David Vance's Lake Fork Report
<p>October is here and with it comes beautiful weather and great fall fishing here on Lake Fork. The lake is about 3 1/2 feet low but is in great shape as far as the fishing go's and will only get better as the month rolls along. Now that we are on the tail end of the turnover, the fishing will be more consistent and patterns will hold. October and November offer some of the best fishing of the year, I have been catching fish on a number of different patterns and baits this past week. We have been catching fish shallow and deep, yesterday Mark Stone and Jim Freeman from New York fished with me and we put 38 bass in the boat and more than half, came on a Spinner bait and the rest on a Wacky Worm, and a lipless Crank Bait, big fish of the day went 6 lbs 3oz Mark caught her in 3 foot of water on his second cast of the morning what a way to start the day!. Buzzing a Spinner bait in and around cover this time of year is a pattern that will work great all day.
The Spinner bait that works best for me this time of year is a Stanley ¼ oz Chartreuse & White Colorado Willow Nickel and gold blades. The areas we are fishing the Spinner bait have been points and pockets on the main lake and half way back in the creeks, there is a lot of Shad in these areas right now. This time of year I have my best luck fishing a Spinner bait fast, keeping the bait just under the surface these bass are coming up and killing the bait. The grass is making great comeback good places to find grass right now is up in Running Creek all the way to the 2225 Roadbed there is a lot of good Spinner Bait water up in this area right now.
Other patterns that are working good right now are Wacky Worms and Flukes, they have been real productive in the same areas. Best colors have been Red Bug, June Bug, and Watermelon. The deep fishing is starting to turn back on now as the lake is in the tail end of the Fall turnover. As we get to the middle of the month and into November the deep bite will be on! This will be time to break out your Spoons, deep diving Crank baits, and your Swim Baits. Look for the deep fish to start getting bunched up in big schools in 20-30 foot of water to feed up for Winter.
Good places to try right now for the above patterns are Pinson Bay, Little Caney from the mouth to the first pipe line, points and pockets in Running Creek, and the old Brood pond Just South of Sun Eagle Bay, and the Mouth of Indian Creek, SRA point and the first half of Chaney Branch. I always look forward to this time of year it is the start of our Big Bass Season, the weather is cool and the fishing is Hot. So don't miss out on one of the most productive times of year to be on Lake Fork.
