Bass Spawning On Lake Fork
<p>The spawn is in full swing here at Lake Fork! For those of you that are looking for the opportunity to catch a Bass of a lifetime, this is the time of year to do it. There are a lot of big Bass up shallow right now just waiting to be caught. Here are some tips for catching these big Bass,
key areas to focus on right now are in the backs of the creek and points that are next to the spawning flats. Creek channels leading to these flats will produce good results. Bass can be found in a number of the many creeks and pockets on the lake right now. The Bass have exploded into their spawning ritual this year and can be found on beds just about everywhere. Finding the areas that are holding the most concentrations of Bass is the main objective.
The lake is full and in great shape, the water clarity is clear to slightly stain in most areas. The recent water temperatures have been ranging anywhere from 62 to 67 degrees in the areas that I have been fishing in recent days. Bass can be caught a number of different ways during the spawn. My clients and I have been catching the majority of our Bass on weightless rigs or slightly weighted when it is windy. A Trick Worm has been my "go to" bait lately. These baits are deadly when fished slowly over and in the grass where these Bass are making their beds. Best colors have been shades of watermelon, and green pumpkin. Fishing it very slowly, with short twitches in between pauses, works best. Flukes in watermelon colors are also producing good fish right now. Sight fishing is excellent on days when there is some sun and not too much wind. So keep your Flippin Rod ready for when you see a big Bass sitting on a bed.
Today Ken Viscount from Pennsylvania fished with me and what a day he had. He broke his personal best three times with one over 6, a 7, and the Big one of the day that went 9lbs 6oz, all these bass came on the Trick Worm. Good places to try right now are Searcy Branch, Alligator Cove, Ford Cove and Chaney Branch.
