Lake Fork Day and Night Guide Service

Licensed Guide Clint Wright

Well, hello fellow fishermen and fisherwomen. This report is for Lake Fork, Texas 14OCT06 until today 25OCT06.

– Lake Mohave

REPORT: Last night I had the pleasure of doing
a seminar at Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits store in Mineola, Texas. We all
had a great time. Jimmy Everett and I were the presenters and I believe
the people got a lot of information and were pleased. I think this is
going to start being a quarterly seminar, I hope some of you can make
out next time. Yamamoto baits have always been my favorite and with the
price of all baits going sky high they are now more competitive.

The fishing here at Lake Fork has been steady. These minor cold snaps
we keep getting are making most folks work for their fish. But, with a
little bit of old knowledge and a little bit of Junk fishing we have
been able to get quit a few fish in the boat. The last few days 200 –
300 series crank baits have been my main stay. These baits are good for
fish in the 3 – 7 pound range. The jig bite has still produced in the
timber and on brush for the larger bite. Early morning and late
afternoon the weightless Senko has brought us some real nice numbers. I
am mainly fishing the 8 – 12 foot range but during the middle of the
day have found fish on the ledges in 15-25 foot with a Carolina rig. I
also must add that the lake is very busy. Over the weekend the boats
were everywhere. I thought things would slow down during the week but I
was wrong. Yesterday there had to be at least 200 boats out. The
Share-A-Lunker program is on everyone’s mind. This is something that
has been a goal of mine for a long time. With a 12.08 this year and
many 9’s and 10’s landed from my boat I feel that a goal of 13 lbs. is
reachable for anyone here. I feel that from now until the early spring
the fishing is going to be awesome here at the lake. I mentioned to
Jimmy that I felt the lake looked younger now that all the wood is up
and showing with the lake level low. Many people just didn’t realize
how much cover and structure this place has to offer until now that
they can visualize it. Personally I like the lake a few feet low. Not
to say a few inches of rain wouldn’t be nice!

Today’s Tip:
I have said it before but here it goes again. If you come to Lake Fork
the opportunity is there for a fish of a lifetime, more so than any
other Lake in this country, the numbers don’t lie. These fish are very
smart. They did not get to be 10 lbs. plus by biting every artificial
bait that comes there way. Patience is going to be your best friend.

Remember to always use sharp hooks and retie often. A good tied knot
looses 50% of its strength in 24 hours. If you get hung up then pull
and tug until it comes loose cut about 3 foot of line off and start
