Lineberger Wins Walmart Bass Fishing League North Carolina Division Event On Lake Wylie
Smelser wins co-angler title
(Apr. 10, 2014 - LAKE WYLIE, S.C.)
A 20-year veteran, Lineberger earned the fifth BFL win of his career - his first on Lake Wylie - and pushed his career earnings mark with FLW to over $100,000.
Wayne Smelser of Rural Retreat, Va., weighed in a five-bass limit totaling 14 pounds, 11 ounces Saturday to win $2,118 in the co-angler division.
Rounding out the top 10 co-anglers were:
The top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers based on point standings will qualify for the Oct. 9-11 Regional Championship on Lake Cherokee in Morristown, Tenn. Boaters will compete for a top award of a Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard and a Chevy Silverado, while co-anglers will fish for a new Ranger Z518C with a 200-horsepower Evinrude or Mercury outboard.
The BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 120 tournaments throughout the season, five in each division. The top 40 boaters and co-anglers from each division qualify for a regional tournament and compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing - the Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy. The 2014 BFL All-American is being held June 5-7 on Wilson Lake in Florence, Ala. Top winners in the BFL can move up to the Rayovac FLW Series or even the Walmart FLW Tour.
