>>Lake Fork, TX, Ultimate Challenge One-Pole, March 15. There were 40 teams faced the stump-filled lake. The high winds and fish movements made pre-fishing difficult but things changed for some of the teams on tournament day. Some of the fishermen reported the tournament fishing was some of the best fishing they had seen in their lives with 100-150 fish with 1.75-pounders being released because they had bigger ones in the livewell. Snider and Albin weighed in 15.38 pounds for the wind. They jigged in 3-5 foot waters fishing off the bottom. They caught most of their fish off of one line of trees. Fish required them to fish slowly and hold the bait still for 30 to 90 seconds then the fish would hammer it. They used Bobby Garland MoGlo Jam scent and Nibbles on Bobby Garland Baby Shad jigs. They earned $3,200.
