We had a cold front in July this week. Actually dropped the water temperature a few degrees. But the fishing stayed the same. Mixed as usual.

Right now we are looking for co-anglers to join. You don't need a boat, just a need to catch some bass and to be taught the how, why, where and with what.

The Lake Fork Anglers Twice monthly daytime results for July 25 This was tournament 14 of 22.

The bass were caught on drop shot finesse worms, flukes, BBH's, top waters and wacky style stick worms again.. 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.

The LFA fishes every Thursday during the month on two different formats. The as described LFA twice monthly format where there are declared cash winners fishing for "Angler of the Year" points and plaques.

On the 1st and 3rd 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 Oct by catching at least 6 LB in any of the qualifying tournaments. In Nov members those that have quailified are paired and the top 50% by weight will advance to the championship round when announced.
Winning members are rewarded with "Bass Fishing Innovations" plaques and a cash benefit.

Not all of our 50+ members fish every week or even both formats on a regular basis. We are seniors and fish when we have the time. But we do have a core group of about 30 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, measuring 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.
E-mail me at sjbasser@gmail.com for info. Or call at 903-440-2797. We only fish at Lake Fork because the chance for that fish of a lifetime is always there.
