Rosters: Who's fishing where

With the release of the 2019 FLW Tour roster earlier this week, it's fair to say most of the dust has settled after a tumultuous offseason that saw more angler movement than ever before, thanks in large part to the introduction of Major League Fishing's Bass Pro Tour, which filled its 80-man roster mostly with names from the Bassmaster Elite Series and a few from the FLW Tour.

As a result, the Elite Series trimmed its roster size to 75 and will welcome a number of new faces who moved over from the FLW Tour. Finally, the FLW Tour announced it'll have a 170-boat field to start 2019 the first season without co-anglers including a rookie class that features 34 newcomers. That's a total of 325 anglers divided across three organizations.

For future reference and to help BassFans understand who went were or who stayed put, below are the 2019 angler rosters for the three major circuits (names listed alphabetically):
