BFL - Walmart Bass Fishing League - South Carolina Division - 2016
I have never liked the phrase, "Its not what you know, but who you know." But there are some times in life, and on the water, when you need to let it work in your favor. Letting my fishing network of friends work for me is what led me to a lot of personal best moments during the BFL at Santee Cooper.
Grass roots meet big money in this 24-division league devoted to weekend anglers, with even bigger prizes available to regional championship qualifiers and those who make it to one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the All-American. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the EverStart Series or even FLW Tour.
How much can I win?: Boaters – up to $9,500 or $12,500, depending on regular-season event; Co-Anglers – up to $3,000 or $4,500, depending on regular-season event (including contingency awards).
See payout by tournament (navigate to the Details tab for specific events within the schedule, including higher-stakes Super Tournaments, which are the final regular-season event in each division).
