This was on TV today.
Did you see it when he fell off the boat climbing down and still landed the red? It was kind of funny! ;D ;D ;D
No. I was to busy taking a picture of this guy. That had to be funny.
BTW, the look on my wife's face when I start taking pictures of the TV is priceless too.
I was watching "the tour" sometime this week and a bunch of them had ladders on board. I was thinking about following them under a distributorship for the "little giant" ladder. ;D ;D ;D Pictures of them falling off would be priceless IMHO
Tom, you the new paparazzi of fishing? ;D ;D ;D
I think its a great idea, people have been doing it for years
I heard there are a few guys that want Joe
to make 'em carbon fiber ladders...
Personally I think it should be banned. Its just stupid. I shows what ridiculous stuff people will do to catch fish. Especially when money is on the line. If this is acceptable then what about a fishing electronics company mounting a camera and fish tracking system on a 50 ft pole? How about parasail scouting? Creative? Yes but a ladder or other big vertical advantage takes away for what I consider the enjoyable aspects of flats fishing.
The guy on the ladder is from Deland. I'm sure there's a redneck joke to be made here somewhere.
I see someone doing more with less...
as compared to spending money for these:
There was a team back in the 90's that used to use an ultra light to scout fish. I never thought it would ever get to it, but they did use it on some tour when they fist started getting big. Why not build a raised bow deck about 6' up on the bow. Talk about a heck of a raised bow casting platform!!!
Bruce is a friend of mine, he owns this weld shop. He does class action work. If you ever need welding done, this is the guy to go with. He used to do all my custom towers and tanks when I was at Action Craft.
Who said tourney fishing was enjoyable?
Tom, A Ladder if Far more fishing ethical then a Trolling Motor
this picture is worth 2000 words, to me anyway it speaks volumes about these redfish tournament guys...
Tower boat wantabe's? ;D ;D
That's a bad idea and stupid enough to fall off the ladder and landed on the console if this happend.
Safety comes first!
Does the tournment have rules for this?
I can't let this go: Well, maybe I better. ;D ;D I will say that the gene pool has no life guards.
And that it gets chlorinated regularly...
Unfortunately my take on this stuff is that it's not about fishing anymore. It's about the competition and the money. And winning.
I turned this show off years ago when they showed some goons with a big-block on the back of a flats boat trying to see how far up the creek they could get, shredding the bottom to heck. When they began to get stuck, they merely pinned the throttle and dug themselves a trench until they beached it. Then they systematically tried to push and pull their way off the grass beds using all that HP.
And you and I are concerned about leaving no trace with a NMZ and a pushpole. Go figure.
What happened to conservation? Would those guys have even thought about doing that had there not been fame/fortune on the lines, or if some big corporate sponsor wasn't paying to get TV exposure no matter how they get it?
Boggles the mind.
So all bets are off unless they tighten the rules. I think they should immediately include a clause that bans all spotter planes and other nonsense as the evolution of this show and series is certainly heading in that direction.
