Fishing Report: September is here and it is the start of our Fall Bass fishing. Lake Fork is in great shape right now a little low but thatís not a big deal for this time of year, and the fishing will only get better as the month rolls along. The water clarity is fairly clear mid lake to the south end.. I have been catching bass on a number of different patterns and baits this past week. The shallow fishing has been best for me lately in depths ranging from 2-10 foot. With this cool cloudy weather we have had a good Spinner bait bite with numbers of good solid bass.
Today we put 33 bass in the boat and more than half came on the Spinner bait and the rest on a 1/4oz lipless Crank bait . Fishing a Spinner bait over the grass on these cloudy days this time of year is a pattern that will work great all day. The Spinner bait that works best for me this time of year is a Stanley ľ oz Chartreuse & White Colorado Willow Nickel and gold blades. The areas we are fishing the Spinner bait have been points and pockets on the main lake, there is a lot of Shad in these areas right now. This time of year I have my best luck fishing this Spinner bait fast, keeping the bait just under the surface the bass are coming out of the grass and killing the bait.
Other patterns that are working good right now are Wacky Worms and Flukes, they have been real productive in the grass as well in these same areas. Best colors have been Blue Fleck, June Bug, and Watermelon. We are also catching some good fish on a Carolina Rig on the out side of the grass. Yesterday John Haber and his son Drew from Minnesota fished with me and they got the lake fork experience times 2, Drew caught one that went 8 lbs 4oz and his dad caught one that went 7 lbs 6oz these 2 bass were there personal best and both came on a Carolina Rig in 10 foot of water good job guys.
Good places to try right now for the above patterns are, the mouth of Chaney Branch, points and pockets on the main lake, and the mouth of Big and little Mustang. I always look forward to this time of year it is the start of the fall Season, the weather is cooling down and the fishing is Hot. So donít miss out on one of the most productive times of year to be on Lake Fork.
