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.

    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.    
    • After doing a little looking there are a lot of options to these things. Anyone know how that new V6 compares to the in line 6? Some of the stuff I would like is the bigger tires and because I would consider putting a plow on it a lower rear end gear. The Dana 44 rear axel would be nice and would want a hard and soft top. I'm in no hurry to get one so Ill wait till the right one comes around. There are a lot of them out there that never leave the tar. More options in the later models as far as transmissions to. So it also comes down to how much I want to spend on one and how late of a model to buy. Sure don't want to spend 35K on a new one.
    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....
