Ha, Ha, you don't have a clue about folks in this area! They would pay to be there without hesitation. But it is nice to have a beautiful weekend with good food and carnival rides for the kids!

It extends past the folks at the weigh in. It highlights the area and fishery. While watching I was googling info on the area and looking at google maps. Would have never thought about fishing some areas they did on TV. BASS, FLW, MLF. Its interesting to guys like us. I prefer BASS but im old school.

These posts are just goofy and don't really make anyone look good.

Some people seem to think we have to choose 1 tour. Hell I just renewed my Bassmaster membership today but didn’t watch any of the Elites today. I love that the fact that they came to Texas but made the choice to watch the other guys.

Yes they are. Fact is BASS puts on a great show. MLF puts on a great show. I for one am glad they both exist.

If anything the exposure from Tv sent all of the US to lil Del Rio Texas which pumped millions into the economy there. We dont see people flocking to Orange to catch a bass so it might be time to find another topic to try a push. fish


Beaumont Orange area has 250,000 population. Another 100,000 just over the border in La. Slightly more than Del Rio.

I thought about driving down as it's a bit more than an hour but just not a good enough draw for me. Great weather here today though.

The river fishing is pretty tough so definitely not a fresh water fishing destination for out-of-towners but is utilized fairly substantially by the locals. And its minutes to an hour to outstanding salt water fishing which does attract tourist fishers.


Advice? Wise men don't need it. Fools won't heed it.

There is a distinct difference here, and whether or not you like either side, one is a lot more honest, forthright and open than the other. I’m not choosing sides, but I at least like that one lets me know his bias, affiliation and is publicly posting facts that someone else could possibly refute if he’s lying, so I can at least try to make an informed decision. The other either obviously is plugged in personally somehow or is full of it, and we don’t know which it is, so that’s a problem, in my opinion.

I respect the side that discloses their allegiance/employer/whatever because at least I know where they’re coming from and can accept they know what they’re talking about, even if it’s BS. The anonymous nature of the other side, which is constantly negative and aggressive towards MLF is hard to take. If he wasn’t anonymous or was suddenly forthright with his affiliation, it would be much different. All the cards would be on the table at that point.

Until then, it’s pretty hard to say Mark is CNN.


You nailed it. End of discussion until BO mans up or girls up, whatever he/she is.

When I read this I took it that Mark is Fox News since he is the only one that has posted any proof. thumb

The other news agency just goes off feelings. popcorn2
