Image+3Dennis Sheley is a resident licensed guide on Lake Fork with over 29 years experience. Thank you for visiting my website. After 29 years guiding on Lake Fork, I have decided its time to retire. I will still be taking Crappie trip in October and November, and in the spring April and May  but not on weekends. I would be very happy to find a guide for you. Bass, Catfish or Crappie, I know the ones that know what there doing and the ones that think they do. I mean no disrespect to anyone by saying this but if your going to pay someone 40 to 50 dollars an hour, its nice to be with someone your comfortable with. Please feel free to call me anytime for updated info on the lake.  Im only glad to help. After all it is about you, the customer.

dennisberkley02Lake Fork, Texas holds 15 of the top 20 Texas State Record Largemouth Bass.  It is comprised of 27,690 surface acres, situated in Wood and Rains County in Northeast Texas conveniently located between Sulphur Springs and Tyler, Texas.   A 5 bass per day limit can be kept, consisting of 5 fish under 16 inches or 1 over 24 inches, and 4 under 16 inches.

The limit on crappie on Lake Fork is 25 per person per day with a 2 day possession limit. Crappie must be over 10 inches to be legal except during November, December and Januray.  During these months, all crappie must be kept. This is because when crappie are caught from deep water their bladder ruptures and they can not return.

In the spring and fall, trips need to be confirmed as early as possible. Lake Fork is a very busy lake during these two periods and we {as do the lodges} will book up quickly. Our full day will start at first safe light, break at lunch, and return to the water till about 4:00. Later if the fish are biting!!!!! A $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the day of fishing.  Should circumstances arise where you won't be able to make the trip on the day(s) you have scheduled, you may change the confirmed date(s) and the deposit will be applied to the new scheduled date(s).  We are happy to book bass, crappie, or catfish trips for you on Lake Fork.  We can supply all the equipment you will need through our fine sponsors.
