  1. Tournament’s okay for once a year…for them……hey..I’ll share…seems they are not friendly .. even to each other!.Because of MONEY..they just don’t have to tournament every other week… gettin out of hand.. it’s a sport not a job …only a few good guys making it bad for themselves on the long run.
  2. From a local ?.. It’s easy..just obey the rules of the road,..be courteous and friendly .. act like a local you’ll be rewarded,..It’s a wonderful place..personally there’s been to way many tournaments for my taste…. I wish fishing could remain a sport and not a money contest …
