Lake Fork Anglers MLF Format Semi-Final Results From November 4

Cold fronts are the worst. At least for many but as usual not for all. We all had our winter wear on for the expected 40's all day long. But the promised cloud cover all day long lasted until around 9 AM. And it appears part of the lake is still turning over.

In the semi-final the top ten boaters and top ten co-anglers fished to see who will qualify for the final in two weeks. All the men listed here qualified for the final even me who just squeaked in.

This morning a section was drawn to decide where we will be fishing. All fish 10" and larger are considered keepers. MLF Format all keepers count towards your total weight.

We fished section 1 today.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 24)

FAIR. Water lightly stained; 62-64 degrees; 2.76 feet low. Largemouth bass are fair and clinging to the same holding pattern. Bass are biting on chatterbaits in the backs of coves in 1-3 feet of water, but we should see this bite going away soon. Viper ST jigs 3-5 feet of water and one-half ounce football jigs in 8-10 feet of water on drop-offs. Suspending jerkbaits around wood in 5-7 feet has brought several catches. Catfish are excellent on self-baited holes in 20-35 feet of water. Report by Lake Fork fishing guides Jason Hoffman and Marc Mitchell. Crappie are good chasing the shad to warmer water. Catches coming in 26-42 feet of water from the main creek and secondary channels close or adjacent to timber using minnows and soft plastics. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
