The wind over the weekend and through Monday made it hard to stay on the deep fish, after a few waves over the front of the boat it was time to bail on the deep bite, and that is were the action is right now, here on Lake Fork. From Tuesday on all I can say the fishing in the last two days has been as good as it gets!! And with this warm weather it will stay good, looks like we have some colder weather coming in next week but who knows this is Texas and the weather can change from day to day. The deep bite continues to become much better and more consistent, the bass are bunching up more and feeding on the big schools of shad and bar fish, I have found most of my bigger bass holding in 25 to 30 feet of water on the old road beds, humps, and main lake points. The midday and evening bite has been best, Today Mike Lawson and Danny Stone from Florida fished with me and from noon tell dark the action was nonstop we put over 50 bass in the boat, Danny caught the two biggest of the day and on back to back cast a 7 lb 3oz and 6 lb 8oz most of the bass we caught were in the 3 to four pound range, these numbers are not a everyday thing but not uncommon this time of year if you are at the right place and right time what a Great day!! All the bass we caught came on a Jigging Spoons and a Little George.
For this deep water bite your electronics will play a big key as to how successful your day on the water will be, watch for balls of shad and bass stacked up on the screen, and also watch for the birds if they are working the water you can bet they are on a big school of Shad. To catch these deep bass I have been using a ? oz Jigging Spoon and a ? oz Little George, also a Smoking Shad Fluke on a 1/4oz-Football Jig Head, also a Carolina Rig, I am using a 3 to 4 foot leader, and a 1oz weight. Dragging behind it on a 3/0 hook will be a Watermelon Seed Super Fluke or a Watermelon Seed Baby Brush Hog. Good places to try right now, all the roadbeds are holding bass 515 East and West 154 and 2946 are always good this time of year. Also the roadbed and old Bridge in the mouth of White Oak Branch, and the roadbed at the mouth of Big and little Mustang are good place to start.
December is an excellent time to be on Lake Fork There is less pressure on the lake and it is the start of our big bass season and you can have the opportunity to catch a bass of a life time, And for you bird watchers I have seen at lest 4 to 5 Bald Eagles a day a lot of Eagles on the lake right now.
