I prefer FLW over BASS but not for their productions. I really don't watch either on tv regularly. I do watch everything I can when researching a new lake or a paticular season that I'm practicing for a tournament for.
Over the past 3 years I have fished FLW events, first as a coangler then as a boater, I have had the opportunity to fish tournaments from the BFL one day tournaments to the Costa 3 day events and even was fortunate enough t fish a Tour event.
I can tell you first hand that you won't find any better people that the people that run FLW.
I have met many new friends over the past 3 years and look forward to each event.
Although I have not fished any BASS events I have talked with several friends that have and they all say that they feel like FLW does more for and cares for their anglers better than BASS.
With that being said, I am biased because of my experience with FLW and lack of with BASS. I'm sure sooner or later I will have an opportunity to fish a BASS tournament and hope my experience is close to what FLW has been for me.
