Major League Fishing Announces 2023 Tackle Warehouse Invitationals Roster
BENTON, Ky. – Major League Fishing announced today the roster for the 2023 Tackle Warehouse Invitationals, six three-day tournaments that feature a field of 150 pros competing for a top prize of $115,000 and an invitation to compete at REDCREST V in 2024. All six Invitationals are full, with a waiting list, as veteran and aspiring pros vie for a share of more than $3.9 million in cash awards.
Tackle Warehouse Invitationals Power-Pole Stop 1 will take place Feb. 8-10 at Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston, Florida. The sixth and final Invitational of the season will be held July 25-27 on the Mississippi River in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
Every day of competition will broadcast live, on the water, on
MLF NOW!® and stream to the Major League Fishing app, MyOutdoorTV (MOTV), and MajorLeagueFishing.com. Each event will also air on the CBS Sports Network, with 12 weeks of 2-hour shows scheduled in 2023.
Tackle Warehouse Invitational pros will compete over three days in a five-fish, weigh-in format. All 150 pros will compete the first two days, with the top 50 pros advancing to the third and final day. The winner of each Invitational will be determined by heaviest three-day cumulative weight. The winner of each of the six Invitationals in 2023 will also receive an invitation to compete in REDCREST V in March of 2024. The season-long Invitational Angler of the Year (AOY) will also earn a berth into REDCREST V, for a total of seven REDCREST V qualification opportunities. In addition, the top eight pros based on Angler of the Year (AOY) rank at the end of the 2023 season will qualify for the 2024 Bass Pro Tour and the top 75 pros based on AOY rank will requalify for the 2024 Tackle Warehouse Invitationals.
