The Phoenix Bass Fishing League (BFL) will finish out its 2023 season in Eufaula Oct. 5-7.
“The water levels on Lake Eufaula are always important to watch leading up to the event,” said pro Kelly Jordon of Flint, Texas, who won on the Tackle Warehouse Invitational tournament on Lake Eufaula earlier this season. “The water is at full pool right now, which really isn’t high. But watch the weather leading up to the event – if there is any rain or the water comes up, you’ll have to get to town on the bank.
“Water clarity is very important, too,” Jordon continued. “There is plenty of muddy water, but I expect most anglers will likely concentrate on the clear water on the lower end of the lake. It’s fall, so the fish are chasing shad. The main-lake bite could be tough – the fish offshore are scattered. But with forwardfacing sonar, someone can find those fish and really pick them apart.” Hosted by the Eufaula Area Chamber of Commerce, the three-day regional tournament will feature the top 45 boaters and co-anglers plus tournament winners from all four of its divisions, battling it out for a top prize of $60,000, including a Phoenix 819 Pro bass boat with a 200-horsepower Mercury outboard and $10,000, along with lucrative contingency awards, including up to an additional $7,000 Phoenix MLF Bonus.
Strike King co-anglers will compete for a top prize of $50,000, including a Phoenix 819 Pro bass boat with a 200-horsepower Mercury outboard. Winners will be determined by the heaviest three-day catch.
The top six finishers in each regional will qualify for one of the longestrunning championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Phoenix Bass Fishing League All-American. The highest finishing boater from each division will also receive a $1,000 bonus and the highest finishing co-angler from each division will receive a $500 bonus.
This weekend’s event is presented by T-H Marine’s Arkie, Cowboy, Mississippi and Ozark divisions, with the Phoenix BFL Presented by T-H Marine Regional.
Anglers will launch at 7:30 a.m. each morning from the South Point-Nichols Point landing.
Weigh-ins will also be held at the landing and will begin at 3:30 p.m. Fans are welcome to attend the event or follow the action online through the “MLF Live” weigh-in broadcasts at MajorLeagueFishing. com.
The 2023 MLF Phoenix Bass Fishing League Presented by T-H Marine consisted of 24-divisions devoted to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season and five qualifying events in each division.
The top 45 boaters and Strike King coanglers from each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, advance to one of six Phoenix Bass Fishing League Regionals. The 2024 BFL All-American will be held May 29-31 at Cherokee Lake in Jefferson County, Tennessee.
