    The lake was a good choice for the Classic. The fish were just not on during the tournament. This happens at every lake at different times. It is nice to see the anglers fish where the fish are not jumping into the boat.

    The Bassmaster Classic is always fun to watch, but I feel Lake Conroe fishing small was not a good venue for the biggest tournament in the world. B.A.S.S. needs to expand its Classic locations. How about California? The Delta, for example. I didn't think Conroe gave the best anglers in the world enough room to shine.

    RE – Bass University gains environmental director – Good move for BU. In my opinion, B.A.S.S. and Operation Bass sit on the sidelines and say nothing about a lot of important environmental issues.

    RE: Angler killed in Texas – I'm trying not to be callous, a life is a precious thing, but with all due respect, we bass fishing folks tend to throw caution to the wind when it comes to seeking our favorite prey. True, these anglers did nothing wrong and I'm not blaming the victims, but when it comes to Mexico, even the fly-in bass camps have to employ a small army to protect the clients. Face it, Mexico's a Third World country with 80 percent of it controlled by one cartel or another. We anglers take our lives in our own hands when it comes to traveling there, or anywhere even close.

    RE: Angler killed in Texas – And to think we have people all over this country protesting our borders being closed. Wake up, America!

    RE: Classic poll – I wanted "anybody else," but it was not listed. As far as homies, I'm getting to the point of not being interested. That is very sad to say. Undue advantages are now common for locals. With all of the new tech, a local has a major advantage. Also, freezing your butt off in very early tournaments is getting to be unsafe, but what the heck, it's only a fishing tourney, right?

    When Is B.A.S.S. going to start a Western Open Series? We have some of the best lakes and anglers in the country out here.

    RE: Remembering Mabrey – At Bass Cat we are sanctioning the Kyle Mabrey Memorial event on July 1 for $1,000 in Quest incentives. Should a Bass Cat owner win the event, Quest will match the $1,000 and make a donation to the Kyle Mabrey Memorial. Kyle we called a friend – while he ran other boat brands, he was a friend. We spoke about tour-angling challenges, family and stepping out on tour several times when he was reaching to achieve Bassmaster and FLW professional status.

    We are saddened by his loss and will pray for his family and friends.

    RE: Remembering Mabrey –I knew "that big red headed dude." He was an awesome, positive person with a great passion for life and fishing. He will be missed and thought of often! RIP, bass'n brother.

    RE: Remembering Mabrey – Great tribute. Especially like the quote at the top of the article.

  • Mark Burgess of Norton, MA writes:

    RE: Remembering Mabrey – I remember when I got the news that Kyle had passed. My mind went to the memory of when I was fishing an FLW Series event on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. There was a lot of debris on the water and I hit something and disabled my boat. Back at the weigh-in I needed a ride to get my boat and get towed in. Kyle offered right away, even though he had his own stuff to get done. The friendship started then. RIP, Kyle.

  • Steve Quinn of Brainerd, MN writes:

    Great article on Kyle Mabrey! Thanks to Blake, Clent, Dave, and Russ for their great stories about this wonderful man. I was highly impressed by his friendliness, confidence, class, and fishing ability when I first met him on Toho at a PRADCO writer's event about 12 years ago. We published some fine photos with his smiling face. He will be greatly missed by all the bassin' community, his coworkers at the hospital, along with his loving family.

    RE: Balog on bass senses – I think that the lengthier the study, the more the data evens out. The glitter worm may be the only thing that they like today, so you would say that it is better. But maybe they preferred that color today and never again? Your trailer experience shows they liked it way better that day, but did they prefer it every day? Maybe, but I'm sure that you will throw that jig first next time you are on that body of water!

  • Dennis Pentecost of Milford, IL writes:

    I think Randall Tharp is a great bass fisherman, but he comes off as being arrogant sometimes. Not as bad as Mark Zona!

  • Dr. James C. Liao of Saint Augustine, FL writes:

    RE: Balog on bass senses – Great topic, and I agree not enough is known about it. My lab at UF specializes in recording from the lateral line nerves in fishes. Though we don't receive funding to study what makes a bass commit to a lure, as a tournament angler myself you can bet I pay attention to it when I design my experiments! I suspect that the lateral line system does not override the visual system – if this were the case, no bass would attack a swimbait because the vortex wake behind it is completely different from a real swimming fish. I think there are visual cues that cause bass to strike that we do not fully comprehend yet. Anyway, my 2 cents from a scientist's perspective.

  • Ron Mehr of Paynesville, MN writes:

    You forgot to include in the poll for the best story of 2016 Seth Feider's amazing rise to greatness at the end of the year. I might be a little biased being from Minnesota, but it still was pretty great! Love BassFan, btw!

  • Dave Mauldin of Round Rock, TX writes:

    RE: FLW at Travis – I have been fishing the lake a lot over the last 1 1/2 years. Their launch site is 20 minutes from my house, and I have not caught a big fish (over 4 pounds) since I started fishing the lake after it came back up.

    Two of the pros are staying with me, and I wish them five keepers, but I predict many will not have a limit, and many will not have even close to a limit, but will have caught 20 shorts during the day. Next year will be better!

  • Charlie Hartley of Grove City, OH writes:

    RE: Balog on Rose – Another great piece on an even greater angler and person. I have known Mark for 20-plus years. The world would be a better place with more people just like him, whether they were great anglers or not. Big Mark Rose fan, he is one of my favorites! I love when good people have great success!

    RE: 2018 Classic to Hartwell – This is sad. Round and round to the same few lakes.

  • Jeff Mitchell of Fish Lake, IN writes:

    So, how many rods over 8 feet were used in the first Elite tournament? How many will be used in Florida?
