It would be great if we go back to Memphis, to at least let us go after the Captains meeting. Most of our time was spent driving to and from our fishing spot. I have tried to get some info from Mike Webb, but I think they have a whole lot more Tournaments than us. We placed 10th, and 1 fish that we lost would have put us in 4th, having said all that , we would rather go back to the format in Springfield, knowing what we know now, and which lake we would spend all our time scouting. Anyway it goes, we'll be back.

I think they need to rotate the tourney around the country. Hold it at various Bass Pro locations if you must, but just pick a different one each year, and keep it trailering anywhere.

BTW I'm not a huge fan of holding it at the actual store location. It SUCKED in Springfield, and it SUPREMELY SUCKED in Memphis. They didn't even have police holding the lights for us. I'd like to see it in a more rural setting.

I noticed for the first year the field wasn't completely full, and I'm guessing that had sumptin to do with it.

dawg, do you mean ? wouldn't mind that, we won the International shoot there in the late 70's, put on by Pearson Archery. I think there was bout 280 teams, but not many fish were shot . If it is mead, they better hope it gets some water in it, nothin but commons there

I couldn't imagine 300 teams of you guys coming to the Manteca california location in my neck of the woods. That would be chaos.

Thats what I thought about all those trucks and boats rolling through down Memphis. I'm just glad the Black Lives Matter protest that blocked the entire I40 bridge that Sunday after the weigh in started after most of y'all were gone.
