Was wondering who all has fished this before? I've herd it is crazy the amount of boats that are on the water. Is this true? Is it literally boat to boat?

Favorite lake and I've been saying I'm gonna fish that tournament for the last two years but something always comes up. Hopefully this year haha. So I haven't fished it but know plenty of people who have. Yes it's crowded but said to be a very well run tournamment. My plan is to stay away from the "community holes."

Crowed every year and last year there was a boat that sank in the boat lane from taking on waves from passing boats.

Yes many times, even got a 6th a couple of years ago. Yes many boats. Heard all the horror stories but most people around me have been courteous. Running the lake is the issue so pay attention. This year lake will be really high even though letting water out. So haven't made up my mind yet!

I have driven down from Missouri since 2009 and fished it. Every year had a great time. Altho I never got to cash a check, my brother has a couple times out the back of my boat. I keep telling him it is the boat positioning that keeps paying off for him.
It is crowded but still easily fishable. The boat lane gets a little crazy at times, but would guess that is not uncommon.
Unfortunately can't make it this year. But was able to substitute that trip with the Legend tourney on Fork a couple weeks later.
looking forward to my first time on Fork.
