As many as 200 boaters and 200 co-anglers are expected to compete in the Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League Carolina Division tournament, June 16 on High Rock Lake.
SALISBURY, N.C. (June 5, 2007) – The North Carolina Division of the $8.8 million Wal-Mart Bass Fishing League will visit High Rock Lake in Salisbury, N.C., June 16 for the fourth of five regular-season events.

As many as 200 boaters and 200 co-anglers are expected to compete in the tournament, which will award as much as $45,000 in cash, including a top award of $6,000 in the Boater Division.

If the winner is a participant in the Ranger Cup incentive program, he will receive a $1,000 bonus from Ranger Boats and $500 from Yamaha if his boat is powered by Yamaha. Ranger will award $500 to the highest-finishing Ranger Cup participant if not the winner, and Yamaha will kick in $250 if the boat is powered by Yamaha.

Bombardier will award $1,000 to the winning boater if the winner’s boat is equipped with a qualifying Evinrude E-TEC or Direct Injection outboard. That’s a potential top award of $8,000 for anglers who meet contingency guidelines.

The winning co-angler will earn as much as $3,000 cash.

Snickers Big Bass awards of up to $1,000 and $500, respectively, will also be awarded in the Boater and Co-angler Divisions.

Anglers may register for the tournament online at www.FLWOutdoors.com or by calling (270) 252-1000. Onsite registration will be held June 15 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Wal-Mart store located at 323 S. Arlington St. in Salisbury. Entry fees are $200 for boaters and $100 for co-anglers.

Smiley’s Tamarac Marina in Salisbury will host the takeoff and weigh-in at 6 a.m. and 2 p.m., respectively.

A two-day Super Tournament, the division’s fifth and final event, will be held on Kerr Lake in Henderson, N.C., Sept. 8-9.

Following the end of regular-season competition, the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers in the North Carolina Division will advance to the Fort Loudoun-Tellico Lakes Regional Championship in Lenoir City, Tenn., Oct. 18-20 and will compete against anglers from the Bama, LBL and Music City divisions for an All-American berth.

In BFL competition, boaters supply the boat and compete from the front deck against other boaters. Co-anglers compete from the back deck against other co-anglers.
