Re: FLW College National Championship (Need Help)

Congrats on qualifying. I've never done anything similar, as my folks told me to pound sand when I said I wanted to stop going to school and try and make a living fishing as an 18 year old. That being said--the best way to raise money is to stop looking for a handout, and getting to work. Get a job,...

Finally had a friend who works with the DMV handle it all, and she had to spend some time with it. They ha...
