Lake Fork Bass Fishing Guide – Jason Smith
We have been lucky enough to experience the amazing bass fishing at Lake Fork with professional bass fishing guide Jason Smith aka BassSmith. Jason, has been fishing Lake Fork since 2001 and has won many fishing tournaments at Lake Fork and he know how to put clients on BIG bass.
From Jason: For me, fishing Lake Fork is all about the challenge of being on the water, one on one with the fish, catching them in their habitat and knowing that next cast could be a double-digit fish. It is hard to say that about many other lakes in the country. I love being able to take my customers out and put them on the fish of a lifetime and also to put them on good numbers of fish. I will work hard to make this happen, so your experience on Lake Fork will be a memorable one. When you leave my boat, I want you to feel confident in the techniques that we used to catch fish. So if you want to go out to catch numbers for a pre-tournament trip or target a trophy fish of a lifetime, give me a call.
