Loc: Lake Fork, Texas
With the crazy weather we’ve been having, the fishing can be good on some days and tough on others. We had 13 fish yesterday on a half day and missed quite a few as well. I am starting to see the numbers get better the last few trips and the pattern is starting to change. With all this water we are getting Lake Fork is setting up for a fantastic fall season. As of this post, the lake is at 403.67 and water temps are around 82-84 and rising.

Shallow Bite

Before all this rain I was able to get up in the backs of a few creeks catching them in 1-5 foot on wacky worms, weightless flukes, frogs and Limit Getter Spinnerbaits. I’ll be back up there as soon as the lake starts to settle.

Mid-Depth

Most mornings I am starting out in 12'- 13' throwing a drop shot with a number #1 hook or owner nose hook with a 4 inch finesse worm. This has still been my most productive pattern. The darker colors have been working better for me such as (Junebug) and (Candy Bug). I’ve also been throwing a Carolina Rig out in 12' - 20' with a standard size fluke in (Watermelon Candy) and (Watermelon Gold) using a 5' leader. We’re catching some nice fish as well on a Texas Rig or a Wobblehead with a big 10 inch worm. ( green pumpkin) and (June bug). The Wobblehead seems to work better out in deeper water.

Deep Bite

I’m still catching some fish in 20 -22+ foot but these fish are suspended real bad and so I am only getting them to bite during the afternoon hours. We’ve been catching these fish on a Joe Spaits Flutter Spoon mainly. It seems if I can get them to start chewing on the spoon, then I can also get them to bite a weightless fluke. (Disco Violet)

Schooling Fish

I am always leaving a chrome spook and weightless fluke (disco violet) tied on for when we run across schools.

Running

For those who are coming out, we will end up seeing a lot of Lake Fork because of the amount of running we’re doing in order to catch these fish. If you are coming out on your own, I hope this report can help y’all catch a few and please be safe out there. If you would like to book a trip, I would love to have you out and get you on some fish.

Thanks, Eric Wright 972 757 7947

That's how a fishing report should be written. Great job, E! thumb
