Posted on the club page before but still looking for a few more non-boaters:


We are a fish friendly type of club. Our co-anglers fish with a different boater every tournament until they have fished with all 24 and then they start over. We generally fish around 22-26 tournaments a year.

Boaters and co-anglers are opponents but generally help each other out so that everyone is catching fish and having an enjoyable day. Below is how we do it. We "paper" the bass, releasing all and recording so the slot fish do count. E-mail me at sjbasser@aol.com for info further info.

Lake Fork Anglers next tournament is Feb 18th & results from Feb 4th

The Lake Fork Anglers 4th tournament of 2016 will be Thursday Feb 18th out of Oak Ridge Marina.

Registration starts at 7:00 AM at Oak Ridge. The tournament starts at 8:00 AM and runs until 4:00 PM. You have until 4:30 PM to bring your score sheets to be scored with payout and "the rest of the story" to follow.

Anglers may go out of any ramp they want too.

Results from Feb 4th:

The water temps at Fork are still at about 50 degrees. Maybe it has the fish confused because even the guides are having a hard time finding fish that want to eat. This morning started out pretty cold at 28 degrees but at least the wind was light.
Today's fish were mainly caught on jigs, chatter baits and square bills, except for those caught in 24' on drop shots. But even though the weather was cold we had a record number of seniors out on the water giving it their best. And for the first time we paid out 5 places plus lunker.


1st place went to Stan Norton with 1 fish for 5.25 which was also the lunker of the day. .
2nd place went to Bruce Allen with 1 fish for 3.64.
3rd place went to Charlie Abresch with 3 fish for 3.34.
4th place went to Jerry Krone with 1 for 3.32.
And 5th place was a 3 way tie:
Bill Ailes, Butch Grove, and Jim Morgan each had one fish that weighed 3.02.

How is that even possible. Because we measure and release, and record on a sheet.


31 fished and 12 caught 15 fish total.

Boat seat drawings are held after the 2nd tournament each month for the following month. We changed the guidelines somewhat at the last meeting to cap the club at 40 members with a waiting list. We also created separate categories for Boaters and co-anglers starting in 2016 each fishing for separate Angler of the year Awards and a place on a Top 6 team. The top three in each will earn those awards.

And as we are now approaching our goal of 40 anglers we are really only looking for non-boaters right now. (We may have to go to 50 to find the right mix and then let it go down to 40 when some leave.) Members must fish with us at least 8 times in a given year to be able to renew to the next year. But if they really expect to fish for angler of the year they will have to do more like 18. Non-boaters have it made. They get taken to good spots, shown working techniques and the right baits. It is a 100% learning experience for $13 a tournament. Which you can then win back.

The LFA fishes every other Thursday daytime at Lake Fork only. Persons interested in joining or fishing as a guest should e-mail me at sjbasser@aol.com.

Here is your opportunity to fish with friendly knowledgeable Lake Fork anglers for the cost of a $5 annual dues and a $13 entry fee. Slot fish count. No teams.

Sometimes Fork is a big question mark. But even though we don't always slay them a few will figure it out and win the money. And then tell everyone attending the "weighin" how, what, and where. What you need to know to duplicate that feat.

Sound like fun. I live to far away and still working so I would not be able to fish for a year or so... But when I retire would the club let the husband fish as a non boater with one person and the wife fish as a non boater with another person? Just wondering and planning ahead for the future. thanks for a reply....

perhaps by the time you get here our "Women's" division will be up and running. So far we have found little interest from women who bass fish to have their own gender based tournament the same time as we have ours fishing the same format and rules all fishing for the same money.

and perhaps the one women who is a member can finally get someone to fish with.

Hey Joe,
How have you been?

Unlike our old club this one has really taken off. We want to cut it off at 40 and we now have 45 with 4 more boater spots promised to our members friends. I just sent an e-mail to get the opinion of our officers on how or when to stop.

I know that is a good thing. Right.

See ya,
Bruce
