One of our anglers was fishing the dam and I swung 100 or more yards out from him to cross where he was fishing. I made over a 200 yard semi-circle to get to the other side of the dam from him. After weigh-in, he started bitching me out for it, telling me I had no business fishing that close to him while I was running a tournament (when I say bitching me out, I mean full on cussing me). I was sitting there thinking, "I spent my Saturday running this [censored] thing, maybe making enough money to pay for my lunch, and now I'm getting a tongue lashing over something I didn't deserve."

After that I was done.

The most surprising thing in this post is that he didn't wait until he got home to blast you on your own forum.

No way in heck do I understand for the life of me why anyone would direct a tournament. Waaaaaaaay to many grown men want to bitch moan and groan about such small things in life. I remember days back in the Anglers Choice era where it seemed every tournament there was always someone pissed off about something silly, hasn't changed today.

I figured as much JP. Had no idea of that story but not surprising at all. I do think it would be fun to try to have a once a year big TFF tourney and have Potts and crew run it. Then everyone could complain about the following:


*Choice of lake
*Not paying enough places
*Paying too many places
*Pay back percentage is not high enough
*Not enough contingencies
*Trailering
*Not Trailering
*Too cold
*Too hot
*Too windy (this is a given)

I'm sure given some time I can think of some more.
