Input On Rain Gear

Would like and appreciate some input guys. My 15 yr old Cabella's Guideware quit repelling water last yr and it's time to upgrade. With the price of rain gear being through the roof these days what are people's opinions on what's the best or near the best to buy? I get hot easy and want something th...

Re: New Bass Circuit - New Jen

I feel it just to say what I heard. Granted it's second hand info, but it comes from 2 guys that i've known and fished with/against for 20ish years. They fished a couple of their tourneys this past season I was told told a couple horror stories. It's enough to keep me away.

Re: WWBT rules question/suggestion

i personally 100% agree that the A-rig needs to be gone. It's banned in the "big" circuits for a reason.

Re: 2018 WWBT WIld West Bass Trail Schedule Released

There should however be an * next to qualification rules. They changed it this year after all 4 events were completed, and many wasted all that $ prefishing to make the the top 50, so I'm sure they think they have the right to do so every year. #yourrulesmeannothing

Re: Respecting other anglers

Robb R. You said everything that needs to be said. Well done. The scary truth is that probably half of the people that are on here will agree but yet they are the same ones that are part of the problem but point fingers at everyone else. I see SO many people talk about "kids these days" bu...

Re: WWBT Delta Team May 6th

I have no complaints over a fabulously run circuit so far this year. That said, IMO, losing an hour, the best hour, is tough to swallow. With so many boats we've blasted 45 minutes later on 2 occasions already(luck of the draw) Many of us anglers travel long distances, and with the costs($) it would...

Re: WWBT Clearlake teams yes/no/reschedule???

I don't see anyone being impatient in any way. I think there is just a lot going on for all involved, and most are wanting/needing answers. Clear Lake will not happen in March that is now a given. I am just hoping the rumor going around that this tournament gets moved to New Melones is just that.......

Re: WWBT Clearlake teams yes/no/reschedule???

Good post. At this point I think you have to reschedule. As you can tell by the number of teams, many are traveling hours to fish the tournaments and to prefish the weekend before. With regards to making hotel reservations and time off of work for many, I think this needs to be officially cancelled ...

Re: Question for ranger guys

Stay away from the Fury. You may need to run a 24 Tempest, especially if the boat is overly full of gear or your bigger guys.

Re: Champion 210 DCX Elite help?

You will not be disappointed. I've been competitively bass fishing for 25 yrs and been in every boat made. Owned 3 Champions. The Champion rides as good as any boat made. On the newer models(like the one your looking at) they did cut a few corners with quality when the manufactured changed, but only...

Re: Unusual and suspicious tournament activity

First of all THANK YOU for posting this. The person that said you shouldn't have is ignorant. I've been fishing tournaments for 25 years, pro, teams, draw, been a TD, and this stuff goes on sadly more then most of know. I've given 1000's away to cheaters, some caught, some not.

Re: Thinking about getting new electronics (questions)

I think the answer to your just personal preference. I've seen, and used all models of HDS units. I don't find the newer units any more user friendly, and they certainly don't help you catch more fish. They have more bells and whistles and are probably "cooler" for show in tell purposes th...
