Although the weather was not great, the Cayuga Wildcats high school bass fishing team ended their 2019 tournament schedule with a solid day on the waters of Lake Fork. Cayuga placed two teams inside the top-20 of Saturday's tournament and had six of their nine competing teams weigh-in fish. There were 183 high school teams competing for top honors.

Anglers Emily Banta and Kara Stovall placed 12th reeling in five fish weighing 6.16 pounds – a drastic improvement from their 88th place finish at Richland Chambers a few weeks prior.

Morgan Banta and Kolten Goolsby maxed out with five fish weighing 5.46 pounds securing 19th. It was a determined effort from both teams on difficult waters to close out the first half of the tournament season.

The improvement Cayuga has seen overall is accredited to developing a tougher mentality when on the waters. It's apparent as their six weighed teams were the most of the tournament season this year.

Other finishers include Marley Vincent and Kynzie Watson who placed 78th with two fish caught weighing 1.48 pounds. Ayden Stovall and Steven Wingfield brought in three fish for a total weight of 1.04 pounds. Megan Kelly placed 98th with an unassigned partner and was able to reel in a single catch, while duo Matthew Pendely and Jayden Rampy also made a single catch in the afternoon.

Tournament action resumes on Feb. 22 at Lake Ray Hubbard.

Lake Fork Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 27)

GOOD. Water stained; 59-64 degrees; 2.08’ low. Largemouth bass are good on plastic worms, caterpillars, and Alabama rigs on points, shallower mid-lake spots, and among standing timber. Mapping ridges will help establish your consistent spots. White and yellow bass are good on Alabama Rigs. Crappie are fair on jigs and minnows in the stumps or man-made structures. Catfish are good on prepared bait and cut bait.
