The tournament, which began Wednesday and will conclude Saturday, will determine the top 48 anglers who will compete in the prestigious $1.5 million FLW Tour Championship, scheduled to take place Aug. 11-14 on Logan Martin Lake near Birmingham, Ala. The top pro finisher at the championship will take home $500,000 cash – the sport’s largest guaranteed cash award. Also decided by the results on Lake Champlain will be the Land O’Lakes Angler of the Year, a title that opens the door to big opportunities, including heightened exposure to sponsors, which can greatly help an angler secure a career in professional fishing. The angler will talk Sunday about the experience of winning the coveted title.
