Re: Life Jacket recomdations

I did not realize they were that pricey. Better material and everything. They are also much easier to take on and off. I hate the SOS vests simply for trying to get in and out of them.. They will go off and scare the sh** out of you also.

Re: Gary Dobyns??

Hi Mike, We made the flippin sticks 1 piece to cut down on weight and make them more sensitive. We thought about the problems of a 1 piece rod but figured the positives out weighed the negatives. It was very hard trying to figure out what was the best overall choice for the most fishermen. Of course...

Re: I wish we had something like this out here in the West..

Any time a tournament organization requires a certain number of entries to give a boat away, the tournament is doomed. If a tournament is promoted well (this almost never happens), is scheduled well, has a fair payback and is giving a boat away for a $290 entry fee, it would be a big hit. Some of ou...

You guys want to talk about house payments and continue to lose about a $1000 to $1500 per event (entry fees, gas, rooms, and the always needed tackle someone else is catching them on). For every 25th place finish you get NO dollars. But I see plenty of $50000 dollar boats and $45000 trucks pulling ...

On a 6 tourament schedule, if you made the 50th place check twice, you just payed for all your entrys plus most, if not all, your expenses. If...
