It's solid. Well run. Buy the freedom pass if you can't leave early on Friday's. All my boaters have been pretty cool. No issues with them. I don't see well at ramp in the AM, plus suck with mirrors. I tell my boater to get her close and I fine then. None have had problem with this. Respect their boat/seats and you'll be fine. PM me if you want more info.

You might want to ask "Have you heard of a place called the Spearmint Rhino" Their answer will probably tell you a lot about how any conversation (if any) might go.

I've fished as a Co two of the last three years. It's well run and the payout is decent. Had 98% good experiences with my boaters. Treat their equipment better than if it was yours. Talk to your boater and have a handle on what you will be doing on tournament day and adjust your gear accordingly. Be self sufficient and be ready when they say we're on the move. Chris is a solid TD. Not wild about the realignment of the division this year where Toledo Bend got lumped in with Cedar Creek, Pines and Palestine. That's a bs move and I'd like to hear the reasoning behind it. The Southeast division fishes all four on Rayburn. ??? Leave TB to those guys and give us back Sandlin, Tyler or Chambers

Great tournament!! Respect your boater and you will have a blast. Remember it's a small event not the Bass Master Classic. Focus on having fun and not just winning

I'm with ya Bossbowman!.TB should not be on the schedule in my opinion. I would also like to know the reasoning behind this? So many other quality lakes to choose from that are more in line with the others on the schedule.Not crazy about Texoma as the Championship lake either..But I think I will take the plunge and give it a try this year as a Co-Angler..Maybe next year fish it as a Boater?

I agree with you SoCal Tom.I guess there thinking is they will have a big turn out with a lot of the southeast guys fishing the one on TB.I have not heard of anyone that likes TB being on the schedule.

Conroe got it's own division this year, going to really add to the pressure this lake already gets. I'm with y'all though, T-Bend on y'alls schedule is just silly, there are a lot of really nice lakes closer to y'all up that way!

I've fished TB one time as a co. It's actually easier on us because (in my case) I drew a local that was on some fish and I managed a check. I feel bad for the guys who want to chase AOY on the boater side. They get to go down there with all the local guys waiting for them. It's quite a bit more money in travel expenses plus entry. Bitter pill to swallow. I know, I know, suck it up, but we all know that the TB/Big Sam crowd is tough on visiting teams...

Forgive my ignorance fellas, I'm thinking about fishing as a co-angler this year as well..

Can y'all provide with me the ins and outs? I have no idea what a co-angler link is, when/how are boaters and co's paired?

Just some general info would be helpful.. It sounds fun..
