What a beautiful day in the neighborhood! A little wind but nearly none at 7 AM when we started. But like always Fork is full of surprises. On our prefish on Wednesday the big cove was full of bass. Not so much today and we had to go looking again.
Faze 4 is one of three formats put on by the Lake Fork Anglers for it's members so they can fish every Thursday daytime throughout the year without getting bored. The LFA every other week tournament are a points tournament fishing for angler of the year plaques. Hard Core follows the Major League Fishing format with boaters and co-anglers paired together to score the others fish but with all boaters fishing against boaters and co-'s fishing against co's for a cash prize at the end in a championship; and Faze 4 is a team competition where our boater members or members who own boats being paired together so that the weaker boater can learn from the stronger boaters so as to improve. And boy have they.
We began fishing at 7 AM and fished until 3 PM.
C-rig, drop shots, weightless flukes and jerk and crank baits accounted for the bigger bags. Most fish were caught fairly shallow.
The team of Doug Watson and Galen Smith came to the scales with 17 fish, of which the top 10 counted for 19.83 with Greg's 6.03 lunker of the day.
We paper all of the fish. Everything over 10" count.
Second place team went to Don Overstreet and Charlie Abresch with 10 bass for 13.87 with a 1.61 lunker.
Third place team went to Bob Roberts and Jack White with 13 bass for 10.66 with Bob's 1.43 lunker.
For info on joining the LFA e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or PM me on here. We are looking for co-anglers right now but will take boaters who are willing to fill in on the co-angler side when needed.
Even on tough days Lake Fork is one heck of a great fishery.
