6-21-18 LFA Major League Fishing format qualifying tournament # 9 results for 7/20, next is 8/17




Lake Fork Anglers Hard Core (Major League Fishing format) is pretty cool getting to count every fish you catch.

As described below section 1 is all of Big Caney, Section 2 is from where section 1 ends and goes north to the FM 515 West bridge. Section 3 is everything from the 515 w bridge north.

Like the real TV show every fish over 10" counts. You must catch 6 LB + in one of the qualifying tournaments to move into the semi-final. We set it low so most of our members would make to the second level. But there is three ways to qualify. 

Today they fished section 2.

The day started out with light southerly winds and clouds and hung in there until around 11 AM that cleared up and the sun finally came out and it got hot real fast.

Boaters:
irst place went to Bill Ailes with 17.65 on 5 fish with a 6.64 lunker caught on a baby brush hog.
Second place went to Jack White with 10 bass for 14.64 with a 2.49 lunker caught on a Whooper Plopper.
Third place went to Mike McWhorter with 2 bass for 7.01 anchored by a 6.40 lunker.
Fourth place went to Dennis Bubinas with 6 bass for 5.03 with a 1.29 lunker.
Fifth place went to Randy Steele with 2 bass for 3.54 anchored by a 1.49 lunker.

For info on fishing this tournament and others put on by the Lake Fork Anglers contact me at [email protected]. We have openings for both boaters and co-anglers right now. This is a club that fishes only on Thursday daytime. Dues are $5 a year.

All of our tournaments are priced for seniors as follows. $15 entry Payback of $12. Optional lunker pool 100% payback of $5. Optional 100% payback side pot for $10 per person.

In addition to this format that we call "Hard Core" we also fish our regular every other Thursday tournament, and a team tournament all at Lake Fork on a draw style fishing. All of our tournaments "paper" the bass and slot fish count.

If you are as "Hard Core" as some of us you can fish every Thursday like we do. And some Fridays too. And then Opens on the weekend. But you only really have to fish 8 regular LFA tournaments to maintain membership.

Hey we are seniors and we are supposed to be doing something to keep us healthy and our minds sharp and get some vitamin D. LOL At least that is what you need to tell your wife.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jun. 12)

GOOD. Water Stained; 76 degrees; 0.36 feet above pool. Bass fishing has been slower this week than last week. Topwaters frogs, Yellow Magics, and spook type baits are fair in and around flooded grass or weeds. Texas rigs and shaky heads flipped at the edge of grass in 2-5 feet are good with creature type baits and beavers. Chatterbaits are good also in front of the shallow grass. Sunny days you can catch fish out to the first break line. Cloudy days fish are best to fish tight to the grass edges. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Black bass are good morning and evening with top water frog patterns. Switching mid morning to noon streamers in shad and bream patterns. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. Lake Fork crappie fishing is getting red hot like the weather this week. Really seeing the black crappie load up in big numbers on lay downs, under docks and on other structures they like in the summer months. Look for those black crappie in 14-22 feet of water mostly. We also are seeing the white crappie loading up on brush piles and those summer time trees they like. Best depths for the white crappie have been 18-26 feet. We are still catching good numbers of crappie on small hand tied jigs and I’m sure small plastics will work as well. Did see some fish on brush piles the last few days that minnows may help with. The channel catfishing is excellent as it always is on Lake Fork. Bait you a hole near timber in 18-25 feet close to a creek channel. Use cattle cubes or sour grain to attract and hold those fish. Trees that have overnight roosting birds are a great place to make your hole. Use any prepared catfish bait of choice to load the boat once you get the fish loading up. You can still find some spawning catfish up shallow around all the new flooded grass, brush or rocks. Lake Fork catfishing continues to be superb on baited holes around roosting trees. Catfish are good in 13-25 feet with prepared bait. You can also bait holes w
