The 110 best boaters and co-anglers from FLW’s grassroots ranks will compete on Lake Hartwell, November 11-13 in the 2020 Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by T-H Marine All-American presented by TINCUP. One of the longest-running championships in bass fishing, the All-American is often considered to be the pinnacle of the grassroots level and has launched the careers of anglers like Shaw Grigsby, Jacob Wheeler, Jeremy Lawyer and many more throughout the years.
How they qualified – The field includes the top six boaters and co-anglers from each of six 2019 Regional Championships plus the top six from the 2019 Wild Card and top eligible finisher from each of the seven TBF divisions in the 2020 TBF National Championship. The second, third and fourth place teams (six anglers) from the 2020 Abu Garcia College Fishing National Championship qualify as boaters. The fifth and sixth place teams (four anglers) from the College Fishing National Championship qualify as co-anglers. The winners of the 2019 High School Fishing National Championship (two anglers) qualify as co-anglers.
What’s at stake – This season, the All-American boater champion earns a six-figure payday, plus an extra $20,000 if they are eligible for the FLW Phoenix Bonus. The highest-finishing boater and co-angler from each Regional and the Wild Card at the All-American earn spots in the 2020 Toyota Series Championship.
