I heard he talked about it on his FB page. Riverrat im curious what makes you think that of him. The guy had one of the all time best weeks of big bass fishing. He gets $1,000 a day as a guide. One of the TFF members interviewed him and he seemed pretty humble.

He said something along the lines of "Remember Crappie Masters, if you cant beat em ban em"

so to me sounds like he was winning and the people on the trail probably werent happy with his domination and that made its way up to the tourney organizers and they banned him. I have no insight on it, and havent heard anything definitive either way....but would figure he'd have been outed by someone by now if he was actually cheating to get the ban. So im kinda thinking he got the boot for collecting lots of money via that tourney circuit just looking at things from the outside

As long as he is fishing by the rules and winning the tournaments legally, he should be able to voice his opinions. Would find it hard to ban someone for just speaking his mind. If he dominated the tournaments is because he is a very good angler. The other anglers should simply try harder to win. Just my two cents. 2cents

The ban had nothing to do with cheating or winning. Bad mouthing sponsors and getting in an argument with a competitor/sponsor while in a weigh in line can be detrimental to your career. People running these tournament trails work very hard to get sponsors on board with money. Sometimes speaking your mind too loud can be a problem. We're all free to speak but tournament directors are also free to ask us not to come back.

That actually does make perfect sense....and would make more sense than the too much winning idea I had in my head. I could 100% see it happening, and remembering his post specifically mentioning Mr. Crappie. Guess his beef is with Mr. Crappie and it got him in trouble....100% on him if thats the case....time and place for everything, and sounds like he was doing things at the wrong time and place

Josh is humble? roflmao Guy is definitely not that. That's where my dislike of the guy comes from. Confidence is one thing but being a you know what is another thing. Give most guys the resources and time he has and it is not hard to duplicate his success. I can guarantee that his ban has nothing to do with his dominance.

Isnt that what happened in the crappie tourney he just won? Ive heard the second place dudes an absolute hammer and overall outdoor hammer...but Josh won.

Him dominating made more sense to me then him cheating...but the sponsor mudslinging makes more sense to me than him dominating. i dont have any insights at all and just try and view things objectively...and the sponsor thing makes the most sense to me. The dominance thing made sense to me because I heard Mike Long was banned due to rumors (which ended up being true of course) when he was dominating the tourney trail. The cheating thing didnt make sense to me because we all know how social media is, and I feel he wouldve been outted by now by someone fully exposing him...especially with his recent success. For whatever reason nowadays, the worst in peoples past tends to come out when they are doing there best...so that Ivie run he made wouldve been prime time for outting him...and it never happened.

He should just come out and say it...but i guess hes going by the "if you dont got nothing nice to say, dont say anything at all" mantra
