    Try Lake Fork instead of Tawakoni. Fork always produces!!!!!!!

    Amoung all the north Texas cat fisherman I know, when it comes to catching numbers and size of catfish, Fork ranks pretty low when compared to other lakes in the area. When cat tourney's are held there, on average, it usually have the lightest weigh-ins of the year. Not that you can't catch them there, but day-in, day-out there are better choices locally. Yearly they hold a big cat tourney there because of the facilities available which were built for the lakes legendary bass population.
    In the same general area of the state, before I'd fish Fork for cats, I'd fish: Tawakoni, Palestine, or Cedar Creek. Hubbard is an excellent cat lake as is Lavon and Richland Chambers. Of course, most of these extremely low right right now but I know Lavon, Hubbard, and Cedar Creek are producing nice blues. My guess would be that Tawakoni and Palestine are as well.
    This three to four day cold blast we have coming may change that for the next week or so.

    wow...i strongly disagree with the statement about fork not producing numbers. i typically pull in 60 fish a day on my trips. now size might be a factor. i am not looking to catch the hog just lots of decent size fish. most fish i catch at fork are 4 - 6 pounds with a few dinks at every hole.
