Why would you not be able to come to our meetings? Just kidding, but our meeting are held after fishing at the Minnow Bucket.

Our cub is made up of mostly seniors and a few younger guys who are able to fish on Thursdays.

As described on the TFF club site we fish every Thursday on two different formats. Our annual dues is $5 and tournaments are $15, but all kick in the extra $5 for the 100% lunker payback.
Co-Anglers must give their boater $20 at registration for gas money. (I filled my truck and boat after last Thursdays tournament and it was $102.00 for the last 4 trips.)

Boaters and co-anglers contact John Berech at 214-930-6197 to get on the boat seating list prior to the next tournament. You can fish with us the first time for free, but you cannot win anything. You still must pay the boater fee. Or you can pay the full fee and if you are in the money you will get it. I cannot tell you how many times a new member wins money in their first tournament.

This is a paper club. We catch the fish, measure them, record the length and throw them back. The paper slips are brought into the marina at the end and inches are converted to pounds to determine the winners. We always have two anglers in a boat to verify the length, for safety, and to learn techniques, baits and spots. Fishing with us will definitely improve your fishing and casting accuracy.

You can go the www.bassfin.com/ to find our website. On there is our rules and results. If you look back a few weeks on the bass page of a post that Gary Paris made about our club and my comments to a guy named Jeff from Iowa about the big bass we caught in 2019 which ended at the end of November. There were a lot of big fish caught but that is typical results for every year. IN 2018 we caught 2 ten's.
On the same day, both in 20' ten miles apart. At Fork you just never know.

Call John to get started.
