David Vanceís Lake Fork Fishing Report
Week Of 11/13/05
The fishing this week has been fantastic, with good numbers of quality bass. The spinner bait bite has been consistent and has produced our bigger bass this week. Yesterday we boated 36 and one over the slot that weighed in at 9lbs. 3 oz. This bass came out of 2 feet of water on a spinner bait. More than half of our fish came on the spinner bait.
The best places for this spinner bait bite are main lake and secondary points and the backs of pockets half way back in the creeks. Right now I am using a Ĺ ounce spinner bait on the windy points, and the pockets that are protected from the wind I will size down to a ľ ounce spinner bait. The best color used was a Colorado willow with nickel and gold blades and a chartreuse and white skirt.
This week the Carolina rig has also produced good numbers of bass in 15-25 feet of water. A watermelon seed Centipede has worked best for me.
Best places for the deep bite has been old road beds and main lake humps. The 515 East and West road beds are producing some big fish.
The forecast looks like a cold front will be here by Tuesday. This cold front should get the bass stacked up on deep water structure. The spoon bite for me has been off and on, more bar fish than bass. The water temp is in the mid 60ís right now. When this next cold front comes in that is when the deep jigging spoon bite should explode! The lake is still about 3 1/2 feet low so be careful running the lake.
This is a great time of the year to be on Lake Fork. Donít miss out on some of the best fishing of the year.
I am now booking fall/winter and spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates! Call 903-629-7699 or 903-629-5085 cell or check out my website at http://www.lakeforktexasfishingreports.com Until next time.
