I received my March 2020 Bassmaster Magazine in the mail today. (March 9) It's so thin it only has one side!

I've subscribed to the Magazine for 50 years, and I've always read every word front to back. I always considered Bassmaster Magazine THE authority on techniques to catch bass. In recent times, however, it doesn't have the same appeal to me that it used to have.

Don't get me wrong. It's a first-class outdoor publication. It is nicely laid out and still has the great graphics. Maybe I just don't appreciate all the detailed info about the neo-Elite pro fishermen and their philosophies. The Magazine is getting smaller and good fishing articles seem to becoming fewer.

I really don't want to make a list of issues to rave about. I'm just curious if I'm in the minority of subscribers who have lost interest in the Magazine.

Got mine yesterday too. My wife said “you read that fast”. I said I skimmed through it. It is getting less and less exciting to read for sure.

How many ways can you fish anTxRig? Lol.

After over 40 years, I did not renew my subscription this year, only reason I stayed for years was the mag. It just got where there was just too much advertisements. I did enjoy the hats..!

Got mine today as well but haven't looked at it yet. I aint going to complain though since I get my subscription for free from a well known tackle retailer. Guess that's one of the perks for spending to much dang money with them. hammer

Don't know if its still the same but back when I was a FLW member their magazine was much better than bassmaster at the time, much thicker but the best one was Bass West, great publication for the west coast, unsure how it is today either.

Exactly.... everything is digitally available nowadays. So much info out there I don't see magazines being around more than 5 more years. Similar to newspapers

Most printed magazines are already gone and wouldn't be surprised if its less than 5 years before all become extinct with a few exceptions. Olds like Readers Digest so they may survive a few extra years but both will die off soon enough.

I still enjoy getting Bassmaster, BASS Times and Bass Angler magazines.

Yep, agree with you Mark. It still has it place to read with out a laptop or a bright a$$ screen before I go to bed. To each his own. Great for bathroom also, Lol. Don't tell me it cost to much considering the amount of money we blow on baits that never see the light of day.
