(Jul 27, 2018 - Buffalo, New York)

WHAT: The second day of competition at the Costa FLW Series event on Lake Erie presented by Polaris has been cancelled due to high winds.

NOTES: Tournament director Ron Lappin said current plans call for the tournament to continue Saturday morning with all 338 pros and co-anglers fishing.
“Unfortunately, the forecast for Saturday isn’t much better, so we’ll have to wait and see,” said Lappin, “We won’t take any chances. If we can fish ­– and we’re planning to fish now – the pairings will remain the same.”

As it now stands, Saturday’s final-day round will determine the final standings. Lappin said competitors would be notified later Friday regarding Saturday’s plans.

Saturday’s final weigh in will take place at 2 p.m. EDT at Safe Harbor Marina, located at 1111 Fuhrmann Blvd., in Buffalo, New York.

The Costa FLW Series consists of five U.S. divisions – Central, Northern, Southeastern, Southwestern and Western – along with the International division. Each U.S. division consists of three regular-season tournaments with competitors vying for valuable points that could earn them the opportunity to compete in the season-ending Costa FLW Series Championship. The 2018 Costa FLW Series Championship is being held Nov. 1-3 on Lake Guntersville in Guntersville, Alabama, and is hosted by the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
