FHS anglers fish on Lake Fork

Body
The Fairfield High School Texas High School Bass Association (THSBA) fishing team went fishing on Lake Fork on Saturday, November 14. Any fish between 16-24 inches can’t be kept on Lake Fork, so the anglers had to keep fish under 16 inches to weigh in.

The fish are still biting this Fall

Fishing Friends, I’ve always told my customers that Fall is my favorite time of year and this October and November have reinforced that feeling. It just doesn’t get much better than getting on the water when it’s a cool, crisp and almost chilly 40 degrees and then have it warm to around 65 degrees by mid morning.
