What Our Sport Needs!

By Roper Outdoors - Posted on 06 September 2011

I was thinking about what’s going on in the realm of fishing and tournament fishing and what I see our sport needs. These are the words that came to mind Energy, Excitement, Honesty, Passion, Wisdom/Creativity, Integrity, Discipline, and most of all SPORTSMANSHIP. Some people have to, as my father would say, “Bite the Bullet” and do things the way they know it should be done. Change is not easy but it is necessary. Just like most discipline does not feel good but is essential in making you mature.

These thought came about from reading what happened at a Bass Northern Open tournament on Lake Erie and reflections of a couple of other events that I will not say that happened in several crappiei tournament circuits this year. To read about what happened on Lake Erie go to

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
