I'm not complainin'... I got to catch a couple hundred bass in Mexico a few weeks ago!!!!!!!! BIG bass!!! ;D

I do like to set the record straight though when necessary.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

Hang in ther, BigDog, us young guys will get the auto market turned around sooner or later.  I just hope some of us are still left when the dust settles!  I watched them walk out 7 salary guys from my Plant and a total of 78 for my site.  They were using my office to tell them, can you imagine that!  I had to try to avoid the area for the whole day, not easy when you work in Quality Assurance and the customer is calling.  Another couple hundred hourly guys took the buy-outs too.  We are lots lighter than we were at Christmas, that's for sure.

As for Forrest, it sounds like I had the wrong guy. ::)  Irwin whats-his-name is the guy behind it all...   I do admit that I don't follow the F'in - L - Dubbya too closely but there are some things they've done I didn't agree with.  I'm sure there's propaganda aplenty from both sides, so let's leave it at that.

I'm not going to bash either but I'm finally putting in my two cents. I will tell you what I know for a fact. Irwin Jacobs told a friend of mine in the industry, a source I believe 100%, that he started FLW to run BASS out of business. He is a businessman and would screw anyone in a heart beat but he has helped FLW grow so much by bringing in multiple huge sponsors and filling his pocket at the same time. Trust me Irwin does not want to lose a dime so FLW will continue to grow and is easier to get in to. The college series is also giving us young guys the best opportunities that could even be thought of for college fishing at this time, closest thing to becoming a sport as college angling has ever been.

BASS gives an angler greater opportunities for sponsorship dollars but not much is out there, even in good times a lot of the field hardly gets any cash dollars for sponsorship. It is very expensive and hard to get on the Tour. Ray Scott was great for BASS anglers and after ESPN took it over they have a plan to make money and it does not look good for the next few years, but we will see what happens. It is the most notable tour though and probably will always be despite what may come in the future. If I could ever qualify for one tour this would be the one I hope to make, even if I would make less.

Both have their pluses and both have a lot of problems so why can we not just leave it at that.

P.S. I hate to say it but the auto market is never coming back, we need to invest in alternative energies, ETC to keep out good state, and country, going and people working! If we don't China will make whatever we need for a fraction of the cost and they make Ford vehicles already in China, identical to the ones made here, at labor rates of about $5 an hour. Why would Ford not screw everyone here and import from them in the future?

Ditto what he just said.  Not going to say what I think I should say because that will stir the pot more.  Good luck to all this season!!
