For the last few weeks I have been splitting my day up with a morning trip on Holbrook before fishing the afternoon & evening on Lake Fork. The fishing on Lake Holbrook has been awesome. Today we had around 50 on a half day trip and this little lake has some good one's in it.
The bigger fish have been caught on a 3/4 oz Football-Head Jig (PB&J/Mexican Heather) and the numbers are caught on a Drop Shot with 1/4 oz weight with a #1 rigging hook. When these fish are coming up to school, I will throw a weightless fluke (White). A lot of these fish are in the 2-3 pound range and we've had some 5-6 pounds with the biggest fish so far going 8 pounds. Here are a few from Holbrook. Lake Fork
For me the fishing on Lake Fork has been fair to good. The water temperature has been starting out around 82 and warming up to 87. I have been having to run around a lot to stay getting bit and we are averaging 15-25 fish on half day trips.
I have a few spots in the mornings and evenings where I am finding solid numbers with a few nice fish and some really good under's. We are still working on getting the bigger fish though I am seeing an improvement. I am finding the numbers out on main lake points in about 10-15 foot. The Drop Shot has been my best bait. I am using a 1/4 oz weight with a #1 rigging hook set at 16''(Junebug /Red/ Mardi Gras)
Where the larger fish have been on Lake Fork has been stuff like roadbeds, humps, points and pond dams in about 24-27 foot. I am throwing Storms, Football-Head jigs ( PB&J/Mexican Heather) and have also caught a few on the 10XD (chartreuse / blue back/ sexy shad)
I will be out on Fork in the morning and will try and update this post for the next couple of days. I hope this information will help some of y'all coming out to fish.
