    RE: FFS poll – It's unthinkable to ban technology that helps anglers catch fish and learn more about their behavior and feeding habits. It's here to stay, learn to use it, or get better at catching shallow fish. John Cox doesn't seem to have any problems.

    I watched a podcast last night on YouTube and heard there's a rumor that the big leagues are going to limit forward-facing sonar to one transducer. This is like putting a tiny Band-Aid on a huge wound.

    In my opinion, they need to eliminate forward-facing sonar at the top levels. Just like you can't use an aluminum bat in Major League Baseball because it affects the game.

    It seems none of the people in command at the top levels have the integrity of the sport at heart anymore. It's all about the dollar signs.

    It is time that someone in command starts doing things for the betterment of the sport and not their bank account.

    RE: Williams' HOF journey – Mr. Williams is a true legend in the sport of bass fishing. I met him fishing the BFLs and he was always very nice and friendly. This is an honor that’s been a long time coming. Congratulations, you definitely deserve it!

    RE: FFS poll – We can only hope. I have been saying all along that venue variation and some reasonable limitations like one graph at the console, one up front should help balance this out. Also, fish seen on FFS need to be caught in the mouth for worms and jigs and at least around the mouth for moving baits.

    RE: FFS poll – Wow! FFS is horrible. Alabama Rig is horrible. The 250-hp motor is horrible. The foot-steer trolling motor is horrible. Why, oh, why is everyone so afraid of innovation and new technology?

  • Stephen Oglesby of Cooper, TX writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Honestly, I think FFS is here to stay and with technology growing at the rate it is, the FFS and fishfinder technology we will have 10 years from now will make the current FFS look like it is from the Stone Age. I'll go out on a limb and say not too far down the road, more than likely your fish finder will be driven by software loaded on to your outboard's ECM. You'll just have monitors or heads-up display to view it all.

  • Charlie McFadden of Winchester, VA writes:

    RE: FFS poll – If not monitored, FFS has the potential to decimate fish populations, mainly bass and crappie.

  • Steven Ringeisen of Coraopolis, PA writes:

    RE: FFS poll – FFS will only get support in this vote because the people that voted for it have already purchased it. it is too late to ban it now, too many people already have it.

  • Ric Riles of Lafayette, LA writes:

    RE: FFS poll – I hate it because my generation who learned to fish using our experience and instincts are completely undermined by instant visual proof as to where and how the fish are setting up. It’s ruined top-level tournament fishing for me.

  • Phil Tinmell of Lavista, NE writes:

    RE: FFS poll – I'm for it.

  • Toby Corn of Paducah, KY writes:

    RE: FFS poll – I am a NO on FFS.

  • Stephen McGuire of Broadlands, VA writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Strongly vote to keep FFS. I got it late last fall and love it. It makes fishing fun again and I am certainly not hurting the fishing stocks, rather I am learning a ton more about bass that we were all taught wrong for such a long time.

  • Adam Walters of Milwaukee, WI writes:

    RE: FFS poll – I'm against forward-facing sonar.

  • Jeffery Archie of Paris, TN writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Ban it – it will destroy fishing.

  • Duane Bretes of Richland, MI writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Limit use to one transducer.

  • Patrick W. Ross of Bella Vista, AR writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Fishing with FFS requires little to no actual fishing skill. It is nothing more than an advanced video game. The only skill required to find fish is watch the screen. Can they skip a jig under a dock, walk the dog with a Spook, or any of the other skills required to be a complete angler? If they are "elite" anglers they don't need to use FFS.

  • Mike Hawkes of Sabinal, TX writes:

    RE: FFS poll – As much as I dislike FFS in tournaments, I hate to see the government involved in regulating us at all. The tournament organization needs to limit its use. State agencies need to manipulate the bag limits to prevent depleting the resource.

  • Chris Barrett of Ontario, CAN writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Bass tournaments should be a measure of anglers' ability to read water and use their instincts to catch fish in a tournament ... FFS contradicts these traits. All mainstream sports have equipment committees to determine if a piece of equipment conforms with a sport's traditional intention for play. The big circuits should have had a policy in place – anglers cannot catch fish using technology that enables an angler to see fish in real time. FFS is too much technology for this game.

  • David Harrison of Huntsville, TX writes:

    RE: Surman's Elite quest – Great article and interview with Mike! Thanks, John! Being 60-plus myself, I'm pulling for him to make it.

  • Gary Pryor of Gallatin, TN writes:

    RE: FFS poll – Ban forward-facing sonar, it is killing our sport! Most of the high tech that has come out in recent years is taking away the outdoor experience, the thrill of being in nature and relying on your instincts and experience. I don't have to catch fish to enjoy a trip outdoors. It is the sounds and smells and sights I encounter that are memorable. In today's world, fish don't account for much and are being used as pawns in a video game of greed chasing a dollar. Sad.
