    That's the standard line with every new sponsor - "always admired this company - been buying and using their products for years - dreamed of being part of their team - without a doubt the best I have ever used", etc. What goes unspoken is "they dropped me" or "these guys offered me a better deal".

    In 2023 and beyond I am proud to say that I have joined @6thsensefishing we have some special things in the works. Letís go win some blue trophies!
    Wasn't really expecting that, seems like the CJ dropshot plastic just came out. That said, its not like it was some crazy new breakthrough bait. Pretty much your standard dropshot plastic.

    Good Commentary it’s always nice to have some BBCers that are skilled in interpreting the Cliche Laden Language of Professional Bass Fisherpersons so you’ll know exactly what they mean when they say something.

    Been a slow silly season. Not many guys with Big Non-Endemic Sponsors. Toyota has been around for a while.

    I know the anticipation of my announcement for '23 has kept most of you up at night so to ease your anxiety I'm here to say for the '23 season I will continue to use the exact same boat, tackle, rods/reels, electronics, tow vehicles, and wear most of the same clothing I used last year. No spreadsheet updates required...

    When Ranger dropped all the anglers. Then they went to different boats. The only thing missing was " I was held Captive in a Ranger all these years. " " Now with Brand X it is the greatest boat I have ever been in. ". Same with Evinrude Motors.

    Some Ranger guys were not dropped back then.

    Feelings hurt

    In all seriousness though, going to nitro seems a little unusual. I thought most guys running nitros had combo deals with BPS

    None of that shit matters, he'll catch just as many fish as he always did.
