Walmart BFL tournament preview

Anglers wait to kick off the Northern Division EverStart on Kerr Lake.

The 2014 Walmart BFL season continues with three tournaments on Saturday, May 31. The Mountain Division will fish Barren River Lake, the North Carolina Division will continue their season on Kerr Lake and the Northeast Division will meet for the second time on the Potomac River. Up to 400 boaters and co-anglers will be competing in each event for top awards up to $8,000 and $3,000 respectively. When: Saturday, May 31 Where: Mountain Division Barren River Lake Port Oliver Recreation Area & Ramp 4200 Barren River Dam Road Scottsville, Ky. To sign up and fish this event, click here. Notes: The bass fishing on Barren River Lake is expected to be good. The fish are likely to be transitioning into their summertime haunts and many anglers will target them on deeper offshore structure and cover. Some competitors might also target fish around the shallow cover in the lake's upper reaches. Crankbaits, swimbaits, jigs, topwater baits and soft plastics will be popular lure choices. The winner is expected to bring in a five-bass limit weighing about 17 pounds. Where: North Carolina Division Kerr Lake New Nutbush Park 115 Jack Wade Farm Road Henderson, N.C. To sign up and fish this event, click here. Notes: The bass fishing on Kerr Lake should be good. Bass will be in postspawn and summer patterns throughout the lake. Many anglers will take the opportunity to target shallow flooded cover if the water level remains high. If the water level drops, the competitors will likely target drop offs, offshore structure, grass and docks. Jigs, soft plastics, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and topwaters should be good producers. The winning weight is projected to be close to 17 pounds. Where: Northeast Division Potomac River Smallwood State Park 2750 Sweden Point Road Marbury, Md. To sign up and fish this event, click here. Notes: The bass fishing on the Potomac River is likely to be very good. Fish will be in all stages of the spawn and should be eager to bite. Competitors may catch fish on current breaks and around the river's laydowns, but most of the field is likely to focus their attention in and around the grass beds the Potomac is famous for. Spinnerbaits, jigs, ChatterBaits, crankbaits, soft plastics and topwater frogs will be popular baits to throw. The winner is expected to bring about 20 pounds of bass to the scale. Walmart BFL overview The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and 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 Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy.
