T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League to Fish Douglas Lake

The FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) tournament season will continue Saturday, April 27, with a T-H Marine FLW BFL Volunteer Division tournament on Douglas Lake. Up to 400 boaters and co-anglers will be competing for top awards of up to $8,000 and $3,000 respectively in the one-day tournament. Take-off is set for 7:00 a.m. at Mountain Cove Marina ,1590 Dike Road Kodak, Tenn.

Douglas Lake is expected to fish strong for anglers competing in this late-April BFL Volunteer Division tournament. A variety of patterns will likely be seen. In past BFL events held on Douglas Lake this time of year, fishing mid-lake points and humps 20 to 25 feet down with a crankbait produced tournament-winning bites. Working a jig down rock ledges may also be a good bet. If postspawn bass are present, working a swimbait on points could be a strong pattern as well. A five-bass limit topping 19 pounds should be enough to tip the scales in the winner’s favor at this BFL Volunteer Division derby.

The 2019 BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 boaters and co-anglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, will advance to one of six regional tournaments where they are competing to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the BFL All-American. The 2019 BFL All-American will be held May 30-June 1 at the Potomac River in Marbury, Maryland, and is hosted by the Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism and the Commissioners of Charles County. Top performers in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the FLW Tour.
