I get the feeling FLW will be cutting back next year, hopefully that does not affect the MI division. There was a discussion on another board with guys around the country asking the same thing.

Maybe the tournament director before Anthony had it right. He always told me that they had tried starting the MI Div. Series in other lakes but only did well on boat draws when the series was started in Lk. St. Clair. That is why he always started at Metro. I believe the numbers started to decline prior to this economic down turn when they changed the schedule.

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.

Phil,
Anthony was definitely not cut from the staff. He was without a doubt the best tournament director I have ever dealt with in the 20 years of tourney fishing I have done. Unfortunately, Anthony did not draw out for Michigan in the pool they put in for every year. I am not at liberty to explain what happened, but I hope he will be back the following year. I really think that FLW may move him up higher in the ranks, but do not know for sure. He is very gifted at what he does and FLW would be crazy not to do more with him. I believe that the BFL will be back next year although that is not in stone. There is a good chance Burt and Mullett will be our first stop and I believe we will be staying on Erie and St Clair after that.

I fished the Okie division for a year - Mark McWha was the director.  Good guy - everything ran smoothly. 

I will miss Anthony for sure.  I agree with Heath, best tx director I have ever seen.

Rumor I heard was schedule just like this year, except Sandusky is replaced with Detroit River.  But thats just a rumor, I have no facts.

Seth did you get your skeg fixed?

Posted on another site today:

I know several guys are looking for the schedule's, I got a call back from FLW Outdoors and the guy I talked to went over to the main board and called off the schedules for next year that I was looking for. He said they are about 95% set right now (still waiting on a couple of permits to come through). They said they hope to have the schedule's on the website by next Wednesday, if the final permits come through

No, nothing has been fixed (truck, prop or skeg).  I backed the boat into the garage and have not done anything with it.  I did put stabil in the fuel and ran it briefly on Wolverine, but thats it.

Talked to Robert Vanderson two weeks ago, he said to feel free to call him at FLW.  The tenative schedule is Burt mullet First weekend of June.  Detroit River at the beginning of July, Metro Beach at the end of July, Detroit river Aug. 20, and he wasn't sure if they were going to do Metro Beach or Detroit river for the Super Tournament in September.  The regional is at Kentucky Lake around the end of October.  Hope this helps guys

Jighead

If that's close to being right, I like it.  No Sandusky, and a Kentucky Lake regional.  It would be nice to do a St. Clair super tournament for a change of pace.  It seems like the super's been on the river forever.

Is Rob V. our new TD?

There have been a few more qualifiers from Michigan than that and I would include the Great Lakes region / Michigan division in that, not just Michigan residents. If I recall, the regional can not be held on a body of water that any of the divisions have fished that year so we could not fish St. Clair, Detroit River or some part of Lake Erie unless it is off the schedule that year. The weather is a big part also, but so are facilities and local support.

Burt and Mullett and other northern waters have been considered. Facilities and weather are part of the issues up there also, but I think we may be able to continue to impact our chances by working for more knowledge of, and acceptance of our sport by government and civic bodies who can drive the level of support (or we could build a big marina on one of the northern chains?).

Personally, I don't mind competing on new waters or even waters that might be considered local to other anglers. There are so many factors involved in successful tournament fishing, and that is part of the challenge of being a well-rounded, successful tournament angler. When you do well, it feels that much more like a great experience and accomplishment.

Michigan anglers should be successful and very well-rounded. Just ask the KVD guy...

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.

Dan Kimmel should be on that list. He fished the 2001 All American with myself.

Team houston

Well as long as you are not getting nit picky. Since they use to take eight and now they take six because there are more divisions. For those who are interested Dan came in 7th.

I didn't see a regional listed.  Did I just miss it?

Yeah, no kidding.   :(

2 of the 3 northern strens overlap with the BFL also.

Too bad, I really want the BFL to grow.  When I fished the NE division, we had full 200 boat fields.  So much fun.  I don't see it getting any bigger in 2010 with the schedule conflicts.

I am thinking about the Strens, I love the schedule.  Down side is that there is not a no-entry fee championship in 2010.
