The water temperature on Lake Fork is in the high 60's to low 70's
with a cold front coming in the next couple days. The lake is about two
and a half feet low. Our numbers continue to be solid with an occasional
big fish mixed in with the smaller fish. Our best pattern has been all
about locating the bait fish. We start looking for the bait fish about
half way back in the pockets and working our way all the way to the back.
Our search baits have been chrome rattle traps and Storm's Wild Eyed swim
shad. We are also using our electronics to locate these schools of bait
fish even though we are fishing inside ten feet of water. Find the shad
and the fish are mixed in with them.
Our afternoon bite seems to be
much better than our morning bite. Our bigger fish have come from the same
areas using Texas rigged creature baits flipping underwater stumps. These
two patterns have been producing for the last couple of weeks. Even though
the cold front is approaching and the water temperature continues to drop,
these patterns should hold up for a little while longer.
