A Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) bass-fishing tournament that features the top weekend anglers from the T-H Marine Bass Fishing League (BFL) takes place next weekend, Oct. 24-26, in Grove at the T-H Marine FLW BFL Regional Tournament on Grand Lake.
The no-entry fee tournament, hosted by the City of Grove, is a three-day event that features the top pros and co-anglers from the Arkie (Arkansas), Cowboy (Texas-Louisiana), Illini (Illinois), and Ozark (Missouri) 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.
Anglers will take off from Wolf Creek Park, located at 963 N. 16th St., in Grove at 7:30 a.m. CDT each day of competition. The weigh-ins will be held each day at the park beginning at 3:30 p.m. 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.
