    I think there is supposed to be a tournament associated with it. I heard that it will have a BA$$ style weigh in.

    Thanks for the link Ryan... I don't think I've ever seen Mr. Dance talk about anything but bass!

    There will be a tournament associated with this meeting. Ken Freeman is the coordinator/promoter. It is supposed to occur during the second week of June 2010. The tournament is supposed to kick off the meeting.

    I can't wait Chris.


    Danno, Mr. Bill loves to catfish from what I am told. I have seen him do a little of it on tv and I think he partners up with Big Cat Patterson. He probably is just following the money, can't blame him for that. I think him and the In-Fisherman group do more for catfishing than we realize. I have never met him but everyone who I have talked to who has says he is really into the sport and is a super nice guy.

    Having met bill dance and fished with james patterson(bill's tournament partner and fried) Bill is a really nice guy and likes to catfish more than bass fish but bass fishing appeals to a greater audience and makes more money.

    Ditto, I have met Bill & James Patterson guided me down around Memphis back, oh, 8-10 years ago. One week after we fished, the AR state record got broke for bluecats in the exact same hole we spent most of our time at.

    yeah i went out with patterson 2 years ago at memphis. We launched at mud island at the same time that bill did. Our boat caught more and bigger fish than bill did.
