  1. Toyota series pays good and they are hosted on great fisheries bfl is a thing of the past our weekend tournaments pay almost as much as bfl and they are small open tournaments

  2. Yeah, I was just running numbers on kayak tournaments for tours that require travel and overnight stays. It gets pricey. But, if you win a big event, it more than covers the cost for the year.

  3. I miss the old days with the club tournaments and the federation. My dad made it on the 1995, 1994 and 1997 state team to the regional and once to the national and they picked his bills up. Even gave him free clothing. Today, it seems like the fishermen are the "marks" in the business.

  4. BFL's are pretty much just for gaining experience in my opinion. I honestly will use them to pre-fish for the following weekends big money tournaments most of the time, as sad as it sounds. If someone is fishing them to win money, it isn't the way to go. There are a ton of trails nowadays for that! Thankfully

  5. The average cost per event will very largely based upon the distance an individual must travel to each event. Up here in MI, all 5 events are on the Great Lakes and connecting waterways, so that a person living in or near Metro Detroit, may only have to travel to a single tournament, with very few, if any, overnight stays needed, which would drastically reduce the cost. That being said, you point remains valid, that the BFL's are not cheap to fish. Simply breaking even on the season, is no easy task.

  6. It's surprising nobody has brought up how most tournament circuits actually pay less than they did 5-8 years ago. The BFL's have stayed with the same payout money for at least the last 10 years. Factor inflation and everything else going up, people are fishing for WAY less money. It can be done, just make sure you've got $1200 a month disposable income

  7. I fish in BFL in choo choo division. I’m a co-angler. It’s not that expensive for us. But those prices make me wanna stay on the back of the boat lol. Do a video about co-angler ethics. What they should and shouldn’t do according to your experience

  8. Yeah the gasoline ⛽️ is the largest expense, that didn't surprise me, but the actual price is a bit higher then I thought it would be. Good luck out there….jimi
