I don't have a problem with where the State tourney was held - as long as that location rotates every year to help limit any advantage gained by being familiar with the area. Otherwise, if it were centrally located every year out of convenience, then those schools that reside in Central Illinois would have an on-going advantage!

Now, maybe the lake choice wasn't great. But, there may be logistical reasons for that tourney location - volunteers and a volunteering host school would play a big part into that equation I would bet. You have to have the people willing to run the show regardless of where that show is! Plus, in reality tough fishing replicates the real world of fishing! Those thunderstorms would have impacted you anywhere you fished!

Also, just a clarification Connor - don't thank the IHSA, thank your coaches and all the parents that volunteered! All the IHSA did was collect their fees for utilizing their name, structure and holding the event. Which, believe me - wouldn't be an event IF numerous volunteers/coaches/parents didn't step up and do all the legwork!
