WEEKLY FISHING REPORT
FROM: J & M Guide Service
What a great week to fish here at Lake Fork, TX. During this week we had warm weather all week. It got a little breezy on Saturday and Sunday but we were able to keep on fishing. The water surface is a solid 75 degrees but the water on the Fork side stayed stained due to the wind.
The Large Mouth fishing was very good, with a lot of fish being caught on small crank baits such as the KVD 1.5 in the shad color (silver & black) pattern. Fish up to 10 pounds were taken with the little crank bait this week. With the Summer pattern already starting, we found the ¼ oz shaky head jig also was working. We used a V & M pencil worm in watermelon/red color, it worked the best with the olive color shaky head. You need to fish it slow and once in a while bounce the shaky head off of the bottom. This allowed for a lot of action. Oh yes, dip the tail of the worm in some chartreuse dye, for maximum visibility in the stained water.
The White Bass were biting really well. They could be caught by using a chrome/chartreuse spoon or an Alabama rig. White and chartreuse shad were the best trailers for the Alabama rig. You could catch 3 or 4 White Bass at one time. This rig has revolutionized the White Bass fishing industry!
The Crappie fishing slowed up this week. The Crappie are scattered out and headed back to the deep water around bridges.
Catfish fishing continued to be good. They were mostly caught on cut bait.
