OCC. The trails I fish all pay out 80% And as far as the championship, the rcl sent out letters to people that fished 1 tourney to get a full field and guess what,they also had to pay. The IWT championship is open for anybody that fished a tourney. And we had to pay. Are you saying these trails are also run badly and should be shut down also? And 1 other thing,i`m not afraid to fish the chain and if I remember right,I won the GNWC there last year.
P.S. Why dont you register.

John, I was there. You openly admitted on this board prior to the event that your pre-fishing consisted of following locals who were pre-fishing and bringing along binoculars. OOC called you on it back then. At the weigh-in, you said you didn't catch another walleye all day. GNWC guys did not endear themselves to locals by bringing Illinois River bumper-boat techniques with them. Heaven help the guy who flashes a net. There is little honor left in tournament fishing.
Yes, you won. You brought one fish to the scale on a tough bite. I said congratulations and good job then and I'll say it now. Your win over guys who had been fishing that water for 10-15 or more years proves there is still an element of luck involved in tournament fishing.
