FLW Tour loses 4; keeps Dudley

David Dudley is fishing the FLW Tour in 2019.

He had an invite to join the Bassmaster Elite Series. He turned it down.

There has been much speculation as to how B.A.S.S. would fill out its Elite Series roster which is far short of the projected 80-angler field upon which the exciting new entry fees and payout structures were based.

It would appear that B.A.S.S. has tried to siphon a few top pros from the FLW Tour.

Jeff Gustafson and Clark Wendlandt have accepted invites to fish the Elite Series next year instead of the FLW Tour where they competed this season.

And the Bass Pro Tour just took another bite out of FLW as well. They have enlisted the services of Jeff Sprague and Anthony Gagliardi – two FLW Tour veterans.

The upheaval continues. Stay tuned.
