(Jan 19, 2016 - Lake Guntersville, AL)

WHAT:                  The FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Choo Choo Division tournament on Lake Guntersville originally scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 23 has been postponed due to impending inclement weather.


WHERE:               New tournament location and date are TBD.


NOTES:                A new date and possible new location for the event are still being determined by FLW officials. The Choo Choo Division will now open Feb. 13 on Lake Guntersville.


The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 50 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and 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. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
