Nice Fish!
I caught one a couple weeks ago on a rattle trap bass fishing.
It was probally a little smaller then that. Didnt want to keep the fish out of the water long so didnt bother measuring it.

Try rapala J-13's Orange is a good start, Firetiger, Perch .. etc.. this is a numbers bait there... also smaller bagleys ( also monster shads and ernies ) and even maybe hot n tot's.. Something about Clearfork is they love smaller baits .. even the big fish.. go bright cause it's usually muddy or stained.. but prism and naturals have worked too.... hope this helps.... good luck !.

you are right, But Clearfork has been known for the little baits even for bigger fish.. Bigger baits will work. I know guys that have caught 50 inchers at Leesville on Sissions.. and thats a Bass bait:T

Lots of guys use rattletraps in the spring and do well when the fish are stubborn

J-13 FIRETIGER 8 TO 9 FOOT OF WATER. ENDED UP LATER IN THE DAY A TRIP TO THE DAMN AND MARKED A FEW SUSPENDED FISH. WEED BEDS ARE ON THE MOVE ANOTHER WEEK OR TWO OF TROLLING THEM BEFORE CASTING. DID SEE A BASS FISHERMAN GET A NICE ONE CASTING TO THE BANK OF ONE OF THE ISLANDS AND THEN A MUSKIE TROLLER PICKED UP ONE NOT TO FAR FROM THE SAME ISLAND JUST AS THE TEMP WAS DROPPING AND WIND DIRECTION WAS CHANGEING. HOPE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO CONVINCE THE WIFE TO LET ME GO FOR A THIRD WEEKEND IN A ROW.

Casting try Bulldawgs... Troll the usual .. Bagleys, Tuff Shad's , Ernies , Grandma's , Mordas baits, Big M... Firetiger, ya cant go wrong with also Orange.. I won't know where they are right now until I get there this weekend.. I'll start shallow and look for baitfish.. Muskies usually aren't far behind... lots of spots and ways to fish that lake...... Saltfork Rules ! ..
