February was a great month on Lake Fork. we have quite a few hawgs over seven pounds in the boat and several were right at the double digit mark. March has started off on a bad foot but after this massive cold front passes, I expect the bass to move up in large numbers making it easy to find the trophy's we dream of. Until the water temps reach 60 degrees and hold there for a decent period of time, I would continue to throw rattle traps around the hydrilla and concentrate on the points and drains. Red is still a good color but the Chrome has really done well on sunny days lately. Focus on the gold traps on cloudy days. pay close attention to the water color. If it is fairly clear, the jerk bait could be a huge winner. If you can see more than four inches down, dig out an orange trap. Gold spinnerbaits with a #5 colorado blade also works well.

As the bass continue to move up, start to focus on wood. It is amazing how many of these trophy hawgs will spawn next to a big stump or laydown. Light jigs will work well, perch colors on sunny days and black/blue on cloudy days. As of today, main lake temps are still in the 40's. Focus your efforts on the northwest side of the lake especially toward the backs of these pockets. Shallow water will cool faster but it will also warm faster. The action should get good by this coming weekend. Once the water temps stay in the 60's for a while, I will start throwing a swimbait. Pre-spawn fish will trounce this offering before they head up to spawn. Give me a call if your looking to learn something about Fork. I still have days open in March and April.
