Gary Johnson's Fishing Report November 26, 2017
Lake Fork is a little over a foot low and the water temperature is in the low 60’s. The bass on Lake Fork can be caught in many different ways and our numbers have been good but the big ones have been a little tougher to catch. There are still plenty of shad located midway back in the coves to the very backs of the coves. Best baits have been sexy shad 1.5’s and rattle traps for these fish. The last two hours of the day seem to be the best for these fish. There are also fish located on extended main Lake points in 12-20 feet of water. We are catching these fish on 3/8 ounce jigging spoons. We are locating these fish on our Lowrance electronics, marking a weigh point or just dropping a buoy and fishing vertically right under the trolling motor. The third way we are catching fish is using a Carolina rig and fishing secondary points in 5-20 feet of water using watermelon baby brush hogs with a 3/4 ounce weight. Once again, we are catching lots of small fish and this is a great time to bring a beginner fishermen out to the lake and experience some success.
I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake Fork. If you are looking for a professional guide trip and a great day on the water, please give me a call at 214-205-0540.
