When you link, it guarantees both anglers a spot incase its full or if there is an uneven amount of boaters or non-boaters. IF they get too many non-boater, unlinked non-boaters can be bumped from tournament

If too many boaters, non-linked boaters will be paired together in a boater/boater draw

Its a 5 tournament series, June - Sept, Le Homme Dieu, Whitefish, Pokegama, Vermillion & Tonka

I am pretty sure the Tonka tournement is the TOC and you have to "qualify" for it. Not real tough to do as you only need 100 points so all you really need to do is show up for two tournements because you get 50 points for showing up. It is a really fun series and I would reccomend it. Due to circumstances beyond my control I will not be fishing the whole series this year but will try and make 2 so I can fish the tonka event. If you finish well enough you gett a shot at nationals and the winner gets a spot in the Big Show, The Bassmaster Classic.

Also as a freindly reminder to any non-boaters please remember that it is customary to share expenses for gas and oil with your boater. With oil prices where they are at this is something that should be taken into account. Good Fishing!!

What do you guys think a fair amount is for gas for the boater/pro. $20.00 used to be fair, but with gas approaching $4.00 should it be $40.00, or more? Does it depend on how far you run, or what? I have never fished as a non-boater, don't know if I would expect it from an amatuer partner or not. I am sure it would be nice to help cover expenses for the day. Are you fishing for yourself in these or is it a shared weight? Does the Co get any TM time? I have read a fair amount of posts about this topic on other boards, opinions vary.

In club tournaments, non-boaters often can get TM time, but in BFL's & Weekend Series tourneys, the Co can only run TM in emergency situations

I have fished a few tournaments as a Co-Angler, I have almost always offered some money to my boater except for a few times. The boater needs to be friendly and make the day fun, if they aren't friendly or just rude then I’m not paying them anything, cool That’s just my opinion. If the boater looks out for you and helps you catch fish then make sure you tell him and make sure you pay for any items he gives you.

I have giving a guy $70 dollars before for helping me catch fish. I won the tournament that day and if he didn’t help me I would have never won it. The boater is always going to watch to make sure he catches fish first and that understand able!!! If you run a lot I would give him more then if you didn’t, Just pay something, anything helps!!! grin

Just in our local small club tourneys the Non-boater pays 20.00 to the partner just for puling the rig to wherever we happen to be fishing that day.. We won't ever go over 20.00 becuz of the facts our club is laid back and take a have fun approach to things.. im my opinion though 40.00 isn't asking too much because of just what it costs to pull the rigs nowdays,not even figuring in boating time or expenses on the vehicles

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
