    Bass Pro Tour Changing Tournament Fishing Forever

    I "boat-captain'd" for my grandson this year and several of the high school tournaments he fished were in the SATT - Student Angler Tournament Trail - https://www.studentangler.org/ The trail is strictly MLF format. The first event had 134 boats and the second had 83 and I was mighty impressed with how smoothly they ran. One of the organizers has written a custom app for smartphones that allows upload of pictures that we take while each fish is weighed on a supplied scale along with data that we enter: angler team, weight, and species, LM or SM. The data is tabulated real-time and there is a live leaderboard in the app so I could keep the boys posted on where they stood. We were allowed to launch and return to any of the available boat ramps on the lake and it was really nice to avoid the cluster of a weigh-in with that many boats. The app also had a boat check-in and check-out feature ensuring that all boats got on and off the water. While the adult boat captain is no absolute guarantee against cheating (eg, over-zealous parent), it certainly ensures that it is kept to a minimum if not avoided completely. I certainly don't understand the business/sponsorship side of it, but it surprises me a bit that the sponsors are willing to go with a no weigh-in format. All of these kids are wearing jerseys and the way in which the tackle and boat companies are salivating over this upcoming generation of buyers is laughable, to this old fellow anyway.

    Invasive Species Redux

    Kind of hard to see. Their natural color blends in so well with the surroundings.

    Anyone see this? This guy is off his rocker.

    Perhaps he teaches an English Fiction class?

    Quite the day

    Truly delighted to see that you are fishing. I would have to think that with all you and your family have been through lately, it is extra sweet this time. Hoping you have a wonderful trip.

    Another Tough Day on the Rock

    You are not alone sir. In 5 years of coming down here for the months of March and April, I've never seen it this tough. I am reminded of a quote by fly-fishing author, Thomas McGuane: "What is emphatic about angling is made so by the long silences - the unproductive periods." Personally, I am ready for some "emphatic".

    My bad. They had him up there at the start of the pro side weigh-in in the hot seat without any fish. Odd.

    Distance Between...

    Being from MN, I consider myself somewhat hardy when it comes to cold weather. But, I have to hand it to you. Running that distance yesterday morning with temps at the freezing mark is nothing less than impressive (if not a little crazy). I saw others blasting around during the early morning hours and I remember thinking that I was glad I didn't have a derby yesterday.

    Distance Between...

    The Fishing Hot Spots maps have mile markers denoted on the channels. It shows KC to Aunts to be approx 9 1/2 miles. From KC to the dam, 14 miles.

    Another Morning on the Upper End

    What sort of water clarity were you seeing up there? Seems like the clearer the water, the better the Ned works? Nice catch by the way!
