No thanks, but I may throw the ball around down on the field after the game.


Go ahead, hope I'm there to watch when the security guards chase you, lol, but I get your point. difference is the game is over. The game wasn't over when those guys got on Tak's field. Look, you do what you feel like doing and you will not get arrested for fishing their spots before, during or after the day is over. Just hope it doesn't change the outcome. Uh oh time to go dinner is ready. Have a goodun. Later tater.

I mentioned this earlier, it is quite possible the person coming in behind the pro and wearing out his spot, may have been doing it intentionally, to intentionally ruin the prosperity of it possibly for the next day, maybe this guy was a fan of some other angler in the top 5? Anything is possible.

Got it, and fair point about it not being over in your eyes. I would never be on the lake during an elite event and wouldn't be in this situation, but I also wouldn't expect people not fish an area because I was there for the next 4 days.

I think most all of us if we sit around and watch a pro fisherman fish a spot, can figure out how to catch those same fish. We will sore mouth them were the pro can not come back the next day and win a tournament he needs to win to feed his family. The difference is a person gets the inside on where and what these pros or doing to catch fish that you will not get from watching a football game or soccer because most of us where never good enough to play pro sports we just wish we where and no matter how much we watch it we will never do what they are doing. We can watch a pro fisherman enough to catch the fish he is catching and where to catch them and what time of day the same with guides. I guess from my stand point BIG difference in fishing pro's and other sports and business men doing their job. just my .02


Fair enough, and a valid argument, thank you for not just resorting to name calling and bullying like the old timers on here that think every should be like minded.

I would say this though, if the argument is that everyone can replicate what the Pro Fisherman is doing after watching them, then why arent we all good enough to be Pro's. I believe there is something these guys do, and figure out, that make them that much better then me at catching fish. This seems like a good example because it didnt actually keep Tak from catching fish the next day. It would be like me hitting a fast ball, but not a 100 MPH fast ball. Every now and then, if i close my eyes and just swing across the plate then I might connect with a 100 MPH fastball, but it isnt likely.

And as for the business men doing their job, it was everyone else on here that kept saying this was the Pro Fisherman's job and how he feeds his family, does that not make it their business?

And thank you to Ken for continuing to respond with no argument of your own, and you too Gig'em for piggy backing.


You're welcome dude anytime, Ken just beat me to it. Let's face it, you got surrounded like General Custer. You want an argument for my point of view, here you go. No other sport allows spectators on the field of play except professional fishing. Those who do follow these pro's while they try to make a living do so for various reasons, some just to observe but others want to catch their fish and therein could change the outcome of the tournament which in my mind is flat out wrong. These guys fishing Tak's spot after he left for the day reminds me of Steve Bartman. If the name doesn't ring a bell google it. Because he interfered in a MLB championship game it most likely caused the Chicago Cubs a World Championship. Things turned out different for Tak because he had such a big lead going into the final day but it could have turned out much different. Tak had been in a slump and really needed and deserved the win. I won't make any excuses for you or anyone else who thinks it's ok to interfere in any sport. Just because they legally let you on their playing field doesn't give anyone the right to interfere in their business and possibly change the outcome. If you're feeling frisky and want to get it on with the pro's jump onto the field the next time the Cowboy's play. thumb

These guys are fishing public lakes get over it . Most people could care less about any of this.

Someone a couple pages back said that they personally witnessed Tak poaching guides holes on Fork. Shouldnít the same standard apply to them also. The pros canít complain about something they practice just because they are on the short end of it.Not a tourney but still possibly affecting the guides livelihood by pressuring his spots. Maybe he was just getting what he gives. Canít be stopped so why get worked up about it.

People can accuse anyone of anything, unless he can prove it it didn't happen. Believe nothing you hear or read and only half of what you see.

You offended my wife.

Jk.

......my only question on this story.

Why? Why would you fish the spot? Obviously tak had worn it out. I'm sure they didn't get bit one freakin time.

I did see the one boater with the super high powered lens on his camera. That would be fun. Seeing exactly what baits were used, etc.

Donít know if itís true or not and donít really care. Man said he had first hand account. If you want to call him out as a liar thatís on you. Just pointing out that there is a flip side to this thread. Just because these guys are pros donít mean they all act right. Maybe Tak did maybe he didnít. Maybe he was wronged or maybe he got what was coming. Iím not judging one way or the other. We choose our professions and all the BS that comes with it. Pro Bass Anglers and guides get followed and have their spots jumped. Part of their BS just deal with it and move on. Like I said it canít be stopped so why waste energy on it.

Here is an example... IBM was making computers and operating systems. Folks like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates watched them catch fish, then came in on their spot and poached....

It happens in industry (build a better widget) all the time. They may not come to your specific job, but they compete on the lake in your spot when you were there first. roflmao

Most peoples character was developed long before they started fishing.....the "freedom" on the water to do what you want just allows that character to be seen by others.

Also possible it was a Tak fan who swooped in to fake fish and protect the spot from others - weíll never know. For me I love to read about the pros and all they do but if I know there is s big tourney of any kind I am going somewhere else. I think a lot of guys follow but donít fish but always seems to hear of the followers getting in too close ... I canít imagine sittiní In the boat safely out of the way watching a pro fish. All that said we all end up on a lake where a tourney is going on, just the way it is, respect others, give the other guy plenty of space and hope for the best.

These threads always make me smile. If some one is on your spot on fork and you come back by an hour later and they're gone you're probably going to make a cast or two to see if they caught them. You do this because it's not their spot. The day of a tourney there are going to be folks fishing because it's the day they can fish. If they see KVD on "their" spot whether they know who KVD is or not they may hit if he leaves. No moral issue, it's just another day on the water to them. If tourney entrants haven't learned to live with this they have a hard road ahead. You people who get all tight in the fanny over this need to remember that 99% of the folks who fish don't fish tourneys and don't care if you do. de
