Lake Fork Bass Fishing Report July 29, 2004

Lake Fork has been a little fickle as of late. We can catch them one day and not the next. Mostly due to the cold front and unusual weather we have been blessed with. My shallow fish have made a retreat to the depths where they are suspending and are a little tough to catch but will bite on their terms. We have been catching our suspended fish on swim baits and weighted shad assassins. We have been checking 10 spots a morning and the fish will bite on maybe two. For the fish that you find on the bottom relating to structure Carolina rigs with French frys or ring frys in watermelon have been the best for us. These fish on the bottom have been the ones that will bite best for us. The shallow fish, what is left of them are grass related. Jigs have been the best in pumpkin green with a watermelon pig claw. The water temp is 80+ water level is down maybe a foot and clarity is good. As I write this it is raining and cool. This week the fish might come back into the grass with the cool rising water. I am on vacation the rest of the summer chasing the NHRA drag race circuit so reports are going to be inconsistent from me but I will check in when I can. I am now booking October trips. October fishing can be the best of the year as the fish move back into the creek mouths and put on the feed bag as the first cold fronts of the fall cools the water back down to their liking.
