David Vance's Lake Fork Report
<p>The bass fishing here on Lake Fork this week has been good for big fish and numbers. With the last few days of warm weather, the bass have made a major move to the shallows to spawn. The spawn has started hear on Lake Fork and there was a bass over 13 caught this week. Most of the bass we are catching right now are in 2 to 5 feet of water over the spawning flats. Yesterday we had 27 bass, one that weighed 9lbs. 3oz and one that weighed 8lbs. 7oz. All these fish came on a Watermelon Red Baby Brush hog, the way we are fishing the Brush hog is on a short Carolina rig with a 3/8oz weight.
This week we have also caught fish on a watermelon seed Trick worm fished wacky style. So far with a cooler than usual March, April is lining up for some great spawning action. Lake Fork is full and in great shape water temp on Friday at the end of the day was 60 were we were fishing. This cold front is not going to turn these bass around, this coming week the weather is going to be back in upper sixties and seventies and more bass are going to move in.
One mistake that I see a lot of fisherman make this time of year is fishing too fast, once these bass start spawning there strike zone is small and with a slow presentation you will have a much more successful day. Good places to try right now are the back of the creeks, the west side of Running Creek to the 2966 Bridge, and the East field of Glade Creek, Rogers, and Long Branch, have been very good. I think this April and May we are going to see some of the best fishing, and bass over ten pounds caught in a long time.
