(Jun 24, 2015 - Minneapolis, MN) Walmart FLW Tour pros Jeff Barth, Marshall Deakins, Brent Long, Colby Schrumpf, Terry Segraves and Derrick Snavely have informed FLW of their decisions to withdraw from the Tour prior to the final regular-season event of the 2015 season. A tournament field of 142 boats will compete this week at the FLW Tour on the Potomac River presented by Ranger Boats.
 
In FLW Tour competition, anglers are also vying for valuable points in hopes of qualifying for the 2015 Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing. The 2015 Forrest Wood Cup will be in Hot Springs, Arkansas, Aug. 20-23 on Lake Ouachita and is hosted by Visit Hot Springs. The Forrest Wood Cup Champion could win as much as $500,000 – professional bass-fishing’s richest prize.
