BASS Announced the 2009 & 2010 Elite Series Schedule today, No they are not coming to Minnesota but they will be coming to Iowa next's year. They were suppose to come to Iowa a few weeks ago but due to the rain and high water level they moved the tournament.

Also they Announced that there will be NO MORE Co-Anglers in the Elite Series. There will still be co-anglers in the opens and other bassmaster events. I'm not sure what to think of that. As a tournament angler and weekend fisherman i can see both sides to this. The biggest problem with this is cheating, thats why the co-angler were there in a since. BASS did say that they are going to have a ride along program for fans. So will see how that go!!!

BASS also Announced that there will be a NEW BASS Northern Open Series. This is great for our state (hoping it includes it) and will help anglers in the north country chase there dream of fishing at the top level.

Having an observer should eliminate the chance that cheating will occur.. Also, I would love to ride around as an observer with an elite pro. I may even prefer it over fishing as a co-angler. I think I would learn more by constantly being able to watch the pro fish every cast and really concentrate on how they approach things on the water different than the average angler.

It would be cool to go around and watch what they do and where they go to get the monsters they do. I would be a grat time on the water.

At first I was disappointed in the announcement that there would be no more co-anglers, I was thinking about trying to get into one close to home here. But like Bob said, I think I would almost rather be an observer so I could focus on learning how the pros think and fish, rather than competing myself and mostly focusing on how I was fishing. I guess the pros are pumped to be fishing alone, and I can definitely see that as I'm sure that some get frustrated at times when a co-angler catches a monster from one of their spots they had prefished earlier.

i agree it would be fun to ride around with a pro for a day. I just wonder what the cost is going to be.

it used to be $300 to be an observer in the Elite 50's and that would be a couple days

    • What are your guys favorite chatterbaits and conditions to throw these in? Any favorite trailers to use? What type of setup/line do you like to use with them?  Thanks.
    • We had a period in August where the wind wasn't too bad but since sturgeon opened there's been a weekly pattern of fronts coming through on Thursday/Friday and Saturday is WINDY then on Sunday when you're going home it's beautiful. Today and yesterday are no exception either. Although the forecast for this weekend seems to be nice.    With sturgeon coming to an end on Friday I'll probably be fishing muskies. Darn!  
    • Ya I am really in a box on this one, whatever will I do when there are never any good mainstream candidates to vote for?  I'm not sure we could have two worse options than the trash on stage last night. We all deserve better.
    • So who won, crazy Donald or big money republicanish Clinton?
    • So I gather by your lack of gloating that lije the rest of the country you think he lost the debate?  I wasn't interested enough to watch it from gavel to gavel but from what I saw he just got his butt handed to him by the mist vulnerable Democratic candidate in many decades. 
    • Great start for the team.  With a healthy Teddy, AP, and O-line we would have been really excited to be 3-0 having played Green Bay and Carolina.  Being 3-0 without Teddy, AP, and with a patchwork O line is almost unbelievable.   I do still have concerns about the offense.  They D can't win every game for them so the O will need to figure it out sooner or later.  If they can be even an average offense then I like our chances but right now they are far from even being average.
    • Well... The beast didn't suffer lazy eye, no coughing jag, no seizure, no chicken wobble. I guess that constitutes a win for the libs ?? Hahahaha.. Although, I think the beast used all her ammunition. Whereas, with two debates to go, the donald still has a lot of ammo.... Including a few grenades....
    • Trump may want to ask Johnson to be included in the upcoming debates because standing there and having Hillary hand him his butt all night isn't doing him any good.
