crap decision, one of the challenges of this sport is dealing with the changing conditions. those guys are professional fisherman and boat operators, let them make the decisions for themselves.

we all go do this and we even have to sign our wavers of liability. We as boaters take on the liability of being there and the decisions we make. I lost a good friend to a boating accident at a Costa on Okeechobee and I experienced the brutal conditions that the boater tried to navigate to save 10 minutes of running around the rim canal. I went into the teeth of it looking for Nik for the next 4 days and it was ROUGH! My point being, with proper decision making and safety precautions there are few conditions that in my mind warrant cancelling a tournament day. Nik was lost because of a decision the driver of the boat made, not because of the tournament day nor the weather. And, this is after losing a good friend to such a decision. Be smart, this is a dangerous game we choose to play...
