Lake Fork Pro Guide John Morris of J&M Guide Service with a 9.7 bass caught April 26, 2012

DATES: 12 – 19 September 2021

It was a great week to get back to work after the summer heat break. The water temperatures were still in the mid to upper 80’s. The water clarity was just perfect, a little stained, for good Bass fishing. This week we had a mixed bag of techniques to choose from including the Carolina rig, Texas rig and the wacky rig. We also had a good frog bite early in the morning. Let’s get started with the wacky rig. We mainly fished heavy grass with the wacky rig. We used a plum apple V & M Pork Pin with a nail in the head of it. We fished in in heavy grass very slowly. The next is the Texas rig. We used a Zoom plum Mag II worm in 5 to 8 feet of water on short creek ridges, old pond dams and lily pad fields. In the afternoons, we moved out to 14 to 18 feet of water on pronounced creek bends and main point ridges. We used a Zoom plum Mag II worm on the Carolina rig.

The Crappie fishing was just fare this week. 18 feet of water and old trees were the key ingredients for success this week. The good ole minnow rig was the best way to catch them this week.

The White Bass went back on their diet this week. We did notice that there several schools of White Bass schooling off of main lake points about 10:00 in the morning. You might want to keep a chrome and black Rattle Trap tied on to catch a few schoolers.

No Catfish report this week.

On our equipment list this for 2021 season is our Ranger 520c powered by a Mercury 250 Pro XS from Nichols Marine in Longview, TX, Duckett rods, ABU Garcia reels, Stren line, Strike King hard baits, V & M and Zoom soft plastics.
