4 Fishing Tournaments You Need to Catch in 2019

Fishing tournaments allow you to take your bragging rights to the next level. Instead of just making your friends jealous with tales of the one that got away, you can show off your mad fishing skills and win cold-hard cash! You could start by aiming for the top with a Bassmaster tournament. The Elite Series is essentially the Super Bowl of fishing, except it happens three times every year, and there are no cheerleaders (bummer, I know).

The FLW Tour (Fishing League Worldwide) is another professional level tournament. You have to qualify by competing the Lake Chaplain tournament in June, or the Lake Chickamauga tournament in May. Sorry, you can’t get into this on your looks, alone. You have to show you’ve got the goods to reel in a big one. Major League Fishing (MLF) is also a big deal in the fishing world, but MLF fishing events are invitation-only. Think you’ve got what it takes to keep up with the best? Check out these four tournaments to find out.
