Mr. Clunn is on fish and I am pulling for him to win.

They caught about whaylt I thought they would catch A few big bags and then 14-18lb bags. Several on tge struggle bus.

I personally think most people struggle on Fork this time of year if they have little experience on the lake. It takes some time to figure it out a bit. Visually its overwhelming as all looks so good out there. I said yesterday and still feel its gonna be won shallow by a junk fisherman.i think weights are similar tommorrow but fall off on Saturday for many.
I think a double digit or two will get weighed.

Just for reference. I caught three fish for about 8-9# today. Lost probably an 8 at the boat when it tried to jump in the boat and knocked the crankbait loose as it hit the side of the boat. frown

About what I expected. Seems they find a lot of the good areas quickly.

Walter's is using live scope to see his fish. That technology is starting to get guys in the top almost every tournament. You used to never see a guy openly using a brand other than what they are sponsored by but your seeing it more and more just because the tech is that much of an advantage. Will be cool to see exactly what hes doing tomorrow. Kind of looked like he was throwing a jerk bait at suspended fish

This. I have been finding some really nice fish in the dirt and had a nice over on a top water about two weeks ago. Problem is others found them too and have been hammering them. Bite has been really late in the day lately.

Clunn said 4 of his came off of the same dock. I wonder if it's that special that they will replenish.

I think Rick Clunn's accomplishment today was spectacular considering how Fork has been fishing the last 60 days. Nothing would make me happier (well almost nothing) to see him win another Elite event. I hope his spot reloads and he duplicates his feat tomorrow.

Fork has been TUFF. Yeah there were eight 20 pound bags today but there is something else to consider that I feel is more revealing than the 8 big bags.

Half the field of 85 anglers caught 3 fish or less all day today. These are arguably the best anglers in the world. What does that tell you about the fishery? Not bashing just saying. I have fished Fork for a while and she has been tougher this fall than ever. Maybe the fish are social distancing from my bait??

Just look in the pastures the cows seem to be social distancing also, animals can sense this virus and they want no part of it either.

Not bad weights for a slot lake. I would have enjoyed seeing what their actual weights would have been had they weigh in only overs/unders. I recall a statement from Clunn earlier in the afternoon saying he hadn't caught a keeper yet but he had a small 20 pound bag at the time.
