bass fishing

Luke Clayton

 Howdy Folks!

In this weeks version of High Plains Outdoors, Luke takes us to Lake Fork to fish for white bass with his friend guide Seth Vanover www.lakeforkcatandcrappie.com. Seth is usually fishing the Sabine River this time of year for spawning white bass but the river is currently almost out of it's banks which making fishing tough.

The whites at Lake Fork are in pre spawn mode and biting like crazy. Seth and Luke will show you what to look for on your graph when targeting winter "whites" and, how to catch them.

 White bass are in pre spawn and holding tight to bottom now. A small Rat L Trap or slab worked very slowly within inches of bottom is the ticket to some fast paces action.

Well, howdy there folks!  It's big bass time on Lake Fork in East Texas.  As a matter of face, it's not just big bass time, but it's trophy bass time!  This week, I'm talking with guide Seth Vanover about the most effective method of catching trophy largemouth bass.   

Seth has perfected his method of catch and release.  He has Lake Fork Cat and Crappie.

Howdy Folks!

I tell you what, I wish we would have had 30 minutes to talk with Jason Barber about deadstickin last week, so I've done the next best thing.  I've brought him back again this week.

Deadsticking is a term used for fishing a bait, usually a soft plastic but not always, very slowly during the winter months when water temperatures are at their lowest. When the water is cold, fish become lethargic. They must eat but they prefer a meal that remains somewhat stationary rather than something they must chase down. Thus the reason that 1.5 inch soft plastic shad imitations held motionless near the top of big schools of white bass provided so much excitement at Cedar Creek Lake last week.
