17 posts in this topic

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.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
