Nine Skeeter/Yamaha Pros to Compete in 2019 MLF Bass Pro Tour
KILGORE, Texas — Skeeter, a leader in performance fishing boats, announced today that the company is an official boat sponsor of the all-new Major League Fishing (MLF) Bass Pro Tour and Bass Pro Championship. Nine professional anglers will run Skeeter boats during the 53 episodes airing on Discovery Channel, Sportsman Channel, CBS, and CBS Sports. All episodes are also available on-demand on MyOutdoorTV (MOTV).
“We are excited to be a part of this new professional bass tournament format,” said Jeff Stone, Senior Vice President, Skeeter Boats. “We wish our Skeeter pros the best of luck as they compete this season and we are proud to broaden our support of competitive fishing.”
Founded in 2011, MLF’s 80-angler Bass Pro Tour field is comprised of Bassmaster Classic champions, FLW Forrest Wood Cup winners, Anglers of the Year, and top tour performers in competitive bass fishing. The 2019 Bass Pro Tour season opened Jan. 29 in Kissimmee, Fla., and concludes with a championship event in August. Each Bass Pro Tour event will result in a two-hour television show that will air on Discovery Channel in the fourth quarter of 2019, and then repeat on Sportsman Channel in first and second quarters of 2020.
“The Skeeter brand is a favorite of many anglers, and we’re happy to have the company on board as an official boat sponsor,” said Jim Wilburn, President and CEO of Major League Fishing®. “It’s going to be a tremendous season. We look forward to great competition from the Skeeter pro anglers.”
