For the first time in history, all nine Bassmaster Elite events, as well as the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk will feature live television coverage as the Elite Series moves to the FOX Sports platforms beginning in February 2021.

This new multi-year partnership between FOX Sports and Bassmaster allows for more expansive coverage of the tournaments, giving fans an opportunity to follow the action live as the world’s best anglers battle big bass — and each other — on some of America’s most legendary fisheries.

Highlighting the coverage is the iconic Bassmaster Classic on Lake Ray Roberts March 19-21, which will feature three hours of content on the FOX broadcast network and three hours of content on FS1.

Huh didn't see that one coming... so I guess ESPN and BASS divorced? So now you have MLF on CBS before pro golf on the weekends and Bassmaster live on FOX, possibly at the same time. Never would have believed that 10 years ago. I wonder if Zona and Sanders stay.

Why would they not stay?

It's unlikely that there was any bad blood with BASS and ESPN as they've had a long partnership. The most likely scenario here is BASS found better pricing for their TV buy. My guess anyway.

Can’t wait to see all “but the mlf has 5,000,000,000,000,000,000 hours of tv time” guys on here. BASS clearly has the upper hand over the little fish circuit. They just mic dropped the industry.

That kinda sucks. I was hoping they would stay on ESPN and keep the 6 hour Bassmaster LIVE format like they have been doing. I really enjoyed watching that.

If I have to buy a tv package with Fox Sports Southwest to watch this then I'm out as a fan. Been down that road with the Rangers and I just stopped watching them. Sounds like when they are live on Fox sports the live stream on the website will either not exist or be very limited. If Fox would offer an independent streaming package like CBS I would buy that, but all the packages with Fox Sports have a million other channels that I refuse to support.

Huh?? I watch both and enjoy both, but until BASS does a two hour show on each day of coverage of every event, MLF has them covered on the TV side

Fox Sports will have to pay for all that TV time they just paid dearly for so it will be a cable channel for sure.

I just hope they keep the political BS out of it.

If they don't they may be in the same holes that the NBA, NFL, and MLB have found themselves.

His statement has zero to do with who actually will have more air time. For some reason he just hates BPT/MLF

I can assure you that FOX didn't pay BASS. In the world of fishing, the leagues pay for their airtime. Perhaps they bartered or negotiated a better buy but they didn't get paid to air fishing.

I'm not an advocate for either but please explain how BASS has the upper hand.
