Event #9 for the KATS (kayak anglers tournament series) took place on legendary Lake Fork. Lake Fork is full of big bass...no secret there.. 35 of the biggest bass caught in Texas come from Fork and the lake record is over 18lbs. Insane!! The top 35 anglers knew any cast could land a record fish, however, many of the competitors struggled to find even one fish that measured. A select few were able to scratch up a limit which went a long way that day earning them a nice paycheck.
I managed to land one nice keeper of 21" and missed a few more that would have measured. Most of my fish caught that day were in the range of 10-12" Not going to win any tournaments there...ha!
The last KATS event will be held on Town Lake (Lady Bird) in Austin Texas. It's a lake I've only fished once so we'll see if I can pull something out of my hat.
