Results from Mar 3rd:
There were a bunch of guides complaining how tough the fishing was today. And with that 30 MPH northwest wind it was a bit of a b t h. But our anglers still managed to catch 57 fish of which there were a bunch of slots. Senkos, C-Rigs and drop shots accounted for most of them.
1st place went to Jack White with a limit of 14.42 pounds anchored by the 7.41 lunker of the day.
2nd place went to Bob Roberts with 3 fish for 12.16 pounds and a 5.80 lunker.
3rd place went to Mac McDanile with 5 fish for 8.65 with a 3.48 lunker.
4th place went to Kenny Moser with 5 fish for 8.22 and a 4.31 lunker
5th place went to Jeff Wilkerson with 5 fish for 8.03 with a 2.98 lunker.
6th place went to Ken Williamson with one real nice lunker of 6.64.
7th place went to Bruce Allen with one Ok slot that weighed in at 4.64.
This was the first time we paid 7th places because we had 42 anglers fishing. Out of 50 possible that's pretty good.
How is that even possible. Because we measure and release, and record on a laminated sheet.
Water temps ranged from 58 to 63 on a warm but very windy day. It is almost ON. The males were roaming so you know the females are not that far behind.
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 have reached our goal of 50 anglers we have 2 anglers on the waiting list.
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.
