OK so it was raining hard and not very warm either, but at least the winds were light. Once again our seniors ventured out to defeat Mother Nature and have an enjoyable day as well.
And catching fish they did. Not giants mind you, but an improvement in size this week with no impending drop in temps driving the slots into deeper water.

This was the last points tournament for 2019 and right at the cut line at least three members in each group could win the trophy depending on how well they did today.

The fish were caught on all manner of baits mostly in fairly shallow water.

Only the best 5 fish count.

1st place went to Bob Roberts of Longview with 4 bass for 6.30 LB with a 2.36 LB. lunker caught on a red rattle trap.

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.
