Video - Lake Fork Bass Tip - How to Fish a Bladed Jig / Chatterbait

Hello fishing friends, on Lake Fork many healthy largemouth bass are being caught on secondary points and in the backs of large spawning flats in 2-5 ft. Due to the recent cold front the water temperature is once again in the mid to high 50s. During these fronts some fish will pull out of the shallows but most will stay put and become a bit more difficult to catch. One of my favorite lures for pre-spawn fronts and water temps in the 50s is a bladed jig / chatterbait. This lure puts off a lot of vibration and is especially productive in stained to muddy water. This bait triggers big fish to bite so make sure to match your gear properly. Check out the above video to see more tips on how to effectively fish this bait next time you hit the lake. Thanks for watching, good luck fishing, and stay safe on the water!

Largemouth bass are good. Early morning bite in water depths 2-5 feet using Z-Man chatterbaits. The mid morning bite is in 10-15 feet of water and the bream beds using Carolina or Texas rigs, 10-inch worms in blue or green flake.
