and are mostly slot fish. We are not getting a great number of bites but most of the fish are pretty good fish. Yesterday we also caught quite a few sand bass which are also moving up out of deep water using the same technique.

As far as the lipless crank baits are concerned, we are throwing a red Yozuri Rattlin Vibe and throwing these over extended points and around timber. We are varying our retrieve and allowing the bait to sink when the bait gets next to timber. A spinnerbait worked in the same areas is also a good bet this time of year. I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake Fork. The fishing will only get better as spring approaches and this is a great opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime. 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 some prime dates left in February, March and April so call early for best available dates.

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