    RE: Ike's new show – I remember riding around with Ray Scott back in 2005. He was there to emcee an Elite 50 Tournament on Lake Wissota.

    Ray told me then that Ike was the best thing that could happen for professional bass fishing at that time. He said he didn't know anyone as committed to the sport of bass fishing as Mike.

    Thanks, Ike, for your passion!

    RE: Dockside info – Internet talk today is harder to decipher than any dock talk of the past.

    RE: Iaconelli's new show – Ike, he does it his way in all aspects ... effectively, greatly, impressively. Congrats man, you are one of the few who make the sport of bass fishing viable. Thank you.

    RE: Balog on Wheeler – I'm so glad that this man is giving back to young people and sees the need to do this so they can learn the ins and outs of what a big job it is. Jacob is a very special person to do this. He sees the importance of being able to help others. I wish at times somebody did it for me. So they can some day follow their dreams like Jacob did. Thanks, Jacob.

    RE: Balog on Wheeler – A commendable feat by a successful pro who's paying the sport forward to our future anglers. The interest is already there, but for these young anglers this icing on the cake incentive goes over the top. Thank you, JW.

    RE: Young Canadian's focus – Wonderful story. Wonderful family.

    RE: Dowden honored by home state – As a B.A.S.S. Classic "press angler" for a number of years prior to video, I can tell you, Bo Dowden was clearly "a good ride." Focused but engaging, there were two things I remember in particular. He asked me, "George, how do you come up with new stories to write? Seems like everything has been written." And he answered my own question of how they pronounced the name home town: Nak-eh-tish. I know I won't forget those brief trips with Bo. Glad Louisiana hasn't forgotten either.

    RE: Lonnie Stanley passes – Lonnie, who is in the Texas Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, deserves his place in the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame. His tournament record aside, he developed or help develop so many baits and refined the baits that we use every day. From colored jig weed guards, interchangeable jig skirts, the Vibra Shaft tapered wire spinnerbait, the Wedge Blade, metal flake and silicone jig and spinnerbait skirts, just to name a few. He did this while fishing the Bassmaster Tour winning two events including the Megabucks and qualifying for five Bassmaster Classics. Few in the sport did more for so many than Lonnie Stanley. He kept his operation in Texas when so many companies took their business overseas.

    RE: Lonnie Stanley passes – I still believe the 1/2-ounce Vibrashaft Spinnerbait with tapered shaft and blade in double colorado is/was the finest spinnerbait made. I can feel that bait better than most any other spinnerbait and it has caught thousands of bass for me. I wish the Stanley company would/could duplicate that lure exactly how they made it in the '80s.

    RE: Avena had company – If the kids were in that spot before you were chasing those schoolers, then tou’re the one that needs talking to. But either way someone, be it kids or A.A., needs some etiquette lessons. I’ve gotta suspect it’s the kids and A.A. is doing nothing wrong.

    RE: Ike's kayak win – Mike, I am 66 years old and in my time you are one of the best. Keep it up, keep on fishing, be safe.

    RE: COVID strikes BPT – I guess some of the COVID-positive illegal migrants were shipped to the area of ICAST to work as spreaders. Finish the wall!

  • Don Smith of Edwardsburg, OH writes:

    RE: COVID strikes BPT – MLF should have taken a stand and made it mandatory for all contestants to be vaccinated. These guys travel all over the country and room together. Hopefully they all recover.

  • Paul Wallace of Cambridge City, IN writes:

    RE: COVID strikes BPT – Anyone who saw what happened to Jon Rahm, the golfer, at the Memorial Tournament, where he was up 6 strokes and got yanked for the final day because of a positive COVID test, should get the vaccine. If you participate in professional sports as an individual you stand a good chance to lose money. In Jon's case, $1.7 million.

    RE: Nixon's steadiness – I know what Larry means about his aim being off after shoulder surgery. I didn't have a replacement, but just getting it cleaned out, I would throw everything off to the left (right shoulder worked on) - casts, baseball, whatever. Finally got better after months of working on it.

  • Floyd D. Payne III of Chicago Heights, IL writes:

    RE: Windy City Classic – I remember that tournament! Proud to be a life member! I didn't know about the kids throwing rocks, though. And I couldn't believe the low attendance! I never saw any TV/radio publicity about the Classic until the morning of Championship Sunday. Wonder if B.A.S.S, will ever return to the Windy City?

  • Mark Ripp of Belmont, WI writes:

    RE: Windy City Classic – I know the Classic in Chicago often gets a bad rap and for many reasons it deserves to. That said, for a 15-year-old kid such as myself living in Wisconsin, it was my best opportunity to go to a Classic at the time. To me, it was a great Classic because it came to a part of the country that at the time hadn’t really seen a major tournament like that. While it may not have brought the results or the fanfare as most Classics, for some it was still the greatest show in fishing. I’d like to see it go to more unconventional places to expose more people to it outside of the typical audience.

  • Dennis Pentecost of Milford, IL writes:

    Really getting disillusioned with all these bass pros doing nothing but pushing high-priced equipment that l and the common guy cannot afford. They have become in my eyes nothing more than insurance and car salesmen!

  • Bob Scheurer of Linden, CA writes:

    RE: Nixon's steadiness – It is great reading an article like this on such an amazing angler. I am also up in years and have grown up watching these pros as I learned from them. Health issues may slow us elders a little, but we press on. Go get 'em, Larry!
