Summer Time Fishing Report
Lake Fork is in great shape now that the heat has set in here in Texas. The offshore fishing has really heated up as well. Most of my days are starting off early and shallow with top waters or weightless style shad baits. Most top water action is coming on either a yellow magic or rico shad in some shade of shad color. This bite lasts about 45 minutes then we head off shore for the remainder of the day. During this time I’m targeting big schools of bass on deep water humps, road beds, and brush piles. Using your electronics is key for this. On an average day we have been hitting sometimes as many as 25 different spots through out the day. Also timing is a key. Fish are around most all deep structure but when they feed is the whole key to catching them. In doing this we have been catching them on several different baits. On the deck of my boat right now I will have (not in any specific order) a storm wild eye swim bait, strike king 8Xd crankbait, 10 inch Mister Twister Hang10 worm, Santone football jig, or a Carolina rigged Grande Bass rattlesnake. Let the fish tell you what they want and if they are eating you can load the boat with big ol Lake Fork bass. The two big fish over 10lbs this last week came on a 10 inch worn and a swim bait in 22 foot of water. Hope this helps and good luck when coming to Lake Fork.
