Bud your out of our fricking mind :dizzy:.Dont listen to this kind of BS folksWhew. I almost went down there yesterday. I'm glad I changed my mind. I hate tournaments. If you are going to keep fish for food, fine, but tourneys encourage people that wouldn't normally keep them to do so, for fame and profit. Some of those guys don't eat them and many probably end up in the trash. That thought burns me.
1st off.Show me proof that others are putting Steel in the trash.Or tourney just kills.I could care less about others fishing this river long as they repect it and others.As far as the Launch goes i would like to see it shut down as alot of others around here.Reason being is fricking trash.The fishermen are fricking pigs.Not all but alot are.This was brought up by Rockwood not me.But im all for it.Bring it on Steelmon.I have nothing to hide.I still say your full of **** about others just trashing Steel.Ask me and your going to get 100% truth.You seem to make stuff up as you go.Hope im not being to nice about it.BTW just cause someone calls you out dont mean they dont like you.I would call out anyone friends family if i think they are full of crap.MichI know you don't like me Mich. and I know why, but don't start throwing slings at me for my opinion. I've seen the aftermath of many tourneys, of all types, with many belly-up fish in the water. Treble said that someone gave him a fish as he was leaving. What would have happened if no one wanted that fish? That statement showed that some guys don't eat them. When you make a deragatory statement about someone's post, offer some evidence to prove them wrong. You can't just say that someone is out of their mind without evidence to back it up. Tell me why I am out of my fricking mind.
Mich doesn't like me anymore guys, because I called him out on his real reasons for not wanting to talk about the Huron. He has a house on the river and really doesn't want you guys boating on the river, no matter how "nice" he acts about it. He tried to get the Rockwood Ramp closed to the public and used by residents only. We were talking one day, because at least we both care about the river itself. He told me he wanted that ramp closed to the public. While he's making nice on the forum, he is working behind the scenes to keep you off of the river.
Ya, I hear yai'm curious myself, wish I would've remembered the tourney, wouldn't have minded fishing it.
Why not allow catch and release for the tourny? The college steelhead tournament held in NW Michigan does and it works out fine. At registration everyone gets a tape measure and a colored card. A fish that is caught and released on tourney day must have a photo of the fish next to the tape measure and the colored card must appear in the photo to assure that the fish was acutally taken on tourney day. of coarse the tourney would need to be a length tourney rather than weight - but it would spare the fish killing that may or may not go on with the tournament..
