Alton Jones Jr. announced BassForecast as his title sponsor for the 2019 MLF season and the 2019 Bassmaster Classic. At 27 years old, Alton is the youngest angler on the 80 angler MLF Bass Pro Tour and one of the top young guns in the industry. MLF pulled off a major coup this winter by assembling the strongest field of competitors that the sport of bass fishing has ever seen. MLF is the #1 rated and fastest trending TV show on the Outdoor Channel. In 2019, MLF will air 850 hours of TV coverage and 350 hours of live streaming.
“In putting together my game plan, like all bass anglers, I watch the weather…past, current and forecast. BassForecast pulls it all together to give me an idea of what I am really trying to figure out…the mood of the fish, which is a big factor in choosing locations and baits to use,” says Alton. “BassForecast is so simple, fast and easy to use. They are exciting company that is doing things other forecasting and solunar companies serving our industry said would be too expensive & time consuming to pull off.”
BassForecast Co-founder, Mike Mehlmann (aka “Basstradamus”), an avid bass fisherman and self-proclaimed “bass science geek” said, “When I met Alton Jones Jr, I quickly realized why he accomplished so much so quickly. He is true student of the game that knows how to adapt and thrive…much like the bass fishing legends who have enjoyed longevity in the industry. And, he is such a sincere, relaxed and fun loving person. We are proud to be partnered with him.”
BassForecast is a mobile app custom designed for bass anglers to forecast bass feeding behavior. Unlike other “freshwater/multi-specie” fishing forecast apps, BassForecast is a specialized specie specific software tool that targets only Bass. In 2018, BassForecast achieved a #51 ranking out of 50,000+ sports apps listed on the App Store.
BassForecast Co-founder, Mike Mehlmann (aka “Basstradamus”), an avid bass fisherman and self-proclaimed “bass science geek” said,“We have been 100% focused on engineering our software for bass. It took our team a lot more time than expected, but it has been worth it. Last year, hundreds of customers wrote in to tell us that they caught their PB fishing on an Epic alert day...and that they would NOT have gone had they not received an alert from us 10 days prior. My favorite stories come from time strapped anglers that have been able to help their children catch more by identifying best odds days. Children remember these bonding experiences and talk about them for life!”
