This today was THE MOST BORING FISHING I’ve ever tried to watch
I logged in to live 3 times and turned it off....like watching paint dry. I get it...it was tough, but some of the leaders just quit?
Still don’t get the format and the weight resets....looks like Thrift was playing golf today and caught 5lbs from a golf cart or a pier???

Yes, I’m biased, but Palestine would have been much better this week for bigs....but MLF got a case of “Parakeet balls” and moved it...AGAIN?

With all the infrastructure damage in the state MLF would have been ripped a new one if they still tried to hold the event in TX

You can thank the brilliant minds that run MLF for the lack of excitement or motivation by the top anglers. Those in the top 10-15 after day one had absolutely no incentive to fish, none whatsoever, because all their hard work was going to be stripped away. So why try?... 1st or 20th was going to be deemed equal after day two? It’s a who’s going to be the luckiest on the last day championship tournament, not a measure of who could catch them over multiple days; but hey, they voted on the championship tournament rules, right? And people wonder why MLF gets criticized all the time? Go figure.

Sure wish they would get some better commentators.

I agree. A championship, in my opinion, should not be basically no practice. I get all the reasons for moving it, but postponing it just a few more days so the guys could have a normal practice would have made this event much better. It feels more like one of their made for TV cup events.

I think there is a 100% chance that they change the rules in future Redcrest events, so the the top two weights automatically go to the championship round. Their goal is to make good TV and when your top 5 anglers are trying NOT to catch fish, thats a problem.

So how is it any different from a 5 fish tournament when the top guys have a solid bag and don't want to burn through their spot/fish to add ounces? It's about the same thing. They go looking for other areas and running new water and looking for alternative patterns. Same thing the leaders did hear. Save their best area for the next day.

Last weeks BASS event was pretty boring TV a lot of the time. They had to keep reverting back to highlights from the prior days. They needed to have filler for when they were fishing and not catching. I'd still prefer to watch guys fishing and hearing their thought process instead of flashbacks from the prior days or tournaments.

With that said, if it's bass fishing I'm going to watch it regardless of the format or tour.

Im thinking maybe not the top two after two days, but the heaviest single day weight each day the first two days skips to final. That might keep more of them after the fish. Obviously If the bite was stronger, might not have been quite as many backing off the fish.

It was a bit slow for my liking, but then again the fishing was slow and you have to have fish for every day. While you may not like the long game, fishing for $300K over 4 days there has to be strategy. Golf isn’t exciting watching drives from the second tee the first day either, but the last day is the payoff.

That would make be more consistent with what they do for the regular tour events since the first round the field is split into separate groups, thats why 2 instead of 1 get to skip directly to the championship round.

It’s night and day difference. An all weights count to determine winner, whereas with the MLF deadcrest, everyone gets a reset each time the field has a cut off, and in this case, that benefited everyone but Brian Thrift.

I always enjoy when Big O’ snags a new one to engage with. He ain’t wrong.
