The thought of having one livewell between two of ya is kinda cool  except for the fact that you'd better be within 50 yards of each other....if I'm fishing a rock pile & it's producing & my partner is fishing down the lake & he has a simular situation someone's gonna be making the trips ,the thought of having to reach my partner every fish whether it's his or mine.....&/or he has the live well,or i do doesn't sound all that appealing ,could be doing more rowing than fishing,allthough I do like the team tourneys for the same reasons everyone else has that likes them & I think one a season is good,just the way it is....

Chris the point of having one well is to keep partners close. That was a complaint, we are supposed to be team partners but nobody fishes with their teammate. I was forced to do this on Mendo cause my teammate did not bring a well. We fished within casting distance all day and were able to talk strategy and BS. I think that is what the club is about, sure it's great to qualify for the TOC, I have done it both years I have fished with the club and plan on making it again when I win on clearlake next month but the reason this club is cool is because it's a way for new anglers to meet other anglers. It's a cheap way to get into tournament fishing and to learn about the sport. Instead of being focused on winning a new boat and thousands of dollars like most tournament trails, when I joined this club I saw it as a way to make new friends and see what I could
learn from others. It seems like we are focusing less on getting new people involved and more on how I can win a few dollars... It's just my opinion but I think we need to remember what this club is all about and focus less on how to shut people out...

Ahhh, AC, yeah that was a nice tournement.. I WAS able to see what you were doing all day... and it was nice to have someone to talk with, without being encroaching on them as would have been in other tournements.... It would have been nice to catch a keeper to help our team, but it was nice none-the-less ...

Well.....I suppose I should pay closer attention to the threads I post on when I chime in with my 2 cents...LOL....I understand where you're coming from A.C. as I joined the club for the same reasons but still have mixed feelings about the idea myself and thats not because I'm trying to get rich (not that you were directing that at me personally),I hope that doesn't put me in the "shutting out new members" catagory because that is definetly not my feeling or intent....as Chris L. said...I will still compete,support the club & new members what ever is voted on,if it is voted in I personally will embrace the new change for its positive reasons of why...

I think having fishing close together with your teammate sound cool and fun.  I know the guys who fish the last FPT tied their boats together and put a trolling motor on the back.  They wanted to fish it like true team event.  I don't know about tying the boats together but fishing with in arms length is doable.  Only problem i see is if one partner decides it time to take off and the other partner wants to stay.  Pretty much we would have to run it like the Federation. One person in front of the boat for half day and then the other person lead.  This way if one person makes the decision to leave a spot there wont be a problem.

I've fished 2 separate team tournaments this year at which my partners and I had only used 1 livewell.
Pros:
-Less weight between a team to lug
-1 less livewell means more space for other things.

Cons:

-There really aren't any cons that i can think of besides if both anglers on the team have "one of those days", example randy kidd @ whites w/ 2 x 8+ pounders and dave sternitzke @ clear lake 2 x 8+ pounders, then the fish wouldn't fit and a backup well would be necessary.  

Those tournaments were the 2 most authentic team tournaments I have ever fished in, but not because we used 1 well.  What made them different was the fact that we linked our kickboats and stayed attached the entire tournament.  Our movements had to be communicated and often in unison of eachothers, we netted eachothers fish, each one of us relied on the other more so than themself.

I highly reccomend the idea to anybody and would be more than happy to offer suggestions on how to fish from a "Mega Kickboat".

The idea of SCBBBC using 1 livewell for team tournaments sounds like a good way to force teams to fish close to eachother, but wouldn't be a good idea.  It wouldn't be a good idea because a Kickboat/kickboat team would have an advantage over a Kickboat/float tube team.  The cull before weigh-in 5 fish limit is very fun and doesn't need to be refined.

I like the idea of 2 team tournaments because IMO they are more strategically challenging and it can be nice to team up with new people.  I don't think that they would impact ones AOY or TOC potential.  For AOY it would make things more interesting by adding a new element which everyone has to face.  Regarding qualifying for TOC and team tournaments, there are already 2 "throwouts" allowed so if having a teammate is a weakness, allot your throwouts for the 2 team tournaments.  The club fishes 12 days of regular season tournaments, a 10 (indvidual tournament days) to 12  (-2 team tournament days from total), 10 to 12 ratio, is significant enough to determine the outcome of overall points, especially given 2 throwouts for TOC.  Who knows, your partner may even stick a couple of toads. In the end we're all fishing together anyways.

I agree with Carson. I think to truly embrace the team tournament format, anglers should fish within close proximity of each other. My favorite scbbbc tournament memory had to have been when Wendy and I fished a Delta team together. Keying in on what each of us were doing, constant communication and teamwork lead us to the win. Then again, the same success can be said about spreading out and covering more water individually. Are there any talks about doing pick your partner team tournaments like we did a few years back?

That was the way it was in "the old days".You were able to use the throwouts for angler of the year but the that got voted out several years back. Now you could only use throwouts to get in the TOC. Dave thats still my favorite tourney(that I didnt win,lol)when you and Wendy won at the delta, awesome shiat.
