We witnessed a revolution last weekend. Live coverage under the tutorage of expert commentators; what more could fans ever want? But, is all this instant coverage good for bass tournament anglers?
The recent 2015 Classic provided amazing coverage for devoted bass nuts. Live coverage allowed Internet gawking anglers right onto the deck of top anglers. We witnessed how Dean Rojas shook his finesse worm around the face of docks. Suddenly, BASS commenter Mark Zona jumped off the stage and tracks down finesse guru Don Iovino for his expert opinion. As both scrutinized Dean’s technique, Don corrected Mark explaining that West coast Rojas was actually doing a doodle slide trying to trigger magnum spots.

During the final press conference, the woulda coulda shoulda question was broached to the final six anglers. Each clearly declared that they honestly felt that they made the correct choices. Even though five of them didn’t win, they were pleased with themselves. But, what if competitors could adjust their game plan based on live footage happening instantly as it unfolds? Second-guessing decisions is the demise of any tournament angler but this could easily adverted with one peak to a cell phone or tablet.
