The fishing on Fork is still pretty good if you’re in the right place and doing the right thing. There were a lot of fish that made their move to the banks over the weekend to spawn, so I have a feeling that we are dealing with a lot of post-spawn females right now. Don’t get me wrong, there are still tons of fish that have yet to “do the deal”, and those are the fish that we are trying to catch.

The drop shot continues to be a mainstay in my boat, but the shaky head bite has come on strong the last couple of days. I’m using a 3/16 oz Santone piglet jig head and an LFT Zig Zag in any shade of green. We are working our baits through the stump-filled spawning flats in the 2-6 ft range.
