The 25th season of the FLW Tour will feature seven regular-season tournaments showcasing the best anglers in the world competing at top bass fisheries at peak times.
“Lake County is excited to welcome back the Fishing League Worldwide Tour,” said Lake County Commissioner Tim Sullivan. “The abundant Harris Chain of Lakes, in particular, has increasingly become a destination for major fishing tournaments such as this one, which will bring the world’s top anglers to our great county. We wish them a successful event and encourage them to take some time to enjoy all that Lake County has to offer, and discover why we are ‘Real Florida, Real Close.”
