What would you do if you had fished 20 plus king tournaments and not finished in the money at all?? who all would throw in the towel? i have an old friend that has done this and still plans to go to nationals this year... would you say crazy or hasmore money than sence????.

If I ever considerd Tournament King Mackerel fishing at all, I would opt for immolation instead.

You guys are tough today.. I do have one question tho -- How can he go to the nationals if he hasn't placed in div. tournaments? I know that some are really easy to get enough points in, but ya still have to place......don't ya?

I think the whole SKA thing is way overrated anyway but to go to all of those events and not win any money, what the hell is the point other than potential slipped discs later on in life from beating the sht out of your body?

I guess he does it because he likes to fish them... I am not a tournament fisherman but I used to do about 4 tourneys a year... It took me about 12 tourneys to win some money. Then I hit for about 20K, so it just all depends.. I fish maybe one or two a year now, strictly local stuff because I have done pretty well in my local waters.

The one thing I dont do is firewall my engines and beat the mess out of my boat like some of those SKA guys do. I dont care how much maintenance they do I would never buy a used boat that was a regular on the tournament trail...
