LARRY IS THE BEST FISHERMAN I HAVE EVER FISHED WITH. HIS SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE TOWARD FISHING MAKE BILL DANCE LOOK LIKE AN AMATEUR. BOOGER CAUGHT A BIG FISH LAST NIGHT AT DECKER NIGHT TOURNAMENT. WON 1ST PLACE (AGAIN!!) BUT I HAVE SEEN LARRY CATCH BIGGER.

NICE FISH BOOGER​
LOVE MIKE​

Sweet! Decker seems really good right now. I've had good trips there over the last few weeks although nothing big. Got my boat last spring and I did catch my PB at Decker last spring.

How big?

Yea I guess Bill Dance is ok, every show I've ever seen him do was a glorified walmart commercial. Have y'all ever seen one of his blooper shows. That's the clumsiest guy on the planet. They say every time he does a show he carries two extra identical sets of clothes because he falls of the boat so often, No joke that fact was stated on the show along with about 20 clips of him falling off!

bill dance has not won alot of pro tourneys,not anywhere close to roland martin 19 BASS tourney wins and 9 time BASS angler of the year.dance was only two time angler of year and only won a few tourneys and this was when BASS was only about 60 anglers total.bill couldnt hang with the big boys today.I agree with the fact bill is just a commercial.and most of his bloppers are staged.

I don't know Larry's carrer as a professional fisherman, he may very well have out done Bill but more likely big_b_garza had a few too many after the tourny and was just exagerating a little. ;D

Don't we all exaggerate a little. We"re all fishermens aren't we and it was only a joke towards bogger. Sorry alot of people did't get the joke and got offended.
Don't worry about it, I think everyone except 1 person knows your were kidding. I think everyone here has done it once or so, on here, or other places.
