Should we petition B.A.S.S. WEEKEND SERIES to return
« on: February 28, 2009, 11:16:40 AM »

Id like to see how many of us tournament fisherman would commit to fish BWS if they returned and set up a equally divided michigan only trail that didnt conflict with the BFL.
By saying equally divided I mean both sides of the state and both smallies and largies.

I think the great lakes/michigan region has a ton of potential for B.A.S.S. WEEKEND SERIES if it was set up to be fair for both sides of the state.

I would most likely give it a try. I Probabily wouldn't fish the whole circuit, but I enjoy a pounding on by good anglers. ;D

I'd fish if they are still doing the $5,000 guranteed for first.  Without that $5,000 I wouldn't, I think this state is already spread too thin.  I wonder what that $5,000 would do for numbers in Michigan.

To everyone: Lets keep this thread ONLY for those who do want to fish a Michigan BASS weekend series. If you don't want to fish it or have other issues to talk about regarding this topic, please start a different thread.

If there's enough interest on here, maybe we can do a follow-up poll about the preferred make-up of the schedule as far as East/West or SW with other states involved, etc.

Thank you.

100% in as a boater as long as there is some variety!

Like some others I would fish as long as the events are split east/west. St. Clair, Saginaw Bay for the east and Muskegon, Grand, White on the west. Burt/Mullet, Charlevoix are closer for Detroit guys than for me so I don't consider those any "west side" events. Split the tournaments equally and I am in. Heck even a Wawasee in the spring before we open our season would be pretty sweet.

When you are in any contest you should work as if there whereto the very last minute a chance to loose it.

I would definitely be in with a split schedule as well.  I would try to go as a boater, but with a new little one on the way, may have to do co-angler this year...

I nominate Phil Smathers for division director. 8)

Yep, that would pretty much guarantee success! 

I'll vote to show up as a boater as well since you did specify East & West split evenly.

I would fish it only if it was split evenly between the east and west, also would like to see an early tournament in northern indiana or northerm MI or how about both.

NON BOATERS WHERE ARE YOU?

I could not think of a better way for a non boater or a novice to get out and fish and also learn a ton from some of the best guys in the sport, its only $100 for the non boater, in this economy that sure is a ton cheaper than having to own a boat.

I think if we are serious again we need to make some sort of sheet that we who want this thing back can take to the tournaments we fish this summer and see who is willing to fish. We could expose the concept to a lot more anglers that way and post a final list with email addresses or phone numbers to BASS. We could then post the names only on the forum if we choose to use it but more names and a contact for them to make them legit seems like the best way to prove people want to fish.

 John I think your right We as individuals that really want something in Michigan other then the big waters need to put something togather too bring this back. Im not a 100% sure but im sure you feeel the same way i do. we need a split on things. i mean we roll the same boat (if you still got the skeeter) and i just cant compete with that. i have the talent and mind set but im limited. im sure if i do them all i can make the regional. but its a hard one to shallow when u pretty much depend on the weather if your gonna get a check?-skeeterman-
