That would be a direct violation not a "bend".

Personallly I would like to see them allowed to get all the info they can get off the lake. They wouldn't be allowed on the lake with anyone not even another competitor inside the off limits. It's the infomation age. Get all you want. There is such thing as bad information. It would be much easier to enforce.

What are they going to use to enforce it now? A polygraph? That's a joke.

This is exactly how it goes down. I too know of a guy who went to Rayburn before the cutoff on Toledo and they talked about how "similar" the lakes are fishing at this moment.

Back when the PAA was on Ray Hubbard I had a guy contact me before the cut off, we talked in detail and I even met up with him when he came through town. We took his boat out and I showed him some decent stuff. He zeroed and guess what, I have never been bothered for any "local info" again laugh laugh laugh

A lot of this controversey and ambiguity could be eliminated if the rules were modified so that no GPS technology was allowed. This discussion is very similar to the discussion about pro golfers, the length of golf courses, and the way golf balls are made. GPS has changed the way we fish because now "spots" are extremely specific locations that we couldn't consistenty locate without this technology. Technology changes sports and they way they are played. Somebody already mentioned that this is the information age; information is readily available and information sharing has helped all of us catch more fish.
