Lake Fork Bass Fishing Report October 21, 2004

This week the fishing on Fork was good. The wind made it impossible to stay on the deep fish so we went after the shallow fish. We caught a dozen in the mornings under cloudy skies and as the clouds burned off so did the bite. We caught our fish on top waters and small crank baits over grass on secondary points and the back of creeks. We caught about 50/50 on each bait. The fish were pushing the shad to the back of creeks and blowing up frequently. This is one of the normal fall patterns. For the deep fish we could get to they seemed to prefer a Texas rigged blue fleck Power worm or a tail spinner. Jigging spoons also caught fish deep. The yellow bass are showing up in large numbers and if summer would leave us the Giants will appear on structure and start the winter feeding frenzy. Use your electronics and find you a wad of bait and fish and go to work. Drop a marker in front of your boat after you get set into the wind. This method as opposed to dropping the marker on the fish will allow you to present your bait without spooking the fish by dropping the marker through the school and you won’t tangle when you catch a fish. Also it shows you where to keep the nose of the boat so you can fish the structure you have marked. The lake is down a couple of feet and the water temperature warmed back up to 74 degrees. The grass is green and the lake is in great shape. This week the Bald Eagles and coots started to show up so the summer weather will be gone soon. It appears the Indian summer is waning. This is a great time of year to visit Lake Fork as there is so many patterns to fish you won’t get bored. Best of luck and be careful out there. I am booking December and next spring but I still have some November dates. ]If you would like to book a trip call or email me at 903-765-2155 Please shop at Bass Pro Shops through the link icon on my web site at as I get a commission on all sales.
