Lake Fork Anglers (LFA) Bass Fishing Club Tournament Results: 11/09/2023

2023 LFA Annual Championship Tournament – Largest 5 Bass 10 inches and over


30 Members braved a full day of very tough weather conditions.  The rain was continuous with periods of very hard

downpour and strong winds.  All but the very best raingear failed to keep members dry, and waterproof shoes kept

more feet inundated with water than kept water out.

The LFA club fishes every Thursday with afternoon weigh-in at the SRA Park on Hwy 154 @ 12:45 pm (Summer Hours). Two club tournament formats are rotated weekly. 

  • LFA – Best 5 fish format – 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month
  • Hard Core – MLF format –  1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month


All club tournaments are two-person catch and release tournaments with an angler and a co-angler per boat.  Anglers compete against anglers and Co-Anglers compete against co-anglers.


LFA members are mostly retired anglers who can fish weekly tournaments each Thursday. Membership is open to all persons who are physically able to fish and function independently in a boat, whether alone, or as a team member during scheduled Thursday fishing tournaments.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Nov. 29)

GOOD. Water Stained; 50 degrees; 2.26 feet below pool. Bass fishing has slowed after the recent cold fronts and you need to be very slow in your approach. Squarebill crankbaits and rattletraps are fair in 3-5 feet of water along the edge of grass. Texas rigs and Carolina rigs are best along the edge of grass as well in 3-7 feet of water. Suspending jerkbaits is starting to work as the water temperatures decline. Report by Marc Mitchell, Lake Fork Guide Service. Fall weather has arrived so fish will start to prepare for cold weather. Black bass are moving deep for the winter. Cast clousers, ned rigs, and large worm patterns in flooded tree tops near creeks and deep water ledges. Crappie are moving out to the open water in 30 plus feet of water biting small jig patterns. Report by Guide Alex Guthrie, Fly Fish Fork Guide Service. The crappie fishing on Lake Fork continues to be as good as ever. Look for fish in big numbers moving as they head toward the deep water winter pattern. Look for timber along main lake creek channels in 28-40 feet right now for numbers of fish and some big fish mixed in. Minnows will work well but they are biting small hand tied jigs and larger plastic baits as well now that the surface water temps have dropped. We are still seeing some fish on brush and lay downs from time to time. Bridged have been up and down the last few weeks but they can be worth checking out for numbers of black crappie. Report by Jacky Wiggins, Jacky Wiggins Guide Service.
