\r\n Seems like a lot of BS excuses from the MSSA. "Had a bad year in 2017" amongst others.\r\n

    \r\n No excuse for that. The money had to be used for something else. Not good. This just hurts the good folks at the chapter level......... Gary\r\n

    \r\n If you look at Dave Smith\'s MSSA post on TF from the Fall 2 years ago he said, Plenty time left to enter the Fall Classic. Great weather for the weekend. My post was Great weather Friday and Saturday at noon it\'s blowing 35+. No fish is worth dying for. Well 3 guys died. Tournament should have been cancelled as it was well predicted. I\'m not blaming MSSA for the deaths as each fisherman should know when to get off the water, but....... The following year MSSA did cancel the last day of the Fall tournament due to weather.........

    \r\n WOW one has to wonder if anything illegal happened! Maybe there is a need to break out the polygraphs for event organizers.
    \r\n
    \r\nThere is plenty of incentive to cheat and steal with a lot of $$ on the table when rec fishing is _commercialized_ by big $ tournaments.
    \r\n
    \r\nA good example is the White Marlin tournament results in recent years.

    \r\n I thought all prize money was guaranteed. Is it being said that no one has been paid for any of the tourneys? If that is the case the state should revoke their permits to hold tournaments until those participants are paid. How much money are we talking? I’d imagine it’s way up there. I sure hope it gets resolved and the winners are compensated.\r\n

    \r\n This is just obsurd. The winner(s) should be paid immediately barring any legal issues. Who in the hell would even be interested in fishing a tournament that you can\'t collect your "guaranteed" prize money in if you win?
    \nSounds like the financing officers and/or some of the top members in the MSSA need to be challenged.\r\n

    My son fishes all over the south in Bass tournaments and they get paid that day ,protonto after the tournament before they leave the premises. This should be a requirement from now on for anyone considering entering a tournament.\r\n

    No one says whether only the Fall, or all tournaments were disputed. No one says what was disputed, or how a dispute could not be settled immediately. I won a couple prizes in the 1980\'s and 90\'s. Each time the prize money was distributed at a post tournament get together the weekend directly after the final day of the tournament. The W-2\'s were mailed in early January. All entry fees and many other costs are paid by us at the time of the tournament. Skip, sorry, but if "settling a dispute" and filling out W-2\'s are that time consuming for current tournament operators, they should be replaced.
    \n
    \nPersonally, just a feeling, but the 2010 - 18 entry fees, deposits + documentation + all those Calcutta fees; provide to much opportunity to mess with things. As someone else said, the grand prizes are too big now to keep out sophisticated attempts at manipulation.
    \n
    \nFor these reasons I\'ve passed on the last 10 years of Spring tournaments.
    \n
    \nOther previous comments suggesting the State administer the tournament money collection and distribution are probably the solution.

    \r\nSaw this coming a mile away on the first page when I read 27sailfish spoke to the guy who claimed "The delay was caused by a dispute...."
    \r\n
    \r\nThen....that text.....which is a flat out different story. Also, transferring money around takes at most 2-3 business day.
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\nI recently stepped off of a board at the end of my 1st term.....I wasn\'t comfortable with the Treasurer and the complete lack of transparency. We were given dollar amounts verbally at meetings, but never saw statements. Whenever I asked a question about a specific bill, the Treasurer\'s response was always "I don\'t have that with me, I\'d have to look it up." Then of course at the next meeting, it was never addressed. Treasurer might be 100% on the up and up, but I can\'t see it.....rules aren\'t followed......procedures are disregarded.....everyone else just bows down to the Treasurer because she\'s done it forever. I wasn\'t comfortable with it and didn\'t want my name associated with it.
    \r\n
    \r\nIt\'s amazing how RAMPANT these rip offs are, but yet they still happen ALL THE TIME. Lack of controls. Lack of controls. Lack of controls.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhat amazes me is that these people actually must think they\'ll get away with it. In this day of computers....online statements for everything....instant access to almost anything. It takes a special kind of thief to have the balls and do it anyway. These sick F\'s have no problem looking people dead in the eye and making up ridiculously elaborate stories.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen push comes to shove, imo, the board is ultimately responsible.\r\n

    \r\n THE WORD IS MR SMITH IS ON A CRUISE RIGHT NOW BUT the mssa CAN\'T Payout. Some checks where sent out and THESE Checks bounced and unacceptable.
    \nAlso the word is the protest was handled privately without the tournament committee being involved?What is the purpose of a tournament committee If they don\'t handle important business and issues with Tournaments? The protest was not handled properly. The mssa is currently at the boat show and selling raffle tickets like crazy to pay winnings it appears. The current guys couldn\'t run a snow ball stand properly!To bad because in years past they where a good organization\r\n

    \r\n I hear you Skip. It can be a tough call but it is not about making captains happy or unhappy. It is about keeping captains safe. Two years ago the weather was predicted solidly to be 35 mph wind by noon that Saturday. The prediction was dead on to the minute and that is when the tournament should have been canceled. In my opinion the event organizers are responsible for overall safety. Others might feel different and that\'s okay. I am not saying that they should make sure everyone\'s boat is safe. Once again money makes people do things that they shouldn\'t do.......... Gary\r\n

    \r\n MSSA is all about the money. Y has the money for the sept flounder tournament not been paid. That is robbery. Its bad enough they only pay 50%. I refuse to fish or join anything related to the MSSA. Its all about the money. Just look at the tournament they squeezed in late summer . No captain of year points because Dave\'s buddies boats were in OC... now how is that fair? I will say it again...ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY!!!..When Rich Ran The MSSA he actually gave a shit. He would be rolling in his grave.\r\n

    \r\n Gary / others - I attend some of the MSSA committee meetings.
    \n
    \nWeather / safety in tournaments has been brought up. The first time MSSA cancelled a fishing day - some captains bitched and complained. MSSA does not cancel and people bitch / complain. No win situation.
    \n
    \nWhen I fished the tournaments in early 2000\'s - we had some really rough days. When I won the fall tournament ( I think 2003 ) - it was border line. North at 20-25 with 30 gusts. I had a tough crew ( my father and one other seasoned angler ) - along with a good rough water boat. Some MSSA captains complained that tournament should have been cancelled - others like me fished it.
    \n
    \nMSSA did listen to complaints and made tournament longer - idea was to hopefully get good weather day (s) to allow all boats a chance to fish.
    \n
    \nThe bay might be fishable off Sandy Point but deadly off Point Look Out. It all boils down to what the captain thinks his boat / crew can handle.
    \n
    \nWeather reports are only prediction. Think we have all taken water over the bow on " 5-10 knot " days or chanced a small craft warning and had flat seas.\r\n

    \r\n No doubt Gary. I would not have fished that day. We launched at Breezy at 5:30 - still dark and raining with high winds.
    \n
    \nI told my dad and Tom - I\'ll go out in the dark , I\'ll go out when rough , I\'ll go out when raining - but not in dark when rough and raining.
    \n
    \nWe lost an hour of fishing time - waiting until 7 am when we could see. It was ugly scene out of Breezy Point - honest 3 footers with a lot of white caps. Few lumpers mixed in.
    \n
    \nWe figured some boats would not fish , some likely quit early - this gave us an advantage.
    \n
    \nWe fished hard right up to lines out - racing back on a hard course to make weigh in time by 5 minutes - whew.
    \n
    \nCrazy thing - we had landed the 1st place fish about 8:30 - shortly after starting to troll.\r\n

    \r\n PONZI- SCAM!! someone else needs to start a tourney. How hard is it to pay with PayPay/Venmo. I really doubt they were waiting for SS forms to be filled out. Dave-doesn\'t even have the balls to speak out or at least shed some light on this to the MSSA Chapters. I haven\'t fished this tourney in over 10 years and never would again. People only fish tourneys for the competition/bragging rights/money. Hell I only fish the small ones because they are more fun and people actually party together afterwards at weigh in.\r\n

    \r\n Ahh they let the superdink back. In that case someone call, blakesdad 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 ..,, chumbucket aka... well nevermind, evildick .... , and Burgess back and we can restore some spirited convos. Is Brandon anywhere to be found now-a-days and did he pass on the banned list? If not we may have a chance at making TF great again lol.
    \r\n
    \r\nAs far as this thread goes, does anyone know if this really happened or are we just piggy backing on a thread that posed speculation. Not doubting on the OP but how far does this really go? Just curious if the statements made are verified fact or not. If so that\'s a shame but it would be good to remember lots of organizations go through down turns. As a general statement I\'m not a member of MSSA nor do I know any leaders in the organization so I don\'t have a dog in this fight. Seems like they have some good qualities I\'m just surprised legal counsel hasn\'t reached out to TF or made an official statement here. What\'s up with that?

    \r\n Good afternoon boys and girls.
    \r\nI have been reading post on this site for several years. lots of great info.
    \r\nFirst time for me to post a response.
    \r\nI am a former MSSA member. I chose not to renew my membership for several reason.
    \r\nAnyway that is besides the point i\'m getting ready to make.
    \r\nIn Sept. I fished the flounder tournament held in OC. I was not the Capt of the boat but we did weigh in the 2nd place flounder.
    \r\nMy all time bucket list 10.1 lb BEAST. As of today the check is still in the mail. (I just got off the phone with the Capt)
    \r\n4 plus months is unacceptable. Time for a independent audit of the books in my opinion.
    \r\nThis type of action is the reason the membership is suffering.

    \r\n I heard firsthand the details of the Fall protest and will never join MSSA or participate in its tournaments. It is now a sht show. Waaaay too much \'good old boy\' instead of following the letter and intent of the rules. The board needs to be fired for mismanagement.\r\n

    \r\n To all - I ask a favor / few days patience.
    \n
    \nEvery issue brought forth will be addressed on Tuesday evening - Feb. 6th - at MSSA normal scheduled committee meeting. Payment of tournament winners is on top of agenda. There is a lot of rumors right now - I hate seeing MSSA bashed - although I agree with some of it.
    \n
    \nMSSA president - Frank Holden and committee will get everything straight.\r\n
