FLW BFL Wildcard Venue Announced

MINNEAPOLIS (Sept. 28, 2014) – FLW has announced that the 2014 BFL Chevy Wild Card tournament will take place at Kentucky/Barkley lakes on Oct. 24 – 25. The event will launch from Moors Resort & Marina, located at 570 Moors Road in Gilbertsville, Kentucky.

In order to be eligible to fish the no-entry-fee BFL Chevy Wild Card tournament, anglers must have entered all five events within a BFL division during the 2014 season. In addition, anglers who have already qualified for a BFL regional are ineligible.

During the BFL Chevy Trucks Wild Card tournament, the full field competes both days, with winners determined by the heaviest two-day catch. The top six boater and top six co-angler finishers advance to the 2015 BFL All-American presented by Chevy based on accumulated weight.

New this year, the Wild Card will feature a free cookout with hourly door prizes during registration, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 23. The weigh-ins will also be streamed live each day on FLW Live.

The 2014 BFL Chevy Wild Card tournament is being hosted by the Kentucky Lake Convention & Visitors Bureau and Moors Resort & Marina. Tournament entries will be accepted beginning Monday, Sept. 29 at 9 a.m. EST, and will end Thursday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. EST. You may enter by phone at (270) 252-1000 or onsite at the pre-tournament meeting.

The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the Rayovac FLW Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.

FLW is the industry’s premier tournament-fishing organization, providing anglers of all skill levels the opportunity to compete for millions in prize money nationwide in 2014 over the course of 229 tournaments across five tournament circuits, four of which provide an avenue to the sport’s richest payday and most coveted championship trophy – the Forrest Wood Cup. FLW tournament fishing can be seen on the Emmy-nominated “FLW” television show and is broadcast to more than 564 million households worldwide, making it the most widely distributed weekly outdoors-sports television show in the world.
