First let me say I know these guys are way better than me, but this is what drives me crazy about "pro" fishing. It's no different than a bass club with donors and sticks just with a much bigger entry fee at the ramp. Why no churn, why no going back to q school? Probably no real sponsorship of either tour; just passing a bigger glass jar around to the "pros".
Tell that to Carl Jocumsen.
Did you pay attention to last year? If your not in the top 70 then it goes back to your standings over a period of time. A number didn't requalify last year. New Qualifiers get 2 years to make the top 70 then they are out to requalify. More will be out this year.
