Lol. A normal 15.5” wins money in nearly every big bass tournament on Fork. Was it deathly skinny or something? You threw money back into the lake, for sure. hmmm

Why would you throw back a 15.5 incher. That's a money fish every time

Everything seems to be tough lately. Elites last 3 stops on really good lakes has been brutal. Rayburn you don't even see 20lb bags hardly. Need some cooler stable weather

Threw back all type of money fish because we didn't want to minimum cash and thought we would get into some thicker ones - I know sounds a bit weird but the key was crawl to a super slow crawl and I believe that in those events MANY anglers can't wrap their heads around digging in and hunkering down... they let all the movements from others psych them out and Lake Fork and weather and it should be X Y Z and just be still and catch fish - caught about 15 - 20 with about 4 being those 1.5 - 2.07 but again one wanted to move and think it could be more fast and furious - it was not

IDK everyone has a different agenda and game out there in these events. Was fun and any cast was fair game <-- that is what makes this so fun for me. BUT Fork is not dead it is just fishes A LOT smarter than you think!


Using the same bait and looks like technique was in line with above? Found it a bit interesting per website

Cause I wasn’t thinking. Caught it and looked at him three or four times and said meh he too small. He was pretty thin. Then turn on the radio and they didn’t pay like four places in first hour. The one I took in the third hour was almost 16” and only went 1.86 and I got bumped. I caught fish all day but just no size. However, I was at weigh line the next morning first thing after I caught that dink and hadn’t had another bite by 7:50. lol Sunday got tough for me.

We had a good weekend actually, with all the crazy wind and weather in all.

We actually just hunkered down in an area and milked it for everything it was worth. I chose to beat up bridges and riprap and we got bit early Saturday morning and right off the bat I hooked into a 17" and 16 1/4" that had my heart pumping. I caught my first under just before 8am and decided to run into weigh-in hoping others were struggling. I finished 15th with a 1.21 and got a reel and there were 6 empty seats left when the hour closed. My brother threw back a couple of small unders he wish he'd kept, so you never know how it's going to go. I was back at the 11am hour but got booted with a 1.85. I was catching them pretty good running a warpig lipless crank bait over the corners of the bridges/riprap and mixing it up with a drop-shot.

On Sunday we were back to doing to same and my brother caught one that that got him 15th in the 8am but after he caught his I had just enough time to make another cast with the warpig and as it deflected off of a rock it stopped in its tracks and started pulling drag. I knew I had hooked into a good one and it seemed like it took forever to get it to the boat. Every time I got it close the fish would take another dive and pull more drag. I babied it like crazy because I just knew it would pull loose but eventually I got it in the boat but she was just over 23". She was big but I didn't have time to weigh her cause I had to get my brothers fish into weigh-in, talk about hear attack and discussed. I caught another 1.88 before the 2pm weigh-in that held on for a rod so all in all it was a good weekend, we stayed busy with all the back-in-forth but it made it fun.
