In November 2015 I was fortunate to join more than 90 other top kayak bass fishing anglers at Lake Fork, Texas, for the Tournament of Champions. The Lake Fork Marina and Motel served as the home base and take-off point for the tournament and was a great spot to host.
First of all, anyone who has been to Lake Fork knows it is not close to any town of any size, so having lodging, tackle shop and restaurant all in one spot right on the lake was very convenient. The staff in the tackle shop and motel check-in were great and easy to work with and very flexible on check-in and check-out options. The tackle shop at Lake Fork Marina & Motel was well-stocked with many of the baits and other supplies you could need.
Honestly, the motel rooms were not great, but were cheap, clean, and convenient to the lake – which is the most important attribute. I really liked that you could park and back your yak up right to your door for extra security. There are camp sites and really nice lodges for rent if you have a group. A highlight of the Lake Fork Marina motel is Tiffany’s Restaurant which was a great place to eat and you must try the pie. (Verona Italian Cafe is also nearby and a can’t miss option) All in all I definitely recommend this as a fishing HQ for a trip to Lake Fork.
