Default Texas State Crappie Championship 2018!!

Starts tomorrow on Fork and I'm stuck at the office still!! Boo! Going to be fun. Cooler temps have the fish on the move big time and where they are today might not be where they are tomorrow. Hoping they've at least stayed put since last week! I had em pinned down pretty good all summer and those places are ghost towns now. Feel like we can catch 11 pounds a day and hope for 12.5 each day but I don't think that will win. A lot of good crappie snatchers on that lake and it's always given me fits but we shall see. Hopefully catch a good mess each day and have fun. Won AOY this year so my goal was already accomplished. Would be nice to make top 5 anyhow, but another state championship plaque on the wall would work too!!!

We went back and forth with them for AOY most the season. That said we only won most likely cause Paul Obier didn't fish this year. Him and Jerry Hancock are 2 I would like to beat this weekend! Don't know where I would finish if I did but it wouldn't be bad!!

I was sure hoping y'all would come fish it! I fished that lake 2 weekends before the tourney and the only place I caught fish was where y'all did too! There was nobody there weekend before but jacky! I figured cold and rainy only us fools in the tourney would be there! I was wrong! Had 2 different boats fish fhe piling we were tied too before 7! I woulda spider rigged between pilings if I knew if would be like that! We had 9.5 pounds in 2 hours the day before and struggled to catch 7 keepers tourney day. Oh well live and learn!!

How about a midday update while you have your feet propped up just waiting on the fish to bite

That's a bummer! I used to dislike Fork years ago till I learned to fish timber. Now it's one of my favorites. I broke 3 fish off today on 12lb Florocarbon. Can't say they were crappie but they were big.

Already wet just loading the boat up!! Rain gears already on. Raining pretty good here. I'm fine with rain as long as the Lightning stays away. Once it gets to popping my tourney is over.

Kirk is a hammer on Fork! His BIL Craig caught the lake record with him.

Since there's only a couple pieces of timber on Fork, what distinguishing characteristic makes you say, " there'll be a slab on this tree"?

Well didn't catch what we did yesterday but still happy with it. Went back out for an hour and Caufht fish but didn't upgrade any! Coulda went in at 11am with same fish! Caught probsbly 100 today. Started throwing em back at 930 so we didn't go over 50! Tossed 1.5 fish back all afternoon. They were killing the jigs. Fun stuff! Second after day 1 and second after day 2. I'll take it. First place was in the same trees we were in so was 3rd! Good times and $2200 heavier in the wallet! And dem Tigers won! Fine weekend!
