Lake Palestine
Water lightly stained; 87-92 degrees; Black bass are good on Texas rigged worms, jigs, and shakyhead worms. Crappie are excellent on minnows and jigs. Hybrid striper are excellent on slabs. White bass are fair early and late.

Lake Fork
Lake level is .41 low and water temps are 89 t0 92 degrees. The bass fishing has been a little inconsistent lately probably due to the pressure from last weekends tournament. It will get better real soon though. Forecast shows the beginning of Aug. to be a little cooler with the first week having the high of around 90. The best bite for us has been in deeper water on main lake points and humps in 18' to 24' during the day. With the bite a little off you have to keep moving and graphing out there until you find a active school of fish. I don't spend a lot of time in one spot this time of year if they don't bite. It's all about timing finding them when they feed. 10" Power Worms in Blue Fleck on a Tx rig with a 1/8oz. weight or c-rigged with a 1oz. weight and 3 1/2' leader is a good option. Also big worms on 3/4 oz. shaky head. The 3/4 oz. football jig is also working well when you find the fish on the bottom. Santone makes a good one with Pinto Beans & Carrots and Texas Craw being good colors right now. Rage Craws and Zoom Speed Craws are good trailers. There's a lot of baits that will catch them including deep cranks and top water baits early and late but this is my confidence baits right now.

Lake Tyler
Ridges, ledges and humps are holding the majority of the keeper fish and brush piles in 8-15' are holding the bigger fish. Carolina rigs with small creature baits incuding lizards are catching numbers with an occasional big fish. Dark colored 3/4 oz football jigs tipped with twin tailed grubs are also working really well especially when the rig bite slows down. Concentrate in the 8'-15'range. Crappie have been doing well on minnows and jigs in brush piles 15-20ft deep. Make your own website
