The bass here at Lake Fork are currently being caught all over the lake on main lake structures such as points, roadbeds, humps, and ledges. We have been fishing in 20-30 foot of water and working our baits very slowly through these schools of bass. The best baits for us have been 3/4 oz green pumpkin football head jigs, 3/4 oz carolina rigs with a 2-4 ft leader and a Hags Tornado. Use a 7 to 7 1/2 MH to Heavy action rod and 20lb fluorocarbon line when fishing the jig and carolina rig. When you graph suspended fish cast a spoon or deep diving crankbait through these fish to get them to bite.
On cloudy and rainy days fish a little shallower in 10-15 feet with the same baits. Focus on fishing the south end of the lake along the edges of grass lines. Also a yellow magic topwater bait twitched slowly around the grass and pads will catch some great fish.
Good Luck Fishing!! Feel free to call me with any questions regarding open dates or just some fishing tips to make the best of your trip here on Lake Fork! I hope this report and new video is helpful to all Lake Fork fishing fans. Thank you to all of my customers/friends for making this a great year so far!
