FLW 2009 is now open for registration.

If you are gonna play and get Players Advantage than you might as well use Dave "BP" Maas as the one who referred you which you can do by registering here.

FYI- If you played FBF with FLW last year, all you have to do to register is hit the "Log-In" tab and enter your email and password from last year and then you have to approve the rules and terms of use and your in. You will be automatically entered into the leagues you participated in last year and will even be given a team of anglers for the first event, of coarse you can edit that team to get the anglers ou want.

BP Commentary-They are going down 430 places with prizes this year as opposed to 639 last year and the scoring is the same lame system from last year with those bonus points for Top 10 picks and super bonus points for a Top 10 pick exacta. I suppose the change in prizes and the lack of change in the scoring are hardly surprising. I can't say I am that disappointed with the change in the amount of prizes because this game is so exceedingly generous it's almost preposterous even with the changes. $100,000 for 1st place and they could stop with the prizes right there and I would think they were nuts.

I am not really happy that they kept the same exact scoring system from last year because I think it just brings luck into the equation more than it has to be. I can see giving a big exacta bonus for getting the winning angler right but to have smaller but crucial exacta bonuses in the 9 remaining spaces of the Top 10 rewards blind luck over the skillful picks of a strong team inside and outside of the Top 10 where I think the Fantasy Bass Fishing points should rightfully be decided.

2008 FLW Fantasy Perfect Scores and More

Base Score
1-10= 1955
11-20= 1855

Tour Bonus Points: Toho, Lewis Smith, Loudoun-Tellico
Top 10=500x10= 5,000
Exacta#1= 2,000
Ex 2-10=750x9= 6,750
1-10= 1,955
Total 15,705

Open Bonus Points: Norman, Beaver, Detriot River
Top 10=1000x10= 10,000
Exacta#1= 4,000
Ex2-10=1500x9= 13,500
1-10= 1,955
Total= 29,455

Bonus Points: Forrest Wood Cup
Top 10=1500x10= 15,000
Exacta#1= 6,000
Ex.2-10=2250x9= 20,250
1-10= 1,955
Total= 43,205

Analysis: A perfect line up, besides being worth millions of dollars in the 7-up game would probably be enough to carry any team to the million in year end prizes. However the odds of putting together a perfect line up must make powerball odds wince.

Being Realistic:
A very solid base score is 1500
Getting 2 anglers in the Top 10 is doing really well.
Don't pin your hopes on ever getting an Exacta

Tour Events=1500+1000=2500
Open Events=1500+2000=3500
FW Cup=1500+3000=4500

I feel like these scores will be good to get a person into the Top 250 in prizes. I'll make an adjustment if needed after the Toho scores are released.

So 22,500 Would be a very strong showing for End of the Year Prizes. (Actually I think the million dollar winner will probably need something less than this)

FBF News 2008

I am a little slow on the draw, but the BASS Fantasy Bass Fishing and Super 6 pick'em are now open for registrations. Better hurry cause the classic starts Feb. 22.

The prizes this year seem to be a small step up from last year maybe. For the Classic they are going down 10 places and for regular Elite Series events they go down 6 places. I can't say that I am very impressed with the #1 prize for the classic: One (1) 100,000 Trip Reward Points from Ramada Inn ($500 ARV) for First Place.

Right now my leagues are: (This is subject to change if no one else sign's up)
Minnesocold Fantasy Bassmaster
Minnesocold Super 6

Hulkster Hawks FLW Fantasy Fishing: "Sign up or to the turn-buckle you go!"

Apparently he is going to have a Fantasy Fishing Blog.

I'm just glad they didn't go with Jesse "Govenor Turn-buckle" Ventura.
