Major League Fishing Announces 2021 Bass Pro Tour Schedule
Major League Fishing (MLF) announced today the 2021 MLF Bass Pro Tour schedule, which will showcase the best bass anglers in the world competing on many of the top fisheries in the United States. The 2021 Bass Pro Tour season will run from March to September and feature seven regular-season tournaments. MLF will also host four MLF Cups, REDCREST and the MLF General Tire Heavy Hitters – an all-star event that highlights the 40 anglers from the Bass Pro Tour with the highest cumulative weight from their single largest bass in each of the five regular-season events held in 2020.
“We are hitting these lakes and rivers at the right time for incredible competition. I’m expecting the Bass Pro Tour anglers to keep SCORETRACKER busy all year long,” said Michael Mulone, Senior Director of Events & Partnerships for MLF. “Our host cities understand the power of our brand and are primed and ready to welcome our anglers, staff, sponsors and fans. We are so grateful for their continued partnerships and are looking forward to bringing fast-paced, fan-friendly competition to their communities and to our fans worldwide.”
Each stage of the Bass Pro Tour includes six days of competition using the catch, weigh, immediate-release format, broadcast live on the Major League Fishing app, MyOutdoorTV (MOTV), and MajorLeagueFishing.com, totaling more than 450 hours of original programming. Fans can also follow the on-the-water action as it unfolds on the live SCORETRACKER® leaderboard.
The 2021 MLF Bass Pro Tour will air on Discovery Channel beginning in July 2021 and Sportsman Channel in early 2022.
In MLF Bass Pro Tour competition, anglers are vying for valuable points in hopes of qualifying for REDCREST, the world championship of professional bass fishing. REDCREST 2021 will feature the REDCREST Expo, February 26-28, at Expo Square in Tulsa, Oklahoma – a free, family-friendly event featuring all the new products and gear in the fishing, boating and outdoor industry.
