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.

Today they fished section 1.

We are trying something new by changing ours hours slightly trying to beat the triple digit temps being forecasted. Registration is now over at 5:15 AM and fishing starts at 5:16 AM. So, conceivably if you plan it right you can be on the water and at your starting spot before the sun gets up and there might be a top water bite.

So for the boater winner catching all of their fish before it got light paid off using swimbaits and rattle traps.
Boaters:

First place went to Bob Roberts of Longview with 17.76 lb. on 9 fish with THE 6.40 boater lunker.
Second place went to Tim Gold of Mineola again with 5 bass for 10.92 with a 4.31 lunker.
Third place went to Dennis Bubinas of Lake Fork with 7 bass for 6.61 anchored by a 1.21 lunker.
Fourth place went to Charlie Abresch of Hawkins with 3 bass for 4.57 with a 2.19 lunker.
Fifth place went to Don Overstreet of Sulphur Springs with 3 bass for 3.39 anchored by a 2.19 lunker.


Co-Anglers

First place went to Tom Charlebois of Tyler with 4 bass for 12.94 with THE 6.40 Co-Angler lunker on a lizard.
Second place went to John Markos of Paris with 4 bass for 3.79 anchored by a 1.29 lunker.
Third place went to Jackie Price of Alba with 2 bass for 3.78 with a 2.49 lunker.
Fourth place went to Dan Steele of Lake Fork with 2 bass for 3.27 with a 1.82 lunker.
Fifth place went to John Berech of Garland with 3 bass for 2.56 with a 1.37 lunker.

53 Total fish were caught today on what most thought of as a real tough day with only 2 skunks.

For info on fishing this tournament and others put on by the Lake Fork Anglers contact me at sjbasser@aol.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. But you only really have to fish 8 regular LFA tournaments to maintain membership.

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.
