I know that "Trout Tournament" was a typographical error
I know you didn't mean it. I fished B.A.S.S for years, and
I watched tournament fever destroy fisheries, friendships
and families. If you want to destroy trout fishing on the
Hooch or any other fragile trout stream, and create an obnoxious, self-indulgent group
of anglers that care only about winning a piece of wood and
plastic or a few dollars than by all means let's start
having Saturday Pot Tournaments on every ramp on the Hooch
that can accomodate it. First, there will be no room for
waders and tubes because it will be too dangerous with all
the 150 HP Jet boats racing up and down the river. Secondly,
A trout is not a bass when it comes to handling or surviving
several hours in a livewell. They just won't make it.
FORGET ABOUT TOURNAMENTS !!! DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT TOURNAMENTS!!!
SAVE THE HOOCH!!! DOWN WITH TOURNAMENTS !!!
