he was talking about the guide could block out the back imagines so other guides wouldn't fine out, but that's not the reason they don't post pictures. they don't post pictures because the other guides who may have seen them on the water will know where they were and go to the area and fine the fish. This makes it harder for people to fine their fish if they don't even tell anyone they are catching till weeks later.

Biggest for me 43-44#'s. Fork with Kerry Stafford in the early-mid 90's. Swimming lizards in the back of Searcy and Glade. That was all before lunch as a storm approached.

Went in to Minnow bucket for lunch. Someone asked Kerry how we did, he said "About 40 fish, best 5 over 40#'s."

I was standing in the hall waiting on the bathroom. A guide in line says, "Kerry Stafford is a lying MF. Nobody is catching them like that". I told him I was with Kerry and asked if he wanted Kerry's Card. He shut up after that. LOL

Best 5 in a tourny, 33.5 last spring on Sam.

Nice to see you back, Cam. But really, how many big fish did you catch at Fork that very few people even knew about?

Kerry put us on 'em real good, too, on a mid-90s trip. Our best 5 wouldn't have cracked 30lbs., but we had a 55+ fish day of 3-6 lbers. Ahhh, the good ol' days at Fork smile

Correction...Kelly was flattered that I gave him 9 lbs. His best 5 weighed 54lbs. 11oz., all weighed at The Minnow Bucket, December 13, 1995. The top 10 that day did weigh 101lbs. They were caught on spoons and the big salami. In 32'-40' of water. Sorry, it sux to get old and forget details. In my defense, it was a long time ago.

Cool trivia...SRA was setting channel marker buoys in the area that same day.

Good night.








Thanks for the correction.
I remember that.
Pretty impressive to have 5 that average 10 1/2 apiece, and 5 more that average 9+ apiece.
I never heard what the big fish was that day.
The smallest 5 is what is remarkable due to the fact that not a single fish in this 5 could weigh over 10 1/2 lbs.
5 fish weighing 46 lbs with the biggest weighing 9 something, is a ton of near clones.

Fouzman seems to have left this alone, but after calling me out, I haven't.
Since he has a direct line to Kelly Jordan, I wish he would address this.
What was the big fish in the top 5 (54-11) of the 10 that weighed 101 lbs?
I'm pretty darn good at math, and can figure out what the bottom fish could be, and what the top fish in the bottom 5 (46.89) could be.
I just want to see if my math is correct.

Two over 11 and three over 10 in the top five. Nothing under 9 in the 10 that weighed 101 lbs. I left it alone not because of you but because of the azzhat that likes to belittle a Fork guide.

I'll have to re-do my math
My numbers were wrong.
Rounding it hundreths, it should've read 54.75 lbs lbs top 5, and 46.25 lbs bottom 5.
Trying to keep the smallest fish in the top 5 heavier that the largest fish in the bottom 5.
Thanks.
When I read the 63 lb 5 fish stringer it caught me off guard.
My best 5 combined over 30 years only weighed 68.40 lbs.

Amazing number for your top 5 ever Mr McCarty.
Something to be proud of for sure. Very strong work over time!!

I have no dog in this hunt but I have been in the lodging business here on Fork since 1993 and can tell you which guides are straight shooters, which guides add a few numbers and pounds to their catch and which ones flat out lie. I've had guides drop my customers off and tell me that they had 30 only to visit with my customers and find out they had 4. (true story) Some of these guides are some of the biggest "names" that have ever guided here. On the other hand, some of the guides that are not "stars" are much better guides and much more honest about what they have and are catching. (Some of the "names" are some of the best as well)

One of the things that I have learned by being in the business of fishing here on Lake Fork over the past 25+ years is that fishermen will believe anything. My uncle also taught me that when he was guiding on Toledo in the early '70s. They are looking for a hero and are totally unrealistic in their expectations. Chasing a ghost. There have been a lot of remarkable fishing days here on Fork since she opened. However, we have to use a measured amount of skepticism when we hear the next remarkable fishing story. It really boils down to two words.....Fishermen lie. There is no magic spot. There is no magic lure. There is no fishing magician who always catches them. BTW my best 5 on Fork weighed 100. Do the math on that McCarty. lol

I think you put 1 too many zeros in your best 5.
Honest mistake.
