Jimmy Everett Fishing Report 11.13.2007

The warmth has come back. The fishing is changing from a shallow to deep bite almost daily. Once the fish are found the fishing can be productive. Here the last few days the shallow water bite has been the best but once the cool weather arrives look for those deep water hawgs to start biting.

The shallow water bite has been good on a number of different baits. Look for the bass to be in mid creek to the back of the creeks located around grass beds in 2 to 8 feet of water. I have done best on a 5 ¾ inch Gary Yamamoto Cut Tail Worm in watermelon/red with a chart. dyed tail. I am also inserting a ½ piece of a small insert weight by lunker city. This has been deadly around the grass giving it small twitches in and out of the grass with short pauses. In the same areas a texas rigged Gary Yamamoto swimsenko or lizard with a 1/8ounce weight and worked fast over the grass has also picked up some good numbers of fish. Don’t forget on the deeper grass a weightless Gary Yamamoto Senko has picked up some of the better shallow water fish. Work the Senkos very slow for the best results. Same colors on all these baits have been best.

Start looking more at your creek channels in the back of creeks from 6 to 12 feet of water for some good fish. A black/blue/purple or watermelon/red 1/2ounce Strike Works Wood Jig. Flip and pitch to every piece of cover along the creek and pay attention because some of the bites are a little light and maybe just some line movement.

For that deep water action tie up a Carolina rig, a drop shot, a swim bait, and a 6 inch spoon for some good action. Turn on your graph and start graphing those deep water humps, points, ridges, and roadbeds in 20 to 35 feet of water. Look for the bass, barfish, and or shad grouped up in small areas. Once these are located this is the time to break out the tackle. For the fish near the bottom or on the bottom pick up the rig or the drop shot. My best baits for the rig will be a Zoom Super Fluke or a Gary Yamamoto Lizard and once again in the green, browns, and pumpkins with chartreuse dyed tails. Work these baits slowly along the bottom with short pauses for most of your bites. The fish are mainly feeding when found like this so the bites tend to be easy to feel. If the fish you find on your graph seem to be bunched up off the bottom, such as suspended fish, try throwing the swim baits or spoon in a shad or chrome patter through the middle of the school. The best methods I have found are the count down or a cast past the fish and try to bring it through them.

I Still have November 21, 23, 24, 26-30 open for those wanting to get out on the water for some excellent fall fishing here on Lake Fork. I also have December dates open for some excellent fishing on Fork or book your winter time trip for Monticello during December and January. I also have gift certificates available for all occasions. If you have any questions or would like to book a trip give me a call at 903-216-1867 and I will be happy to help you out.

Good luck on the water and be safe,
