The Lake Fork Anglers Twice monthly results for March 22nd were even better than the last one. And the big girls are up shallow! Weather was fair to good medium winds. The fish that were caught mainly came on drop shots, wacky rigs and bladed jigs.
Lake Fork anglers format is a draw style paper tournament where slot fish count. All fish are measured, recorded and released on the spot year round.
Each boat has a boater and a co-angler.
Only the best five count.
1st place goes to Rick Green with 5 bass for 13.38 lb and a lunker of 2.88 caught on a Texas rigged brush hog.
2nd place goes to Tim Gold with 3 bass for 12.56 lb. with an 8.23 lb lunker.
3rd place went to Jim DeVore with 2 bass for 10.77 lb with THE 8.52 boater lunker. He said the big one got away!
4th place went to Galen Smith with 5 bass for 9.15 with a 2.61 lunker.

The LFA fishes every Thursday during the month on three different format. The as described LFA twice monthly format where there are declared cash winners fishing for "Angler of the Year" points and plaques.
On another Thursday we have what we call Faze 4 which is a drawn team tournament fishing cash, while putting aside money for an annual benefit to the winners of a 2 day championship held in December. Members must fish 4 F-4 events during the year to qualify for the championship.
On the 4th and 5th Thursdays members fish what we call "Hard Core" which follows the Major League Fishing TV show format where every fish you catch counts. Like MLF members we try to qualify for the semi-final that will be held in Sep by catching at least 6 LB in any of the qualifying tournaments'
In Sep members those that have quailified are paired and the first ten to catch 8 lb have then quailified for the championship in Oct.
Winning members are rewarded with "Bass Fishing Innovations" plaques and a cash benefit.
Not all of our 50+ members fish every week or even all three formats on a regular basis. We are seniors and fish when we have the time. But we do have a core group of about 36 that fish on a regular basis. And because we are mostly seniors we are adamant in making sure there is always two anglers in a boat. Both for safety and for sharing ,learning and making an enjoyable day of it.
Annual dues is $5 and tournaments are $15 with $12 paid back. There is an optional $5 lunker pool and an optional $10 big bag pool.
