MINNEAPOLIS (April 12, 2004) — Coming May 2 on “FLW Outdoors,” veteran pro angler Larry Nixon will take a look back at the Wal-Mart Open on Beaver Lake presented by Tyson, which concluded April 3 with rookie pro Tim Klinger of Boulder City, Nev., claiming his first Wal-Mart FLW Tour victory. He edged out six-year veteran and Stratos pro Craig Powers of Rockwood, Tenn., by 13 ounces to claim the Wal-Mart Open title. Both pros will be on the show, along with sixth-place finisher Shinichi Fukae of Japan.

Klinger, who was competing in only his fourth FLW Tour event, walked away from the $1.25 million tournament $200,000 richer. He will talk about how he fished and what led him to victory. Powers, who used a variety of methods to reach the finals, left Beaver Lake with $100,000 in his pocket for his second-place finish. He will talk about what worked best for him out on the water. Fukae, who is also competing in his first year on the FLW Tour, has already landed in the top 10 twice this season. He will talk about how he does it.

The show will also chronicle the exciting final day of the tournament, which started with seven anglers within 4 pounds, 1 ounce of the lead. Features include an on-the-water segment with two-time Wal-Mart Open winner Clark Wendlandt of Cedar Park, Texas, who fishes for Team Kellogg’s, and an advanced angling segment with Dion Hibdon of Stover, Mo. Hibdon is currently ranked 18th on the FLW Tour and won the FLW Tour Championship in 2000.
