John Morris Weekly Lake Fork Report July 21, 2013

FROM: J & M Guide Service

The surface water temperatures continued to rise in spite of a few rain showers this week. The temperatures went from 86 to 88 degrees. The Bass fishing remained good all week. We caught most of our Bass on “The Tackle Factory” chrome/chartreuse and chrome/blue flutter spoon in 26 feet of water on old road beds. The worm bite remained slow with a few good fish being caught early in the morning in 10 to 12 feet of water around sharp road bends. A few good fish were being caught on deep running crankbaits like the DD22’s.
The Crappie fishing is still good around all of the bridges on the lake. Minnows were still at the top of the Crappies favorite food chain. It was nothing to catch a limit of Crappie in two hours. The best water depth is still 26 feet.
The White Bass are feeding early in the morning and again around six in the evening. They were getting picky on their diet this week, wanting mostly large minnows. A few 3 pound White Bass were being caught on the chrome/chartreuse flutter spoon during the midday period.
The Catfish fishermen were still enjoying great fishing. 35 to 40 good eating size were being caught in the mornings using stink bait and cut liver. They were also being caught on trout lines using cut bait. The tight line fishermen found the 20 to 22 feet was the best water depth to catch fish in.
“Take a kid fishing”! The large Bream (Blue Gill) are really biting. Crickets are the kids best bet on catching a lot of good quality fish in 10 to 12 feet around any old stumps.
Hey guys and gals have you put off buying a new bass boat? Well don’t put it off any longer. Get on down to Nichols Marine in Longview TX and check the Nichols Edition Ranger 520c. It is loaded with such things a HSD 10 in the console, HSD 8 in the bow, custom cover, Hamby’s keel guard, and it is powered by a Mercury 250hp Pro XS. What a beautiful boat that would make anybody proud.
Do you need crickets or minnows while you are at beautiful Lake Fork? Well look no further than Lake Fork Marina. They have good quality bait on hand all of the time. Don’t forget to pick up plenty of water and ice while you are there.
