    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.

    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.

    Luke I like how you group all people against it as the ones getting beat by it. I'm sure they may make up the most outspoken group but I can assure you that it doesn't make up the majority. I personally don't know of any tourney where it has beaten me. While I'm sure there is at least one, it doesn't form my opinion of it. I still believe like the rest of you that's it's not magic... But I also believe it's not good for the fishery and it leans on the side of being unethical like putting out corn for deer or ducks.

    The moss growing on the carpet next to the wheels is a really nice touch. Gives it that......natural effect.

    Chris-give Craig France a call @ Watsons, he's gonna give you the same advice as I listed above. Also, a keep in mind that lower Octane gas burns hotter than Higher Octane gas. Lower Octane will also cause more dramatic Carbon build up on the rings & head.

    We discussed this last year and can revisit it but my personal feeling is that you have the oportunity to win the same amount of money so why would you not pay the same entry fee? If 2 anglers are in one boat fishing as a team they usually divide the winnings. Lets say 10 boats show up they have to divide 300 dollars. Now if you fish by yourself and you win you would still get 300 dollars and not have to split it so you just won double the money and only paid half the entry fee. I have fished several txs solo and even took my 7 year old son as a partner in a couple and have never got a break on the entry fee. The only way I could see that working is to fish individual weights and I dont like that idea at all unless it is a random pairing tournament which alot of people dont like either. This is just my feelings about it and it would be a nightmare to keep up with what money goes where. As it stands now $30 of the entry goes to the payback for places, $5 goes to Big fish, and $5 goes to the classic. This is what makes up the $40 entry fee. I think everyone on the tournament committee would be open to discuss this and I will bring it up at our next meeting but as I said I personally don't feel it is fair to the guys that have to pay full entry fee then split the winnings. JMHO

    The little spots around here are very aggressive little fish and if you get in to a bunch of them they make it hard to keep your lure in the water long enough to catch bigger fish. When I watch fishing shows of people spot fishing in Alabama and Georgia catch 3 and 4 pounders I'm jealous. If they grew to that size here I would love fishing for them as much as I like LM and SM fishing but they just don't grow big enough here.
