Rubber Mats for BASS Boats

If BASS is going to continue to resist allowing the anglers to use nets in their tournaments, then they should require each boat to have a rubber 'landing mat' on the boat so that the bass are not flopping around on the boat carpet, thereby damaging their protective slime coating.
