BFL

Recommended Posts

so, i am gonna fish a couple BFL's this year(co-angler) because i like the idea of a higher stakes tourney for weekend anglers. i fished my first one last summer and found a lot more wrapped boats, and sponsered anglers than i expected. i fished with one of these guys and found that most of them are part time guides looking to suplement income and compete. i am fine with that, but on facebook the other day, i found out that Marty Stone is gonna fish 9 BFL's this year. former elite series pro Marty Stone in competeing in 9 tournaments designed for weekend anglers. i am all for competing against top competion, but it would be nice if FLW had a tournament winnings maximum for the BFL events. still a Marty Stone fan, but if i were the guy putting my $300 in the pot to fish out of a 15 year old bass boat i might be upset to see him in the same feild.

Somewhat agree. But there is a reason Marty didn't make it in the Elites or the FLW tour. You can say economy all you want, but if you are good, you can make it, and he had the PR skills to make it, but for the last how many years, never did.

On the other side. I would love the chance to say "yep, finished higher than Marty Stone"

There might be a reason he is tooling around in a boat and asking other guys what THEY are catching them on during "Major League Fishing" rather than having somebody come up to him and ask what HE is catching them on. Don't p

BLFs are a qualifying event for bigger circuits and if you didnt know Marty was out of the game for a couple years and easing back in. This is like a Bassmaster open that is open to whoever wants to fish and pay, a lot of Elite series anglers fish those. A lot of FLW pros fish the smaller tournaments as well. Its still an FLW event. This isn't your average small tournament circuit and is fished by a lot of full time proffesionals. I guess your signing up for it. These guys arent coming to your tuesday night leagues and taking your money.

    • Figured I would post me and my brothers build on here since this is where I got most of the information from. Thanks to lipripper for posting his builds and answering questions. I pretty much based the house off of his with a couple of my own tweaks. Im not sure how pictures are posted on this it’s looking like they will all be at the end of my post so maybe I’ll start with one post then keep adding to it so the pictures stay in some order ( I was bad at taking pictures so I probably missed some stuff) So here we go...   The frame is a Berkon 21’ with a 4’ V galvanized. We called berkon and the guy said they had one frame left and it was $700 cheaper than normal price since they were changing something for ice castle so we put money down to hold it then he called and said ice castle needed it but they were going to make us a new one (this was the start of our struggles). Which actually worked out nice since we could move some bracing around and move the hydraulic pump to a different spot. We had them move the back center brace so we could have 3 holes between our couches similar to papabear. We  thought about doing aluminum but the guy at berkon said the weight savings would only be about 700 lbs and I personally don’t like how aluminum seems to get brittle in the cold.  Prior to getting the frame I tried to order as much stuff as I could think of like others have said to do but since this was our first fish house I wasn’t 100% sure on everything. I used google sketch to layout the studs and the windows. Hoping everything would work out as planned. 
    • Spring only for me, when Orioles first return. Mine never get hit much. 
    • Not sure if somebody put a lot of time in to make this or if it was something Arctic Cat made. I could see someone pulling this around Hay Days.Thought it was just to cool to pass up. 
    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
