Fork sandies disappear ever summer. I think the move out to deeper timber and suspend making them harder to find and fish for. they should be showing back up on points and humps now that the water is cooling off. When the water gets in the 50s deadsticking deep water with rock.
April though june is best times on Fork.
I fished a bass tournament last weekend. Caught 5 Blacks that weighted 6.75 lbs (paper tournament). Our best 5 sandies was over 10 lbs lol.
