In an ongoing effort to promote interaction between world-class anglers and fishing fans, FLWOutdoors.com has announced the 29th installment of FLW Live Reel Chat. On Tuesday, June 23, at 2:30 p.m. CDT, visitors to FLWOutdoors.com will get a chance to correspond with Land O’Lakes pro Keith Williams of Conway, Ark. – the 2009 Walmart FLW Tour winner at Kentucky and Barkley lakes – in a special live chat-room format.
Williams has a decade-long career with FLW Outdoors as a bass pro, during which he’s marched past many milestones, including nine top-10 tourney finishes (7 on the FLW Tour), three Forrest Wood Cup qualifications and a BFL win. But according to Williams, his sweetest achievement came recently when he netted his first Tour win – and a $125,000 paycheck – on Kentucky and Barkley lakes. In order to achieve this impressive feat, he had to fend off tough challenges from legendary bass pro Larry Nixon and local pro David Young.
With his recent win, Williams is nearing the half-million-dollar mark in career earnings with FLW Outdoors. And after notching another Tour top-10 at Lake Norman earlier in the season, the longtime pro is poised to qualify yet again for the vaunted Forrest Wood Cup, where he would compete for the biggest payday in all of pro bass fishing: $1 million for the win.
Participation in FLW Live Reel Chat is simple. Beginning immediately, visitors to FLWOutdoors.com can log on and submit questions to the chat early in order to have the first chance at getting their questions answered. However, if that is not feasible, readers can also wait until the start of the live chat on June 23 and submit questions while the chat is ongoing.
During the chat, fishing fans will be able to pose questions directly to Williams about his most recent victory at Kentucky-Barkley, who his picks will be for the upcoming Tour event at Lake Champlain, what it’s like to compete on the FLW Tour or anything else that comes to mind.
