The rules for the bassmaster opens have been changed starting in 2018. Tunnel hull boats will not be allowed for competing or practicing purposes. Also, non penetrating cull clips are the only cull clips allowed.

What do you guys think about the changes?

Not a big deal, will be for the few who can afford to have a tunnel for the shallow river events. The clips are interesting though.

Skyler Hamilton won an event last year using one. I think it's a good idea to axe them, because nobody uses them in the elites. So let's say someone fishes out of one to get the advantage in the opens and qualifies for the elites. The elites allow one boat the whole year, and a tunnel hull won't be the one used.

someone in BASS must have stock in the company that makes "non-penetrating cull tags"... can't use a net so boat flip em in and they flop all over the carpet but lets not poke a hole in the mouth where we just had 1-6 hooks stuck in... done properly the cull balls work extremely well and do almost zero damage...

Unfortunately though Rudy, most people get in a hurry and don't do it right. Seen way too many damaged mouths. I think it's a good change.

Next thing you know everyone will have to have the same boat and motor and will be weighed in and out.

Participation trophies are what the crybabies want. If the boat made the angler I wouldn't think Defoe would be doing to hot in the elites. Got to play to the daddy's boys I guess.

I agree. A lot more complicated for a west coast angler to have to drive his fiberglass boat home and change it out with a tin boat. Then have to make the drive across country to switch them again. Pretty convenient when its in your back yard though.



I hate photobucket.

Aluminum yes, but not a super custom tunnel hull.

Correct. Big difference between a tunnel hull boat and a Crestliner or xpress such as the one John Cox and skylar Hamilton use.
