The Lake Fork Anglers Twice monthly results for Mar 14th the water temps finally made it above 50 and it started cool and warmed up as the day went on, But the winds were strong out of the NW... This was tournament 5 of 22.

Fishing is slow. Like last time, probably because the wind was blowing so hard everyone ended up in a cove or two.

The bass were caught on rattle traps and bladed jigs and wacky style stick worms.. Lake Fork anglers format is a draw style paper tournament where slot fish count. All fish are measured, recorded and released on the spot year round.

Each boat has a boater and a co-angler.

Only the best five count.

A total of 44 bass were caught today, and only 7 members were skunked on an interesting day of fishing..

The LFA fishes every Thursday during the month on two different formats. The as described LFA twice monthly format where there are declared cash winners fishing for "Angler of the Year" points and plaques.

On the 1st and 3rd Thursdays members fish what we call "Hard Core" which follows the Major League Fishing TV show format where every fish you catch counts. Like MLF members we try to qualify for the semi-final that will be held in Nov by catching at least 6 LB in any of the qualifying tournaments' Also In Nov members those that have quailified are paired and the top 50% by weight will advance to the championship when announced.
Winning members are rewarded with "Bass Fishing Innovations" plaques and a cash benefit.

Not all of our 50+ members fish every week or even both formats on a regular basis. We are seniors and fish when we have the time. But we do have a core group of about 30 that fish on a regular basis. And because we are mostly seniors we are adamant in making sure there is always two anglers in a boat. Both for safety and for sharing ,learning and making an enjoyable day of it.
