NOTES:

Anglers set to fish the Lake of the Ozarks in this mid-May BFL divisional tournament are in for a great day of bass fishing, with many parts of the lake expected to produce notable bites. Lake News Online reports bass are being caught on spinnerbaits and crankbaits along windy main-lake points in the Lower Osage area of the lake, with topwater lures, shaky-head worms and creature baits cited as productive in coves around logs and docks in Upper Osage. For anglers staying mid-lake, running umbrella rigs, spinnerbaits and crankbaits on windy main- and secondary-points, or working jigs, shaky-head rigs and tubes in spawning pockets could also be good bets. A 22-pound five-bass limit should be enough to secure the win at this Ozark Division tournament.

The 2019 BFL is a 24-division circuit devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 boaters and co-anglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, will advance to one of six regional tournaments where they are competing to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the longest-running championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the BFL All-American. The 2019 BFL All-American will be held May 30-June 1 at the Potomac River in Marbury, Maryland, and is hosted by the Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks and Tourism and the Commissioners of Charles County. Top performers in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the FLW Tour.
