The bass fishing continues to be good hear on Lake Fork. We are already starting to see some changes in the weather and with the recent rain storms that are popping up just about ever other day, conditions are starting to cool down a bit. We are catching good numbers of bass, you can load the boat right now if youíre in the right place when these bass come up schooling. The water temp at the time of this report was about 83 degrees on the main lake. In the last few days both shallow and deep patterns are working. The shallow bite has been good working the edge of the grass lines early. The best bait for me has been a Wacky Worm, Watermelon & June bug have been the best colors. By mid morning the bass are starting to school and the best bait to catch these schooling bass for me, has been a ľoz. Chrome and Blue Rat-L-Trap and a 1/4oz Little George, you can cover all depths with this bait. When these bass go down I am still using a Smoking Shad Fluke on a ľoz. Jig Head. Most of our bigger bass have come on the Fluke, also I am starting to catch some bigger bass on a 1/2oz White Jig with a White Salty Chunk Trailer. When the schooling slows down I have been going to the Carolina Rig, best depth has been 15 to 25 feet on main lake and secondary points. Best bait for me on the Carolina Rig has been a Watermelon Seed Fluke and a Watermelon Seed Centipede. I am using a four foot leader with a 1oz weight, 15 pound line, on a 7 foot medium heavy action Lake Fork Pro Series Rod. Good places to try are the mouths of the major creeks, Chaney Branch, the Tire Reef off the SRA point, Hobbs Point, and the old 2225 road bed are producing good numbers of bass. We are catching 25 to 30 bass a day using the above pattern. The fishing will continue to even get better as we head into the Fall Season. Look for there to be a lot of small bass up close to the grass while most of the bigger bass are still in deeper water for now. As conditions cool down over the next few weeks the bigger bass will start to move up. The Fall fishing here at Lake Fork can be some of the best anywhere, so don't miss out on some of the upcoming best bass fishing of the year.
