Report Submitted: 2-6-18

Welcome to Lake Fork


The water level is -1.21 and surface temps are getting up to about 50 degrees. It is now February and the bass are in late Winter transition and a lot of them are moving shallower now This month and March are big fish months The water is cold and your not going to catch a lot of numbers but the larger fish have to have protein to keep up with forming their eggs. I am normally a deep water guide but 12' and closer is where I like to concentrate the most during the next few months. Creek channels, drains, ditches and flats near spawning areas are good. Flipping jigs on creek channel stumps are a good protein mimic but with water at this level you can't see the target. It's best to find sharp creek swings and turns and throw a football jig dragging and thoroughly combing these places. Bridges are also good right now. I like a-rigs and swim baits on them. With the fish in transition you want to key in on funnel points and areas they travel going into pre spawn. There's always deep fish also especially on the lower end of the lake. They will be on ledges and main lake points but will be in places that have shallower water nearby where the can pull up and get warmer on sunny days especially in the afternoons. In this colder water you want to throw reaction baits. Jerk baits, traps, chatter baits, square bills and spinner baits. I like to start throwing plastics more when the surface temps hit 57 to 58 degrees. Then your drop shot, tx rig, stick type baits such as Senkos, chop sticks and flukes come more into play. Now is the time to come to Fork if your wanting to catch a big one. If you need a guide start booking your early Winter pre spawn and Spring spawn trips now. You can call my cell @ 972 9794850 or email egarrett100@yahoo.com now. You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram. My web site is bassfishingwitheddie.com. Group trips also welcome. As always thanks for reading my report and I'm looking forward to hearing from you.


Good fishing and tight lines
