Anyone here fish the RCL circuit? Either the Tour or the League.

I fished the league last year as a co angler and will fish it this year as an angler. Last year was the first year of the RCL Walleye League Tournaments. They are well run by the same tournament director as the Tour.
Only fished two out of the three because the Saginaw Bay tournament was the same weekend as the BFL Grand River Tournament. I requested that they not overlap these two circuits as alot of Michigan anglers would fish both if they could. Low and behold they listened and I will be fishing both circuits this year.
Gotta love the FLW man.

THEY LISTEN TO THE ANGLERS!

Thanks Madwags. I may enter 1 or 2 this year on the amatuer side. Just for fun and to cure my addiction to competition in the (bass) off-season. You also never now what you may be learn and be able to apply to tournaments in general.

The first thing you will learn is that it can be colder than a well diggers butt in Montana
on the Detroit River in April. Dress in layers, including gloves, and be prepared to jig all day. It reminds me of ice fishing from your boat. You can talk to the boats next to you without raising your voice.

As a co angler you will bring NO TACKLE whatsoever. Just show up. The angler supplies everything. Please tip him.


It really is a great time and I am sure you will enjoy catching those giant walleye,"Logs" as apposed to "Toads".

Wow,...sounds fun!! (Not the freezin' part,...but the showin' up with no tackle part!!
)

It is amazing how the "walleye guys" can fish right next to each other while jigging and carry on a civil conversation with the boat right next to them.....yet, in a bass tournament, if another boat even launches at the clinton rvr while you're fishing the Sni,..."HE's TOO CLOSE!!!!...
crax me up!!

C'mon spring!!!!

The cold is no problem. I've been through some nasty &%$# on the bass circuits. The gaul force winds and cold of Saginaw last year (the plaque on my wall is still dripping wet
), a snow blizzard at Wawassee a fews years back, etc. I've got the full gear.

The co-angler format is perfectly suited for someone like me. I have no intentions of starting a walleye tournament carreer. My time and efforts are mainly devoted to bass tournies. The format gives me the opportunity to get out and stretch my legs with little upfront work on my part. But I also now how to handle a stick and a tournie veteran. So what I lack in walleye knowlegde I can make up for in other areas. Just point me in the right direction
. Sharing the costs is of course a must.

Just a quickie note. I called up this morning registration begins on the 19th. I'm going to sign up for the D-River tournie this year.

Great news Alex! I hope I draw you as we will have alot of fun and catch some nice logs. The Detroit River Tournament is anyones to win and the ride to the fish will take all of 3 minutes.


As for walleye anglers being less uptight than bass anglers, I don't know about that. I think you have some in every crowd.


One thing for sure is that the walleye tournament is less of a boat race than a bass tournament.


I never could understand what everyones hurry was. The fish don't wake up until 10am anyways.
