Lake Fork Anglers Hard Core (Major League Fishing format) is pretty cool getting to count every fish you catch.
As described below section 1 is all of Big Caney, Section 2 is from where section 1 ends and goes north to the FM 515 West bridge. Section 3 is everything from the 515 w bridge north.
Like the real TV show every fish over 10" counts. You must catch 6 LB + in one of the qualifying tournaments to move into the semi-final. We set it low so most of our members would make to the second level. But there is three ways to qualify. Then in the semi-final on a portion of the lake drawn that morning:
The first ten members to catch 8 lbs will record it on the back of their score sheet and have the other person in the boat sign the sheet and record the time. They will qualify for the finals in November. Which will be held in one of the two remaining lake sections.
What we found out last year in the championship was that the group fishing drew section 3. The rest of the club chose to fish in section one just for fun and they really did good while the champions did not. So starting this year we are rotating the three sections so everyone will spend some time in each. Today they fished section 3.
The first fairly warm day also brought heavy winds to deal with.
First place went to Tim Gold of Mineola with one bass, but it was a BIG OLE 9.12 LB. lunker, that he probably wished he had caught on this Saturday at Mega-Bass. Worth $15,000 for sure.
Second place went to Bob Roberts of Longview with 2 bass for 6.37 with a 5.71 LB lunker.
First place went to John Markos of Paris with 8 bass for 19.41 with THE 4.87 LB lunker.
Second place went to Mac McDaniel of Sulphur Springs with 1 bass for 3.62 LB.
For info on fishing this tournament and others put on by the Lake Fork Anglers contact me at email@example.com or PM me on here. We have openings for both boaters and co-anglers right now. This is a club that fishes only on Thursday daytime. Dues are $5 a year.
All of our tournaments are priced for seniors as follows. $15 entry Payback of $12. Optional lunker pool 100% payback of $5. Optional 100% payback side pot for $10 per person.
In addition to this format that we call "Hard Core" we also fish our regular every other Thursday tournament, and a team tournament all at Lake Fork on a draw style fishing. All of our tournaments "paper" the bass and slot fish count.
If you are as "Hard Core" as some of us you can fish every Thursday like we do. And some Fridays too. And then Opens on the weekend.
Hey we are seniors and we are supposed to be doing something to keep us healthy and our minds sharp and get some vitamin D. LOL At least that is what you need to tell your wife.
