Ouch! Thats too much for me. Are they 1,2 or 3 day events. Maybe for a 2 or 3 day event.

I believe they are 3 day events, but it might be just 2 guaranteed with the top 10 or so fishing the 3rd day.

I think bassmasher may have confused the FLWTour events w/ the FLW League events. Entry fees for the league events are $300 per boater and $150 per co-angler for each one day qualifying tournament in 2007. If you qualify for the 3 day league finals there is no fee.

MN Division

April 28th Mississippi Bay City

June 16 Mille Lacs

July 21 Lake Bemidji

WI Division

April 21st Petenwell Flowage

June 2 Wolf River Winneconne

July 7 Green Bay

There is more information at the FLW Outdoors website or call (270) 252-1000.

Thanks guy, but I found my sign-up partner. $450 for three tournaments with a 20 place payout and a $3500 top prize as a co-angler isn't alot of money. Not to mention the knowledge that can be gained by tournament fishing. The league will limit sign up to 100 co-anglers and 100 boaters. With the new payouts both should fill up.

"A lot" is relative I guess. $150 is less expensive than hiring a guide for a day and you have the opportunity to recover expenses if your team performs well. Plus there's always an opportunity to network and pre-fish with other contestants. By fishing these events I will learn more about each particular body of water thereby expanding my future opportunities and, hopefully, I'll learn some new techniques. I will be probably be fishing the WI events so I hope to learn more about pulling cranks behind boards on Lake Poygon and become better at fishing crawler harnesses in Green Bay.

GatorBait,

That is a very generous offer and much appreciated. I can't think of any specific questions now but I'm sure I will have some when May rolls around. I fish Bago a lot so I could probably trade some tips w/ you.

primetime,

Here's the October press release announcing the upcoming season. As far as I know, it's the only information available at this time. Registration will likely begin in early February. In addtion to the preference given to Ranger, G3, Polar Kraft, Champion and Stratos boat owners and TBF members, priority is also given to those that sign up as boater/co-angler together (although signing up together doesn't mean you'll fish together).

18.Oct.2006

BENTON, Ky. — FLW Outdoors announced Wednesday its 2007 Wal-Mart FLW Walleye League schedule with more lucrative awards in every tournament and a total purse of $632,450 over 10 events held on some of the nation’s best walleye fisheries.

Boaters fishing the FLW Walleye League will now compete for top awards of $7,500 in every qualifying tournament, and co-anglers will compete for as much as $3,750. These awards, based on a field of 100 boats, include $7,000 cash plus a $500 contingency bonus from Ranger, Polar Kraft or G3 for boaters and $3,500 cash plus a $250 contingency bonus for co-anglers. Payouts extend through 20th place in each qualifier.

The FLW Walleye League features three one-day qualifying tournaments in the Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin divisions. After three qualifiers are complete, the top 35 boaters and 35 co-anglers from each division will advance to the $141,950 no-entry-fee Wal-Mart FLW Walleye League Finals where the winning boater will receive a $47,500 Ranger 621 powered by Evinrude or Yamaha. The second-place boater at the FLW Walleye League Finals will receive a $32,000 Polar Kraft V1910 Pro DC powered by Yamaha, and the winning co-angler will receive a $27,000 G3 V185F powered by Yamaha.

The boater and co-angler points champions from each division will also advance to the $675,850 Wal-Mart FLW Walleye Tour Championship where they can win as much as $150,000 and $22,000, respectively.

FLW Walleye League qualifiers are one-day, $49,050 events held on Saturdays. The FLW Walleye League Finals is a three-day event with the full field competing on days one and two and the top 10 teams advancing to day three. The winner is determined by the cumulative weight from all three days.

“Our company was founded on providing affordable, close-to-home weekend tournaments,” said Charlie Evans, president and CEO of FLW Outdoors. “These grass-roots anglers are the heart and soul of FLW Outdoors, and we take great pride in providing them with the best possible tournament options as well as a clear pathway for advancement to competitive fishing’s highest levels.”

The top 10 boaters and 10 co-anglers from each FLW Walleye League division in 2007 will have the option to advance to the 2008 Wal-Mart FLW Walleye Tour.

Competition in the Michigan Division begins March 31 on the Detroit River in Trenton, Mich., followed by a May 19 tournament on Lake Erie in Monroe, Mich., and a June 30 tournament on Saginaw Bay in Bay City, Mich.

Teams fishing the Wisconsin Division will take to the water April 21 for a tournament on Petenwell Lake in Monroe Center, Wis., followed by a June 2 tournament on the Wolf River Chain in Winneconne, Wis., and a July 7 tournament on Green Bay in Oconto, Wis.

Minnesota Division competition will kick off April 28 on the Mississippi River in Bay City, Wis., followed by a June 16 tournament on Lake Mille Lacs in Isle, Minn., and a July 21 tournament on Lake Bemidji in Bemidji, Minn.

The FLW Walleye League Finals will be held Sept. 13-15 on the Mississippi River in Moline, Ill.

Entry fees are $300 per boater and $150 per co-angler for each qualifying tournament in 2007. Ranger, G3, Polar Kraft, Champion and Stratos boat owners and TBF members have priority entry into the 2007 FLW Walleye League. Entry dates will be released soon.

Named after the legendary founder of Ranger Boats, Forrest L. Wood, FLW Outdoors is home to the Wal-Mart FLW Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Series, Stren Series, Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League, Wal-Mart Texas Tournament Trail presented by Abu Garcia, Ranger Owners’ Tournament Trail, Stratos Owners’ Tournament Trail, Wal-Mart FLW Walleye Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Walleye League, Wal-Mart FLW Kingfish Tour, Wal-Mart FLW Kingfish Series, Wal-Mart FLW Redfish Series and Wal-Mart FLW Striper Series. These circuits will offer combined purses exceeding $43 million through 247 events in 2007.

Be aware this is information to sign up for the tour events, but the word is it will be the same for the league.

The registration details for the league events has not been released yet. Very soon though.

What's the TBF membership? I'm an FLW member, is that the same thing?

Also, am I understanding that if you sign up as a boater/coangler combo, you still are put in the pool for the draw?

      Cannons a go good 3 inches where I check and two guys out 100 yards
    • Surface Tension
      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.
    • Surface Tension
      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.
    • Surface Tension
      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
