    Hello all. I live in CA. I have a female ex that is now living in TX and started frequenting Lake Fork. She says it holds good records for Bass and Cats. I was hoping the brothers could give me some pointers about the lake, to share with her. She's no pro but she generally has lady luck in her pocket.

    Lake Fork is a great bass/crappie lake. And the catfishing is great, and over look by most.
    Bait rod/reel SHAD
    Bait Jugs / SHAR, LARGE SHINER, ZOTE SOAP I find zote saop at supper one in Tyler tx.
    Mix up a 5 gallon bucket of mash fill bucket 1/2 full of milo, add 2 cans of beer, 1 cup sugar then fill bucket up to the top of the milo Let this mixer set for 3 day (you can add any number of other items ) get a cheep blinder from walmart. blend chicken livers,worms,shad. perch after the milo has set for three day add other bait. snap lid on and let set 3 week in the sun. Then when you get to the lake find 3-4 spot and bait the hole with small coffeecan. after you bait yoour last hole go back and start fishing, with cut bait, worms, livers.

    A note Martin creek state park. set out jug line with cut bait around the railroad bridge. after jug or out drift fish using worms, liver, small cut bait.

    all my big blues have come on jug line 12 lb and channel cat on ror/reel 4-5 lb class
