I would like to see the MLF Championship Round make the guys use mapping only. No other electronics allowed. This would be fun to watch.

I would get a color coded line with a 2 ounce weight to be my depth finder like I did in the 60's. No batteries required.

Never happen. The electronics companies are some of the biggest sponsors out there. Bass fishing needs more diversity of techniques and angler fishing styles. Not less. I say let them have whatever graphs they want, and let them fish out of whatever boats they want. Just make them stick with the same equipment all year. Don't see why it needs to be more complicated than that.

I don’t see why they should stick to the same equipment all year, they need to be able to adjust their equipment for every tournament. Right tool for the right circumstance, it’s not like they all don’t have access to different boats anyways. If they all want to be river rats, let them fight up in those tight spots with each other.

Right!

Electronics ain’t ever going away….and the prices ain’t ever coming down. Time for the cheap [censored] to find another hobby besides competitive fishing.

Maybe the organizers should issue the equipment to them at take off. Let the spectators decide what gear they get. Haha.

“Man! I got the catfish pole last time! It ain’t fair!” I could hear it now.

Fine by me and I agree. Thing is they already regulate the boats. I guess my point is the electronics debate is really no different than the boat debate. People throw out "Safety" as the reason to restrict boats, but we all know that's BS. We are talking about a perceived advantage in either case. So either regulate both or neither. Personally I think you should be able to have whatever electronics you want and fish out of whatever boat you want. A good tournament should have variety. Personally, I'm fine with someone fishing out of a tunnel hull skiff with a jet motor. I'm also fine with someone having 4 million dollars worth of graphs on their boat if they want. I couldn't care less. My personal opinion is don't regulate either. With that said we all know more restrictions on boats are coming. Especially from BASS. It's the height of hypocrisy. Seems to me using the same boat and electronics models all yr could be a compromise, but you always have the idiots like Steeze that take it to a place it was never meant to go.

I am not a big fan of "leveling" the playing field. I don't like to see baits, equipment or certain boats not being allowed.

I feel like the same guys that were winning without FFS etc are the same guys winning with it. There are guys out there that prove even on the pro level that you can excel by doing your own thing.

Embrace technology and put the cane poles down.

one of the reasons that really good fishermen don't stay in bass clubs long is that too many people think that innovative/creative people are somehow cheating or playing unfair......
