A Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) bass-fishing tournament that features the top weekend anglers from the Bass Fishing League (BFL) will take place next weekend, Oct. 17-19, in Guntersville at the FLW BFL Regional Championship on Lake Guntersville.
The no-entry fee tournament, hosted by the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau, is a three day event that features the top pros and co-anglers from the Bama (Alabama), LBL (Kentucky), Mississippi, and Mountain (Kentucky-Tennessee) divisions casting for a top prize of $70,000, including a brand new Ranger Z518L boat with a 200-horsepower outboard in the pro division and a Ranger Z518L boat with a 200-horsepower outboard in the co-angler division.
In addition to the new Ranger boats, anglers are competing to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the BFL All-American. The 2020 BFL All-American will be held April 30-May 2 at Lake Hartwell in Anderson, South Carolina, and is hosted by Visit Anderson.
Anglers will take off from Lake Guntersville State Park, located at 7699 Alabama Highway 227 in Guntersville at 7 a.m. each day of competition. The weigh-ins will be held on Thursday and Friday at the State Park beginning at 3 p.m. On Saturday, the final day of competition, the weigh-in will be held at Cabela’s, located at 7090 Cabela Drive in Huntsville. All takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public.
The 2019 BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 boaters and co-anglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, advance to one of six regional tournaments.
