Major League Fishing Announces Additional Details of 2019 Expansion
TULSA, Okla. (Sept. 21, 2018) – After the initial announcement of the Major League Fishing (MLF) Bass Pro Tour last week, league officials today announced additional details of the tour, including industry-leading media exposure with more than 850 hours of television coverage and 350 hours of live streaming, angler leadership in the series, and payouts of nearly $10 million that have never before been seen in the professional bass fishing industry.
“Our league and sponsor partners have made a significant investment to make sure that the decision to fish with Major League Fishing in 2019 was an easy one for anglers,” Jim Wilburn, president and CEO of MLF, said. “With these payout amounts combined with our more than 850 hours of television programming across six networks and support for anglers at every level of the business, we believe our angler-centric business model is one that will resonate with anglers and sponsors.”
MLF and PBTAA co-founder Boyd Duckett has been instrumental in guiding the development of the new league expansions that he says will put anglers in control of their own destiny and sets a precedent for the sport of fishing that will benefit generations to come. (Click to enlarge/download)
