Today was the first tournament of the new year for us which begins in December. And this is also the beginning of our tenth year. I do remember our first year it was cold. Even colder than today was. And like today the fishing was tough.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year and today was number 1 for 2023,

We fished section 1 today. All bass 10" and up count. MLF format, where every fish you catch counts including slots.
