This has been a fantastic year so far for big bass here on Lake Fork. However, our overall numbers of fish have been lower. That wasn’t the case this week! We had good numbers and some really nice fish as well. I’m still catching fish shallow but some big ones are already showing up deep. I believe the key to our success on the better days has been covering a lot of water and hitting productive spots a few times throughout the day. Letting an area rest and replenish for a couple hours is adding to our numbers considerably.
I’m checking deep spots every afternoon and already graphing some wolf packs of bass on deep structure. Over the next several days I expect more fish to migrate to these areas. The shallow bite should remain consistent for weeks to come with all the shallow vegetation and normal lake level.
Here are some nice ones we caught on recent trips.
