Yeah Mark, It is definitely not Ray Roberts. However, Roberts is our home lake so when fishing gets tough we know a few spots where we can go boat a few fish. Admittedly, I think our expectations were set too high because everyone knows Fork is a big bass lake so we just automatically assumed we would show up and catch a few fish without knowing one thing about the lake. I am not a tournament fisherman and today we learned a whole new respect for the guys that are.
Reality is on some days Fork can be about the toughest lake to get a bite on. When you have guys like Marc Mitchell telling you they have bad days out there that says a lot. Even local spares like me that spend most of their time on the water at Fork struggle a lot at times.
Just clear your mind and get back at it next chance you get. Fork will give up one of those days that is magical and get you coming back again and again.
