I think they just put the pedal down and pucker up the old brown eye. It's not like they have to pay for it it they hit a stump.

These guys didn't get to be Elite's by being stupid. Having said that, there are not enough maps, notes, and local information that will substitute for personal experience on lakes like Palestine and Ray Roberts that have no designated boat lanes. There are areas on both lakes where 10ft. in either direction could spell trouble. There was a local on Toledo Bend, I say local he guided part time, and I witness him knocking is 200hp outboard plumb off the transom once. This was just north of the Pendleton bridge before the boat lane markers were put in. So I'm thinking these guys do their homework before they run helter skelter across these tournament lakes that are new to them. Like the TV ads say, these guys are good.

This...but only after they get locals and team members to share a little knowledge.
I know that NOT ALL do this though. I've been with some and we were on plane praying the whole day.

I don't know I heard Biffle put the pedal down booking it up the river at Hubbard and not taking your traditional path telling the marshal "if you can't see it, it isn't there."

I can attest to that. He was at a show in Joplin, Mo. and I ask him about running new areas especially rivers where the snaggs are always changing. He commented "I run with the mindset if I don't see it, it isn't there"

Yep...Biffle shredded a lower unit at RossBarnett a couple years back. Talked to him at the Mercury trailer that night. The next day he had a new lower on his boat.

I've ridden as a marshall and I will say this, if they get information then the people giving it do not know squat. They have scared me to death. Most of them I have asked this question to have all said they study google earth back dated
