Start @ 15:25 mark to skip past Auburn rant and hear the latest scuttle butt about MLF. He’s been pretty accurate about things he includes in his podcasts, and there is no question that he has the connections to the inside. Have any of you seen an article or write up by MLF or it’s affiliated BassFan about Otts win in the latest where it showed the payout through the whole field? It would be interesting to see what it is now that they are paying entry fees... maybe it’s not up to the expectations?

Luke Dunkin is the National Enquirer of bass fishing. Big O for someone that can't stand MLF you sure do post a lot about them

Luke Dunkin is hella annoying! LOL

People that like him are usually anti MLF and only like him because he is anti MLF too....at least thats what ive noticed. Meh...at least he knows his demo.

These boys made their beds and now its time to lie in it. BASS really powered through the muck these last few years since the schism...and really showed they could survive without the KVDs, Ike's.....and even the Swindle's and Palauniks. The ones that already made the jump cuz they could see the smoke and knew there was fire were the smart ones.....cant imagine BASS letting a mass exodus of MLFers fish the elites. Opens might just be stupid tough the next couple/few years 🤷‍♂️

I hear the MLFers would rather run with wolves anyway 😂🤔🤦‍♂️

suspect the bottom 40 in BASS standings ain't too happy after paying entry fees and having no winnings and no TV exposure....

I think there are a lot of indicators visible that what Luke reports is probably more accurate than not. If the general observer and bass angling fan can see things then I can imagine the anglers involved know a lot more about what’s going on and being said. I found it interesting he said “FLW 2.0” more than once... my guess is that BPT and perhaps the Cups goes away completely and the old FLW is going to be the only thing remaining.

They haven’t published a entry fee and payout schedule for BPT, the old published process and structure for line of advancement/demotion in and out of BPT is obviously void because it wasn’t followed for the 2021 season and nothing has been published as a replacement. There is strong rumors that JM will be pulling the Bass Pro Shops endorsement at end of current contract. I think Luke probably knows way more than he leads on that he does.

All anglers get LIVE broadcast exposure in front of fans at every tournament for at least 2 days when they cross that big stage in front of big crowds of fans, regardless the total weight of fish caught. If they have little to no winnings on the Elite series, BASS will soon replace them, using a well established and publicly disclosed process, with anglers who have earned their way into the Elites via AOY points and wins in the open qualifiers. That’s something those who gullibly remained fishing the old FLW circuits relying upon on empty promises can only wish for these days.
