Jeremy Lawyer's 4th place finish at the FLW Cup on Arkansas' Lake Hamilton was enough to earn him an extra $1,000 from Leer "Cover Cash" and $3,500 from Toyota Bonus Bucks. The 3rd year FLW Tour pro used a two-prong approach of fishing shallow with a topwater and probing deep brush piles with a drop shot to notch his best finish in FLW's championship event.
A Fall Creek Lures custom painted Whopper Plopper proved fruitful for Lawyer in the morning on days one and two of competition, while a Zoom Swamp Crawler (finesse worm) rigged on a drop shot fished in and around brush piles paid dividends for the Sarcoxie, MO pro throughout the event.
Lawyer went into the final day in contention to win but ultimately fell short of hoisting the Cup on Sunday. He may have narrowly missed the premium goal; but Lawyer was thrilled to learn he finished high enough to win the Leer and Toyota bonuses.
"Fishing is my business and I try to make as much money as possible at each tournament," Lawyer explained. "If I can cash an extra $4,500 for using products I need no matter what, it's a no brainer for me. I have to drive a tow vehicle and I've since becoming a full time fisherman I've learned I absolutely need to have a cover on my truck bed. The additional money from Leer "Cover Cash" and Toyota Bonus Bucks is just icing on the cake."
Lawyer's fishing prowess and consistency finds him near the top of the leaderboard often, whether he is competing in an FLW Tour event or in a weekend BFL. In 2019 alone Lawyer has bankrolled an additional ~$10,000 from the popular programs offered by Leer and Toyota.
"I purchased my first Toyota Tundra and Leer cover as a direct result of the contingency programs," Lawyer said. "But that doesn't mean they aren't great products! Both companies support the fishing industry and offer top-notch equipment. I've now owned at least three Leer caps or tonneau covers, and I'm currently driving my 4th Tundra. Heck even my wife and dad drive Toyotas nowadays, they are just great vehicles."
Lawyer's finish at the 2019 FLW Cup is proof you don't need to win an event to be eligible for contingency money from Toyota or Leer. You just need to be the highest finishing registered participant competing in a sponsored event for either program.
There are hundreds of events covered under each program. Whether you fish team tournaments, FLW BFLs, B.A.S.S. Nation events, or numerous others - you can earn extra money through Leer "Cover Cash" or Toyota Bonus Bucks.
