Lake Fork Big Bass Update 1/19/14

Capt. Andrew Grills
January 19, 2014
Lake Fork - Freshwater Fishing Report

Fishing is good right now on Lake Fork, considering it is January. Numbers of fish caught are lower than what you would expect the rest of the year, but the average size is very good. Although the numbers aren't that high, it isn't unusual if we don't catch a single fish under 4lbs in a given day. I love this time of year because the lake isn't crowded and the bass you do catch are gonna be good ones.

Today my customer Bud Biram, who has been fishing with me on a regular basis since last June, broke his personal best again. This time it was a 9lb 10oz beauty! She is the first fish in the pictures. He had the patience to keep at it and it paid off. The main mistake I see people make this time of year is that they lose patience and confidence because they don't get many bites. I work specific stretches over thoroughly, with lures that have been proven to work on Lake Fork through the years, because I'm sure big fish are close by.

Right now I am keying in on a variety of areas. The best pattern for me has been fishing break lines adjacent to spawning flats, but the jig bite is still producing the better quality fish on most days. I'm basically fishing in places where fish stage up to prepare for spawning. This is a great time to catch a double digit sized fish because the larger, female fish are feeding to put on weight before they spawn and they're full of eggs. If you look at the list of the largest bass ever caught in Texas, you'll find many were caught in January and February.

If you're looking to catch a trophy sized bass I encourage you to give Lake Fork a try during the next month. Its a great time to catch a big one!

I cater to a wide variety of fishermen from around the country. Anglers of all ages and skill levels are welcome! While many customers just want to catch bass and have a good time, I also offer instructional trips regarding seasonal fishing patterns, deep water, specific techniques, and how to interpret sonar. I specialize in Lowrance electronics and use HDS units in my boat.
