Current lake level is .02 below full pool with water temps in the low 80's. This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. I find this time of year to be a more consistent bite in the afternoons (2pm to Dark). Very important to put your electronics to work and locate fish. If I do not see fish I move on for the exception of brushpiles.I never graph brushpiles I intend on fishing, I find it best to take a few cast in them.

I am currently focusing on off shore structures like extended points, humps, roadbeds and brushpiles. A dropshot is an excellent choice for all these conditions. On my dropshot I am using 30lbs braid with a 20' shot of 12lbs flouro using 2/0 gama superline offser paired with either a 3/8 or 5/8. My baits of choice are trickworms in CA420 or Redbug. This is a heavy duty dropshot rig but had my heart broke to many times getting to finessey with this setup. Another great choice is either a 3/4 or 1oz jig. I pour and tie my own jigs using the poisontail head and a heavy weed guard. This jig comes through the brushpiles and trees far better than a football head. I use the jigs in heavily wooded points and the heavy guard makes a huge difference (be sure to fan the weedguard). My colors off choice is Crawdad (greenish / orange) and Bama bug.

The other go to for me is a 3/8 to 1/2 shaky head paired with a 6 green pumkin senko or Brushhog. If your looking to book a trip to Lake Fork I would love the opportunity to earn your business.

Tight Lines!
