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, and fish at least 6 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.
August 15th we fished section 1. It started out around 75 with a light east breeze . We are now fishing our summer hours. 6 AM until noon to save our old brains from frying in the hot sun. Registration began at 5:45 AM and fishing started at 6:00 AM.

So how would you like to join us. We are looking for co-anglers to fish with boaters that know where to find the fish and we will teach you all about Lake Fork.
