That's a win for non Skeeter peeps.

actually there will be a lot of people happy that the lake won't be taken over by a couple thousand people, so it is a win for some

It sucks that this virus or possible overreaction to the virus has cost people a lot of money. I simply said some (locals) will be happy there won't be a couple of the big tournaments.

I agree it will hurt the local economy

Skeeter Postpones 27th Annual Owners Tournament that was scheduled to be held June 2020 on Lake Fork due to COVID-19. More info regarding refunds on press release below.

The businesses hurt by this will not be as cavalier as you. A day and a half of action on lake Fork is a mild price to pay for the weeklong boost to the local economy!

That definitely sucks for the business owners out here as it does for Skeeter. Big hit to the economy out here.

Lake Fork business owners could prolly fold up and blow away after this hit to the businesses and local economy. It's been tough enough over there without all the coronavirus and such.

This!

It's a smart move by Skeeter and BC, but will suck for the local community!

Not sure about fork but I know Rayburn and Toledo it's been their best spring I can remember. More people on the water than I've ever seen for a spring. It's been absolutely crazy even during the week.

A friend who lives in Fork told me it's busier than he's seen it in many years.

Sucks the big events have to rescheduled, hopefully they can get them in this year.

If that many people are on the lake they must be spending money. I've actually seen posts where the locals were encouraging visitors to leave because they were buying up a lot of supplies and food around the lake...

the increase in business with the shutdown will maybe offset the loss of the skeeter week.

sucks for the businesses still.

skeeter, legend of fork, champs big bass, berkley etc. all bring a bunch of income for the businesses and I have never had a problem during skeeter, I just stay off the lake that weekend. I have the other 363 days to fish it.

No,...from what I see it's mostly local daily fisherman. The food/beverage, lodging, and tackle sales is minimal. realmad
