A really good fisherman that decides not to go pro and just fishes the little amateur "fruit jar" tournaments will make more money than about 90% of pros.

If they go pro they would starve.
I make good money, I help the Family, but one thing must be understood, I would never go against the Godfather. Ruger is a man I respect. Luca Brasi

I don't follow tournament fishing that much, well, maybe more than the average outdoorsman...kind of goes with the job.

But I do think the Tiger Woods of bass fishing. He laughs at that description, by the way. Just my opinion, but I certainly believe it holds water, and if there is fish in KVD can catch 'em.

Yeah, I hear 'em mention his family's boat business back in Mich.
I was talking to him one time and I realized how big that "boat business" back in Michigan was.

"Man, I always pictured that being basically a bait shop..."

He thought that was pretty funny, too.

Yeah, bass fishing is supposed to be "a southern thing..."; but I would NEVER count this "Yankee" out...really amazing talent. Seeing him at the launch, has to be like seeing Tiger on the tee this feeling that at most, you are playing for second. lol.

Young guys coming on...yep, they certainly no more than the old schoolers did at their age (a lot of thanks to the old schoolers themselves)...havoc, maybe...IF they can afford to play the game on the big stage...

No telling the talent out there playing the game "fruit jar" style. But this could be said at any golf course, any gym, softball diamond, etc., etc.
Ambition, luck and lunacy (against all odds)...may make difference...dunno.

Again, stars have to align to make it in any pro sport...but also in line with the stars, in the bass pro world a the eye of a needle. LOL.
