EUFAULA, Ala. – After Bryan Thrift’s most successful season as a pro in 2019, claiming the 2019 FLW Cup, eight Top 10s, two event wins and over $520,000 in tournament winnings, Thrift made the move to MLF’s 2020 Bass Pro Tour.

With a new format and 80 of the best bass anglers in the world, Thrift adjusted with ease and grace. During Stage One, the newcomer won his group’s Qualifying Round and placed second overall, earning a $42,000 paycheck and establishing himself as a contender.
