Some great Southeast lakes on the schedule for sure. However, it's amazing to me that with as many Texas anglers as they have on tour, they can't manage to put one single stop in Texas. It's certainly no great mystery why most pro anglers end up living in either Alabama or Tennessee. Also a bit puzzling to me is that all of the professional tours keep scheduling events in New York. I know we all hope that this Covid insanity is gone long before then, but that is no guarantee. Still a fairly decent chance that any event scheduled there could be delayed or even worse the Anglers have to go through ridiculous quarantine restrictions. What are your thoughts?

Ok, so riddle me this, two states sold more than 2,000,000 resident fishing licenses, Texas and California, at 2,117,000 and 2,340,000 each. No tournament in either. Alabama (498k), South Carolina (511k) and Maryland (340k) combined sold less than either of those states, but each got an event? I get it, it's about what town/area will pony up most money to get them there, but dang seems you'd want to go where most interest in freshwater fishing.

This is 100% related to host fee revenue. All tournament leagues require it. Texas is notorious for low or no fees. Itโ€™s simply more profitable to visit the states that appreciate the tournament organizations/anglers and the economic impact they bring to a fishery.

Everyone has always know that tournament host fees are the #1 consideration for these tournament trails. It's rare to hear someone in the industry actually admit it. It's not just FLW either. It's all of them. Must be big money to trump every other consideration.

Maybe I'm dense, but what do you mean by "tournament host fees" and "appreciation" of the tournament? All tournament host areas reap an economic windfall from large amateur and pro tournaments, motels, restaurants, gas stations, tackle, grocery stores, rental homes, etc. Seems the impact is generally similar no matter where the tournament is held. So, does the economic development department or chamber of commerce pay BASS or FLW a large lump sum to host a tournament?

Yes and they pay big!

When you stay at a hotel etc. you pay a tax that in some cases goes into the "kitty" to pay such fees. popcorn2

Sucks for a lot of the guys, lots of travel back & forth. Might knock the number of entries down.
