I had to scroll way down to find this post because more bass scoop spam occurred...I didn't know it was Bobby because it was so spammy I skipped all of it...maybe mass spam turns readers off...just my take

Bobby Barrack travels to ICAST every year for WesternBass to show site users new products that will be coming out for the fishing industry. ICAST only comes once a year and is not open to the public, so thru WesternBass, Bobby gives us a look at what most anglers aren't able to be onsite at ICAST to view at this time.

We hope the WB site users enjoy the updates, sneak peeks, first looks, behind the scenes info, laughs and stories that Bobby always shares.

If you don't, please feel free not to view the videos and enjoy the rest of the site.

Thanks to all for your support of the WesternBass site. We hope you enjoy the fun and info that Bobby has and shares at the show!

Thanks for the responses...maybe a separate forum for commercial posts about products could be made...maybe replace striper forum with icast forum...just seems to have hijacked the very user driven fishing forum...the bass scoop posts are diluting the posts I come to read...I still think it is spammy

It's one week out of the year and Bobby is there making content for Westernbass.com, its being published on Westernbass.com, why would they bury sponsors in some obscure forum? Afterall this is business and businesses tend to want to make money. Just scroll on by or come back after icast. So much content out on the 'nets competing for your attention - nows the time to check out tick toc :lol: :lol:

I saw all the posts but figured out what was going on when I saw the who is that masked fisherman thread. I don't consider it much of a hijack. It's not like looking at used boats through all the dealership threads. As it was informational and not obtuse in your face I look at what I want. While I don't have a need for any crappie baits...since some of my underspins would qualify and I checked it out. This is not new to the site as I've seen it in years past. I assume fishwithwill has changed his username recently with 53 posts since the NCBF days? Glad Bobby's bird dogging for me... :D

Ripa, save your detective work for something else...calling out the validity of my statements is childish...we are grown ups, no need to lie....I enjoy your posts and thoughtful takes so keep em to fishing and don't make em personal...maybe see you offshore someday...bft are biting

Bobby and Stacey moved to Texas, too. They used to be my down-the-street neighbors. I enjoy getting to see them again at ICAST.
