To begin playing, visit FantasyFishing.com and sign up. A team will automatically be selected for you, but you can edit that team and choose the 10 anglers you think will place the highest in the next Tour event. You must then select the angler you think will win the tournament and predict that angler’s cumulative winning weight, which will serve as the tiebreaker. Player’s modifications to their teams must be finalized by 11:59 p.m. ET the night prior to the tournament.
“Are you serious?” asked Schario. “I can’t believe it. This is my first year playing Fantasy Fishing. I started playing after watching “FLW Outdoors.” I have been fishing since I was a baby and love to watch the tournaments on TV. From the years of watching I have grown to know the anglers and try to match their strengths with the lake. Plus I have my favorites.”
