FLW Rolls Out Details for 2019 FLW Tour Marshal VIP Experience
Brandon Cobb

MINNEAPOLIS – Fishing League Worldwide (FLW), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, announced today FLW Tour Marshal VIP Experience details for the 2019 FLW Tour season. The FLW Tour Marshal Experience is the opportunity of a lifetime for serious anglers, and is only available to FLW members who are at least 16 years old. Fans can apply to be a Marshal beginning Wednesday, Sept. 5.

A limited number of Marshal opportunities are available at each 2019 FLW Tour stop, along with the season-ending Forrest Wood Cup. It’s a VIP experience like no other for only $100 per qualifying tournament and $200 for the FLW Cup. Marshals will be treated to a VIP cookout and seminar with FLW Tour pros on the Wednesday before each FLW Tour event, plus they’ll get behind-the-scenes access throughout the event. They will also receive exclusive FLW Tour Marshal clothing and play a vital role in live coverage of the tournament by verifying each pro’s catch and relaying information to FLW editors. Although the Marshals won’t be fishing, they’ll be right in the middle of the action.

“The feedback that we have gotten from our fans and anglers regarding the implementation of the new Marshal program has been very positive and we are thrilled to offer this exciting new opportunity to get in the boat with FLW Tour pros,” said Kathy Fennel, FLW President of Operations. “Our FLW Tour pros are the best in the world, and the Marshal experience will be a learning opportunity like no other for serious anglers looking to improve their skills and fans that want to be as close to the action as possible.”

Marshals will also be eligible to win as much as $2,500 at every tournament, based on the combined weight of the pros they are paired with. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 10 Marshals. As an added bonus each Marshal will also be entered to win a new Ranger Z518L powered by a 200-horsepower Evinrude E-TEC G2 that will be given away to one lucky Marshal at the end of the season. Marshals will receive one entry in the Ranger boat giveaway for each opening round completed and can also earn bonus entries into the giveaway by marshaling on days three and four.

Apply starting Sept. 5 for the chance to ride along with an FLW Tour pro and learn about locating and catching big bass while they are fishing for a $125,000 or $300,000 payday. Fans are allowed to register for as many Marshal Opportunities that they would like. Full rules and details for the Marshal program along with the link to apply can be found at FLWFishing.com/Marshals.

In addition to the sport’s top payouts, FLW Tour pros will also be competing for valuable points in hopes of qualifying for the Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing. The 2019 FLW Cup will be held Aug. 9-11, 2019, on Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
