Dave Lefebre has been a professional angler for 17 years and this new professional tour was something he and many other pros had been waiting for.
“It’s going to do a 180 on professional bass fishing.”
How do you feel about the comments being made, both positive and negative around this new tour?
We were able to ask Dave how he felt with all of the negative comments and concerns arising around this new tour. He stated, “Ya know, I think we all just gotta get along, we all love to fish, that’s the bottom line.” We all just want to grow this sport and get it to where it’s meant to be, and Dave agrees! With everything that goes on in our sport, there’s never been a better time to grow the sport of bass fishing.
Was the switch from the FLW Tour to the Bassmaster Elite Series similar to the switch your undergoing from the Elite’s to the Bass Pro Tour?
Dave’s switch from the Elite’s to the Bass Pro Tour hasn’t been incredibly taxing emotionally. He saw the opportunity as a no brainer and knows what this opportunity means for the sport of bass fishing. He made the connection between his switch from the FLW tour to the Bassmaster Elite series to how most anglers feel about switching from BASS to the Bass Pro Tour. His switch from FLW was tough, he was leaving friends and family in that area of the sport to pursue a bigger dream. Many anglers are making that choice now and that is why there is so much raw emotion coming out. The anglers are making a tough choice, but many understand the choice will not only determine their careers, but the future of the sport of bass fishing.
