A comment titled: Sponsor in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Not a chance on the sponsorship. I can hardly afford me to do fish them. Not fishing Ms has cut down my bank roll. Here's the deal. Nobody has ever seen anyone win as consistently as you are catch big fish pretty much whenever you want to in a body of water that isn't known for big fish. Nobody knows if you cheat, there is no proof, only whispers. It's a lot of un needed drama. I can't tell you how to handle it. You can be cocky or you can be humble with wins. At this point I don't think if it matters. You can let it roll as is or try to prove you aren't. Ball is in your court. People could put their money where their doubts are and pay for a polygraph. Random so if you pass there is no doubts you took something to alter your pulse. No idea how to go about it or what it cost. Just an idea. If the money can't be raised then everybody shuts up. If you pass then their should be a line of people to apologize.

A comment titled: Never accused in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Read back thru. Never said u did. Just lot of baggage. I also said everyone I fish with wants you to be that good. You did call me a has been tho. In a club I'm afraid people would stay away. I have respect for anyone that works hard to be great. Fishing is the one thing that gets me thru bad days next to my wife. I want you to be THAT good. As I also said you kicked my many a time. We need to put all this crap to rest and get back to good draws on the river and everywhere else. You know I am near the top most days wherever I fish. Here, Ms or Natchez. Nobody should have to prove they aren't cheating. I have been accussed of it before, mostly it's when I go to other peoples home water and win. If you want to partner up and fish local teams then we will for a while. Not forever. If you think I'm doing this because I want to win your wrong. I can do that by myself. You catch them I'll sing your praise. You don't then you don't. I repeat. Most of what is said by everyone is 'I hope he is that good'. People want you to and it sucks you need to prove it. And no I'm not taking my boat up the Tangi very far past Lee's.

A comment titled: Rush in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Trust me Kyle. Winning five figures in a 100 boat field is a bigger rush. Going 2 hours and winning $2,000 in a 75 boat field when half call it their home lake is a bigger rush. Blasting off in a 140+ boat field for 10k when u think u have an honest chance at it is a bigger rush. Once you feel that feeling fruit jars want even be a enough to raise your pulse. It's like taking your wife bream fishing.

A comment titled: Fancy Boat in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Patrick Engerran. Sorry Kyle, I was mistaken you knew my name, which you probably did from the duel power pole referance. I think I'm the only one with them. Fancy boat? Thanks. I worked long and hard far it. Remember I just got it. Yours was bigger till Feb Lol!! Can't seem to catch fish? I have my days, good and bad. I do generally seem to be around the top. Sometimes at it sometimes not. That's bass fishing. Sure, we could partner up in my fancy boat anytime u want. I'm quite proud of it. Work 55 to 60 and on call 24/7 to get it after many years of dreaming. You name the team tourny and we will do it. Although from your comments about can't seem to ever catch fish I gather you will be at a disadvantage with me as your partner?

A comment titled: Travel in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Bass Master I'm not talking fishing the Bend or Rayborn in $1000 entry deals. The Basin is only a few more miles for us then the Pearl. As far as money Kyle has kicked my butt enough to prove he is better than me and I have made money over there in teams and have done respectable in the singles. I only started fishing that area this year. Only started on the Northshore 2 years ago. If I can do respectable then Kyle being a better fisherman than me will make money for his family and only be gone another hour and a half. It ain't gambling when you good. I know he's on the river must ever Fri and Sat or somewhere fishing. I respect hard work because I too put in every chance I can get to fish and learn. Mist weeks that is only one day a week two if I'm lucky so rain, shine snow or anything else I'm going.

A comment titled: Not Hiding in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

My screen name says who I am. Frogman is right. I think numbers have dropped on the river tournies. Right or wrong if Kyle was in a club people would stay away. There is already talk of next year clubs going to dues and members being voted in. Some would still join and fish it sure but it wouldn't be a strong club or draw good. Too much baggage. Some will agree some won't. 'NO'

June 30, 2014 at 5:46pm
A comment titled: Either Way in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Brfrogman is right. Nobody has caught him cheating. What he has done in this area has never been done before, not just the winning streak but the big fish he can catch seemly on demand when he needs to. Streaks end in time or as pintail said he really 'yes people he really is THAT good'. I know everyone hopes it is on the up and up and wants him to be that good. Very few people I fished against or with mind getting an a$$ kicking by a good stick. If he is cheating then in time they all get caught. When people are that good they get tired of the small stuff, why fish for $100 when you can fish for $1,000 or $10,000. The Basin isn't that much of a longer drive than the Pearl is so that isn't a factor. We are lucky enough to live in a tournament rich region with good money to win by a good fisherman. When he steps up to bigger stuff and has success and passes a couple polygraphs or either he dosen't do good because he really isn't that good. Either way it will work itself out in time. I just hope that this doesn't bring out cheaters who think it is the way to win. Tournaments are about who is the best that day and honesty is the key to it. I could never cheat to win anything and look myself in the mirror or look anyone in the eye knowing that cheating is the only way I could win. We all can only hope everyone else that fishes against us feels the same.

A comment titled: Live Wells in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Yes having a reasonable size sack of fish in live wells during summer may be tough, everyone has fish die from time to time including me. If the fish was stressed for some reason or not healthy they would be more prone to die (swallowed hook, long fight or other things). I think Kyle has a 20 ft boat so keeping 15 lbs of healthy fish alive in that size boat shouldn't be tough. There are lots of articles and videos about fish care out there as well as additives for use in calming and treating injured fish, just got to take the time to learn about it. One big thing that hardly anyone does is clean them out once in awhile, fish release a lot of toxins and waste during a day in a livewell. I've lost a lot of money by a couple ozs, half a lb will kill you. Then again thinking back most of Kyle's wins have been by pounds, not ozs so none of that matters.

A comment titled: weigh in in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

redshad said gills were still barely moving so in theory they were alive for penalty purpose. If you poke 'em and gills move they alive. After they in water they may float belly up and I think that is why he said dead. Kyle you are right, you are in everyones head and your name is becoming known far and wide. When you start fishing bigger trails I'm sure you will have the same success. Getting into it at such an early age and having this success is just a stepping stone. Go regional then go bigger once you have gotten the same success. No reason to be satisfied with winning $100 pots when you clearly have the skills to figure them out anywhere. Win one or even place in top 3 and you can fund the next 2 or 3. As the saying goes 'go big or go home' I'm sure I'll be seeing you on the Media and Bass N Bucks trails soon.

June 30, 2014 at 1:24pm
A comment titled: Weigh in in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Maybe I'm confused but I think oldbass is talking about the tournament at the top of the thread. redshad was the director for that one. I can understand the confusion tho. Kyle has won so many who can keep track? Just a thought, does anyone feel this is going to or is now keeping anyone from fishing the tournaments on the Northshore?

June 30, 2014 at 11:57am
A comment titled: Rider in response to a report titled: June 21 Manchac Results

Yes he did finish 3rd I think with a rider. I could be mistaken but that was the 1st one he did not win in 6 months and the only one he did not have a limit in also. That was with a Hail Mary fish at ramp in last 10 mins. Like everyone else I'm just stating this as I remember. I think he won next couple after that tho. It must be ssumed he is legit unless proven otherwise. This 23 year old phenom also is a big bass specialist. The bigger the tournament the bigger the bass it seems. I'm sure he's planning on stepping it up in the future to fishing Media and Bass an Bucks as his next stepping stone. With the ablity he has shown to catch limits when the rest only have 2 or 3 fish and his skill at getting that key big bite under pressure he could fund the entire season dues on his 1st tournament. By his 2nd he'd be making money. Why win $100 when you can win $1,200? He has prob caught more bass over 4 lbs in tournaments then the rest of us combined the last 2 years. All I can say to his success is 'Wow!!! Unbelievable'.
