Next year Major League Fishing anglers are competing in the MLF Bass Pro Tour and you'll be able to catch all the action on the MLF NOW! live stream on MajorLeagueFishing.com. But we’re not giving up our #1 spot in the ratings on Outdoor Channel. Here’s a look at how you’ll watch MLF in 2019. Warn your family and your boss ASAP.

The brand-new season will premiere on Outdoor Channel on Saturday, Jan. 5 from 2 to 4 p.m. ET. Similar to the 2018 season, four MLF events will air over 24 weeks (six episodes per event): The Summit Select, the Summit Cup, the Challenge Select, and the Challenge Cup.

  • 2019 Summit Select: Shot in May of 2018 on lakes around Ardmore, Oklahoma. This is the first time you’ll see MLF pros Brandon Coulter, JT Kenney, Jason Lambert, Jordan Lee, and Justin Lucas compete in an MLF event.
    • Airing Saturday, Jan. 5 through Feb. 9
  • 2019 Summit Cup: Shot in August of 2018 on lakes around Waterville, Maine. Some of the veteran MLF Cup anglers remember competing in Waterville during one of the earlier MLF events, the 2015 Summit Cup.
    • Airing Saturday, Feb. 16 through March 23
  • 2019 Challenge Select: Shot in July of 2018 on several sections of Lake Champlain in Vermont. This is the first time you will see Matt Lee compete in an MLF event. This is also the final MLF Select event.
    • Airing Saturday, March 30 through May 4
  • 2019 Challenge Cup: Shot in October of 2018 on lakes around Albemarle, North Carolina.
    • Airing Saturday, May 11 through June 15
    • After this competition airs, the lineup for the 2019 General Tire World Championship will be released (airing on CBS and Discovery Channel in the summer of 2019)

This is the first time you’ll be able to watch a new episode of MLF on your television (Outdoor Channel, 2-4 p.m. ET) while you’re watching the Bass Pro Tour MLF NOW! live stream on MajorLeagueFishing.com. Make sure your laptop/tablet is charged for the occasion!

On Feb. 3, the first Bass Pro Tour Championship Round will be on the MLF NOW! live stream on MajorLeagueFishing.com. It will be another memorable day for the anglers and everyone involved in MLF. We heard there’s another big championship scheduled for this day, but we’ll be focused on fishing. 

In 2019 there will be eight MLF Bass Pro Tour events, plus the Bass Pro Tour Redcrest (the championship event) on the MLF NOW! live stream. Here’s a look at the family-friendly schedule.
