FLW Fantasy Fishing is back in 2014 with the largest prizes in bass fishing, improved game play and updated rules. FLW Fantasy Fishing is free to play and FLW members receive access to fantasy tools that greatly aid in angler selection.
The 2014 version of FLW Fantasy Fishing will emphasize strategy. Players build a roster of 10 pro anglers at predetermined values within a $200 salary cap for every Walmart FLW Tour stop. The value of each angler will change for each event, so players will have to adjust, not just to the fishery as in the past, but also to the valuation of each angler. This new format will force players to choose more than just the local favorites and perennial top finishers; the best-performing players will dig deep for high-value anglers.
Fifty prizes are awarded at each of the seven individual tournaments, including a $5,000 top prize. In addition, 10 cumulative prizes, including the $10,000 grand prize, will be awarded to the top scoring teams from all seven tournaments combined.
Players can view changes, examine angler valuations and select their roster at www.FantasyFishing.com. The FLW Tour opener is slated for Feb. 6-9 on Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston, Fla.
