    RE: BassFan poll As a former tournament director in California for a few different circuits for over 10 years, I have only weighed in one bass that hit that magical 15-pound weight. Bobby Barrack did it on the California Delta during a Western Bass Team Tournament and the fish was a shade over 15 pounds. A true giant.

    RE: Pro Circuit's 150-hp minimum Small boats are not always safer I have seen some real close calls with small boats. Hammer down!

  • Bennett Morris of Collierville, TN writes:

    RE: Balog on weather decisions On the subject of rough water and weather issues that have changed tournaments, the show should go with a majority vote among the competitors. I think they are way too quick to call a tournament due to weather. Short of lightning, let them fish.

    RE: Stone with FLW Live crew Better than the screaming demon Mercer GI-GI-GI-GIANT!

    RE: Carter's win at Wheeler Did he use a tunnel jet or tunnel prop? People here on the Missouri River use a jet. They think I'm crazy when I tell them I'm interested in using a tunnel prop. I talked to Ott DeFoe about it briefly. He says use it! I'm just trying to get some tunnel prop feedback.

    RE: Pro Circuit's 150-hp minimum This confirms everything the league denies ... you gotta have an expensive boat to compete. Ridiculous rule. Safer, more economical doesn't apply.

  • Chance Huiet of Hardin, TX writes:

    RE: Pro Circuit's 150-hp minimum Rules are rules, but thats the stupidest rule Ive ever heard of. Professional tournament bass fishing has gone down the drain.

    RE: Balog on weather rulints Fishing with too many standards on TV will be boring. Mankind has fished almost from the very beginning and from the beginning those who take the biggest risk more often than not reap the biggest rewards. Fish are stupid, fishing (and specifically tournament fishing) is not so much about man against the fish, its about man figuring out how nature affects fish. If the perfect storm is not on the horizon, let em fish.

    I understand the need for rules, especially regarding cheating. However, over-regulation will not increase viewership, it will drive viewers away. Look no further than NASCAR for an example of what over-regulation will do for a sport.

    RE: Stone with FLW Live crew Why? The most boring guy on TV. Many feel this way and it won't help your ratings. Marty is a nice guy, but not in front of a microphone. Sorry, my 2 cents and I can't watch.

  • Todd Hammes of La Crosse, WI writes:

    RE: Stone joins FLW Live crew I like how he analyzes water and breaks down strategy. I learn a lot by listening to him.

  • Charles Bowman of Kernersville, NC writes:

    KVD has disappeared. A couple years ago, I saw KVD everywhere. In the last couple years, I do not hear anything at all of KVD. It's as if he's vanished. KVD, are you still out there somewhere?

  • Steve Linden of Hickory, NC writes:

    I just wanted to pass along a positive comment. The FLW Tour two-hour show on Friday nights is outstanding! A big step up from prior years. The broadcast team and production work is excellent. Keep up the good work!

  • Steven Williams of Harrington, DE writes:

    Supposed to fish the Eastern Open on Oneida Lake as a co-angler. Still no word about them even having this tournament!

  • Gus Dowdy of Leeds, AL writes:

    Sounds like a dog chasing his tail. Rankings based on performance against strength of field and strength of field determined by Rankings? Under that system, why have any Elite Series anglers since all the "stars" are in MLF?

    BassFan says: There are a substantial number of anglers on the Elite Series with strong track records enough that Elite anglers currently hold three of the top 10, eight of the top 20 and 13 of the top 30 positions in the BassFan World Rankings.

  • David Harrison of Huntsville, AL writes:

    I know what the B.A.S.S. Elites pay to win AOY. Did Jordan Lee get any money for winning the BPT points race? I could not find this on their website.

    BassFan says: There is no cash award tied to the 2020 BPT points championship.

  • Dennis Pentecost of Milford, IL writes:

    I am one who believes fishing equipment is overpriced, but I have to tell you I fished a tournament last weekend and the partner I fished with had a Humminbird Helix 12 with 360 Imaging, Side Scan and Down Imaging. Probably worth every penny! We found bluegills on the beds in weeds with it and weighed in 17.13 pounds for 2nd place. I am going to bite the bullet and get one.

  • Matt Mattingly of Gravel Switch, KY writes:

    RE: New Your tournaments What about the Bassmaster Open on Oneida?

    BassFan says: We haven't received any word on that yet.

  • Randy Sherrick of Apple Valley, CA writes:

    RE: BPT entry fees Johnny Morris is a billionaire. If Mr. Morris genuinely cares about tournament bass fishing, he should do the right thing and continue to cover the entry fees for the BPT pros.

  • Sid Havard of Simsboro, LA writes:

    I was blessed to grow up in the heyday of Toledo Bend, my dad and his brothers guiding there. I often tell my son of the days of 80 to 100 bass days on topwater, or the old worm holes where you just tied up to a stump and made same cast over and over. My point to Chance is simple: We did not have two 12-inch graphs at the wheel with a double stack rig on the front deck. Lures were simple 6-inch worms, a few topwaters and depending on time year maybe a tailspinner to work off the bottom.

    My point was Ive tried to teach Chance to read what's right in front of you. Look at how the big trees lean in that creek, those grew on the banks before lake was made. Now Chance is almost 30 and he gets it. Dads box of old-school lures will work and $10,000 worth of electronics and another $10,000 to $15,000 in lures is not always necessary. Companies will build and sell you what every you fall for, and some of this is good stuff. On the other hand, dont forget that 100-bass days happened for years without Side Scan, Power-Poles and Spot-Lock All these are great tools; Im just saying if you just simplified fishing, one might be surprised at the end of the day!

    RE: Balog on fishing "truths" Thank you, J.B. another great article to think about. Keep 'em rolling. You word is bass fishing gospel to me.
