I always thought "caught em jigs" or flipped jigs all day was very sufficient information if it was true, that's what I tell people if they ask me in non-tournament and tournament situations, I even say what trailer and color the jig is,and if I am on a good spot I will still tell them what I am catching on, now most of my fishing is with jigs so I am not giving away much but I still think I am being nice telling them what I caught fish on and think it is more info than deserved.
If you or I fish a tournament, pay our entry and get beat, I do not feel we are entitled to know exactly where, when, how, why the winner caught fish. It is nice when they tell you the bait, and even nicer when they tell you what type of structure or cover but it is definitely should not expected.
Someone worked hard spent gas, time etc it is their win and they caught the fish. It is their decision and they should not be judged harshly if they choose not to say much.
Being tight lipped is a fishing tradition and I respect if someone does not want to say what is going on, how they are catching them.
Now it is certainly really cool that you guys are filming and showing everything with little delay(not releasing every video until the end of the season) and I have watched them all with a lot of enthusiasm.
I also don't think your giving up that much of an edge by posting these videos. It's the old deal of you can fish the same bait in the same spot from the same angle and one person is going to catch more than the other guy.Give the other guy the gps, detailed instructions of the spot on the spot and he still will catch less. Although that doesn't mean your not teaching people, that will duplicate this on another spot/lake/river and tweak the baits.
Having said all that real good stuff guys keep it coming.
