Im not.

I voted for AOY. I feel that your a better fisherman if you win that becuase its a process, not just a succesful tournament!!

I guess it depends on if you are doing it for the money or not. If its all about the money? Then win the classic play the sponsor game and make a load of moolah... You have to be good to get to the classic.. and you have to be good to win the classic, but you can catch a bit of luck, and win it... I dont think you can catch a bit of luck and win AOY... thats skill...

I would want them all!.. LOL.. and win the FM tournament. wink.gif

Haha @ Deitz... I was thinking the same thing before I saw your post. It was truly an honor last year, theres a lot of good sticks that frequent this forum, and it will be hard for us to defend the title! grin.gif. Besides that I'd say angler of the year for BASS.

I think if I was chasing money and sponsorsI would want to win a classic because it is the daddy of all torneys and it will make anyones career however i think you would probably be more respected byyour peers for winning an AOY however me and my little time tourney career I would just love to win an fm tourney.

if i won the classic, i could die a happy man. however, i feel that AOY gets you the respect from your peers. i would rather have rick clunn think i'm a good fisherman than joe sixpack watching espn in two weeks.

speaking of which, can't wait till the classic cool.gif

I'll say other. Anytime I can beat Deitz is like winning the Classic. grin.gif

In all reality, the one I want to win most is the next one I fish. I don't really care if it's for $10 or $10000. I don't really like finishing 2nd. That's just first loser.

Classic, don't even have to think about it. Super bowl of all tournaments. Sponsors, money, history, first guy from MN to win it. AOY looks nice on your resume, but AOY with no Classic win, just does not put you on the same shelf.

To me its easily the CLSSIC, I know what you guys say buy AOY having to have a complete year and all. But in my opinion, in order to make the classic you have to be in the top 50 already. And to me just making the top 50 is a very good season. So having said that, the classic would be the icing on the cake.

my answer was 2 answers as well. It really does depend on what your motivation is. I know that once a man has money and doesn't have respect as the best at what he does he could bring in 7 digits a day and still wouldn't be happy. A man must conquer his task to the fullest.

So i wonder if we started a poll that asked, "What do you think is more important to the pro anglers" if we wouldn't have more people saying aOY. just interesting. I think, as someone stated earlier, we being joe six pack would love to win the classic but i would willing to bet guys really strive for AOY. Just my thoughts.

If I was a pro angler I would go for the FLW AOY for one reason - BENJAMINS - if you finished high enough in enough FLW events to win AOY the sponsors would not really matter because the payouts are so much bigger on that circuit.

And, if I had a even a million $$$ I would not have to work ever again which is the primary goal....

Fame and glory are awesome but, like the movie says, "Show me the MONEY" LOL

Daze Off

Classic hands down

I bet Roland Martin would trade all of his AOY titles for a Classic win????

Does anyone think that Rick Clunn would trade a single Classic win for anything else?

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
