I get what you are saying on this whole matter. For me, my options are limited and I'm playing with what I have. The options I have and am limited to. If I had a good enough paying job I'd have my own boat and could fish the other orgs. Reality is, I don't. I get this one lake and one Org to fish.
I wanted to argue with things and piss and moan...but my only other option is NO competitive fishing. And that for me isn't an option. I can't find a partner for the other lakes as they all fish with their partners of years. When I offer people to fish with them, I get nada! So I'm done trying.
My dad and I aren't trying to make a career on derby fishing...this is a FUN competitive thing I get to do and I enjoy it. Do i wish i could fish the other lakes, YES, but when this is the hand that's dealt why am I going to piss and moan and whine over some things.
Shoot...you've seen a DRASTIC change in payouts and I'm stoked to see it. Full disclosure is great! I know where I'm fishing the TOC and what the AOY prizes are, its been stated from above.
I'm done with worrying about these types of things...i for one feel its a HUGE part why I've struggled on my home waters the last few years.
I'm just enjoying myself and time on the water with my old man.
To each there own...you decisions are yours! But i've got tournaments to fish and fish to catch regardless of the orgs! And I feel Wonbass is a fine organization and i've always supported them.
