David Vance's Lake Fork Report
<p>The fishing here on Lake Fork has been good for numbers of slot fish. The bass are schooling and when they come up they will hit just about anything that looks like a Shad. The best bait for me to catch these schooling bass has been a 1/2 oz Shad colored Rat-L-Trap, and a Norman Deep Little N, Shad Pattern, and when they come up you can almost catch them on every cast. Most of the schooling activity I have seen has been on the main lake and around the mouth of Little Caney, also the mouth of Chaney Branch at the dam and the bridges, 515 East and West � the mouth of Wolf creek has been very good.
When these bass go down, I am using a Salt and Pepper Grub on a 1/4 oz Jig Head to catch the bass that are suspended. When the schooling action slows down, I have been changing to a Carolina Rig. I am using a 1 oz weight and a four-foot leader, 15lb line. Best baits for me on the Carolina Rig have been a Watermelon Seed Centipede and a Watermelon Seed Double Ringer, water depth 15 to 25 feet.
At the first of the month, the fishing was off and on with good and tough days, but now the bass are in a solid Summer pattern. In the last three days, we have been catching 25 to 30 bass a day. July is always hot, but the fishing should remain good and the patterns will not change much in the next month. And, with not many boats on the lake, you just about have the lake to yourself.
