May Be,,, but that practice doesn't start till BassFest is Over and there is a few other FLW guys in BassFest and After hearing him and talking with him at the Classic this year I don't think it will be long before he makes the Swap over to BASS like the others..

I was wondering the same thing, but I bet he makes the switch soon, he seems to be good buddies with several of the BASS anglers.

There wasn't but 13 Open guys that got the invite and some of them are well below Jacob in points.. So that can't be it

Where have you seen that 30 was invited?? Also how do they pick that 30 if so,,, because there are guys fishing it well below Jacob in points so the Top 10 in each Open division idea don't work.
