Anyone else hear this? I just saw that after the final 3 events the PWT that started in 1989 will no longer be...what a sad day

They've been talking about that for a couple of years but there could be something new. (so I've heard)

wHY IS THAT. WHAT HAPPENED.

Loss of Lund/Mercury, slow economy, shrinking fishing market, etc.

I believe the AIM tourney trail starts next year, along with the FLW.

I thought it might hold on for another year or two, but I guess not.

Everything has it's cycle. Looks like PWT is following it's parent organization, my favorite InFisherman, which has been getting skinnier and skinnier each year....

If you google Walleyefan (HSOforum), you can look through stories about AIM-the new tour for next year.

No idea. He's heading the PWT for the remainder of the year I guess. He did ice TV this year, maybe he'll take a larger TV role - or maybe not . . .

IMO, Chip should go back to Fishing the Wildside. He showed me around his facilities in Walker right before he left. Well run with good input and personnel from what I saw. He had a good thing going with the online magazine and fishing shows. Just needed to find a way to market it better and turn a buck on it. Everyone else is cashing in on ice fishing and he should too...he's plenty good at it....but I suppose, when InFisherman comes calling, you don't turn them down.
