The FLW College and High School tournament trails are making a stop in Bainbridge this weekend.
Anglers in the FLW Yeti College Bass Fishing Tournament took off from the Earl May Boat Basin at 7:30 Friday morning, competing for a $2000 grand prize and a coveted spot in the 2020 National Tournament. More than 170 teams are competing in the one day tournament with the hope of finishing in the top 17 and automatically earn qualification for the National Tournament. Weigh-in will be held at the Earl May Boat Basin at 3:00 today.
FLW College Fishing teams compete in three regular-season qualifying tournaments in one of five conferences – Central, Northern, Southern, Southeastern and Western. The top ten teams from each division’s three regular-season tournaments and the top 20 teams from the annual FLW College Fishing Open advance to the following year’s FLW College Fishing National Championship. Additional teams qualify for the National Championship if the field size in regular-season events exceeds 100 boats or 200 boats in the Open. The 2019 YETI FLW College Fishing National Championship is on the Potomac River, June 4-6, and hosted by the Charles County Board of Commissioners and the Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism.
For 2019 FLW College Fishing tournaments in the Central, Northern, Southern and Southeastern conferences will be held on Fridays. Western conference tournaments will continue to be held on Saturdays.
