This tournament emulates the Major League Fishing format where every fish you catch counts. Today a pair of our anglers met those requirements and excelled. Not fishing as a team but still sharing water and baits Randy Bunch (boater) and Scott Powell (co-angler) literally blew the doors off of our MLF stats.
With a 3 LB. average the two caught 36 bass for 115.47 LBS. Randy's lunker was a 7.41 and Scotts was a 5.08. Oh, did I say they were all caught on a 1.5 square bills? Considering the forecast was for 18-36 MPH, but it turned out to be under 10 for a while and then picked up to about 15 it was not a bad day for most.

It was amazing the number of 20+ inch fish that were caught.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...
