Lake Fork is a slot-limit lake, five fish limit, under 16 inches or one fish over 24 inches. Bruce Ray caught an 8.16-pound bass in practice - just one day too early. McCracken had a five-fish string totaling 8.58 pounds and the big bass of 2.36 pounds. PK fishing guide Barry Smith had five fish weighing 6.78 pounds while another local guide, Mike Hallford, nabbed four fish that tipped the scale at 4.9 pounds.
