I would be interested to see a "mid-season" report to see how all three major fishing platforms (MLF, BASS, FLW) are comparing. I casually watch FLW, I watch all B.A.S.S. Live events I can, and I haven't tuned into anything MLF-related this year. Honestly, I haven't heard anything about MLF at all. Is it succeeding? I know how reliant they are on sponsors and if the sponsors aren't seeing the numbers they like, I don't think the BPT will last.
Judging by social media followings, B.A.S.S. is still the most popular format. Also, recently MLF posted something about how their anglers winnings compared to the winnings of the anglers in the other organizations. They quickly redacted the post because it was so poorly received. I think MLF alienates fans while B.A.S.S. and FLW embrace fans and more importantly, they embrace aspiring anglers. Love to hear some thoughts on this.
