The weather today started out fairly cool mainly because of the heavy cloud cover which hung around to about 10 AM. Then it got hot. The fish were caught by wacky, c-rigs, drop shots and t-rigs.

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 1 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.
