Tackling Fork's Fabulous Early Fall Bass Fishing Blitz

Tackling Fork's Fabulous Early Fall Bass Fishing Blitz

Kelly Jordon is pretty good at this bass fishing thing, no matter what time of the year it is.

With an FLW Tour win in January, four BASS tournament victories scattered from March until August and a Major League Fishing triumph in October, there really isn't a time of the year where KJ hasn't been successful while fishing tournaments across the land.

And while each season has its own lure and attraction for the Flint, Texas, based MLF pro, Jordon really enjoys fishing during the autumn months, especially on his favorite East Texas bass water known as Lake Fork.

Because when it comes to autumn bass action, these Fork fish just have a difficult time saying no to bait that even remotely resembles a threadfin shad.


“At Fork, we smoke ‘em in the fall,” said Jordon. “You can just crush those schooling fish.”


In fact, Jordon’s best angling day ever – and that’s saying something for a pro with an impressive fishing resume – came during the late autumn period on Fork.

It was on a fall day when KJ literally hammered the bass by fishing a jigging spoon and a Sassy Shad.
