Quick Fork Report 5-14-2018MORNING BITE
I've still been chasing the shad spawn on main lake points early in the mornings. Seems to me the bite starts to die off around 9-10 in the morning. Overall the mornings have been really good with numbers and we are catching some larger fish on top water baits which is always a lot of fun. My go to baits have been either a Spook or Underspins.AFTERNOON BITE
After about 9 or 10 in the morning, I am starting to move out to deeper water. We haven't run across any mega schools of bass yet but have been catching a few off each spot. When I'm fishing out deep, I set the boat up in 25 feet of water and cast to about 20 feet. The baits I am using right now have been a 1 oz Carolina rig with a 5' leader and a #3 rigging hook. I have also started to throw a Storm swimbait (bunker) and some 8XD (chartreuse blue back).EVENING BITE
The last few evenings have been really good starting anywhere from 6 to 7 pm and the fishing holds to around 8:30. Here we are fishing top water, Underspins, Carolina rigs and the drop shot right before dark. These trips are are an incredible deal and we always have a lot of fun.
I hope this report can help y'all catch a few fish on Lake Fork and for those of you looking to book a guide trip with me in June and July, I still have availability and would love to get you out on the water.
