October is here and with it comes great weather and most days cooperative bass. The month of October offers lots of options.

First off the shallow water. There's always lots of bass shallow in October. I personally like fishing the major creeks with grass and around the creek channels. Lake Fork has many creeks so just move creek to creek till you find fish. Some will hold good numbers some won't. I personally prefer depths where the flat is 1-3 feet and the creek is 6-8 in October. But move up and down the creek till you find the bass and always be watchful for birds and schooling activity. All kinds of lures can be productive but the old standbys like Texas rigs, spinnerbaits, topwaters, and square bill cranks are hard to beat.

The deep bite also is good in October especially the later part of the month. I prefer mainlake points and the mouths of the creeks where the channels are around 25-30 and they hover around tree lines or come out of the woods into a big flat. Always be watching for schooling in these places as well. Here swim baits, drop shot, Carolina rigs, tail spins, and spoons will produce.

If you love the outdoors and bass fishing this is a great month. I still have availability including this weekend October 7 and 8. Call me anytime 903 780-0680
