I'm with you on this. Too bad they couldn't do it the way "major league fishing" on tv does it. They have judges right out there. Cut the tourneys down to one day events. between a certain area like the troy tournament does. You could have a few judges stationed out in boats with scales and rulers. Land a fish, call it over the radio and have a judge come check it, then release it. Idk. Hate to see these big cows taken.
