Lake Fork Anglers Results From August 4

I'd sure like to tell you a story about today's fishing. But unfortunately, the fellow I was going with couldn't raise the motor enough to get the toter off. After much stuff Perry at Service marine in Emory figures it out to be the relay that control the switch. But they don't work on E-Tecs and John took his boat to Rockwall.

The story on the water was all about the haves and have not. Them that caught'em did really good with big fish and big fish stories of the ones that go away. The rest not so much.

We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year...
