I'm not one to complain publicly but I'm not impressed at all with the new tournament director for Media bass series on Fork. Yes I know he owes Media bass and he is a really nice guy but dang he was unorganized today and manny people were upset. I prepay for the entire year so I can get a early launch time in order to take advantage of the morning bite and shad spawn, which generally last 30 to 45 minutes if you're lucky. This morning we didn't start to launch until after 35-40 minutes after safe light! needless to say the shad spawn was gone by the time we started and 2 of the spots we wanted to start at had boats on them. Why the delay? Well for starters he hadn't even set up his speaker and he and another guy debated where they were going to set it up and where to have the boat check at. They picked the short dock that was full of boats instead of the long dock for some reason. The long dock had people on it all day and was safe but he didn't use it. Why not have the boat check beforehand then do a numbered launch? We had a low number but yet had boats in the 70's right by the boat check area. It's a cluisterf$*k. If you continue to do it this way how about some instructions for the people to stay far away until their boat number gets closer, but please don't be longwinded! I've fished Media for over 10 years and I have never been so aggravated by the way a tournament is ran. Even the weigh in took forever because he has to talk talk and talk some more. Bass champs has over 300 boats and gets done with weigh inn faster then this. I will have to reconsider fishing this series next year. Bring back David Haas! We still got a decent check so I'm not scorned just irritated beyond belief. When you pre-fish all week to find a great morning shad spawn bite just to have this happen it's annoying as hell!

Rant over, sorry! Now I'm ready for the backlash from y'all. lol

I agree with most of what you said about today’s event. Things were very unorganized compared to his first two Fork events. I was also hoping to catch fish with the shad spawn and arrived 20 minutes too late. Hopefully he gets better and things get consistent as he gets use to Fork events.

As far as fishing it was a tough day but we had one lucky bite that got us 2nd place and big bass. It weighed 9.23 on the tournament scale.

Was it Gordon running it? He does the central and you can forgot about the early bite on a shad spawn. He is notorious for dragging his feet and launching late.


Wishin I was Fishin!!!

Thank you sir. We have quite the hole to dig out of for any shot this year.

Yes it is him and that's very unfortunate.

Might as well get used to it. Been fishing with Gordon since he started media, it's always been this way with him.

Very slow start yesterday and the weigh in is painfully slow.

Also...they need to measure more of these fish. I think I saw him measure one over yesterday, no unders. That approach will get taken advantage of. Some really nice 16” fish in that holding tank yesterday!

I fished one Media on Fork about 15 years ago, I waited over one hour to see who won the T after everyone had weighed in.

I was done with Media after that

I agree also. I fished cedar creek central this year and everything is slow!
