It's simple, there are millions more bass anglers than walleye anglers. Numbers and economics in the bass world support the sponsorships, tournaments and TV coverage.

We just need to get over the fact that walleye tournament angling is an activity for a much smaller group and given our numbers, the economics just doesn't pan out.

Default Well Said!!!

Several efforts to connect to the consumer fan base has not worked.....reason being the fan base is very small. It is all about the numbers
