David Vance's Lake Fork Report
<p>Not much has changed since my last report the lake is about two and half feet low but in great shape. The bass are schooling early and late in the day. The fishing is still one day to the next, one day you will catch 35 and the next day have a hard time catching 15 that's the way it has been this summer, it's all about timing on these schooling bass hit the right spot at the right time and you can load the boat. One good thing the size of the bass we are catching right now has been great! Yesterday Jim Wilson from Austin fished with me we had 21 for the day and Jim landed the 2 biggest of the day that went 8 lbs 9oz and 7 lbs 6oz he caught these 2 big bass on a DD22 on the first pipeline in Little Caney The top water bite has been on!! for the first three to 4 hours of the morning. the best baits for me has been a shad colored Yellow Magic, and a Zara Spook, & a Swim Bait. Most of the bass we have caught in the last few days on top have been suspended in 30 to35 feet of water, the bass are running the shad to the top early in the morning, after about 10am, the top water action starts to slow down.
After the top water bite slows I have been changing to a Carolina Rig, and a DD22 this deep water pattern has worked best for me the rest of the day. At this time I am using a one ounce weight with a three to four foot leader line size 15 pound on a heavy action rod. A watermelon seed super fluke & a watermelon red Brush Hog, have worked best for me on the Carolina Rig. Good places to try are the mouth of Little Caney, SRA point, and the ridge left of the dam to the first point, also the tire reef on Chaney point, and look for schooling bass on all the bridges right now. There are still fish being caught on shallow main lake points, on Wacky Worms and Texas Rigs, but the deep water pattern has been the most consistent for me Right now.
