Lake Fork Anglers Results From November 3

We've been following the MLF format for the last 7 years and at the end of each year we hold a championship. To qualify members must catch at least 6 Lbs in one tournament and fish at least 6 Hard Core tournaments. This year after a few bow outs we ended with ten boats each with a competing Boater and Co-Angler.

And in the morning prior to the event the section where we fished was drawn by the senior co-angler. And I must say just because I drew section 2 didn't mean the other sections wouldn't have been as bad.

It was BAD. As usual there were those that caught'em and those they didn't. And there were way more than did bad than good.

The top 5 in each group advances to the final in two weeks.

MLF format where every bass 10: and up counts including slot fish,


Boaters Results:

  1. 1st Place- Mike McWhorter of Lake Fork with 2 bass for 8/44 LB with the boater lunker of 7.15 LB.
  2. 2nd Place-Don Overstreet of Sulphur Springs with 5 bass for 4 LB with a 1.54 LB lunker,
  3. 3rd Place- Herb King of Lake Fork with 2 bass for 3.28 LB with a 2.36 LB lunker.
  4. 4th Place- Tim Gold of Mineola with 2 bass for 2.68 LB with a 2.02 lunker.
  5. 5th Place - Randy Bunch with 2 bass for 1.63 LB.



  1. 1st Place- Larry Kelly of Yantis with 1 bass which was also the lunker for this group for 6.64 LB caught on a chatter bait.
  2. 2nd Place- Tom Whitrock of Lake Fork 4 bass for 2.17 LB with a 0.93 lunker. I did say it was tough.
  3. 3rd Place- Tom Black of Bullard with 2 bass for 1.76 LB with 1.00 lunker.
  4. 4th Place- Alf Tuggle of Scroggins 1 bass for 0.66 LB.
  5. 5th Place- Scott Powell with no bass and no bites but because he has the highest weight in that group, he beat out the other 5 zeros.


23 keepers were caught on a day with clouds and moderate winds and the water temps of around 68 f. It should have been great.

Lake Fork Anglers fish 50 Thursday daytime tournaments every year on two different formats. Tournaments are $20 each including a 100% lunker. For more info call John at 214-930*6197 Boaters and Co-Anglers are both welcome.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Mar. 15)

GOOD. Water Stained; 63 degrees; 1.69 feet below pool. Bass are good on topwater frogs in the flooded grass. Flukes and senkos have been really good along the edge of the flooded grass in 2-4 feet. Darker colors are best such as black and blue and June bug. Texas rigs are good with beaver type baits in black and blue along the edge of the grass and some stumps 2-4 feet. Main lake points with spinnerbaits are good on windy points. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Pro. Cooler weather is affecting the movement of the black bass, as the water cools the females are not committing to the beds but, as the water warms activity increases. Be ready with a slow subsurface presentation in 3-4 feet or weedless topwater in flooded grass. Crappie are beginning to move towards the banks, try small bead heads fished slowly 3-4 feet. Carp and gar are spawning in shallow water. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork is getting really hot. Seeing great numbers and lots of big fish each day. The fish are making huge moves shallow this week and will for the next month. Areas in 2-13 feet are finally beginning to see more fish that are spawning. The 14-32 feet staging areas are also still loaded with fish and reloading daily now. Seeing lots of fish roaming in open water but the best luck is still coming on fish on timber or brush. Small hand tied jigs in chartreuse or orange are getting crushed right now, and you can still catch fish well on soft plastics and minnows. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins’ Guide Service.
