Great Fall Bass Fishing On Lake Fork
<p>The Fishing here on lake fork has been good this week. The deep bite continues to become much better and more consistent. The bass are starting to bunch up and I have found most of my bigger bass holding in 20 to 30 feet of water. And in these same areas the bass have been schooling big time, and some of these bass are in the 5 to 6 pound range. The best places for me have been humps, points, ridges, and roadbeds.
Your electronics will play a big key as to how successful your day on the water will be, watch for balls of shad and bass stacked up on the screen. To catch these deep bass I have been using a Carolina Rig and a Smoking Shad Fluke on a 1/4oz-Football Jig Head. On my Carolina Rig I am using a 3 to 4 foot leader, and a 1oz weight. Dragging behind it on a 3/0 hook will be a Super Fluke or a Baby Brush Hog, my best colors have been Watermelon, and Watermelon Candy.
You can play with different variations of speed during your cast, they seem to hit it best moving it slowly. The bite has been very aggressive so it is easy to tell when you get a bite. A drop shot is also taking some good numbers of bass. I have been fishing it with a 12 to 24 inch leader with a Trick Worm or a Fineness Worm in Watermelon, and Watermelon/Red.
Shallow water is still producing some good fish, the bass have been stacking up along the grass beds. The best depths have been 2 to 4 feet. If you like top water fishing the bass have been very aggressive. The Frog bite has been good also; Stanley Ribbet or Frog type baits have been excellent around the grass.
Yesterday we had a great day right before the front we put 47 bass in the boat and two were over seven pounds. More than half of these bass came on the Carolina Rig and the rest early on a Trick Worm and a Yellow Magic. Good places to try right now are the tire reef off the SRA point at the dam, the old road bed at the mouth of Chaney Branch, the road bed at the mouth of Wolfe creek, and the 515 East road bed. These areas always produce good bass this time of year.
I always look forward to this time of year. The big bass are starting to turn on and it is a great time to be on the water.
