I'm out on lake fork right now and I've never been good at fishing offshore so I'm trying to learn. I'm marking fish but I can't seem to get them to bite. Help!!

Are you sure youíre seeing bass? Can you take a pic of your graph (no gps).

Try casting from different angles. As a matter of fact....mark the fish and cirlce them stopping at increments to fan cast at them

Didnít get on the water until 1 but managed 15 or so with three between 6 & 8 lbs. All on c rig flukes on a 5 ft leader in 18-22 fow. Itís been a timing thing. Spot I am hitting has been best 2-5 lately.

My last trip with Eddie Garrett we had a 9.45 and a 10.20 but it was 4pm and blazing HOT when they bit. We caught some fish earlier off several deep spots but nothing over 4# until 4 pm. It was downright pleasant until about 3pm. We had clouds and a nice breeze. But the bigguns didn't bite until the sun popped out and got hot.

Iím feeling the Fork Blues as well. Definitely marking bass in different locations anywhere from 18-30 fow. I have yet to catch an offshore bass at fork. Iíve probably tried 3-4 different times since I got my boat. Itís become very very frustrating. Iíve found some decent shallow water bites in the evening but Iím really wanting to learn the deep bite.

Definitely feel the pain...Went with a guide yesterday who has been killing them deep and then the day I show up, they aren't biting anything. On top of several good groups but they had lockjaw. Not even finesse stuff would work. Some days are diamonds and some days are coal. Go figure...
