Watts Bar Lake will host a fantastic day of bass fishing for BFL competitors. Anglers will likely be seen targeting bass on the move from deep-water winter haunts like creek channels, flats, ledges, humps and points to shallower water, especially near boat docks, brush and trees. Crankbaits, jigs and spinnerbaits should be good bets for lures. A five-bass limit in the 20-pound range should be able to take the win at this early- March Volunteer Division tournament.

The FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) tournament season will be held on Saturday, March 2, with the T-H Marine FLW BFL Volunteer Division opener on Watts Bar Lake presented by Navionics. 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. Takeoff: 7:30 a.m. EST. Weigh-In: 3:30 p.m.

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.
