MINNEAPOLIS (Nov. 18, 2009) – FLW Outdoors, the world’s largest fishing tournament organization, has announced an optional payout for the 2010 FLW Walleye Tour that offers anglers the chance to dramatically increase their tournament payback.

The optional payout is in addition to the regular FLW Walleye Tour prize money and is awarded only to anglers who choose to participate. The optional payout would offer an additional $17,000 to the winning pro and an additional $3,000 to the winning co-angler, based on 150 pros and 150 co-anglers participating and would pay through 30th place. The fee for participation in the optional payout is $400 for pros and $100 for co-anglers.

An optional payout entry for the FLW Walleye Tour Championship is set at $750 for pros and $250 for co-anglers, resulting in an additional $10,000 to the winning pro and an additional $2,500 to the winning co-angler based on 50 pros and 50 co-anglers participating, paying through 50th place.

“FLW Outdoors continues to look for ways to offer tournament anglers the largest payouts in the sport,” said Charlie Evans, President and CEO of FLW Outdoors. “The optional payout allows competitors to significantly boost their winnings and reward them for their efforts while at the same time competing at the highest level.”

Pro entry fees will be $750 per tournament and co-angler entry-fees will be $250. Deposits for all six qualifying events will be $250 for pros and $100 for co-anglers.

Anglers will compete for top awards of $25,000 in the pro division and $5,000 in the co-angler division, with awards of $1,000 and $400, respectively, extending through 30th place.  For complete payback tables, visit The top 20 anglers from both the East and West divisions of the FLW Walleye Tour will qualify for the FLW Walleye Tour Championship, as well as the top 10 anglers who fish all six events and do not qualify from a division.
