Kinda surprising. Seems like it will only take away numbers from their other divisions.

They are saying guys will get to their fish faster and on an even level but if they still draw boat numbers to launch its the same as with a normal tournament. To me it just looks like people trying to "rules" themselves into a win. Kinda like the no jet boats, no Biosonix junk you hear about.

i fish with a partner out of a 75HP boat....obviously against all sizes or motors...no worries...just cause you get there first doesn't mean you know how to catch the fish there....im down to go against any boat/angler!

They are just reducing the amount of potential entries and thereby limiting their potential for success.

My 18' Cobra has a 150 on it and I have fished Amistad in 35 mph winds. It wasn't fun, but my boat & motor handled it just fine. Some of the guys in 20' boats with 225 HP were worse off than me.....they probably didn't know how to drive.

Now a boat under 16' on the other hand (which I am sure is what your comment was directed at)..........might have some trouble.

Look at the regions they are looking at. In those regions, they dont run the 21+' boats. More like a 19'

The lakes they run are river systems and a larger boat is sometimes a hinderance.
When I was out at Clarks Hill in GA a couple of years ago, that was the first thing I noticed, they all had smaller boats.

I think its more about trying to a broader based angler into tournament fishing. The guys with the 16' boat dont typically enter many tourments when they are already expecting the guy with the 21' to enter.
