Over 27,000 acres in size, this Eastern Texas reservoir is home to some monster largemouth bass. With 60% of Texas’ top 50 largest bass were caught here, it’s a formidable hunting ground for dedicated and entry-level anglers alike. However, getting a piece of that action takes preparation.

Get ready for a successful day on the water with baits proven to catch more fish. The Berkley scientists have collaborated with local Lake Fork anglers to understand what baits work best as the seasons, and thus the fish's preferences, change. We’re helping you take the guesswork out of your bait choice so you can increase your catch rate on Lake Fork all year round.
