Default Lake Fork Guide David Ozio Fishing Report

April was an incredible month capped by a 12.26 behemoth caught by Zach Turner on April 25th using a M-Pack Lures Pack Mule swimbait. The water conditions were perfect and Zach worked the fish to perfection. This fish was close to the Share a Lunker program and we all thought he had it once the big girl was in the net. Reflecting on that stellar day, we managed an eight plus into the boat and lost two nine pounders at the net. What a day to remember. We also had several for to six pound fish that didn't even come into focus. All the hoopla was on the once in a lifetime giants.

Early April was nothing to sneeze at. We had several excellent days on the Alabama Rig, shaky heads and chatterbaits. The bite was on for most of the month with the exception of a few cold fronts followed by high pressure. On those days, the numbers fell off substantially but the quality was still outstanding. On the average day, the harder the wind blew, the better the bite was. You just have to trust me on this one as most anglers opt to hide from the wind in protected coves. You just have to deal with taking the waves over the bow and make sure you don't drift into a stump while you are handling a big fish. These conditions can be very stressful but patience is needed to truly take advantage of these brutal conditions.

May has started off with a bang as my partner and I fished two tournaments this past weekend.The first day we had thirty-three fish and the second day, well over fifty. Plenty of fish are shallow and on the beds. They will react to a weightless fluke or senko worked shallow. Also, a large majority of pre and post spawn fish relate to wood for a short time and can be caught on shaky heads, jigs and drop shots. It's all a matter of being in the right place at the right time. The remainder of May should be spectacular. Post spawn fish will start to move out to the deep humps and ridges and gang up in large groups. This is when my Lowrance electronics will help to locate these large groups and set the stage for the best drop shot bite of the year. Also, the 10XD will come into play if your arms can stand it.

All of this action will carry over into early June so you better call up and get booked for the fishing excursion of a lifetime. The next six weeks is my favorite time of the year and I plan to land some double digit giants. Come join the fun.
