Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Anglers Results from December 17th


Much to our discomfort the weatherman got it right for a change. The day started out with light winds out of the south but it was below freezing at  the starting time.. And the fishing was tough to say the least.

The MLF format counts every fish over 10" including slot fish. We fish three rotating sections on Lake Fork every other Thursday daytime about 22 times a year..

Members must fish at least 8 tournaments to maintain membership.

We fished section 2 today.
