Lake Fork Anglers every other week Thursday daytime tournament for Apr 13 where the water was at the right temperature for a April spawn with the full moon being yesterday but a funny thing happened on the way to the beds. The bass have mainly already spawned, it rained and the lake came up 2 feet, and the carp are over running the banks....everywhere.
So while there were a few biggies caught most members just caught the usual 12-13-14-15's.
32 anglers fished.
Most of the fish were caught on drop shots, and c-rigs and square bills again.
