Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Anglers Championship Results


The weather was perfect. Warmer than last week and the winds were light with some clouds. However there was a Stick in the Mud. BASS 80 anglers looking for the same fish our guys were after. And from what I read some of them (BASS) did pretty good.

The format is a 5 fish limit of any bass over 10" and slot fish count because we catch, measure, and release on the spot. Only the best 5 count.



  1. First place was Bob Roberts of Longview with 6 bass for 15.16 LB with the boater lunker of 6.15 LB caught on a C-rig.
  2. Second place went to Randy Bunch of Lake Fork with 6 bass for 12.07 LB with a 5.71 LB lunker.
  3. Third place went to Dennis Bubinas of Lake Fork with 5 bass for 6.49 LB with a 1.63 LB lunker.
  4. Fourth place went to Curt Blount of Lake Fork with 5 bass for 6.47 LB with a 2.02 LB lunker caught on a drop shot.
  5. Fifth place went to Galen Smith of Alba 4 bass for 5.19 LB with a 2.35 LB lunker.



  1. First place was Ken Kielbas of Arlington with 6 bass for 17.23 LB with the co-angler lunker of 7.41 LB.
