The past two weeks have been cold and windy. Today we saw a high of about 74 and light to moderate winds from the southeast. Reports say that the 1/4 oz. rattle trap is working in the deeper flats, but fishing is tough right now. If you are going to use a rattle trap, use the 392 Bleeding Craw color in the 1/4 ounce size. The fish seem to be staging in grassy flats waiting for the time to come in and get the beds ready for the spawn.
Soft plastics worked through the grass are also producing as well as anything right now. A fluke in the watermelon seed color is good right now but it’s just a little bit too early. We need a few weeks of warmer weather, and that is what is on the agenda.
Get your tackle box ready. Make sure you have everything you need for your trip to Lake Fork.
