are you asking for my personal experiences?

Rusty, I would not prefer to hear a bashing of a person or two from the CBA publicly, anymore then I would want to see someone bash the CFF publicly. I loved fishing them both. I fished the CFF from it's conception until I moved. Loved the guys and gals, loved the three fish limit and the more laid back format. I have to say I also loved fishing the CBA, harder bunch to fish against as far as having the local ringers, guides and even a couple pro's now and then. But the challenge was always tempting. Served as an officer with both for a while and got to see what it took to put on that both kinds of formats month after month. It was not easy to do either. I am sorry you had issues with the CBAs. I use to say if one does not fit you, fish another, there are so many tournaments around there if you look hard enough everyone should be able to find a format that is to their liking. Jmax

Rusty the only reason you are bad mouthing the CBA is because you got disqualified for weighing in a short fish, by Tennessee law it’s illegal to have a a non sizable bass in your possession.
The CBA has been around for going on 50 years , and the officers that do EVERYTHING to keep the CBA running do it for free . I also think you bad mouth the CBA because it’s too hard for you to compete . If you don’t like it then don’t fish them but don’t go around on the internet bad mouthing us because you have no idea how much time and how hard we work to keep this trail going . Just keep to your self and find something else to fish . I get so sick of seeing everybody’s comments about the CBA when nobody understands how much goes into it and also that are entry fees are LOWER then any other team trail and we pay out more year round then the other team trails .

ok wow.

Jmax i dont think we've gotten to meet and hope that when you come back down we can.

my opinions/experiences with the CBA arent based on a single incident or with any one person. i would say this, if folks are "sick" of hearing folks make negative comments about the CBA then maybe there should be some serious inquiry as to why this continues to happen. youre never going to please everyone, we all learn this as we go through life and being able to take criticism and learn from it is a path to growth.

Mr Barnes, you and your father are both respected in the community and have been fishing the CBA for decades, i appreciate your loyalty to something youve probably known your whole life.

so here are a few suggestions for the folks that run the CBA(most of this given to one of the officers during a phone conversation):

1. remember that the guys fishing your tournaments are your customers(whether youre getting paid or not) without them you have no tournament, stop acting like youre doing everyone a favor putting on these tournaments. if youre not doing it because you love to do it and love the sport then dont do it, the prevailing idea/feeling that youre doing "us" a favor by running these tournaments comes through in the interactions.
2. look REAL hard at the $30 per person membership fee. what is the fisherman getting for that money? does it need to exist?
3. if the "mandatory" registration meeting isnt really mandatory then dont state it as such and make the meeting as quick as possible.
4. make it a point to introduce new members to the organization, welcome them into the community.
5. use a standard measuring board, available to all competitors to alleviate any doubt or questions when a fish is measured.
6. take the time to return calls from the fishermen, specially if there has been an incident or issue
7. consider a rotating schedule of guys that fish the tournament and guys who dont to run things(ie set up weigh in) so that the tournament isnt held up by guys that fished also trying to set up to run the tournament.
8. have someone on a laptop documenting/recording the results and points standings so they can be saved as a jpeg or pdf and uploaded quickly, lots of folks looking for those results

just some suggestions from a new guy

First off, it is kind of funny that you quit fishing CBA as soon as you got disqualified for a short fish. This is a rule across the board. If an Officer weighs in a short they will be disqualified as well, but because you made the rule infraction you want to bad mouth us before even fishing with us for a full year.

Second "Who Cares" about CBA results? Our results have been in every major bass fishing publication in the country. I hate to break it to you but, Unfortunately CFF results came up a little short and didn't make it in to Bassmaster or FLW. I would suggest that you keep your opinions yourself. You are the "new" guy, and in any application in life it takes time to earn people's respect. No.... We don't want your opinion or suggestions. We want you to be quite and fish something else. CFF fits you perfect, Fish That!!!!!

7/2/2019 9:56 AM
actually i fished one more after the short fish incident, it was when one of your guys cussed at me for having my fish at the scales before you were ready that i decided i had enough.

youre making my point for me brilliantly

and youre right the guys that run/fish the CFF's are more personable and respectful

Good and bad in all tournament trails. What I don't like about CBA others do, same for CFF. I suggest being part of the solution and not part of the problem. There are some really good dudes in all trails and there are some Aholes too. Like Beetlespin !

If you don't want to fish CBA then don't. No need to run it down because you have an ax to grind!

youre right, thats why i offered suggestions for improvements rather than just spouting off negative.

i agree, fishermen as a whole are great people, which why i try do to business with them

i made an off hand comment and guys getting so defensive about this, i havent personally attacked anyone, despite some guys taking cheap shots at me.

I want to know who cussed you for coming to get a bag? Here you go again trying to make us look bad. I have never seen anyone get mad at anyone for trying to get a bag Rusty, No one was ever disrespectful to you until you were disrespectful to us, and Disqualification for a rule infraction is not being disrespectful..... My point is if you don't like us fine. Just don't talk and fishing something else.

no im not trying to make YOU look bad, youre doing a fine job of that. my points/observations were about the CBA as a whole not one person but youre taking it personally.

the whole short fish thing keeps coming up(not by me), i learned my lesson, that your tournament trail uses a custom fabricated measuring board that competitors dont have access to until they get to the tanks and so be it. i still came back so you can drop that as your justification.

i didnt ask the guy his name, i just kept my cool, acted like an moral responsible person and waited patiently.

i would have let this thread(or atleast my interactions with it) die with my suggestions but you keep coming.

maybe i struck too close to home and you guys are nervous that other fisherman out there who've been tolerating the maltreatment are going to get fed up as well or see some validity to my statements

Done after this. We are a 501c3 organization. All the money goes back to the fishermen so why are you upset with the membership fee. We usually pay $60000 out in classic. Best payout around and still get crap. We have to do these things to make a good payout and classic, but seriously don't want to keep going back in forth this is dumb. Get what you need to get out about cba and just move on. That cool?

Participation of the CBA is down because of the fact that it is the absolute hammers of Chickamauga Lake! Point blank! Everyone that doesn't fish them are not confident enough in their abilities to compete. If you fish against the best you have a chance to become the best. This is the best of the best tournament trail for this area and the people that won't fish it are just flat out unconfident in their abilities and don't wanna (donate) because it's a waste of money for them. Make all the excuses you want but deep down everyone knows that what I just stated is the fact.

no doubt the guys can catch em! we fish and live on an AWESOME fishery that produces GIANT sacks of fish and im sure that intimidates some but tournament fishing as whole is GROWING. so if a trail is in decline its not likely due to the level of competition.

I would like to see the polygraphs being given more often, especially the night tournaments. There are always a few new people that show up to fish them and the tests deter possible shady people. I think most of us that fish would be ok with dropping a few paid places to pay for the tests a couple times a year.

I agree with this. Guys just wanting to get started don't want to come out to fish a trail known for bringing 30 and sometimes 40lb sacks to the scales when they can go fish the smaller dogfights for smaller entry and the possibility of winning with 18lbs.
You've also got guys that can't compete with the existing dogfight crews so they start their own. That's part of the reason there's 100 different tournaments going on instead of just a handful with bigger crowds. Less competition is a better chance to win

I really like fishing the CBA's. It's made me a better fisherman competing against those guys and I think they're run well. Are there things that could be done better/differently? Sure, but I've got no real complaints If I wasn't out of state working most weeks I'd love to help the guys out to take some load of their backs but I don't have the time to do it.

WELL SAID!!! Could not have said it better. Come on guys! Let's move on from this please. I liked both too. Both had their perks. I appreciated all the guys who put on tournaments. They could be a pain in the rear putting them on and I loved it when I did not have to and someone else had the pain. Now that I am older and losing my hearing it is great to see younger guys like Brent, Aj and Patrick stepping up and carrying the load. No tournament is perfect, the thing you guys have going for you there is you have so many types to choose from. Clubs, CBA, CFF, CATCH, Dog Fights, and the list just keeps on going, Find one or two that fits you and that you like. Count your blessings. Jmax

Tournament fishing has ignited completely no doubt and with the numbers of tournaments and dogfights this day in time people can pick and choose. In picking and choosing they will avoid the hammers! Derek I'm in agreement with polygraph coming back.

No matter what ruler or board a tournament uses if I remember right cba and most other clubs have a courtesy board so you can check it before btinging a short fish to scales. Now this is first year back fishing cba in several years so I'm not exactly sure about this but I know In frost bite tournaments we would rather give you a board to courtesy measure a fish for yourself than have to disqualify someone because that ultimately becomes a know win situation for everyone involved.

7/2/2019 6:08 PM
I was the president when we had those boards cut. We did that because in the past we had guys with short fish offer to get their ruler that showed that particular fish to be legal. But then it was discovered their thin golden rule was bent. So we had boards cut to exact dimensions that were thick enough they could never bend.

If someone got salty with you because you came up early with your fish. You shouldn't take it personal. For years we have tried to lead the way in after weigh-in fish care and release. We usually announce not to bring your fish till they are ready because the fish dont do well in the bags.

I work 50 to 60 hours a week and did not get to fish at all last week before the tx but I fish everyone I can because I enjoy the level of competition. I can't afford to be a pro wanna be and chase major trails around the country but I can fish against the best of the best on this lake month in and out for $120.

It's a great trail, one of the oldest running in the country as matter of fact. Participation has been consistent through out the year and anyone around here knows that the numbers drop once we get to the day/night split months.

It’s so hard to keep everyone happy and after 6 tournaments this season you would think everyone be on board with rules and protocol when it comes to weigh in . The reason we tell everyone to hold there fish is to hopefully preserve the fish in a live well instead of a bag . But some folks struggle with this rule . Dead fish is the number 1 reason for public to complain about tournaments. We do everything we can to keep this to a minimum.

I fished the CBA for over twenty years and enjoyed the hell out of it. I have fished the CFF since its conception love it also. Most people do not realize it but the reason we have the Florida strain of largemouth bass in our lake, is largely because of the CBA and its past officers; personally I would like to thank all the guys who give the time and effort to put both of these two tournament circuits on. If you do not like them, stay home.
