How long did we wait to get this one started?

14 posts in this topic

Only to have a rain caution just a few laps in. I understand it is earlier out there, but still if they started it at noon they wouldn't have this problem. I wish the dang Bassmaster Classic was broadcast live. Instead I am listening to the weigh-in live online.

I'm watching the Classic on ESPN360 with one eye on the race. Needless to say the Classic is a lot more entertaining at this point! Apparently the network determines the starting time to a point and they like to have it run right to their primetime programming. I think that rule needs to change as it's two weeks in a row now that this has made for terrible racing.

I am also getting sick of them asking a question and telling you to go to ask dot com to get the answer. They must get a 1000 dollar bonus every time they say it.

I muttered all those same words this evening! laugh

But really, it doesn't always start raining at the same time.

Recording the Classic replay right now so I can FF to the fishing parts.

mad I forgot about the "classic" coverage...

When the race was over I went right to speed for victory lane. Not realy watching it, but listening to it while wiring and devicing a bathroom and future ceiling fans....

On a brighter note, at least the racing was OK. 'bout as good as a 2 mile flat track can be, I guess.

it doesnt always rain at the same is true

but !!! its much easy and faster drying a track in the daylight rather than the dark of night

plus sunday afternoons are for racing not sun nights

sat night are ok.....plus have sun if it does rain

again as someone said tv sets the time

it all bout money...not racin anymore

If he wins the first 26 races and has a 260 points lead going into the chase will they change the format again?

I agree. He is one of the few that can just shut his mouth and drive. I don't like the WWE, so I don't need all that [PoorWordUsage].

      Thanks for  good read ! 

      Was this your first elk trip ? 

      Yep for most in the group it was our first real trip out West, next trip will probably be mule deer, tag soup on elk hurts a lot more with how pricey those tags are.

    • I am planning to be there as well.

    • I also use the zman original chatterbait. I am a chatterbait nut. Probably one of my favorite baits to throw. The strike king pure poisons are great too but swim a little lower in the water column than the zmans. My biggest fish the past few years have usually come on a chatterbait in the spring and fall. Early spring and late fall I will use mostly a chartreuse/white chatterbait with a white super fluke as a trailer. Very subtle action on the fluke, which I love in the colder water periods. Once the water starts warming up a bite I will switch to a lake fork tackle live magic shad. I'll throw mostly the zmans candy craw with a green pumpkin lake fork magic shad. I fish these over the top and through weeds in the spring and fall and rip them if they get caught in the weeds. They also work great around docks and skipping them under docks. A few weeks ago I wish fishing a dirty lake with a great dock bite and caught about 18-19lbs off of chatterbaits by fishing them around docks and skipping them under docks.

    • I think we all need to keep in mind that the defense is basically the exact same group of players and coaches that were together all of last year.  They should be performing better than the offense.  Whereas, the offense has been completely reshaped during the off season and through injury.  It will take time to gel.  Also, remember the impact Diggs made last year once he was ready to play.  Zimmer just made the same comment about Treadwell not being ready yet.  Not saying he will make a huge impact, but he could provide an improvement over Johnson.  The O line needs to get it figured out.  Berger is solid, Fusco and Clemmings are improving.  Boone/Sirles and Smith need to get better quickly.

      The defense carried the team through the last two weeks, which are also the most difficult weeks with the exception of GB in GB.  They are in great shape with what appears to be a favorable schedule based on early results in the NFL.  If the offense improves and the defense remains solid, they should have a good chance to win in most games.  Not saying they will win all games, just a chance to win.  And hope it doesn't come down to a last second field goal!

      They have to tell themselves something because admitting that their party and these candidates are trash is too hard for some. It's almost religious the amount of devotion some people have to these parties.

      Irrational Escalation of Commitment is certainly present - from both sides - in a major way this election cycle. I think it's odd that so many people on both Team Blue and Team Red are unwilling to admit that their party's candidate is a turd with enormous flaws that ought to disqualify them from serious consideration for office.

    • MH casting rod, braided line (w/fluoro leader if needed in clear water), grass pig or skinny dipper for a trailer. Great year-round bait...too many people think of it only as a spring/fall deal, but it will whack em all year.
    • I've been using the Strike King Pure Poison version of the chatterbait mostly because like the line attachment better.  They use a oval split ring instead of a snap that is on the Zman version.  I usually use a swim bait or a grub, for a swim bait I started using a lake fork paddle tail but it got to be too expensive, so I switched to using a havoc grass pig.  I usually use braided line with mine to prevent bite offs from Pike.

    • A lot of the people that I know who were Bernie supporters seem to be leaning 3rd party at the moment.  They were supporting Bernie because they were fed up with the crapola we are normally fed and they saw it as a vote against the system.  Now that he's out of the race and we are stuck with these 2 candidates they are still on the "buck the system" trend and are leaning toward a 3rd party candidate of some sort.  We'll see how they actually vote when the time comes as the lure to vote against Trump will probably be strong with them so they may still vote Hillary despite their own objections. Personally the debate didn't change my opinion and I don't anticipate anything that will change my mind before the election.  I'm still planning to vote for Doogie Howser, M.D.
