Aransas Pass Bass Fishing Report March 7, 2011

This week on Lake Fork the water is 3 1/2 feet low and the water temp is in the 50’s or higher depending where you are on the lake. The weather for the most part has been WARM and mostly sunny with the forecast for more. What a pleasure! With the low water there are stumps showing everywhere. The low water will concentrate fish. Creeks will be the place to fish shortly when the brim move in. Our grass is hard to find and with that being said the target is wood. This is a target rich environment! To some this is a difficult situation. When faced with all the stumps where do you fish? Structure is the key. Structure is the couture of the bottom. The fish follow and relate to the contours. Fish secondary points that have coves. The other place is creek channels especially the bends in the creeks as these are actually points. With the water low this pattern will be my main target all spring untill the grass reappears. If you catch a fish, fish that spot a couple more times during the day as I have been catching multiple fish. This tells me that these spots are reloading as the fish pre spawn and the best spots will have more fish on the way. In the years past this set up has produced well in numbers and size of fish. As for presentations we have been catching fish with the tried and true Texas favorite the black and blue jig with a Lake Fork Tackle pig claw in black with blue claws. My personal favorite. I caught my largest bass on it weighing in at just over 12 pounds. The jig has always been a big fish bait. Texas rigged plastics is next on my list. Right now a watermelon lizard or creature bait will work. I haven’t been fishing weightless yet but will soon. Also a Texas rigged tube in either b & b or watermelon will be tied on for the remainder of spring. Don’t count out lipless cranks in red or suspending jerk baits as they always work in the spring. Well there you have the straight scoop so get out on Lake Fork and catch a giant! Remember that guides and motels book up early so book early to ensure your dates. Hope this helps on your next trip to Lake Fork and we’ll see you on the lake!
