Today started out warm for this time of the year in the upper 50's, but it was already when blowing out of the south. Today most of the winners reported using baby brush hogs and drop shot finesse worms to catch their fish.

Hard Core is what we call this tournament, but it follows the Major League Fishing format where every fish you catch over 10" counts. With Lake Fork partitioned into three sections and the section rotates each week throughout the year.Today section 3 was scheduled. LFA Members will qualify for the semi-final in November by catching 6 lb. and attending at least 6 tournaments. Or fish 80% of the tournaments.
