It will be extended to May 15th. Then May 30th. You guys have fun with your defiance. I get not letting anyone tell you what to do. Now is not the time for self-righteousness.


I doubt seriously is goes to may 30th

It won’t, that’s some more of him thinking he knows everything like usual.

If Media can follow the CDC guidelines then what’s the difference between that and heading to Walmart? Just because 30, 40, 50, etc, numbers of teams, the management of those numbers isn’t hard to do. Still less than the number of people going into ANY grocery store, convenience store, Tractor Supply, Home Depot, Calloways, etc. Keep 6’ spacing at weigh-in. Conduct the weigh-in with flights of 10 boats and it’s easy to manage. Life isn’t hard folks.

I know Media is losing money right now, as is a bunch of people. But it’s just not smart at this time.
Plus most counties he’s doing them are in stay at home. And it’s not an essential business.



Sir please don’t bring common sense and real fact into the thread, it will be deflected by tin foil hats. We are all having our rights stripped and now living in Nazi Germany over this completely fake pandemic. No reason we shouldn’t just open everything back up on Monday and everything will be normal. bang

I am for us all being responsible and keeping a low profile and would prefer to see Gordon re think it mostly for the political side of this as it concerns tournaments in general.


But WAWI is spot on, and I’ve said it multiple times. Home Depot, Lowe’s , bass Pro , academy ......all doing zero to avoid nut to butt lines and people elbow to elbow.


If the “authorities” are more focused on churches than the above mentioned bulsh than they can eat a bag o d!cks

We will all be over 6 feet apart from each other in the boat and in the weigh in line. The problem I think we’re doing this while we are still under quarantine orders is it’s making 40, 50, or 60 teams have to go out and interact in the world. I think that may be where Gordon is missing the picture. It’s not the tournament or his event that poses a risk. It’s stopping to get gas on the way there, get ice, maybe somebody hasn’t finished in the last month and a half and needs to go get some fishing line and a couple packages of flukes, Stops to gas up and get breakfast at the little gas station at log cabin and runs into somebody that sick, who knows. Then if they do catch something they won’t know from that day that they have it and then they can bring it back home to their families and so on and so forth. So I don’t know what to think. And yes I agree the obvious answer is if you don’t want to do it stay at home, but how many people are going to do that?? Seems like that’s the problem now and why they keep extending the stay in place.

What’s the difference in all that stuff you wrote and a regular trip to the grocery store after work? Or trip to grab a 12pack at the 7-11?

That's what i was trying to figure out. Everything he wrote. I do everyday

Still reading. Again being on the fence at first one post that stuck out was the one talking about believing the governments numbers starting at 2 million and then going to 200,000 and then dropping and dropping and so forth. Well didn’t all those numbers drop because of the measures that they put in place and everybody staying at home?????? Hmmm 🤔 you’re right it doesn’t seem like rock in science here. Seems more like you’re trying to just use the Numbers to feel like someone is trying to strip your liberties instead of keep A bad situation from getting worse. It does suck. And I guess anything can be justified. The email I got from media said this weekend by the way, April 18.

AMEN BROTHER!


How’s all that fighting against the State of Texas working for ya? I don’t mind following the rules, especially if that’s what it takes to protect my family and friends. Im not as selfish as you guys.

I believe the science, I believe the head of cardiology at Baylor, I believe the best damn vascular surgeon in Texas... both of which I have spoken to in length multiple times since this has started. You guys believe what you want, my information about this comes from front line workers not Fox News and CNN.

You should make a personal choice for yourself, then depending on that choice mind your own business.

Your personal choices right now affect others... that’s what you won’t hear Wawi. Pure selfishness.

I'm pretty aware of the affect as are millions of small businesses people in this country, acutely aware.

The virus doesn't spread itself,people do and until people keep their butts at home unless it is having to work and buy food it will continue.And a damned fishing tournament isn't that important.Fishing by your self I think is another story.
