6 pm news time, and guess what? It is getting scary. We knew this was going to happen. What ramifications are going to be the worst?
Most times I don’t have a problem speaking my mind. Most times I can change an outcome with the written word, petition, the media, but what do I do about this? Where do I turn to? Who can I yell at? Gas prices are now at record high and not about to go down anytime soon. Great! Just in time for Spring tournaments.
Maybe I can blame myself and that I can contribute to the greener cause and use a kayak (I do own one, a Hobie Mirage and I love it.) Perhaps I can stay on the shore? Should I just stay home more?
I hate to be a downer, but folks this is serious! What is going to happen when it gets to $10.00 per? I might have an answer. First is, to get rid of these high priced gas hogs for motors. Maybe find a diesel. Next is, everybody on one big boat. Food and drink extra, or instead of the big boat everybody in paddleboats or canoes. Of course the co-angler will have to row! Then we can only bring one pole and a small bag.
Ok I think you get the point, that being, we really need a plan if this is to be the future of tournament fishing. I can see it reaching everything from entry fees, to the reduction of the anglers just getting by. I’ll tell you what; I’m going to start hitting up the gas companies for sponsorship.
But I still want someone to yell at.
