My trip out to Lake Fork this past weekend was a relaxing experience. I finally got out of the shop and got on the water. It felt nice. While I failed to catch any bass on my fly rod on Sunday, I did however manage to pull in a 6lb fish the night before using conventional gear — something I haven’t done in years. I anticipated that some fish would have started to move up to start spawning, but after reading 58 degrees on the gps units, I’m not so sure I would have seen any. We were hoping to find water in the 62-64 degree range — even on the north end of the lake the water was cold.

It shouldn’t be too much longer before we start seeing these bass move up, and depending on the body of water they might already have started to. Travis and I have a Diablo kayak on the way, so I plan on visiting Lake Fork and surrounding bodies of water all Spring to stalk monster bass. I can’t wait.

If you’ve gotten out and caught a few fish, tell us your stories and send us some photos! We will be sure to post as soon as we get off the water!
