Lance Vick Lake Fork Guide Report 3-10-12

Lake Fork is not the same without green water and grass I’m even missing the gator grass right now … Well thats the fun, challenging part of bass fishing Adapting to the current conditions of any lake makes us better fishermen . While I did not get to fish Lake Fork to much last spring due to being on the tourney trail. Last year there was a real pattern that I could run when I was home worked real well caught plenty of fish and big ones ……This year not as easy .But a couple patterns I have found I would like to share with you . First is Texas rigging soft plastics in water 2 to 4 ft deep in the back of spawning pockets . With a heavy action 7 ft rod spooled with twenty pound flourocarbon and a 3/16 Dominator tungsten weight and a 3/0 or 4/0 ewg hook I am using A Grande Bass grande stick or a Beavr Claws in green pumpkin and black and blue fleck. Last year you throw by a stump and there was a fish there this year i have not found that as dependable but have found that throwing in the openings in the stump fields to be working good and the reason why ? The trunks and tops of all the trees are laying in the openings as lay down logs giving the fish a hard place to lay eggs and stage on. The other pattern is a moving bait pattern in water from 2 to 7 foot deep around the creek channel bends in the back one third of the creeks cranking with square bill crankbaits 1.5 s and 2.5 chartreuse colors and some red ones. Any points with a 45 degree angle or a channel swing have been good to . I have been using 15 mono to crank with a 7 foot med heavy cranking stick. With the new run off the backs of the creeks may set back a week so look to main lake pockets and points for more active fish .There are a few fish out deep on points and humps you can catch them with 6 xd crankbaits
and football head jigs Good fishin to everyone

And we did our share of pest control a couple of days You can catch one of these every cast with a 6 xds or a bomber slab white or chartrese colors They are great to eat you can keep 25 a person Go to the 2946 road by rainswood marina and catch all you want remember each sandbass you harvest feeds more largemouth bass and kills 10 of thousands of more sand bass
