I was wondering what you guys think about ESPN selling BASS

Example for me would be make AOY pay at least the same as the Classic.

I would like to see a longer season instead of a short 4 month season and spread the tournaments out to cover all regions instead of just the south.  Also I think I would like to the AOY decided on a full season instead of a short 1 week chase, even though it has paid out for KVD.  If they want to fish a 8 event year plus 2 short events just make the season 10 events and crown the AOY then.

Yeah it’d be neat to see them fish in some of the local waters that we’ve fished around where we live.  smile  We’ll see if that will ever happen.

Lol I just posted this on the other topic but whatever. I want to see some tournaments closer to IL and the rest of the midwest. And since i’m still under 18, I think they should have more Jr. Bassmaster tournaments, I really need to enter a tournament one of these days….

I understand why you want the Classic moved back to the end of the year. I used to think is was nuts having in so early in the year, but now I think its alright. I know a lot of times the fishing is a lot slower, but I like having the Classic kick off the season. One only thing I don’t like about it is the wait between the end of the Classic, and the start of the regular season.

Hope you catch your biggest bass ever on your next fishing trip.

If I was the new BASS creative guy…

I would start a competition with Japan…our top 5 versus their top 5…alternating countries each year.
I would have an All Star event similar to other major sports. Complete with casting contests and the like.
I would help start “crews” to help making logistics easier for the anglers to seed the thought of similar infrastructure other outdoor sports (nascar, motocross…)
I would go out of my way to link the fun/local tournament angler with the big league.
I would go out of my way to get KVD or Skeete on a non-endemic commercial that played on major networks. House-hold-names.
I would start a rivalry. I don’t care if it’s Old vs Young. North vs South. Slow vs Fast.
I would leverage walleye and red fisherman series. Anglers unite.
I would thank Alabama for everything…but not hold a majority of major events there.
I would head west young man. Head west every year.
I would fish a few more northern lakes. Seriously?!

Wow Great ideas
I also like the Japan idea and yes we need more SOUTH West events and Midwest (no more than 1 Cali events…Lake Powell?)
Funny some ideas seem to be from a NASCAR promotion play book….LOL
