2024 Major League Fishing Schedule And Roster

As the MLF transitions back to its “every legal fish counts” format, there have been a few additional changes. The 2024 Major League Fishing schedule and roster may look a little different but will still pack some of the top professional anglers in the country. We’ll cover what to expect, the schedule and location, and all the anglers who are expected to fish the MLF in 2024.

2024 Major League Fishing Changes

Every MFL Bass Pro Tour event in 2024 will have a new format in addition to the scoring modifications. Anglers from Group A will compete with 40 anglers on Days 1 and 3. Anglers in Group B will compete with forty fishermen on Days 2 and 4. The Knockout Round (Day 5) will only be reached by the Top 10 anglers from each group, determined by their two-day cumulative heaviest weight. 

The Knockout Round will see weights zeroed, and the top 10 anglers will move on to the Championship Round (Day 6). The Knockout Round weights will be carried over to the Championship Round, and the highest combined two-day weight from the Knockout and Championship rounds will determine the winner of each event.

In order to better coordinate with the REDCREST Outdoor Sports Expo, MLF also revealed that REDCREST 2024 will take place over four days. The competition is set to take place on Alabama’s Lay Lake from March 14–17. Birmingham will host the free, kid-friendly REDCREST Outdoor Sports Expo from March 15–17.

How Major League Fishing Anglers Will Adjust in 2024

As the new rules and adjustments take place for 2024, it will be interesting to see new fishing tips and techniques that are revealed. “We’re excited to announce the Bass Pro Tour roster for the 2024 season,” said Kathy Fennel, Executive Vice President & General Manager of Major League Fishing. “The Bass Pro Tour represents the highest level of competition our sport has to offer, and nowhere is that more evident than in the field of anglers who will be competing in 2024. It’s going to be an extremely competitive season.”

    I like the every fish counts rule for MLF. But I don’t agree with them downsizing the field to only 80 guys. Great article and information.

    Did these guys choose not to compete

      Hi William – some anglers chose to go back/join Bassmaster this season. Also, the field was reduced which resulted in some fishermen not making “the cut.” Tight lines, William.
