    With all the talk of the BPT modifying the format to five-fish limits, 2-pound minimums, etc., I find it interesting no one has mentioned having different tournaments with different formats. In other words, Tour stop No. 1 might be their most weight caught format and Tour stop No. 2 be largest five-fish limit format. Seems pretty simple and would make it even more interesting watching anglers adjust strategies. Also seems it would level the field more between anglers with varying styles of fishing.

    RE: Kriet's tough year – Jeff Kriet seems like a very likable guy and a great bass angler, but after watching him for several years I think he is his own worst enemy.

    RE: Pradco acquires Gene Larew – So Pradco has bought out another competitor’s brand. I wonder if they leave out the best products that the competitor offered. Prime example, when they bought out XCalibur they left out one of the best if not the best rattlebaits ever to come out. The 1/4-ounce gold One Knocker was, with out a doubt, head and shoulders above anything else I fished. Now you can find them on eBay for $30 or more. What will they leave out of the lineup this time?

    RE: Tournament formats – I agree with the comments Davy Hite made about having to trust your gut and instincts when you don't know how others are doing in a tournament situation. This is one of the biggest complaints I have about the MLF format – it corrupts the decision-making of the angler.

    Fishing does not need to be like other sports. What is wrong with being unique? The irony is that in attempting to turn fishing into a sport like other big league sports, MLF/BPT has turned it into a fishing show for entertainment rather than becoming the "purest form of fishing" or sport that they intended it to be.

    RE: Confidence baits – Senko, black and red flake, weightless. Sometimes with smelly jelly.

    RE: World Rankings – No Chris Zaldain in the top 10? You need to revamp the rankings system – too much credit to the BPT anglers with the current system.

    RE: Ike on small buzzbaits – 1/8-ounce Bill Norman's Triple Wing buzzbait. The original model with the riveted blades. Yup, they worked!

    Rick Riles' comments about FLW are ridiculous. At present, 9/2/2019, five of the top 10 B.A.S.S. Elite anglers and four of the top 10 in the MLF/BPT Redcrest Championship are former FLW "weekenders."

    FLW anglers are absolutely many of the best anglers in the business. Many of them choose to fish FLW and would be very successful in any format and against any other field in the industry.

    It is great to have both formats available.
