I’d love to hear the details on how this came to light…. It’s been 5+ months so I’m guessing it wasn’t a case of the angler coming forward and admitting the violation.

There is a thread on another forum with screenshots of text where he was soliciting the info.

I will say this, I am pretty good buddies with one of the MLF guys and was on a hunt last year with him and a tacklewarehouse pro circuit guy on the same hunt. They take this rule pretty serious. Sure they sit around and talk fishing and maybe some technique but even then they're pretty tight lipped on that too. The tacklewarehouse guy asked about one lake he had coming up this year and before anyone could even take a breath, he instantly just said "don't say anything, sorry I even asked" realizing his mistake. Silence for a minute and it was left at that. This no info rule is no joke among these guys, but I guess if it was my livelihood, I would probably take it pretty serious too.

On a side note, a few years ago, I kind of remember in one of jacob wheelers youtube videos he showed on camera him picking up a lake card from someone else. It was a CMAP card and he talked about how good CMAP was but just seemed odd he was getting it from someone of random and not ordering a fresh card. I always wondered about this when I watched that video. I aint about to go and try and dig it up with all the videos hes posted since then.

They relaxed that rule this year during the event but there for sure is a no info period before the event still.

what do you mean relaxed the rule? So is there a certain time sharing info is ok? Like months before the event? It was awkward when it happened last year on the hunt and in some ways kinda ticked me off, i wanted to know where the honey holes or the points were on the lake too. I am just a fun fisherman and any info I can get from dudes, who are far better than me, is always a plus in my book. Obviously I didn't press the matter any because I would never jeopardize anyone's livelihood.

Anglers used to could not talk about what they were doing to each other during and event, considering almost all of them room together that made it very difficult. They can now talk fishing as long as it is generalized I believe, no specific locations.

Anyone know if the Randy Flowers screenshots of Spragues text messages on obtaining info are legit?

Sprague has a side job and works for a guy from my area who is also a long time tour pro currently on the Pro Circuit. We have a mutual friends who swear he isn’t a bad guy but man he gets himself into some predicaments.

Wasn’t he the one who allegedly snagged a bed fish at fork and hid it from the camera so they couldn’t see the hook outside the mouth? If so, this added with that isn’t a good look for any pro angler.
