Only 5 boats paid from what I hear. Still seamed like they should have held the tournament some guys paid way in advance and had spent a lot of time prefishing. They will get their entry back but not all the gas money and time they spent on the lake. Just my opinion I realize it's a business and they need to make money, but sometimes you just need to bite the bullet.

The original on Ray Bob was cancelled also. The backup tourney to take its placeon cedar creek was cancelled.
I spent weeks practicing for CC only to have it canceled the week of.
Unfortunate? Yes. Wrote it off as a loss and moved on.
But they have to what they have to do. I don't blame them a bit. If they held it with 5 teams they would lose a ton of money in operations and payout.

The only reason the trail is around is because guys said they wanted it, but it comes down to it and no one wants to sign up. I would like to see them fire back up full swing next year. It has great potential.

And before someone asks, no I didn't sign up for this Ray Bob tourney. Had prior arrangements and no time for practice either way.

That's one point of view, here's mine, I just wasted 72 hours of vacation time , alot of fuel money, alot of time . They knew Sunday when it was the last day to sign up they weren't going to have it , they should have called then not the night before practice starts .

This was the best idea for a tournament in many years. I fished two years ago and there was over 150 boats . Then I started hearing fisherman complain about some rules and some changes being made for certain anglers . Well here's what happens when the fishing community loses trust

As far as the business side and them making money or not should be a non issue . They said they were going to have a tournament , five people signed up , you fish it . Yes, you may lose money but you save face and earn anglers trust .

The lakes they cancelled last year were from flooding , this is way different .

To top it off I have been sitting on my couch for three days because the lake was off limits. Guess il go fishing

In the words of Forest Gump, " that's all I have to say about that".

I was not registered for the tournament, although I really wanted to. I completely agree with Brad's line of thought. There is a reason the field was at 150 when it started and has got down to where it is now. If I had burned the amount of vacation that he has to fish the tournament and then it gets canceled a day before prefishing starts I would have a very hard time biting my tongue. It should have been canceled when only 5 people had registered or they should have held the tournament.

At least it was cancelled a few days before the Tournament, I guess it was to be this weekend.

A few years ago on Roberts back when it was slot we had some tournament cancelled around 2 am Saturday the day of the Tournament, and many had pre paid, I can't remember the name of the trail and they maybe gone now or ran under another name.

But it was claimed because of wind, rumor was turn out was to be low. And yes many people spent time including me finding fish and burning gas, etc...

I fished all the first year when it was $1000 The fields were not at a 150. It was capped at 100. Only 1 event, the rayburn had 100. A bunch of the rayburn guys put deposits down to fish all just to get into rayburn then bailed. After that 80-90 give or take when they opened up registration again. It had a ton of potential it got a ton of press. It was a great idea. I think there were a couple of mistakes made early regarding schedules changing and some off limits problems. It would be nice to see it be reworked and rerolled out at some point. If there were only 5 entries what was really the point. Brad I know you were participating and it's a bummer. I imagine a whole bunch will pile on that never spent a nickel on the deal and never intended to. But that's how it goes with trails in Texas. I give credit to them for trying something completely new. Unfortunately the cutting edge can be a tough deal. I know they put a ton of work into the deal.

From what I have seen that platinum trail has been a major bust.

And that is what killed this trail. Was never advertised as a jackpotter's trail, though the way the rules were set up, that's exactly what it became.
