Is it worth weighing in a fish for $200 and miss fishing time? We want to win the boat. No Time for $200.

Just wondering what yall do.

PS. We did'nt win the boat. Can I borrow a couple of hundred dollors?

If you don't care about $200 then you answered your question

Why wouldn't you do it to at least break-even? It isn't losing that much fishing time out of a day if you time it right.

Kurt you gotta fish closer to LFM, pop in for a ck and pop back out... 30-mins tops-if you time it right... cheers
I believe if it's in the cards to catch a fat under, you have to weigh it in $$$.. You can catch the big winner the next hour... grin

Big bass tournaments are completely a game of strategy for everyone except the guy who catches the really big one, and he's sure the fish will win it all. I've been in a similar position many times. Last year at the McDs on Rayburn, I caught a $500 fish right off the bat on the final day. I decided to hang around and fish a little longer after I had spent an hour or two trying to run a fish in for a check the day before. Looking back, I should have weighed it in. Similar situation this year on Palestine (much smaller lake than Rayburn). I tried to find a good weigh in for a fish I caught early and went to three different weigh-ins before I finally decided to cross the scales. Ended up making $300, which covered my entry and gas for the weekend. I wouldn't change the decision to try and get that fish in. There are so many anglers at these big bass tournaments. If you catch a fish that you think will be in the money, I'd try to weigh it in and get the check. As long as he is in your live well or if you toss him back right away and later realize you would have gotten a check, that will be in the back of your mind for a while. For me, thinking about anything but catching the big one takes away from my focus, and I want to be focused when a boat is on the line. Again, it's a game of strategy, and everyone has to decide how they want to play the game.
