I'm surprised they called it with what I'm seeing on wind alert.

Im a little confused. Im a HUGE proponent of angler safety. But since when did we start cancelling tournaments because of 20 mph wind gusts? Am I missing something?

Only 130 pros/cos? Seems like a low turnout.

A 20 mph nnw wind on Amistad will eat your lunch, then add gusts to 30mph, probably a good call

I remember back in 07 or 08 they cancelled the elites down there one day and it turned out to be a beautiful day, all they have to rely on to make a call is the forecast.
I have talked to 2 guys that are fishing, and they both said they made the right call.

So it's a two day tournament now, understand why some are upset. Should have allowed them to trailer. fish

I guess that is a tough call for FLW based on what happened last year. I don't agree, but i'm not a TD either.

I can appreciate the call. I have a son fishing it. He has been out there in the wind. He told me it was as much about wind direction as wind speed.

i don't have a dog in this hunt. But I know a guy fishing that thought it was a horrible call. I know how fast that lake can get mean. But at this lake level, and that forecast, most trails would have went. Or that's what I believe. I think they are erring on the side of caution after last year. BUT, if you are going to call a whole day off for that forecast, schedule away from Amistad. Because it's rare this time of year through May to have 3 days in a row with perfect conditions.
