MLF Cancels Day 1 of 2023 Toyota Series on Rayburn

The 2023 tournament Season will start a day late. In a move that most of the field could see coming and fully supports, Toyota Series Tournament Director Mark McWha canceled Day 1 of the Southwestern Division season-opener the Toyota Series at Sam Rayburn Reservoir.

A strong north wind is blowing right down the pipe on the lake, creating dangerous conditions for boaters. On Wednesday, the full field will get another day of rest and preparation. All pros and co-anglers will hit the water for two days of action on Thursday and Friday.

Anglers will launch each day at 7 a.m. CT from the Umphrey Family Pavilion in Brookeland. Weigh-ins will also be held at the Pavilion and will begin at 3 p.m. Fans are welcome to attend and encouraged to follow the event online through the “MLF Live” weigh-in broadcasts and daily coverage at
