    EASY EASY! cool the jets. I have no problem with you liking the Ally better, that is fine, great boat. I was just making a comment about your statement "stole the show". That was not a correct comment. Everyone likes different rigs and for different reasons. If you would have just said I like the Ally better then fine but "stole the show was not a factual statement". .

    The issue with Mr. Coontracker selling items on here has been addressed, Joe. Let it rest. All members are free to post in this forum regarding things they make and pics are always welcome. As far as anything that has taken place on the other site, TNBF would appreciate it if youd leave the drama over there.

    "the idiot rig" as i call it, embodies much of whats wrong with our instant gratification society. take the easy way!!!! i want to catch fish now, not LEARN how to FISH, just CATCH them NOW!!!! like shannon said, when people who couldn't catch a 4lber with a dipnet, are bringing 20+lb. bags in, SOMETHING IS WRONG!!!! tx fising should be a test of skill, not a game of chance!!! when i started bass fishing i sucked, bad, real bad! but, i stuck with it, and LEARNED to get better. i'll never be a pro, never fish the bassmaster classic, but i'm a decent fisherman. how did i get that way?......thru EFFORT!!!!! i wanted to get better, i learned to get better, i'm still learning, and most of you guy's did it the same way as i did. thru your own EFFORT!!! now, with this frigging rig, somebody who just leaned how to cast last night can show up and beat us. it's turning tx fishing into bingo. and pro's throwing it.... REALLY, you call yourself a "professional angler" and your throw'n this thing where kids can see you do it??? what kind of message is that sending...."sell out for success, kids!!!" watching a "pro" throw the idiot rig, is like watching jesse james ride a big wheel! no wonder this country has went to heII in a handbasket........no integrity.

    it's like the mexicans coming across the border, shoot the first two or three, and the rest will quit that chit on their own!

    I personally don't like it. When you see people who have never weighed in a limit bring in 20lbs it seems to me it is more about the rig and less about the fisherman. I hate throwing it but if you don't you are at a great disadvantage against people who do use it. I am waiting on warmer temps where the rig is useless and you have to go back to fishing and not just chucking and winding a rig.

    I'll pass along one that a member here once shared with me.....go to Lowes & buy a roll of static cling window tinting. Cut a piece to fit your electronics screen, stick it on after dark. Not only does it dim the light, but it also cuts the glare down

    First, welcome to the site. That's a heckuva first post. Very controversial topic. I am in no way a huge fan of the A rig....mostly because I can't seem to do much good with it.......but how does an A rig, which is 100% artificial, compare to using a live deer or turkey decoy? I would think that correlation would be between live bait & live decoys...... As for it not being "sporting" to use them, I disagree there too. You still have to find the fish & get em to eat. Most.....and I stress MOST not ALL......of the folks that dislike the rig are guys like me that can't figure out how to properly use it.

    Congratulations to the winners!!!!!! I love fishing this trail, there is never a dull moment before, during or after a tourney. How may tournaments do you fish where during the course of a tournament you get texts and pictures from the other guys rubbing it in what they are catching? And if ya run into someone on the water while you're out there you talk and give each other crap while your fishing near each other. If any of you have thought about fishing with us, but haven't come on out, I promise you'll have a blast and meet some really good guys.

    There are no changes to the points system that was in place for the 2014 season. 1. Only members in good standing are eligible to receive points for the trail. 2. Points will be awarded as individual points. If 2 members fish an event as a team, both anglers will receive the points earned for that event. 3. Members will be allowed to drop their lowest two(2) tournament scores. This includes missed tournaments. 4. If 2 teams have the same total weight, points totals will be determined by who has the biggest fish. 5. At the end of the year, an "Angler Of The Year" list will be determined by points totals. Awards will be given to the top 6 individual places, or 3 teams. 6. In the event of a tie for "AOY", the tie-breaker will be determined by the biggest fish weighed in from the tied members throughout the year. If the tied members are teammates, no distinction will be made. The points system looks like this: Winner = 20points 2nd = 17 points 3rd = 16 points 4th = 15 points.......each place will drop one point until: 18th = 1 point....all finishers 18th or farther will be awarded 1 point. **Anglers are only eligible for these points if you weigh a fish in the tournament** Additionally, points will be awarded as follows: 10 points for participation will be added for every contestant who fishes the tournament. 2 bonus points will be awarded for Big Fish 1 bonus point will be awarded for each fish weighed in(if you have 5 fish, you get 5 bonus points. 3 fish, 3 bonus points, etc.)

    i see no difference in allowing the rig in a tx and allowing live bait

    I really could have picked all three of the choices. I use a leader based on several different factors. water color, bait you are using, structure you are fishing, and speed you are fishing all have influence on whether I use a leader or not. You need an all the above selection.
