|I Walleye||Whatever tournament it is, AIM, NTC, MWC or NWT, it's always going to be on somebodys home water. Not a legitimate complaint if that was the complint.|

Funny thing about a bad economy............it makes everyone re-access their priorities. We all like to buy choice cut steaks when we are flush with cash. But when times get tougher we will settle for hamburger.
Same applies to fishing. Fisherman and sponsors both go where they get the best bang for the buck while still being with-in sensible budgets.

To get this back onto AIM, I truly wish them the best in this bad economy. I hope my doom and gloom is wrong and I sure respect those that are putting in their time and money to try to make it successful.

What Juls said.......what does it have to do with AIM?
BTW.....anyone who qualifies for the NTC fishes it. You qualify, you go to the tourney, you compete on an even playing field whether it's your home water or someone else home water, and no matter what size your boat is you do the best you can based on the fish you find in practice. How does that differ from any other tournament?

I read it and didn't see anything constructive about it.
By the way, Cabelas sponsors the NTC and NWT. They are the title sponsor, so their name gets to be on the "title". Cabelas does not pick sites or anything else.
And, what any of that has to do with AIM is still confusing to me.

Here's the take/thoughts from a fellow I-Guy that I will share (email)...

As a Fan either I like it or I don't
Its not my job to phone them and tell them how to improve
I don't like golf so i don't watch but thousands do , so they must be doing something right or they
would disappear just like so many walleye trails.
IMO I think fishing out priced it'self
Fishing a unique sport unlike most others i actually don't
need a lot of talent in order to compete but i do know i do need a lot of money
But no matter how much money i have i can't play in the NFL or the NHL I'm just not that talented
And i think that's where you lose your allure there's a lot of self proclaimed pro's out there
That are pretty mediocre fisherman with a big wallet.
Whats the answer I don't know but i do know it has to do with demographics and population
Lets face it some of the best walleye spots are not exactly located in populous areas making it hard to create a crowd atmosphere creating excitement.
I did like the format of making the cut
Maybe just apply it to a 2 day format you gotta perform day 1 to play on day 2
And Most Important
Lower the entry fees will draw more entrants maybe get back on the track of fishing for the trophy other than the money.

Obviously this is the reason none of the top pros are found on public forums, im sure they all read them though
