I have found plenty of shad on Fork at the ends of the bridges along the concrete. There aren't as many weeds so you don't have to clean your net out as much.

I weighed in the biggest catfish I caught all weekend first thing Sunday morning and sat in the sixth place chair until the last 30 seconds and got kicked out.... The overall fish that won was 11.4 pounds or something like that.

David it was a terrible lake to catfish, we tried everything, and had an arsenal of different baits, but shad fillets caught most of our fish,nothing of much size , think we had a 3.6-3.8 pound channel the first day for big fish and it took at least a 5.5 to 6 pound fish to even get in the hourly money.I will be back next year, but im gonna bait out about 50 trees in different depths with soured grain before hand, and hope that works.

Sorry that Fork wasn't kind to you.  I still think they could change the lake and have a better event.

did anyone do any good?

Here's a brief lil run down of what/where we tried: We tried shallow in timber on a wind blown point, 15-16 foot in timber, humps that went up to 7' and dropped off to 32', shallow water with lilly pads, cattails, and timber mixed in one, drifting, coves by boat docks, bird island...... We used: shad, cut shad, whole shad, shad fillets, stink bait, stink bait with shad chunks and fillets on them, Shad with blood spray on it, stink bait with shad and blood spray on it, live perch, live black saltys, live black saltys with blood spray on them, and liver......... I caught a 5 pound bass on a live black salty.... The only way to have won this was live there locally and know the pattern or go times in advance and bait you up some holes. This lake sucks as a catfishing lake IMHO and the only way I would fish it again would be in the winter or by baiting out some holes...

Unfortunately they can't change the lake bacause the Lake Fork Chamber of Commerce is who sponsers this from what I was told and understand....

Told you that lake sucks! I'll never fish another one of those. Me and Brent P. got money out there the first year and would have won with the "one that got away". But it was slow and very hard to pattern.

I would say yeah, cause of all the dang hydrilla , if you were shallow and fishing on the bottom you were bringing in 10 pounds of hydrilla on your weight everytime.

BTW, I have yet to be impressed with prepared baits. The fish we caught from what I remember were on shad fillets or cut shad....
