  1. From a podcast I listened too... they have to continue the Cup events because of sponsorship deals....I am sure there are other reasons... for continuing the cup events while introducing the BPT tour events. It will make more sense as time goes on... I love the format... I would personally rather catch 50 under two pounds as to catch 5 five big ones in one day. I feel I might learn something more from this format... but to each his own.
  2. I wonder if it was Dave Lefebre that was talking to Bill and his clients.... he has a lime green boat... and from what I have watched.. sounds like something he might do...
  3. Templefork makes some great rods for 100$ I also like Falcon.. they have been great to stand behind the rods. I love my Tatula... but also like my lews reels as well. Some of the bass pro reels are good.. the white ones /carbonlite are not as good as the cheaper... pro qualifer.. I got some of those for about 70$ and they work very good.
  4. I have the regular Panoptix and like it. Learning curve is still going on. But the ability to see brush piles and schools of fish is helpful. I wish I had the livescope.
  5. I fished two Bass opens as a co angler. Really enjoyed the experience overall. Learned from all 4 boaters. Two of them knew quite a bit more, one had been on the elite series before an illness. They were all great to spend the day with, and truly enjoyed it when I caught fish. Cost was about 450$ per tournament plus they encourage helping with fuel, about 40$ per day. I agree with Bill, that many are everyday guys, that have had some success somewhere, but are not not necessarily way better than many locals. But this event also had some truly top notch talent, Elam, McClelland, Clouse, Even the elite guy at the end of the day asked me if I had a spot and we went and each caught a keeper. It was great fun, and did offer the possibility of winning some money, although that was not my motivation to enter the event. I hope to do it again, it make me realize how hard the pros and guides work to fish everyday. The days are very long.
  6. Fished Eagle rock to point 23 Friday... caught more fish at Eagle Rock than we did down lake.... could have been the time of day... was at Eagle Rock at dusk to after dark. Caught some on drop shot, and spro rock crawler... and a spook...nothing of any real size .. one was 16 inches... I don't think it ruined the fishing there.
  7. Rick Brouwer in Rogers does a great job. Charges 10$.
  8. temple fork rods... can buy off amazon for 100$ delivered... For the money I think they are great.
  9. Got to go with my oldest son and future son in law. Top water off main lake points was on. Had a great time. Finished with 24 for the day. Bomber wake bait in bone color worked best. Plopper caught some as well. Later caught some on swim bait and under spin. And a couple on the Ned. Had lower unit issues but fortunately on the way back . It seemed to kick out of gear while running down the lake was able to idle back the last mile or so. When trying to get n plane it would go fo a bit then kick out of gear. Still had a great day. I am very blessed Boat is in the shop and I will probably only miss one morning of fishing time. Because of wedding and other commitments. . Wacky worm pic is from previous trip with future son in law. have a great weekend.

  11. Bill thanks for the report. I still laugh from your post when you offered to be blindfolded and have Alex take you to his honey hole. Enjoy reading and learning from you.
  12. sold... sorry to be so slow responding
  13. Look at Templefork rods.. love mine... have them on Amazon as well
  14. Thanks for the feedback... I also need to get a NU-Tech... I like the jigs..so the blade bait might be good as well.
