The first of the larger tournaments for the fall is over. Lots of bass caught and the biggest complaint from most anglers was that they kept catching those big slot bass that they couldn’t weigh in! It’s a shame that catching 6 – 8 lb. bass doesn’t help in a tournament, but it sure is fun catching them and makes for good stories at weigh in. Not to mention these bass produce lots of fry in the spring.
We are catching bass in all depths of water right now. With this cool off things should start really hopping. Most of our deep bass in 18 – 25 foot are coming on dropshots, Texas rigged worms, Carolina rigs and jigs. All of the above techniques will catch a big on on Lake Fork, you just never know. Its pretty amazing how many big bass are caught on a 5 inch worm on the dropshot.
The shallow bass we are catching are on topwaters, flukes, and wacky worms early. We are also starting to see some schooling bass at the mouths of creeks. The fall movement is not far off with the water temperatures being 78 degrees.
We will try to update in the next week or so with pictures. We still have some open days for anybody that wants some insight for the upcoming tournaments or to just go have some fun. Let’s get setup for a great fall trip for some big bass!
