Fishing League Worldwide announced Monday the complete professional angler roster for the upcoming 2019 FLW Tour season, including Kurt Mitchell, of Milford.
The field will be showcased along the 2019 FLW Tour, which features seven regular-season tournaments around the country with competition kicking off at Sam Rayburn Reservoir, Jan. 10-13, 2019, in Brookeland, Texas, and culminating with the world championship of bass fishing, the FLW Cup at Lake Hamilton, Aug. 9-11, 2019, in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Mitchell will compete in his fourth season on the tour. Mitchell has career earnings of more than $100,000 with FLW and has two career top-10 finishes in FLW competition.
There was high demand to compete on the 2019 FLW Tour, with 210 anglers registering for a slot on the prestigious tournament circuit in its final year of priority registration before switching to a strict qualifying process and a 150-pro field in 2020.
The top award at each tour event is $125,000 with $300,000 going to the winner of the FLW Cup. Because the final field exceeds the published payout basis of 150 pros, FLW will survey all 170 participating pros to finalize the 2019 payout structure.
