    I do of course. My goals are more oriented towards promoting and running quality events. My goal in that respect is to his the 50-teams mark for attendance in 2009. I missed my 2008 goal of 40 teams by only 2

    I have been fishing tourneys for many years now. Most of the ones I fish are small local tourneys up and down the Muskingum River ran by local bait stores. I didn't get to fish as many this year due to lack of time. I won 2, got a second place, and a dnf in another... My goal is simply to win. However, I think next year it will be just to fish as much as I can find the time to get out and enjoy the sport rather than try to enjoy it comepetitvely.. rollo

    I really like tournament fishing. All the tourneys I fish are on the Ohio. Most of them out of southern Indiana. Yep they are quite a drive for me but I love fishing down there. Guess my goals for next year would be to finally win one. lol. Can't wait till spring time or when ever the river decides to cooperate again next year.

    I started fishing tourneys about a year ago, did about 8 of them this year, ( Ohio Hills, Cincy River cats, Dura cats, Acats, SW Oh Cat club) sucked something fierce at all of them. Most was on unfamilliar water so as I am learning more water, and building confidence, i hope this next year to fish another 8 or so tourneys and get into a few bigger one and hopefully actually place, that would be a whole new concept for me.....:eek:oooh: I think the ultimate goal would actually be able to bring home more money then I started out with, right now my deficit resembles the national debt.....

    We have won our share of money over the years... But, for the money spent in preperation, gas/travel, food for the night, and getting our butt whipped on an occasion..lol... im not even close to breaking even, and the deficit if added up over the years would be something a financial advisor couldn't even fix.... LMAO! But, what else would you be doing with that extra money? right?...?:eek:oooh: :big_smile: rollo
