Texas Bass Fishing

Texas bass fishing. That phrase conjures up visions of fishing rods bent over double trying to land a big "hawg".

The state of Texas has more bass lakes than any state in the U.S. A few of the bass lakes in Texas are legendary, such as....

Lake Fork has a reputation for producing big bass.

The lake covers 27,690 acres and almost any lure will work at various times of the year.

On weekends the lake gets a lot of boat traffic because it is only a couple of hours drive east of Dallas.

So the best time to fish is during the week or after dark when the boat traffic has died down.

Lake Fork offers RV parks, a Bunkhouse Motel and Cabins at this website... lakeforkranchresort.com

Lake Sam Rayburn covers 114,500 acres and has been one of the state’s best bass lakes for a long time.

The creeks feeding into the lake are loaded with standing and fallen timber.

It has most everything you would want in a big bass lake.

It is located in southeastern Texas and receives a lot of fishing pressure on the weekends.

The main part of the lake is not the best bass fishing area.

To find the best bassin action you have to fish the many coves and creeks full of cover and vegetation.
