Sat/ stood around after the tourny, enjoying some good grub and brews, and got chatting to several people that were there that did not fish, but came to "check it out", a couple that had "never seen fish so big",Texans of course and some that knew what was going on. The 2 1/2 hour wait to try and figure out if we were even close in weight, got us thinking... hmmmm.
How cool would it be to have an outdoor digital display board of the scale that was weighing in fish??
Even a 1 foot, electronic board up on the wall by the "fish weighing station" sign. It would be MUCH more interesting than standing around and waiting in silence not knowing what the fish being weighed were at all. Could be a great source of entertainment and draw in a little more interest at the after party. Other than walking the weigh in line and looking at the fish, one does really not have a clue to the size of fish being weighed.
For those that did not have any fish weighed, you go up to the weigh station wait in line, go into the building and have your fish weighed, you do not get to see the weight, only what the scale master says is what you have to go by. How much more fun would it be to be able to see this weight, weather in line or while standing around outside? I think it would be a great source of entertainment and add a lot of fun to the great tounament.
Meant to just mention this to Cliffhanger, but since so many others fished the derby, thought i would just bring this suggestion up for comment.
Thanks again HCOC for another fun filled day.
