Late Evening Sunday, Early Morning Monday – 5 Bass

We went to the camp late yesterday and stayed the night. I fished the evening with topwater and caught only two, both about 2 pounds. The mosquitos were so bad, even with Deet, that I had to come in. They were worse than I have ever seen them here. My guess is all of the rain we have had recently is to blame.

I went back out this morning at 5:45, just before sunrise and caught 3 more on topwater (Yellow Magic) by about 7 but I lost them after that. I tried deep, I tried shallow, I tried soft plastics, I tried a spinnerbait… They just seemed to shut off.

Over the next few trips, I am going to do a fair amount of graphing and plotting. I am not real familiar with the summer patterns on Lake Fork as this is my first summer to fish it. I believe the fish on this lake tend to be deeper that I am used to. I need to find those grass lines and structure in 20-30′ of water and work those. I will spend some time finding them using my trusty Lake Fork map and setting those points on my GPS.

The lake was absolutely beautiful this morning pre-dawn. The western sky had an orange glow and the water was like glass. Even though the fish weren’t biting real good, what a beautiful way to start a day!

I have no videos to show you for this trip. I bought a new camera and the wide angle just doesn’t work on the boat, it is not a wide enough shot and the videos looked terrible. It is a very nice camera, a JVC Everio that I got a GREAT deal on at Vanns, but my trusty Sony Cybershot will be the fishing camera.

  1. Your videos keep getting better and better, see you've got cut ins, transitions, borders and stuff. That's all cool, but man, when you sling those big caught bass around to show us, it's SWEEEEET!!! When you drop them in the water for release and I hear them kick splash, it totally brings me there to Lake Fork. You're the next best thing to catching one myself! Keep those awesome videos coming!!!
