David Vance's Lake Fork Report
<p>Fall is here and with it brings cooler temperatures, less fishing pressure and lots of bass that are feeding up before winter sets in. The bass are biting and the weather is beautiful, yesterday Mike Wilson and his son from New York fished with me and we boated over 50 bass ranging from 2 to 7 pounds, what a day it was and one that I know they'll be talking about for a long time we had a blast. Water levels on the lake is about 3 feet low even though we got some good rain this week
Water temperatures are in the low to mid 70's and water clarity is fairly clear on most of the main lake and clear to stained in the back of some of the creeks. The morning and evening bite has been good on top water. Poppers in shad colors or frogs and buzz baits in white have been best for me. The shallow bite has been good on wacky worms around the grass and lily pads, a Trick Worm in June bug or Watermelon Red has done well for me. As the water temps continue to cool, you can expect to see more and more deep schools of bass show up on points, roadbeds, pond dams and humps.
Good electronics are key in finding these deep bass, when they are on these deep spots, I have been throwing a Carolina rig with a 1 ounce weight and a 4 foot leader, with a 3/0 hook, and a Watermelon seed centipede or a Watermelon seed Baby Brush Hog. You will also want to keep a jigging spoon handy as the water cools, jigging spoons and tail kickers can be deadly when fishing for fall and winter Big Bass. Good places to try right now are main lake points and pockets in 3 to 10 feet, also we are starting to catch some good fish on the old road beds 515 East and West, the deep fishing will only get better as we get into November.
It's a great time of year to be on the water the weather is beautiful, and the fishing is Great!!
