Veteran Lake Fork guide Larry Large (www.huntingeasttexas.com) joins Luke today and discusses white bass fishing at Fork. A decade or so ago, white bass were extremely scarce at Lake Fork but in the past few years, these prolific spawners have gained a strong foothold. Savvy anglers like Large are still catching plenty of largemouth bass but now, there is an abundant "food fish" that is usually more than willing to bite!
