Well the heat has finally showed up and Fork and the deep bite has come on strong. Numbers have been good and size as well. Surface temps are 86-88.
Still some surface activity early in the mornings but you better be there by 5:30 am or so to get on them. Spook type baits and poppers working great till after sun up. Look for the birds.
Now to the deep bite. I like dragging a big worm on a TX rig or a Carolina rig I like a 3/8 oz Tungsten on my Tx/Rig and 3/4 oz on my Carolina rig. Hard to beat these two patterns. We are dragging most of the day. Blue Fleck or June bug best colors.
We do mix in my Viper XP Jigs in a few places. My new color Lake Fork Craw is working very well in a 3/8-1/2 oz as well as sourgrape, www.viperxplures.com or Oak Ridge Marina carries my Viper XP Jigs.
Best depths have been 10-16 ft most of the day but if it gets really hot we have caught them as deep as 29 ft. Creek swings and drop off ledges and points have been the key. Use your electronics and start your search in 15-25 ft and you should see them.
My deep crankbait bite has been coming on as well. DD-22, and 6 th Sense 300DD, 6 XD, have been best over 18-25 ft. Again creek channel bends and deep ledges are best. Some humps also working. Best colors shad patterns. Also a few being caught on popping frogs in and around grass and pads way back in the pockets.
Hope this helps you on your next trip to Lake Fork.
