Bass Fishing Records at Lake Fork, Texas

Patti and I traveled to Lake Fork, Texas and stayed at North Shore Landing guest house for a week to enjoy the great outdoors and some BASS fishing. The "Guest House" at North Shore Landing came equipped with our own Golf Cart to ride around the neighborhood. What a GREAT place to stay.

North Shore Landing Pond
North Shore Landing also features a nice pond stocked with fish for your enjoyment. Our pups (Jazz and Doris) thought they were in puppy heaven running around chasing varmints.

Doris wasn't to sure about the Texas Long Horn's. They didn't seem to fit the varmint category and deserved much more respect.

Lake Fork is famous for its Bass fishing in the great state of Texas. Did you know that 33 of the top 50 Texas Bass records are out of Lake Fork? Yep, this is the place to go when you're after Bass "Hogs" for a trophy. The current Texas state record is 18.18 lbs caught on 1/24/92 at Lake Fork (31 years ago).
Lake Fork Bass Fishing
Knowing that my chances of catching a BIG bass were slim to none because of weather conditions and other factors like the season being pre-spawning season. I was able to hire one of the best fishing guides available on Lake Fork. David Vance took me to some nice areas where the large bass are known to gather. We worked hard all day using crank baits and jigs around the tree stumps, flats and shorelines.

We were only able to catch a white bass for the day, but finished the day knowing we did all we could. I guarantee you that no other guide could have done better. I'll definitely give Dave Vance a call to go out again the next time we go to Lake Fork (Just hope he doesn't mind fishing with me again, lol).

Yellow Fin Tuna, Chicken of the Sea!

How about these nice catches, Chicken of the Sea! Good friend, Manual Lara, sent over some pics of a Gulf fishing trip to the Gulf of Mexico last weekend. Paul Swoyer Caught these nice yellowfin tuna using "Last Cast" tuna rods, to put a plug in for Manual. Manual makes custom fishing rods here in Corpus Christi for those serious fishermen/women.

Ya'll have a great day of fishin,

Sal's Rat Red on Padre Island Canals

A guest of ours the last few weeks George Masters invited his co-workers Domingo and Sal over to fish our back dock area. They geared up and dropped some dead shrimp in the canal. POP, Sal catches a rat red pictured. Normally this rat red wouldn't be a big story. But, it is the first redfish caught in our canal. Usually you catch perch, hard-heads and an occasional black drum this deep in the canal's. Recently, the end of our canal is being aerated and seems to be improving our estuary in these canals. Very nice! Ribbon fish have been spotted recently as well another species we haven't seen before.
Sals Rat Redfish
We were certainly glad to open our home to our guests to do a little fishin, even though Patti and I were hard at it working in our front yard landscape placing new plants and mulch.

Y'all have a great day of fishin,
Dave Alexander
