Our own Skip Johnson finished his tournament on the Detroit River in 20th place in the FLW Tour.  He gets a check for $10,720.  I'd like to be the first to congratulate you.  Nice job Skip!!!  Way to represent!!!         :D         8)

Back to back high finishes in national events. He seemed pretty happy.

Thank you Bill, just seen this post for the first time.
It's going to be tight but I cashed just about enough checks this year to fund most of the 2013 FLW Tour season, hopefully I can cash a few checks again so I can stay in the game.
I'm fishing the Tour about 4 years sooner than planned because my business in this economy is crappy, at this time it's 100% without sponsor $ = 100% on my $ all while trying to keep my wife in Med school and feed my family etc etc, just a bit scary dropping that kind of $ on 6 tournaments, my fingers and toes are crossed that I hold my own against the best sticks in the country.

Looking like I'm doing Bassmaster Northern and possibly Southern Opens instead. As much as I want to fish the Tour right now I want to take a few more swings trying to qualify for my dream of fishing the Bassmaster Classic.  :-\'
