Lake Fork Bass Fishing Report July 6, 2005

This week on Lake Fork the fish are on the bite. The lake is down just over a foot and the water is like a bath tub, from high 80’s to low 90’s. We have been catching them early on top waters and then we have been on the edge of the grass with dead stick baits and jigs. Next we go deep with Carolina rigs and drop shots on structure. Swim baits and yo yo big spinnerbaits or large crank baits in shad pattern can work for the suspended fish. Watch for schooling fish as this is a typical summer pattern on Lake Fork. I throw a lipless crank bait or a top water in shad pattern past the fish. This should get better and better as summer rages on. I have been fishing only 1/2 am’s but if you can handle the heat the afternoon bite has been on. Stay deep until late and look for the fish to move up and fish like you would in the am. A word about Texas summers. Wear your sunscreen and drink lots of WATER. A hat and dark polarized sunglass like my Costa Del Mar’s are mandatory to kill the glare. If you get dizzy or get a headache get to the shade and drink more water as you are becoming dehydrated. Good luck and we’ll see you on the lake. I am fishing only 1/2 am’s as the heat is on.
