The FLW Bass Fishing League is headed to Logan Martin Lake May 8 for the third of five stops in the Bama Division series. As many as 400 boaters and co-anglers will be competing for top awards of up to $8,000 and $3,000, respectively.
"This time of the year the fish will be moving out to a post-spawn pattern out on ledges and humps," said FLW Tour pro Greg Pugh of Cullman, Ala., who has won more than $668,000 in FLW Outdoors competition. "You should be able to catch them on a Carolina rig, a shaky-head rig with a finesse worm or a deep-diving crankbait. Color won't matter as long as it's chartreuse and blue or chartreuse and brown.
"You should also find fish on points early in mornings and they'll hit a topwater," Pugh added.
Takeoff and weigh-in will be at Lakeside Park located at 2801 Stemly Bridge Rd. in Pell City, Ala. Takeoff is scheduled for 5:30 a.m. while weigh-in will begin at 2 p.m. Takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public.
Bass Fishing League competition is a 24-division league circuit devoted to weekend anglers that offers even bigger prizes to qualifiers of the regional championship and those who make it to one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the BFL All-American presented by Chevy. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the American Fishing Series or even the FLW Tour.
