Terri Moon Lake Fork Report September 2009

It’s September!  Do you know what that means?  FALL is just around the corner!  Now that gets me excited.  Hands down, it has to be my very favorite time of year to fish!  They are already predicting cooler temperatures in the next few weeks.  That’s just a bonus!  In spite of the warmer temperatures in August, the fishing has been quite good.  So, if we have a cooler September, the fishing should be awesome! 

Now as far as the fishing, watch for surface temperatures to start to drop and get ready for the fall frenzy.  The water temperature is the key factor to getting the shad to move out of the deep watyer.  The shad will move up to the flats and secondary points so be sure to watch for schools of shad.

This is why GOOD electronics are so important.  It can make the difference between a poor day of fishing and a GREAT day of fishing.  I still take a few hours a week and just go graphing with my Lowrance LCX-10HD.  This gave me a better idea of what the fish are doing.  Early morning or late evening, the crappie will start showing up in 5 to 15ft. of water.  But as the day heats up try looking a little deeper in the 15 to 25ft range.  Look for structure near creek channels, flats and humps.

The colors that have been working are green w/ blue tail and cinnamon w/ chart.  Now as far as the bream, we’re still finding them in 8 to 12 feet just off the bottom using crickets or worms.  September means its time for the McDonalds Big Bass Splash out of Lake Fork Marina again.  So if you get a chance come by.  It’s a good time to see the latest fishing equipment.  Shimano and Lowrance will be there and it’s always exciting to see what they have come up with!  So, hope to see you there.  Don’t foreget- it’s time to renew your fishing license.
