I've always been one that gets bored watching the pro trails go to basically the same places each year at basically the same time. I get bored with the pro tournaments chasing the spawn then moving north to end their season in early summer chasing smallmouth. Same thing every year. So personally I like watching these pros fish in tougher conditions of the fall. I think it's a great way to see who the really top end anglers are. Do you guys like watching these fall tournaments? Or is it just not enough action to keep you interested?

The tougher the bite, the more I like watching. I guess I’m weird that way. I like to see them have to find them and make them bite.


Eat. Sleep. Fish.

I always enjoy watching them fish no matter what time of the year it is. woot

I prefer to support guys that you can talk to at the local boat ramp, tackle store, or even crack a Michelob Ultra open and toast great fisheries! cheers

I know a lot of guys are liking it, but it’s not for me. If I want to watch suck, I’ll just watch myself at the lake. I haven’t watched much of the last few BASS tournaments.

I don't watch a ton of fishing on TV so when I do, I want to see them hammering them vs struggling. I have no asperations of becoming a pro fisherman so don't really care about how they go and tackle tough conditions on a lake for a week because it won't ever apply to me.

I haven’t been able to watch much of the last few events. I did get to watch the last two hours of the frog fest at chick. Very exciting ending if you ask me.



I hate photobucket.

I like the leveled playing field of fall fishing. Some of these guys have fished these same lakes, at the same time, for years and years. Now you’re seeing other guys show out.

I also enjoy seeing how the Pro’s fish and make adjustments when it’s not going well. I learn more than watching the tournaments where all we see is hook sets.

I don’t watch tournaments. I like fishing. Not watching other guys fish.

I enjoy watching the weigh-ins and reading about how they formulated their patterns and then made changes as the tournament progressed... Dan

I like it purely because you get to see guys throughout the field doing different things. Burning gas junk fishing, skipping docks, punching grass, floating marinas, bluff walls, topwater, off shore, etc. The whole spectrum is covered. On the contrary, in a spring tournament, 90% of the field is doing the same thing. It is more who can find the right area with the right size. Fall tournaments these guys are doing what ever they possibly can just to get bit.

I like it. Granted it's not as cool as the slugs fest but I like seeing them struggle and the few figure something out or just grind it out. Watching the last hour of live on chick was awesome with those last minute curls. It teaches me more than the spring tournaments
