This weather change has been nice and now we are finely getting some rain, and it has turned the fishing on the last few days. There has been an early top water bite that has been good for about an hour and a half each morning, a shad colored Pop-R has worked best for me. This top water action has been on main lake points in 15-25 ft. of water where the bass are chasing the shad to the top. After these bass go down we have been using a 1/4 ounce Jig Head with a smoking shad Fluke, this works great to catch the bigger bass that are suspended. The bass are really starting to school all over the lake and when you get into these schooling bass you can catch them cast after cast. Right now I am keeping one rod rigged with a 1/4 ounce Little George, this is one of the best schooling baits you can have in the boat and you can cast it a mile. When the schooling activity slows down we are switching to a Carolina Rig working the edges of the deeper grass lines and main lake humps and roadbeds. Right now I am using a 1-ounce weight with a 4-ft. leader and a watermelon seed Fluke on a 7-foot medium heavy action Lake Fork Pro Series Rod. Areas that have been productive are the 2946 and 514 roadbeds also the mouth of White Oak, Pinson and Wolfe has been good.
With the above patterns we are averaging 30-40 bass a day. Aug. Sept. Oct. are great months for schooling bass on lake fork

I am now booking fall and spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates! Call 903-629-7699 cell 903-629-5085 or check out my website at http://www.lakeforktexasfishingreports.com
Good Fishing,
