This cool weather has been great, with nighttime temperatures already starting to cool down, the water temp here at Lake Fork is from 82 degrees. Lower water temps mean that the Bass are starting to get more active. This past week the Bass fishing has been good. We have had a good early morning Spinner Bait bite. This time of year I like to throw a 1/4oz Colorado Willow, Nickel and Gold blades, with a Chartreuse and White skirt. In the last few days we have been starting out fishing main lake and secondary points, covering the edge of the grass lines. Best presentation for the Spinner Bait has been fishing it fast, just barely under the surface of the water. Our best day was Monday when the front was coming in we had 45, and one that weighted 8lb 4oz, most of these bass came on the Spinner Bait. Also we are still catching some good fish early on a Wacky Worm. The best color for me has been a June bug colored Trick Worm, fished weightless on the edge of the grass lines in 2 to 4 feet of water.
By 10am the bass have been coming up schooling. Best bait for me to catch these schooling bass has been a 1/4oz Chrome and Blue or Bleeding Shad Rattletrap. When they are up you can catch them on just about every cast. A lot of the bigger bass are suspended under the schools of Shad. I have been using a Smoking Shad Fluke on a 1/4oz Football Jig Head to catch these bigger Bass. The schooling activity has been off and on throughout the day, and when it slows down I have been switching to a Carolina Rig, with a Watermelon Seed Baby Brush Hog. I am still fishing the Carolina Rig with a 1 oz. weight and a 3 foot Leader on a 7 foot medium heavy action Lake Fork Pro Series Rod. Good places to try right now are main lake and secondary points, there has been a lot of schooling Bass under the 515 West Bridge, and also the old 514 Road Bed in Birch Creek has been good. With all the rain we have had this Year, Lake Fork is in great shape. By the time we get into early October, the Fall Bass fishing will be in full swing. I love this time of year with good weather and great fishing.
