Surprised there has not been more of these this year with the economy right now, I know Timmy Horton announced few months back also...

Going to get worse before it gets better.
Many of us local anglers are already trying to save money any way we can.
Be interesting to see how badly it effects tournament participation on a local level... Considering how far some of us have to travel.

It has effected us out here pretty bad. Last year we average 40 teams in Media now about 25 to 30.

He left a career to start this one and now he's leaving BASS to start another career. I do not think anything made him quit.

roflmao well he’s way way way better than me, but clearly wasn’t on an elite level. I hope his new venture goes very well.

What other sport requires their "pros" to shell out upwards of $100,000 to compete? I'm talking about the tackle, truck, boat, maintenance, travel, etc etc. It's insane to me that this sport also REQUIRES people to pay entry fees for tournaments.

Sure, there's some guys in the top 1% who get free boats, etc. but the vast majority of people lose their [censored] on this. It's incredible.

Imagine if Lebron James had to pay $1500 every game just to compete.

He knew what a Carolina rig was.

Just wait until you see next years participation from bass clubs all the way up to the elites.

But people pay to watch Lebron, nobody pays to watch fishing.
