James Elam Fishing

I’m headed to the Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour!

Eighty of the world’s finest professional bass tournament anglers have been invited to compete in the inaugural MLF Bass Pro Tour, and I’m proud to say I’m one of them.

What is the MLF Bass Pro Tour?  Major League Fishing, the folks behind the successful – and ongoing – MLF General Tire Cup events, have stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. The all-new MLF Bass Pro Tour represents a giant leap forward not only for professional bass tournament angling, but for the sport of bass fishing in general.

With original coverage airing on Discovery, then re-airing on the Sportsman Channel, the MLF Bass Pro Tour is destined to reach a broad audience and grow interest in our great sport like never before.
