Will any of the MLF guys be working the expo?

Will BASS "allow" them?
Will MLF "allow" them?

I would think sponsors would want them to..........

Who is more powerful? BIG sponsor or Tour?

BASS didn't stop them last year. KVD, Ike, EE and many more were there. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Current BASS guys and former all interacted and looked to be having fun. I think most have moved on from the initial split drama on the angler level.

If BASS allows them to fish Opens I doubt they stop them from being at the Expo. I recall MLF possibly not wanting their anglers there last year but I imagine paying sponsors want their folks there no matter who it bothers.

Aside from a handful of Drama LLama's on the internet I don't think there is any animosity between any of the anglers nor the sponsors. cheers

These guys are all in the fishing business and business is good! thumb

90% of the people who walk through the door of the expo haven’t got a clue who fishes what. Overall it doesn’t matter. Every pro angler with a sublimated jerseys is asked the same question over and over, “how did you do today?”
The point is the expo has one very simple objective, to put butts through the turnstiles and it works.
Today the Classic for virtually all that attend, is a huge fishing flea market that a tournament broke out at.

Does anyone know if the vendor list changes throughout the 3 days or if it stays the same? Also does anyone know if the megabass booth will be there? I didn’t see them on the vendor list

I think it's worth it. But I prefer to be OTW and watch them fish. I've been to several Classics and never made the Expos, just stayed on the water and had a great experience.

We will not have a Megabass dedicated booth this year at the Classic. Instead we will be helping out Megabass retailers in their booths. We have some show specials going on as well as special Classic release only merchandise.
