September is here and its the start of our Fall Bass fishing, Lake Fork is about 6 foot low that?s not a big deal to the bass, but to the boaters that do not know the lake it is, you just need to be Extremely! careful when running the lake right now. If your coming to fish the Diamond Sports Marine tournament or the Big Bass Splash this month the fishing should be good! As far as getting around on the lake, all I can say is be careful and don?t get in a hurry to run from one spot to another, its always better to be safe than sorry. Other than the low water the lake is in great shape and the fishing has been good and will get better as the month rolls along.
Yesterday Bobby York and his daughter Katie from Dallas fished with me and we put 25 bass in the boat and more than half came on a swim bait and the rest on a Lip less Crank Bait. Bobby caught the The big bass of the day, and it was a giant!! and his personal best, this bass was 25 ? inches long and weighed 11 lbs and 2oz Great job Bobby on a bass of a life time!! The bass we are catching have been suspended in deep water and they have been running shad to the top. The Swim bait that has been working best for me is a 1/4oz Storm Wild eye swim shad, they have the jig head in them and ready to fish right out of the pack and they do not cost much only $2.96 for a three pack and they work great. The top water bite has also been good when the bass are running the shad to the top, best bait has been shad colored Yellow Magic.
Good places to try right now for the above patterns are, the mouth of Dale creek, Chaney branch, and Main Lake points, also the bridges in big and little Mustang, the bass are schooling under most of the bridges right now and if you are there at the right time when they come up the action can be nonstop and you can load the boat!! I always look forward to this time of year it is the start of the fall Season, the weather is going to start cooling down and the fishing is going to be Hot! So don?t miss out on one of the most productive times of year to be on Lake Fork. Book your trip now and get in on some of this great schooling action. You can reach me at 903-629-5085
