Loc: Lake Fork, Texas
August has been hot hot hot with 100 degree days and barely any wind most days. I'm doing this for anyone coming to the lake in the next couple weeks. Most people I see sitting on deep structure dragging a rig or throwing a big spoon. These fish have been hammered for the past two months. My biggest piece of advice is think outside the box right now. Go shallower. Most of the fish we are catching have been in 12 foot of water or less. Mind you most of my trips have been split day going from 6-10:30 taking a break then going back out at 4-dark. The shallower road beds are also producing some good fish. Yesterday we had 12 fish come off a road bed on 13 foot of water.

Best baits for me the last couple weeks have been a Mister Twister 10 inch worm in Plum or the zoom 10 inch worm in blue fleke. Also keep a big spook like a yellow magic Havana or storm wild eye swimbait ready for when the big girls come up chasing a gizzard shad. Also a lighter C rig with a fluke or Grandebass rattlesnake will get you bit as well if you like throwing a rig. If you don't get bit in the first 15 minutes move. The fish will let you know if they are there. Most of my trips we are running at least a half tank of gas or more and going from one end of the lake to the other. Hope this helps and saves you guys some time and headache when coming to Fork.

This is a heck of a good guide and a really good person. He helps out people he barely knows. If you get a chance to fish with him, you would be foolish not to do so.
