The Ray Hubbard Bass Club had our seventh members only tournament last Saturday August 12th on Lake Fork. The day dawned as a typical August Texas day. By 7:00AM, the sun was hot, the humidity was up and the breeze was non existent. 39 boats hit the water. As many had been saying the fishing was tough for almost everyone. Fork is a different tournament lake because of the slot of course so tactics and techniques were radically different. It was strange seeing almost every boat with at least one spinning rod in use. Then about 2:00, a big thunderstorm came rolling in with heavy wind and rain, lightning and thunder. It's been a crazy summer weather wise. At the end of the day, our winners were Warren Whitaker and Jay Messersmith with a two fish stringer! One of those fish however was a 7.92 over that put them over the top and also got big bass of the event. Here are full results and pictures
On hand to weigh fish for us were David Mulkey, Paul Spann and John Bruner
Paul and Big John fished together. Here's John with one of their two that went 2.14
David Choate fished solo and had four fish for 3.44, but that included our second biggest bass of the day, a 2.16. Here's a great example of tournament fishing on Fork...
Ed and Tyler Ham had four for 3.98
Here's Kasey Bunch who fished with Dad Kenny. They had four for an adjusted 4.51
Russell Olds and Matt Jackson had a limit. Their five weighed an adjusted 5.55
