Lake Fork Anglers Results From July 7

Heat. Is the main reason we are fishing from 6 AM until noon. And for the most part the morning bite has been pretty good right up until this Thursday. At least there was a breeze. When I got back to my truck at 11:30 the temp inside was 112 degrees.

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