We have been on Fork for 3 Days, struggling a bit but have caught a few good ones

Seeing tomorrow is heavy winds, we are looking to drive an hour to a smaller lake that we may stay a bit out of the wind and also maybe catch some

Any help would be great and will give an update after for sure

Thanks

With a south wind, Bob Sandlin or Cypress Springs offer plenty of protected coves. Fish Sandlin if you like timber, Cypress if you prefer boat houses. The water there should be a bit clearer also.

We have boat lanes chips for Fork. Is either safer or I guess, possible without one? After fishing mostly tomber at Fork, we like the sound of docks actually in the water.

Thanks again guys, now getting excited again instead of preparing for a tough go of it at Fork again.

Cypress is the easiest lake around there to run!

Cypress is wide open but was 30โ€ low 2 weeks ago with only about 1/2 the docks with good water under them. Half our group struggled throwing spinnerbaits, chatterbaits and watermelon or green pumpkin, other half hit the jackpot with jerkbaits or bulk/blu jigs.

Sandlin has main lake timber, itโ€™s shown if you have Navionics chip, coordinates for running can also be found on this site somewhere. Sandlin also has plenty of docks in certain coves, water level is good.

Drive to Athens. Tons of fish up shallow and wind is never an issue.

A small sleeper lake that fishes good in the wind is Tankerslery near Mt. Pleasent. Docks, no grass some deeper points and good ramp. Easy to run.

Cypress Springs. It runs east to west giving you one whole side of the lake that is protected by big pine trees.


"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.
