FLW Circuit

on ’Rayburn

The FLW Pro Circuit’s 2020 season gets underway on Jan. 23-26 at Sam Rayburn Reservoir. Not surprisingly, some anglers are anticipating a slugfest if the conditions line up.

It’s the first FLW pro event since the popular Kentucky-based tournament organization was bought out by Major League Fishing last fall.

A full field of 150 pros will compete for two days, cutting to the Top 30 on Day 3 and the Top 10 for the final round. The first-place pro earns $100,000. The tournament pays 75 spots, with last place earning $5,000.

Daily weigh-ins will be held at Umphrey Pavilion in Brookeland, beginning at 3 p.m. on days 1-2 and 4 p.m. during the final two rounds.
