    RE: Ranger resignations – As a longtime Ranger boat owner and an employee of a Ranger dealer, I am greatly disappointed with the resignations. Randy Hopper and Keith Daffron will be greatly missed. Thanks for all your help and support. It makes me wonder what direction Mr. Morris is heading with the company. I wish the best for Randy and Keith – you were always all in for Ranger and the Ranger family. Good luck, guys.

    RE: Ranger resignations – This is not good. Randy Hopper did so much for that place. I thought him and Johnny were friends. Very odd he is out the door. Ranger will suffer and the quality will go down, for sure.

  • Don Beckley of Paducah, KY writes:

    RE: McMillan declines Elites – That was a very smart decision! My congratulations to you.

  • Johnny McLean of Little Rock, AR writes:

    RE: Bagley tradition re-established – Good news, I just hope that they really are true knock-offs of the originals. The Kill'r Bee series was truly a classic.

    RE: Chapman's Pro vs. Joe – First time I watched. Great show. I'll be looking foward to more. Can I see past shows?

    BassFan says: Past episodes of the show can be seen here.

    RE: Ranger resignations – I see this as a sign of bad things to come for Ranger.

  • Ellis Cole of Moore Haven, FL writes:

    RE: Ranger resignations – I was a Ranger dealer for a few years and there is not a finer gentleman to work with anywhere than Randy Hopper. He will certainly be missed.

  • David Rose of Lexington, KY writes:

    RE: Ranger resignations – It appears the writing had been on the wall for a while and a line was drawn in the sand and the rest is history, I guess. Sure hope the quality isn't going to be compromised.

    RE: Ranger resignations – I think we all saw it coming when Bass Pro took over.

  • Dennis Pentecost of Milford, IL writes:

    The truth is that there are only about 20 pros making a living fishing. The rest are just barely making it, just like the rest of America, and it is not going to get better!

  • Steve Bowman of North East, MD writes:

    RE: Balog on release boats – Such a great article. This is a topic I bring up often. It would be great if everyone could do this. A friend of mind and tournament director is actively attempting to make this happen, which brings us to our next hurdle: getting the boat. It will be very hard for the funds and equipment to be acquired.

    With the growing popularity of tournament fishing, it is something that should be at the top of our priority list as anglers, for sure. We need more articles like this. We can read all the articles we want about how to catch them, but if there aren't any of "them" to catch, it won't do us much good.

    Matt Herren ... 53 is the new 30! Go get 'em, man.

    RE: Middle River fish kill – Tilley Chemical Company has been discharging chemicals into Cow Pen Creek. They even made efforts to hide the discharge. They need to be fined several million dollars and forced to pay for all restoration efforts.

  • Zach Parkent of Abingdon, MD writes:

    RE: Middle River fish kill – There is no way this is an algae bloom. An algae bloom in November? An algae bloom that kills of 100,000 fish? Neither has ever happened. It's absurd to think that there isn't a company releasing something into the water and I hope when they are exposed that they crumble and go bankrupt. It makes me sick to my stomach as a bass angler who lives 10 minutes from this river.

  • Mark Poulson of Oakley, CA writes:

    RE: Middle River fish kill – It should be pretty easy for the local officials to hire a leak-detection company, with fiber optic cameras, to trace that pipe's discharge back up to its source. Is there some reason they won't do that?

  • Steve Chaconas of Alexandria, VA writes:

    RE: Middle River fish kill – Scott Sewell is the region's leader in restoring and protecting the tidal fisheries. Scott has been involved not only this recent incident, but every issue affecting Maryland fisheries! Thanks for your positive leadership, Scott.

  • Leon Stamps of Redding, CA writes:

    RE: Tips for catching big spots – Great article, good insight on how large spots eat, school and play the waiting game. Thanks – a must-share.

  • Victor Holt of Jonesboro, AR writes:

    RE: Balog on fish care – I agree with the use of release boats in order to keep all tournament fish from ending up back in the water at the weigh0in site, especially at large events. However, trying to return each bass close to its individual home range would create a logistical nightmare. We know that when a fish is removed from a favored location that another fish quickly takes up residence. Also, we know that certain individual bass that are caught are often caught again, whether at a release site or its home range.

    As has been the case for several decades, fish-handling care is the greatest single and most successful tactic for preserving our favorite resource. Fish on!

  • Joe McKinnon of Waltham, MA writes:

    RE: Balog on fish care – One problem with Sqaum Lake is the lack of a weigh-in site on Big Squam. All big tournaments weigh in on Little Squam and then transfer the fish back to Big Squam. Some see this as an issue because they do not want to go back and forth through the channel. If Squam Lake found a weigh-in site for us to use, this would help not only the anglers but the fish for less handling and livewell time.

  • George Kramer of Lake Elsinore, CA writes:

    I see the Ray Hanselman feat as more proof you can’t fish your way into a pro career. For one, I never heard of the guy before. Second, his success in the Rayovacs (by standards) is merely triple-A. And three, what angler under contract (and familiar to the public) are they going to replace (in 5 weeks) with last year’s brightest star?
