Just wondering, otherwise it looks like a good format.

I believe its detrimental to the series. I watch MLF and there is nothing like watching KVD be behind by 20lbs and the next thing you know he's found an offshore hump loaded with fish and watching him mount a comeback.

I think they made it 2lbs because the scales they initially used were straight garbage. I think MLF uses 1lb as its guideline and its fine with the scales they use.



I get we like to see big fish be caught. But quite frankly having now watched 2 seasons and hours of H2H, i'd prefer to just see fish get caught period. There are so many hours of nothing going on where you just have to listen to these guys tell stories over and over again, its unbelievable.

I also think it complicates the rules unnecessarily. And I'll be honest, if you want to be taken seriously, its kind of tough with "dinkfest" being in the official rules. if you look at their regional rules, they just do 15" minimum and AIM type measuring rules due to i assume the expected large field of participants (oops). I like the weigh format but if its good enough for local amateurs , its good enough for the pros IMO.

I enjoy watching tournament fishing. I don't care what it is and will likely continue to watch. but they also seem to make an emphasis on their gold member stuff and if they don't continue to polish, they'll lose those. I think they will and I enjoy the coverage for the most part.

After so long of no scorable fish they activate dink fest and everything counts as well.

It was inferred that it had to do with the accuracy of the scales. A one ounce difference is a smaller % on a 2 lb fish than the same difference on a one lb fish.

Honestly I think that it is more interesting to watch these guys trying to catch larger fish than someone weighing in 5 or 6 fish that are 12-14" long. Just my opinion and preference.

I enjoy the format a lot. Fun to watch, hope it continues and is successful

ColoGregS Juls thanks for confirming what I had heard. I couldn't believe that was the issue, but it must have been that.

Anything can be determined to be offensive if the wrong person hears it. That is the PC world that we all live in.

If I remember right at first they were allowing snagged fish to be weighed last year. Then Max caught like a 6 pounder but it was snagged and he refused to weigh it cause it wasn't right to him and kind of struck a chord with the fanbase and like the next day or so they changed the rule to no snagged fished can be weighed.

I'm sure that's the cliff notes version and I may of missed something but that was what I remember.

The problem is they were like "he was disqualified, we have nothing else to say" causing a true crapstorm.


I enjoy the format in truth but with all the snagfest issues last year, and this issue, man it stumbles a bit.

It also doesn't help that often you are literally seeing 5 fish caught all day long.

I helped out as a marshal Mon and Tues as well. I was kind of surprised when most of the field was slabbing in community holes also. When Randall Gaines lit up the leader board on the second day with a great open water bite I kinda thought he may have it in the bag, and he hung in till the end. The shallow spinner bait troller's did well later in the tourney also. The slabbing was sporatic at best and 5 hour's for one or two bites' is definately a grind for me. I see Blosser boated 4 today so he must have had a good flurry with the slab. It was my first look at Active target and it is really cool, was watching bait with walleye's slashing through frequently, pretty wild. One pro had 5 HDS 12 live's and the other had 4 in his boat. I got to see a couple over 9's boated nearby but neither of the fisherman I drew boated a walleye.

Great experience and have to give a shout out to Joe Okada and Randy Gaines for taking there precious time to answer a few question's about the Yar-craft 219 and just chat fishing, both are class act's and just super nice people.

If H2H is in your area, take the time to help out.
