So… Does it Work?

In the process of developing our algorithm that produces our BFR ratings, we continuously tested and adjusted our formula against real 2015 weather conditions until the BFR ratings matched the desired outcomes we planned for based on the combined body of research used in developing our BFR formula. Our vast research includes reports, studies and articles from a wide range of Fisheries Biologists, Bass Fishing Professionals, Water Engineers and Accuweather Meteorologists. The purpose of the BFR is to “improve your odds.” As any athlete will tell you, “improving your odds” does not guarantee a win every time out. BFR cannot account for individual body of water variables outside of anyone’s control such as how much fishing pressure it receives, poaching, algae blooms, lake turnover, etc.
