Report Submitted: 7-25-18

Welcome to Lake Fork

Lake level is 1.66 low and water temps are 87 to 90 degrees. The bass fishing has been a little off this past week. But this happens periodically this time of year. It will get better real soon though. Forecast shows the beginning of Aug. to be a little cooler with the first week having the warmest day being around 98. The best bite for us has been in deeper water on main lake points and humps in 18' to 24'. With the bite a little off you have to keep moving and graphing out there until you find a active school of fish. I don't spend a lot of time in one spot this time of year if they don't bite. It's all about timing finding them when they feed. Our drop shot bite has been a little off lately also for numbers so I'm concentrating on the larger baits. Xcites 10" Raptor Tail in Blue Fleck on a Tx rig or a Talon 10" worm in Plum Apple with a 3 /8 oz. weight or c-rigged with a 1oz. weight and 4ft. leader is a good option. Also big worms on 1/2 oz.. shaky head such as the Xcite 10.5 Maximus which stand straight up is a good bait. Also a 3 /4 jig will work dometimes. Santone makes a good one with Pinto Beans & Carrots and Texas Craw being good colors right now. Zooms Fat Albert Twin Tail, Xcites Raptor Tail Jr. and V&Ms mud bug are good trailers. There's a lot of baits that will catch them including deep cranks and top water baits early and late but this is what we're doing right now. If I can be of assistance and you need a guide please contact me. We will be fishing out of my new 2017 921 Phoenix boat. Email or call my cell @972 979 4850. More info @

Good fishing,
