Indian Lake is set to host a great day of bass fishing for anglers in this late-July BFL tournament. While smallmouth can be found in the lake, largemouth will likely be favored by tournament anglers. Anglers will likely be seen working jigs or wacky-rigged worms around boat docks for bass. Working a frog near lily pads could also produce some good bites for competitors. For others, picking apart points with a shaky-head rig and stretches of riprap with crankbaits may be the ticket to a solid limit. A five-bass limit at the 11-pound mark should be enough to win this Buckeye Division outing.

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 2020 BFL All-American will be held April 30-May 2 at Lake Hartwell in Anderson, South Carolina, and is hosted by Visit Anderson. Top performers in the BFL can move up to the Costa FLW Series or even the FLW Tour.
