woke up and watching some BASS...and remembered heavy hitters is happening too! Started thinking about it, and it seems like the tournaments happen on the same weekends often......why?!?!?! LOL I figure itd be a smarter business decision to do them on different weeks so you have all the eyes on you...instead of making people choose which ones they want to watch on the same day (or bounce back and forth of course).

Does BASS or MLF release their schedule first and the other picks the same dates....or is it just working out that way?

Why did you even open the thread up then. No one was holding a gun to your head

Only so many weeks in a year, throw in inclement weather that covers about a 1/3rd of the country conflict in scheduling are bound to happen... Dan

Boyd did admit on BTL that it was a competition for business. Definitely one of those weeks where it can be easy for some to make a choice on which to watch.

that makes sense....but youd hope these 2 organizations would be able to pick non conflicting days. Just started thinking about it and seemed like both MLF and BASS being on at the same time were something i remember happening fairly often

theres the answer I was looking for, to see if its been addressed in any way out there. I get it he is competing against BASS after all...but man, for the viewer it sure would be nice to not have to bounce between them if you wanna catch both.

Now the question is....how do they stack on each other the way they do. Do they catch wind from moles/informant types that let the other know when theyre planning to schedule? I assume its not as easy logistically speaking as one dropping their schedule and the other setting up right on top of them...especially for how many tournaments are run/scheduled weekly nowadays. Or is it just like Dan mentioned....just bound to happen? Just seemed dumb to me from the consumer perspective

They addressed this extensively. Basically it came down to not scheduling on holidays and then permits allocated. It’s inevitable to not have some overlap.

Yes, these idiots could get together and work the overlaps out for the most part but they refuse. Duckett claims he has tried to get a line of communication with BASS about it but has been ignored. If you notice during the broadcasts MLF will talk about the Elite series because Cox also fishes it, on the other hand Bassmaster will refer to former FLW tour wins an angler with them has but not dare utter MLF, they just use the "another tournament organization" term. IMO its in BASS's court at this point.

Ok this makes sense. I dont follow BTL or the news places that cover tourney fishing...but wondered if any of this had been discussed. Sounds like it has...and its just bound to happen

I bet the wounds are still fresh....and I bet theres some stubborn folks involved. i do wish they would get together so there isnt overlap....how is that not good for EVERYONE, especially the consumer.
