My curiosity got the best of me, I had to know who egg salad guy was. Till now Id never heard the name. However your story about it was kinda funny, although Im sure you didnt think so at the time.

What would happen if "pros" came on and started telling stories about the co-anglers

There are three sides to every story.

However, 99% of the guys that I have met have been great people. Sometimes people hit it off and other times they dont.

Dude-Did you know that baitcaster is on a spinning rod
Dude-How long has that line been on that reel
Dude-Did you know that hook just went into my seats
Dude-Did you know you just knocked a chuck out of my boat
Dude-Can you not hit my motor everytime you cast
Dude-You just drove my trailer off of the ramp and I have to call a tow truck
Dude-You just spilled smelly jelly all over my carpet
Dude-You just knock off a 10 pounder
Dude-You just crashed my truck into the trailer next to us
Dude-You just left all of your trash in my back compartment
............
Just like the pros, the cos have to start somewhere.....

However, none of this would EVER stop me from fishing tournaments.

The pro wanted him to drag a carolina rig all day. Every time he picked up a different rod it was "Dude... I need you to drag a carolina rig". After a while this guy got tired of dragging the c-rig and not getting bit, so he grabbed his darter head rod and stuck a pretty good fish. The pro looks at him and says "Dude... why didn't you tell me you knew how to fish a darter head".

My buddy is in his mid fifties and this pro was older than he was. I still laugh my a$$ off every time I see him because I start every sentence with "Dude..." since he made the mistake of telling me he was about to throw this pro off the boat every time he called him dude.


This was something like my first experience fishing a tournament... "Just throw the tube, dude"... "Dude.. whack em.. you throwing that tube?" "You still got that tube on?"
Surprised I fished another tournament.... But of course, I was the other end of his entry fee... Not that I was supposed to fish or anything.

Ricky - I think you're missing the point...I'm not talking about the pros, I am talking about TD that cannot control their circuits or themselves. I'm talking about the unethical things (the ones I personally know about - and there were quite a few!) that happened last year. I'm just letting everyone know why I (boobs) will not be fishing next year!

Sker13 - Thank you

Flipit - I love that you figured out the whole egg salad man thing! HAHAHAHA!

It took me a few to figure it out because they didnt post second day weights just total, but it was not too bad. Based on the other happenings of the day Id say he was just a bad apple. I think TD's dont wanna boot anglers because the turn outs have been low, but its no excuse either.

Flipit that is the problem. Their greed and willingness to do anything to keep their numbers up. Last year was a race to the bottom.

Your right, it is one of the problems. Perhaps whent eh economy was so good it was to easy for them. Now its a tougher sell, and we the anglers also want better. Sometimes it means they need to lose some anglers along the way, so as to improve the over all package for everybody.
