Congratulations to Eric Wright & Partner for winning 5000.00 with 8.99lbs
No Overs were weigh in😟 But I do know that 2.34lbs won Bigg Bass
And Smallest fish won 100.00 with a bass weighing .80

Congrats to the Winners!!

It was a hot tough day of fishing.

I have lots of Pics, but for some reason keeps saying. You can only upload jpg or png formats.

Fish-On
Donna

Yes. This was one of the most talented fields I've seen in a while. Congrats to Eric and his partner on the win. Several of the owners, myself included, grabbed a guide since there was not a rule against it. I had the privilege of fishing with guide Richie White. I haven't had a 50 fish (LM bass) day in a long time, but today that is probably a lowball number. All were unders, just not enough of the right ones. Triton was looking for 12" to 16" fish.

Triton did a pretty good job running this thing, especially with it being their first one on Fork. They treated us to AJs the night before, gave out some really nice draw prizes and paid out $15K on 79 entries. I'm already looking forward to the next one.

Does anybody really believe that results like this benefit Lake Fork?
8.99 lbs for 5 fish?
Caught by a "Lake Fork guide" ?
I cannot grasp this thought process.

8.99# is a good stringer on Fork in September.

Not sure what you mean by "benefit Lake Fork", please expound on your point.

Thanks

Lake Fork is the premier Big Bass lake in Texas.
It's pretty simple.
When people outside Texas see these results, they question the productivity of Fork.
I personally can't grasp the concept of competing to catch the 5 biggest small fish, but that's just me.

Triton put on this tournament to benefit triton owners, not lake fork. What is hard to understand.

Use your power and get the slot lifted and then we can weigh in 5 for 35#

Are you mad another guide won a tourney?

Most of the "bigger" stringer tournaments are won with 5 unders, still do not understand how this one tournament will hurt Lake Fork. What truly has hurt the lake is age, a drought and the fact the grass is gone...

I must be the only person to think that Lake Fork is special, and deserves special treatment.
Lake Fork is not faring well right now, and might need a rest from tournaments that target "unders".
As more "unders" are caught and hauled in to weigh-ins, more of them simply don't survive to make it into the protected slot.
The less fish we have inside the slot limit, the less we have above the slot in the future.
It's not that hard of a concept to grasp.

Harvesting of the unders at Lake Fork would actually do it a world of good. The idea behind a slot lake is to protect those fish within the slot for reproductive purposes. Releasing everything that is caught does more damage than good IMO. You end up with too many fish competing for the available food source.

I don't want the slot lifted.
Again, there is 210 lakes in Texas to fish.
Lake Fork has proven it's trophy potential.
Droughts, lack of vegetation, and pressure, have hurt, but at some point, we have to realize that all lakes can be over-abused.
I just hate to see a lake like Fork, be abused and not allowed to recover from nature's cycle.

Harvesting "unders" at Fork would be good, if our numbers were as high as they were when the slot was implemented.
Actually, I was one of the few guides that harvested small fish.
We're at a totally different stage right now.

Have you attended a weigh in lately??

Most the fish being weighed are less than 1.5 pounds. Small fish are a lot more durable than the bigger "unders" and the "overs", from what I have seen over the years.

I've seen more people keep 6+ pound fish out of the water for pics, measurements and to weigh, than I've seen tournament anglers being careless with fish care.

Just 2 weeks ago I saw a "guide" who had his client soaking live bream, keep a 5 pound or so fish out of the water for close to 5 minutes so he could measure it, weigh and take enough photos for a portfolio.

Now do I judge all "guides" by this particular one's actions, H3LL NO! This dude was a DA apparently. So, maybe all tournament anglers shouldn't be negatively judged because they enjoy fishing legal tournaments on a public lake that their taxes pay to maintain the fish population..
