Lake Fork

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Lake Fork Anglers Twice monthly Thursday daytime tournament results for 1.11.8

by
Lake Fork Anglers




The Lake Fork Anglers Twice monthly results for Jan 11th were fair. The weather forecast called for a great drop in temps, high winds and possible sleet. None of that happened and the outside temps were in the mid 60's, winds light and no rain. Also hardly any fish. Apparently they have their heads buried deep in the cover for the pending storm.
The fish that were caught mainly came on drop shots and c-rigs.


Lake Fork anglers format is a draw style paper tournament where slot fish count. All fish are measured, recorded and released on the spot year round.
Each boat has a boater and a co-angler.


Boater Results
1st place goes to Bob Roberts with 3 bass for 10.62 lb and THE lunker of 5.28 caught on a red rattle trap.
2nd place goes to Jack White with 2 bass for 2.29 lb and a 1.29 lunker.
3rd place goes to Charlie Abresch with 1 bass for 2.13.


Co-Angler Results
1st place goes to John Berech with 2 bass for 3.19 lb with a 1.82 lunker.
2nd place goes to Charlie Arnold with 2 bass for 2.91 lb with a 1.54 lunker.
3rd place goes to Ray Carter with 1 bass which was also THE lunker at 2.25 on a drop shot.


A total of 15 bass were caught on a tough day with the water temps right around 50.



The LFA fishes every Thursday during the month on three different formats. The as described LFA twice monthly format where there are declared cash winners fishing for "Angler of the Year" points and plaques.


On another Thursday we have what we call Faze 4 which is a drawn team tournament fishing for cash, while putting aside money for an annual benefit to the winners of a 2 day championship held in December. Members must fish 4 F-4 events during the year to qualify for the championship.


On the 4th and 5th Thursdays members fish what we call "Hard Core" which follows the Major League Fishing TV show format where every fish you catch counts. Like MLF members we try to qualify for the semi-final that will be held in Sep by catching at least 6 LB in any of the qualifying tournaments.'
In Sep those members that have quailified are paired and the first ten to catch 8 lb have then quailified for the championship in Oct.
Winning members are rewarded with "Bass Fishing Innovations Cup" plaques and a cash benefit.


Not all of our 50+ members fish every week or even all three formats on a regular basis. We are seniors and fish when we have the time. But we do have a core group of about 36 that fish on a regular basis. And because we are mostly seniors we are adamant in making sure there is always two anglers in a boat. Both for safety and for sharing ,learning and making an enjoyable day of it.
Annual dues is $5 and tournaments are $15 with $12 paid back. There is an optional $5 lunker pool and an optional $10 big bag pool.
E-mail me at sjbasser@aol.com for info. We only fish at Lake Fork on purpose.


Thanks,
Bruce Allen, Secretary
