EUFAULA, Okla. – Mike Tyner of Stillwater, Okla., won the Walmart Bass Fishing League Okie Division tournament on Lake Eufaula Saturday with a five-bass catch weighing 18 pounds, 10 ounces. The victory earned Tyner $3,889 and placed him one step closer to qualifying for the DeGray Lake Regional Championship in Arkadelphia, Ark., Oct. 22-24, where he could ultimately win a new Ranger boat and a Chevy truck.

Tyner caught his bass fishing the main lake throwing a silver and gold spinnerbait.

Rounding out the top five boaters are Matthew Emmons of Tulsa, Okla. (five bass, 17-10, $1,944); John Garcia of Mustang, Okla. (three bass, 17-6, $1,297); Walter Andries of Coweta, Okla. (five bass, 16-12, $907); and Edward Broaddrick of Tulsa, Okla. (five bass, 16-0, $778).

Garcia took home the Folgers Big Bass award in the Boater Division, earning $525 for a 7-pound, 9-ounce bass he caught.

Donny Murrell of Sapulpa, Okla., earned $1,944 as the co-angler winner of the April 4 BFL Okie Division event.Donny Murrell of Sapulpa, Okla., earned $1,944 as the co-angler winner Saturday thanks to four- bass weighing 15 pounds, 10 ounces that he caught flipping a worm.

Rounding out the top five co-anglers are Eric Dodson of Lindsay, Okla. (five bass, 12-6, $972); Kevin Berry of Gentry, Ark. (three bass, 11-12, $649); Jeffrey Bullinger of Sapulpa, Okla. (three bass, 10-6, $454); and Aaron Warren of Moore, Okla. (five bass, 9-5, $389).

Murrell earned $262 as the co-angler Folgers Big Bass winner after catching a 4-pound, 10-ounce bass.

The next Okie Division event will be held on the Fort Gibson Lake in Wagoner, Okla., May 2.

The top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers in each of the BFL’s 28 divisions at the end of the season advance to a no-entry-fee Regional Championship where boaters fish for a new Ranger boat and a Chevy truck and co-anglers fish for a new Ranger boat. Seven regional championships will each send six boaters and six co-anglers to the no-entry-fee Walmart BFL All-American presented by Chevy, which features a $1 million purse and a top award of $140,000 in the Boater Division and $70,000 in the Co-angler Division. Anglers who compete in all five regular-season events within a division but do not advance to a Regional Championship are eligible to compete in the Chevy Wild Card, which will also send six boaters and six co-anglers to the All-American for a total of 48 boaters and 48 co-anglers advancing through BFL competition.

The winning boater and winning co-angler at the All-American will advance to the no-entry-fee 2010 Forrest Wood Cup in Atlanta in 2010. This event, featuring a top award of $1 million, is the most lucrative tournament in all of competitive bass fishing. In all, the BFL offers weekend anglers the opportunity to qualify for three no-entry-fee championships with total cash awards exceeding $3.5 million. Plus, the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers from each BFL division may move up to the Stren Series for 2010 while All-American champions have the option to advance directly to the Walmart FLW Tour.

In BFL competition, boaters supply the boat and compete from the front deck against other boaters. Co-anglers compete from the back deck against other co-anglers.

As the nation’s leading provider of affordable, close-to-home weekend tournaments, the BFL is widely credited with opening competitive bass fishing to the masses. It also serves as a steppingstone for anglers who wish to advance to the Stren Series and ultimately the FLW Tour – bass fishing’s most lucrative tournament circuit.

Total awards are based on a full field of 200 boats in every tournament.
