Most of my friends know how I love to hate on Fork, esp for tournaments.
But every once in a while, she rewards you when you don't expect it.
My brother ghosted me this morning (we were going to go to Palestine) so I decided to go run some stuff on Fork for a couple of hours..
Started on a point with grass and managed a 6 and an 8 is on a frog. Better to be lucky than good.
Moved to flipping some deeper docks and managed to pick up 6 solid unders flipping a shaky head once the sun came out. Fish were in about 8' of water. Did this for awhile, moving around the lake but it was only a fish here and there.
Decided to head in and find some a.c..
I shut down and was idling under the 515w bridge and noticed a few fish blow up around a piling. Grabbed a square bill and for the next 20 minutes or so, caught 3-4lb fish on every cast. They quit. I quit and loaded up.
I also might have found a new way to combat "that" dock owner...
I was flipping a dock on the main lake when the owner came down and started yelling at me to get away from his dock . I ignored him and kept fishing, which apparently caused him much distress.... so he came down on the dock and told me that if he wanted all of us "@*#^^^$> bass guys" fishing his dock then he wouldn't have surrounded it with hardware cloth.
I didn't feel like arguing with him so....... I looked at him and told him that he could quit bothering me or I would go home and post GPS coordinates of his dock all over social media and his dock would become the most popular location on the lake.!
He dropped his head and went back to the house..... sorry guys, I'll hold up my end of the deal and am going to withhold the coordinates. (For now)
All in all, a pretty entertaining trip this morning. It's hot boys but keep grinding, they are still biting some.

She is fickle. It’s days like that - that make you go back 6-10 times maybe more of no bites or 1 bite where you ask yourself can I even catch fish anymore? She’s so fickle but she is such a worthy mistress. I’m in da
Club. Love me some Fork.

I took a trip to Mother Forker this weekend from Austin. Was supposed to meet Slade but he was under the weather. Fished Friday evening from 5:30 to about 8. 6 fish all on cr except for one nice 6 pounder just before dark on a Zara Spook. 2 were fat unders and 3 slots. Sat fished first light to about 2. It hit about 103 at 2 and I'd had enough. Tried to fish deep all day. Caught 2 fish. Yesterday got on the water at first light. Caught a 4 and a 3 on a chatter bait. Then a heavy 2 on a Zara Spook. Not another bite after 10 am. I'll say this. Even if they ain't biting what I'm throwing, the bass at Fork are eating plenty of something! They were all fat and healthy! Off the lake at 2:30. I'd rather get skunked on Lake Fork than deal with all the wave boats and idiots on our "fun lakes" in the Austin area. Hardly anyone at any of the ramps yesterday at 2:30 driving back to where I put in. I love that water color!! E. Texas baby...

If I have to fish Fork outside of the months of March, April, May, or June it's because I'm preparing for a tournament that I can't talk my son out of fishing. Those poor fish that move offshore just get beat to death by mid June. Late Summer and Fall are just brutal out there. Fork may be the worst Fall fishing lake in the entire Unites States of America. Even most of the guides that call Fork home don't fish out there in the Fall. Will be interesting to see how the Elites do in November. There will obviously be some big bags, but those guys will quickly realize they are dealing with a completely different lake than they are accustomed to in the spring.
