My Thoughts on the PAA

The PAA kicked off their 2010 season today at Lake Cherokee in Tennessee.  The idea of having a Pro Anglers Association has been great and it includes several top Elite Series and FLW Tour Pros fishing the series.  The pros seem to be happy as they have another few events to fish and the sponsors seem to be noticing the series.  Bass Pro Shops, Nitro, Mercury, E21, Trokar and others have joined as sponsors.  Even with the attention, I still feel like the circuit is missing something and needs to increase the visability.  I love the concept and support them 100% but I feel like they need some help getting the word out to the casual bass fisherman out there.  Just my opinion.  Do you follow the PAA like you follow the Elites and FLW Tour?  I'd like to know what you think.

Here are the Top 10 after Day 1: 
1. (tie) Bradley Hallman, Norman, Okla., 5 fish, 15.57 pounds
