Complete List of Pros Switching to MLF

With the implementation of Major League Fishing's new Bass Pro Tour and its ever-popular format, a monumental change is happening in professional bass fishing that we have never seen before. 

Anglers will not be fishing multiple tours and as the deadline of Decision Day nears, many of bass fishing's biggest names and personalities are making the switch from their current tours in favor of the new MLF Bass Pro Tour and its appealing format.

Below is a current running list of the anglers that have announced their switch thus far.

It looks like the roster is set! All 80 spots have been filled! With an enormous addition in Mike Iaconelli to fill the last spot! If MLF was looking for star power, they sure got it. BASS has lost almost all of its top-tier anglers. Only the future will tell how everything plays out but one thing for sure is that we're going to be seeing a lot of new faces on the Elites this year! And get ready for MLF to be the new destination for top-level professionals in the industry for years to come, which used to be the Elites. Big things are happening in the fishing industry. Big things!
