MLF Marshals Rave About Their Time With the Pros on Lake Murray

Are you looking for an affordable way to get involved in the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit Presented by Bad Boy Mowers while learning how to put more fish in the boat? MLF’s Marshal program is your opportunity to spend quality time with some of the best anglers in the country while getting a unique behind-the-scenes experience that most fans never get to see. 

“If you don’t do it, you’re missing out,” MLF Marshal Tim Morgan said.

Morgan traveled from his hometown of Dandridge, Tennessee to Marshal during Stop 3 of the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit on Lake Murray. It was his first event as an MLF Marshal, but he says it won’t be his last. 

“I will tell you, and this is no lie, I’m 62 years old and that’s one of the top five experiences of my life,” Morgan said. 

Morgan spent four days on Lake Murray with four different pros, including local legend Anthony Gagliardi and Pro Circuit rookie Tai Au

“I look forward to Saturdays, watching these guys on TV,” said Morgan, “This past weekend, I was able to live what they do, and it was great.”

It costs just $100 to sign up as an MLF Marshal during a regular-season tournament, and that fee includes an exclusive seminar with Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit anglers, behind-the-scenes access throughout the event, and an exclusive MLF Marshal jersey.  Not to mention, you’ll play a vital role in live coverage of the tournament by verifying your pro’s catch and relaying information to MLF editors.

MLF Marshals can also win money, as much as $2,500 at every tournament. Morgan earned $250 for coming in fifth place in the Marshal points at the end of the event. But most Marshals will tell you the most valuable aspect is the knowledge they gain from being on the water with the pros. 

Andre Yee was also a first-time MLF Marshal at the Pro Circuit event on Lake Murray. He believes that the Marshal program is an affordable alternative to hiring a fishing guide. 

“If you go get a guide to go fish somewhere, it’s going to cost you at least $400. And that’s for eight hours,” Yee said. 

For Yee, spending two to four full days on the water with a pro and witnessing what goes one behind the scenes at a professional bass tournament is well worth the $100. 

“It’s dirt cheap, the way I look at it,” he said. 

Yee spent Days 3 and 4 on the water with Michael Neal and said he enjoyed watching Neal skipping a buzzbait with incredible accuracy. He said observing some of the best bass anglers in the world break down his home lake, and looking at Lake Murray through their eyes, was an educational experience. He wishes he had learned about the MLF Marshal program sooner. 

“It’s fun. It’s absolutely fun,” Yee said.

There are three more Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit Stops on the 2021 schedule, in addition to the Tackle Warehouse TITLE. You can sign up to Marshal at those events here.
