Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Anglers 5 Fish Limit Results for 7.7.20


Wind, wind, wind. Which is normal and we should be used to it. The waves breaking over the back my boaters boat caused us a ten minute delay when it was time to leave to pump out all of that water. Drop shots, c-rigs, jigs and shaky heads and crankbaits won the day. Congrats to Gary Gilmore for his 9.12 LB over. Also congrats to long suffering boater Terry Thompson for catching the boater lunker and coming in much higher than usual. Terry had his grandson Grayson as a guest today. Also Greg Geisler had his son as a guest today as did Gary Pardini had his son Jason Pardini. Way to go young fellas!

We caught 115 keepers today with 4 skunks. Many of the fish were caught in deeper water than is usual for us.

The LFA fishes every Thursday except T-Day and Christmas on 2 different formats. A 5 fish limit we call LFA and a MLF style format where every fish counts we call Hard Core, 3 special tournaments and an end of year dinner. We are a club of 55+ seniors (Mostly) and are very liberal on members being for off vacations and medical issues.

Right now we are looking for more co-anglers. Bring your tackle and life vest and get to go out on Lake Fork for far less than you'd pay for a guide.
