Split the sides and run a championship in the middle. Another idea is running it like a non boater draw tourney like the Redman used to. It's been awhile since we seen that on the west side of the state.

Not to get ahead of the game here but that is exactly what 2011 will look like except the sides won't be split it will be one tournament - 1 on Muskegon, 1 on St. Clair, 1 on the Grand, and 1 on the Detroit River and then go to Sanford or Wixom for the Championship.  It's similiar to the Michigan BFL schedule when they close to 200 boats an event back the mid-90's.  It covers the largest demographic of anglers on 2 lakes and 2 rivers and then fishes an excellent fishery to wrap up.  I like to hear some opinions on that one.

On a Grand Daddy note I think the biggest shot in 2010 for a 150 - 200 boat field is on August 1st @ the Wonderland West Open - it works out perfectly because a lot of guys will already be over there for the BFL the day before.

Need this topic to go over the 3 Grand mark - I guess I can just have a conversation with myself.  Where's BASSFISHERMAN when you need him?

I do not think that there is anything that can be done for this year, as far as a 150-200 boat tournament goes. I would suggest to take a look at what other circuits are running tournaments this year, see what their schedules are. Most circuits will fish the same lakes around the same time of year. If you can find a weekend with no, or very little tournaments, plan on that weekend for next year and advertise, advertise, advertise between now and then. When the BASS weekend series fished here, nobody really knew about it (lack of advertising). Now, because they did not have the turnout they wanted, they are no longer here. I would definately be in if there is going to be 100 or more boats, especially anything that is on the west 2/3 of the state. There are already a fair number of bigger tournaments on the east side of the state (BFL, BASS Open, etc.) We need one on the west side.

You're actually sounding like you are formulating a good thing here. My (one mans) oppy since you asked, is dont get tied on the symetry of lakes and rivers (since Lake St Clair is technically a river system). Instead take the Muskegon, Grand and St Clair in a simple format (pre spawn, pre summer, and mid summer) - and I propose a great fall classic - a crankbait fest testing the skills of all anglers - on Burt Mullet, and everyone knows there's a huge difference going there during spawn versus fall, and everyone knows, theres a load a feeding 5 lb fish there. I do think a good sponsor (BPS, Wonderland, an auto company who needs to get back in the good graces of the american ppl lol !) could be approached if you gather a petition with all us signed showing 300 or 400 ppl willing to compete in the format you are formulating, heck... it could work.

If you want the big draw you need to start the season on Clair.

What's with the news these days on the TV and the radio. Can't find the truth amongst the lies. Some talking head that claims to live their life in a better way, says I have to compromise. But now there's something on the rise. Truth has opened up my eyes. There's no running from your dirty lies. You can't avoid the truth. I'll no longer close my eyes.
