Fantasy Fishing 2019 - Official Thread

Recommended Posts

The time has come for the 2019 Fantasy Fishing season to begin. For those unfamiliar, we have been doing this for a few years now as a fun way to compete and have a little fun among all our members. Do you think you have what it takes to take home 1st place for the season? 

 

 

Group Name: BassResource

Password: BR2019

 

We encourage all members to play along. Just pick your anglers prior to each BASS Elite event and share them (or don't) with the group. It's all part of the fun!

I pm'd a mod immediately once I made the thread. Hopefully they can fix it for us. 

 

First event is in 2 weeks. Do your research and put a team in!

Edit - Thank you @J Francho

I did no research my first year, just went with gut/whim. And I bombed.

I did pretty extensive research my second year and finished pretty high overall, and within the top 5 of the BR group.

I did a lot of research again last year.....and bombed again.

 

So. Gonna try the hat thing this time, too.

With all the new faces, its hard to know who to pick.  I like your approach, may have to do the same.

I'll have at least one of the Canadians on my team as well.

I think the new FLW Canucks are going to do well this year.

This year it's going to be hard to even do research, so many new faces who don't have pro experience on any of these bodies of water. Add to that FLW doesn't fish many of the same lakes as BASS, the remaining Elite guys are the only ones with much history to research. Should be a fun year!

Don't discount these guys skills just because they aren't a household name yet. I think by mid year, we're all going to have an eye opening experience whenever we realize that some of these new guys are the real deal.

I picked Hubnall. Randomly started following him in social media a few years ago and am rooting for him

I'm in. No rationale on my team. Just winging it. Other than drew Benton. He seems like a good choice.
