    Most pro bass fishermen now have a podcast because most of them are better at talking about bass fishing than they are at catching bass!

    RE: Balog on 2023 stars – I love your articles, but you left out the most important factor: FFS/LiveScope.

    RE: Balog on St. Johns habitat – Get rid of the manatees and turtles.

    What is an ex-Classic Champion? Never heard of that. Once a Classic champ, always a Classic champ!

    RE: Balog on St. Johns habitat – Outstanding article. Wish I lived closer and could lend a hand. Joe, keep fightin’ the fight.

    RE: Balog on St. Johns habitat – Surprised it took this long to get to your lakes. It’s happening everywhere, a lot. Gaston Lake is former grass lake and Shearon Harris was a Top-10 lake in the country until they killed all the grass. Kerr Lake is a shell or its former self. Grass came along for 2-3 years and there were incredible stringers again until they killed that grass.

    I fished with Mark Tucker as my pro in two Heartland Pro-Am events. Needless to say, he won one of them and placed in the other. This guy was an amazing angler, and didn't mind sharing his knowledge with his amateur in the back of the boat. He sure taught a lot of fishermen a lot. RIP Mark.

    RE: Memorial scholarship for Purdue angler – Thank you for this article. Travis was my cousin and watching him pursue his dream in a time when it was so different than I grew up was amazing. He definitely was an inspiration to more than just the fishing community. I appreciate you helping remember his legacy and giving it the publicity that it deserves in such a tragic time.

    RIP Mr. Tucker.

    RE: Jocumsen's journey – It's a real shame and an absolute travesty that Carl and Kayla have had to go through all of the BS that they have had to deal with and the money they have had to spend to stay in this country legally, but yet if you're an illegal alien all you have to do is walk across the border and you're given a welcome home party and free gifts and your paperwork is done for you and it's free. What a joke.

    RE: Nixon's retirement – To my eye, Larry has always been a class act. All the best to him.

  • George Kramer of Lake Elsinore, CA writes:

    RE: Murphy recognized by FWFHOF – So glad to see this. Bill was there in the beginning in California, and truly iconic (though perhaps a bit "prickly" at times, as one put it). When he passed in 2004, the game was already changing and, unfortunately, some anglers would do almost anything to get the recognition Murphy had attained. His on-the-water career was founded on things he learned from his predecessors, plus an artistic vein and his own hard work. Without sonar at first, he actually found structure changes by pounding his anchor on the bottom and recording contours. Murphy was dogged to a fault, his long hours in the sun spurring the cancer that took his life at 65. This was a good call by FWFHOF.

  • Thomas Tanner of Jonestown, TX writes:

    I grew up idolizing guys like Larry Nixon. I later had the opportunity to meet him several times and he is a really fine person. I still have more respect for the guys who worked their way up in the sport than some of the new guys who jump into the sport with a brand-new $150,000 worth of truck and boat as a graduation present.

  • Jack Covas of Waco, TX writes:

    Larry Nixon's retirement will probably open the Legends exemption for Jordan Lee.

    BassFan says: Indeed it did.

  • Gerald Andrews of Benton, KY writes:

    Truth be known, all the guys who are “retiring” are doing so not for family reasons. It’s FFS Disease that’s got 'em. All their lives they honed their skills in reading the water, seasonal patterns and time on the water. With LiveScope, all those things are useless.

  • Charlie Hartley of Grove City, OH writes:

    RE: Balog on fall smallmouth – Nothing like late, late-season smallmouth on Erie! The only reason I don't leave for Florida sooner. All my very best numbers days and P.B.'s are in November. Go Erie, go Joe Balog!

  • Dennis Pentecost of Hoopeston, IL writes:

    Several Elites leaving because they say for family reasons. I think we all know the truth is because they cannot feed their family trying to be a pro bass fisherman!

  • Matthew Czerepak of Cunningham, TN writes:

    RE: BPT changes – The five-fish-vs.-every-fish isn’t the reason viewership is down. Opinions are split on that and for every one they lose from one camp, they gain from the other. What isn’t split is the opinion on who wants to watch video-game fishing, with the vast majority of fans saying they don’t. Every-fish-counts will only make it more about FFS. Until they figure that out, viewership will continue to subside.

  • Johnny Houser of Bishopville, SC writes:

    RE: BPT changes – Run the drop in the field for 2024 and let's see who would be out. Very interesting.

  • David Harrison of Huntsville, AL writes:

    RE: Balog on BPT reversal – For the first time, I think Joe missed the point. To me, I don't care if every fish counts or just the biggest five, it is about fish care. No fish in the livewell for bumpy rides and weigh-ins. Spawning fish are released near the bed, not miles away. These tournaments do not have the mortality rates of livewell tournaments. A great example was when they went back to back on the same lake about a month apart several years ago. The fishery held up very well. This is the true value of the BPT format.
