So in a crappie or walleye tournament with a $10k + purse (happens every
weekend), it would or would not be worth $10 a bait to gain an advantage
over your competitors?

I guess that's what I'm getting at... I personally know people who would pay
this much even _without_ chances of winning a tournament, if it were to
guarantee they'd have access to catching more and larger fish...

Or in the option of not catching fish... _To_ catch fish, as with saugeye or
walleye in inland lakes of Ohio which are generally horribly turbid.... Drop
jigging and long line spinning doesn't loose many minners.... And $200 to
get a limit of walleye in 2 hours and not have to pay for a charter to get
out on Lake Erie...?? What a deal!!! I would have had to pay $400 or

There's a lot of people who'd pay that. You might be suprised... But
they're out there. And I don't think their numbers are all that small.
