Lake Fork

Water Temp: 75 - 78
Water Clarity: Stained

What an unfortunate thing to happen to all who fished The Annual McDonald’s Splash. The lake turned over earlier in the week. Tuesday the lake looked terrible in many areas, but by Thursday it was beginning to look better. Turn overs this time of year can make for some tough fishing. Numbers were great most of the week, but I really think the wind made it tougher than having the bottom come to the top. I did run into one of my customers this weekend and he had won in two different hours during the McDonald’s Tourney. I’m sure I had more do well, I always have.

Lake Fork is well over 4 feet low and probably closer to 5 feet low. Just be very cautious the lake.

Fishing has been pretty good for the last couple of weeks. Starting off with june bug frogs (Scum Frogs & plastic frogs) and white, white/chartreuse buzz-baits early in the morning. Then after that there are many different ways of catching a lot of fish. It really depends on how you want to fish? Bandits & Rat-L-Traps fished over the edges of hydrilla is working very well. However, if chunking and winding is not what you want to do then finesse techniques and light-weight Carolina-rigs with LFT baby ring fries in watermelon & watermelon candy are working. Weightless baits such as a watermelon LFT magic shad in watermelon, fishing is through the grass is picking up several fish as well as the others.

As for where we’re fishing, we’re fishing all over the lake. From main lake banks all the way back to the backs of the coves and creeks. I realize this report is very short and to the point but this is what the fish have been responding best for me and my customers.
