Gary Johnson's Fishing Report August 29, 2017

The water temperature on Lake Fork is in the low 80's and the lake is full. Our numbers of black bass have been down this past week with the cooler weather. However we are catching some good fish in the slot like the seven pounder we caught yesterday which was only 23 inches long. The fish we are catching are stacked in small schools on the drop offs. Sometimes the drop offs are in 10 feet of water and it drops quickly to 16 feet. In other places we are fishing in 18 feet and it drops to 25 feet. The fish are right on the drop off. Good electronics are a must. I use the new Lowrance Carbon units. I really like the new screens which eliminate glare from all angles even with polarized sunglasses. The clarity and resolution are much improved over previous units. Give me a call if you want to see them in action on the water. Best baits this past week have been a Carolina rig with watermelon baby brush hogs with the tails dipped in chartreuse dip n glow. We are still using a drop shot in these areas but that bite has decreased this past week. Our best activity has been in the afternoon from 3 till dark. I hope these tips help you on your next trip to Lake Fork. If you are looking for a professional guide trip and a great day on the water please give me a call at 214-205-0540. I still have plenty of good dates left in September and October.

Until next time, good luck and good fishing.
Gary Johnson
