We are dealing with the Covid 19 virus by only the co-angler picking up the score sheet in the morning and paying the fee for both anglers. By noon 30 they have to be back with their filled out sheets all done by social distancing. So basically of the 50 or so members fishing for the most part you only get to see your boater or co-angler and the person handing out and receiving the score sheets while wearing masks. We were about to relax it but with the new surging we will continue with these restrictions. Very few of our members have no existng medical issues. So we will continue to play it safe while still getting out as a club and fishing. Saying all of that we dearly miss the interaction of our members.

Today wasn't bad weather wise but it sure got hot by 10 AM. Water temps around 85. The fish were caught on every manner of technique.

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. in one tournament and attending at least 6 tournaments. Or fish 80% of the tournaments.
