Results from Feb 18th:
IT'S ON!! FINALLY UNTIL THE NEXT COLD FRONT ANYWAY. Unlike the previous 3 tournaments this year the fishing were biting on Thursday. Chatter baits, C-Rigs, Jigs and Rattletraps scored a lot of quality fish.
1st place went to Bob Roberts for a limit with 18.27 pounds and a 7.58 which was the lunker of the day.
2nd place went to Stan Norton with 4 fish for 15.00 and a nice 4.83 lunker. Said he missed a real big one.
3rd place went to Kenny Moser with 4 fish for 11.75 and a 4.35 lunker.
4th place went to Rick Harvey with 4 fish for 10.63 and a 4.54 lunker.
5th place went to Randy Steele with 5 fish for 8.3 with a 3.81 lunker.
How is that even possible. Because we measure and release, and record on a laminated sheet.
33 fished and caught 65 fish total. Water temps ranged from 54 to 59 on a warm but very windy day.
Boat seating is determined using two lists for the following month. So that every co-angler gets the opportunity to fish with every boater through out the year. We changed the guidelines somewhat at the last meeting to cap the club at 50 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 50 anglers we are really only looking for boaters who are willing to be co-anglers if we get short on that side. We have 2 openings and then a waiting list will start.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
