I for one think that the top bass guys have got there stuff together. They have very well run tournaments and a very good following. I cant think of a better local tournament trail I would rather fish. They have great sponsors,great consolation prizes, and the two guys that run it are very friendly. they also have very nice trophys. at the end of the season they give away huge prizes. I havent seen the schedule yet for this year but I assume it will look somthing like this...........1)saginaw bay 2) houghton 3) sanford 4)wixom maybe a muskegon lake or two thrown in, another wixom or sanford. burt and mullet who knows but they are usually somthing like that. If you live anywhere near any of these ares please give them a look. You will se how well run even reletivly small tournaments can be. they feel like smaller versions of b.a.s.s. tourneys. I will post a schedule when I get one.
