Its all good Thad, didn't mean to make a scene. But I think tournaments and guides both sort of exploit a fishery, damage it... no.
Our club has a tournament on E once a year, we pay for launch passes for 2 days (only real days we use the lake) rent a spot each at the campground. We usually see about 5 or 6 boats at the same ramp as us. Lots of room in that lake IMO. We don't ask for exemptions on limits or size and we release our catch. I think tournaments get a bad rap a lot of the time, and I sort of jumped the gun on my comments.
