Who plans on fishing these next year as a pro or co? I plan to fish as a co again.

Man I don't know... those 2 clear water lakes kicked my a&& this year. 1 fish weighed in over 4 days between Table Rock and Grand. I did ok on the Sabine but didn't have a limit the first day. How'd you fare?

I def like the Arkansas and Red River tourneys next year! Ross Barnett is a [censored] lake. They didn't deserve an Elite nor an Open. Never been to the Alabama lake so that might be fun.

I had 1 keeper on Table Rock and 1 keeper at Grand. I practiced during grand and quickly elimated docks. All we fished day 2 was docks. Pro had 1 and I had 0.

I like the schedule for next year though. How you do also depends some on the pro you draw.

What's so bad about ross barnett?

I'm fishing them as a boater.

....as for Table Rock.... drop shoted a limit one day, whopper ploppered a limit on day 3. First day was cranking banks for a limit.

Ross Barnett was a c rig on outside edges of the 100 boats fishing the grass clumps. Haha.

I fished Ross in 13' as a co and 4 days(counting practice) of Zero fish landed and not really any bites either. The Miss F&G sent out a report not long after booking the Elite last year saying that the fishery wasn't good and they needed to add a slot of some kind to increase the fish population. Tried to google it earlier but couldn't find it.

I'll be fishing it as a co for the first time next year ( hopefully), ready to learn something new!

I fish as a boater and won't be back after the schedule change due to not having 5wks vacation, only thing holding me back for next year.

I've heard that from several that were fishing them. Are you going to fish the Costas?
I had considered fishing the Opens but not I'm not sure that I want to take off that much.
I'll probably just fish FLW Cowboy or Okie division and the southwestern Costas.
The way it looks FLW may be gaining quite a few anglers this next season.

It will be interesting to see how the change affects BASS.

Same for me. I'm not a fan of the schedule change. Guess I need to be out there with some of that mommy/daddy money to be able to do that this year.
