Lake Fork Anglers Results From August 4

I'd sure like to tell you a story about today's fishing. But unfortunately, the fellow I was going with couldn't raise the motor enough to get the toter off. After much stuff Perry at Service marine in Emory figures it out to be the relay that control the switch. But they don't work on E-Tecs and John took his boat to Rockwall.

The story on the water was all about the haves and have not. Them that caught'em did really good with big fish and big fish stories of the ones that go away. The rest not so much.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...

Fishing Report from TPWD (Sep. 21)

GOOD. Water Stained; 78 degrees; 6.06 feet low. Water has warmed back up with the weather. This has slowed the topwater bass bite. Bass are fair early mornings with spinner baits and flukes in 2-4 feet of water on windy points, or 5-7 feet of water if there is now wind. Carolina rigs and shaky heads best around timber on the drops on points and ridges with flukes and 7 inch worms. Shaky heads are good with 4-inch june bug finesse worms, with a few catches using square bill crankbaits. Afternoon has been fishing fair with mid running crankbaits in 7-12 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guide Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Lake Fork crappie fishing has been heating up this past week. We are seeing solid limits of bigger white crappie stacking up on trees in 18-26 feet of water. Getting some brush pile fish to bite as well on some days in 12-18 feet of water. Laydowns are loaded with black crappie most days, but slow to bite. Minnows continue to be the most productive baits, but hand tie jigs are catching some fish. Soft plastics should begin to produce as the water temperature drops for the fall months. Report provided by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
