MINNEAPOLIS (July 1, 2015) – Tien Austin of Honolulu, Hawaii, correctly picked five of the top 10 anglers in last week’s Walmart FLW Tour event at the Potomac River presented by Ranger Boats. For her picks, Austin won $5,000 by playing FLW Fantasy Fishing, held in conjunction with the FLW Tour fishing tournament.
 
“I was completely taken by surprise when I found out I won,” said Austin. “I’ve been playing FLW Fantasy Fishing for a while but have never been in contention for a cash prize.
 
“My whole family plays FLW Fantasy Fishing. It’s how we stay connected since we live so far away from one another,” continued Austin. “It’s our own special social media game.”
 
Austin said she didn’t have a clear-cut strategy when she was picking her top anglers. Instead, she used advice from her grandfather, who is an avid follower of FLW tournaments, to make her picks.
 
“He really knows his FLW facts and statistics,” said Austin. “I’ll definitely be seeking more advice from him when I pick my team for the Forrest Wood Cup.”
 
Finishing in second place on the fantasy side for the Potomac River event was D.R. Villanueva of Nixa, Missouri, who won $1,000, and in third place was Will Hartshorn of Palm Coast, Florida, who won $500. Several other winners from across the globe took home prizes including cash, ShopFLW gift cards, hats and baits.
 
The 2015 Fantasy Fishing season consists of seven tournaments surrounding the Walmart FLW Tour regular season as well as the season-ending Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing. Fans compete for more than $7,000 in cash and prizes from each of the six tournaments and a top prize of $5,000. The cumulative grand prize for the highest ranked player at the end of the season is $10,000.
 
To begin playing, visit FantasyFishing.com and sign up. Select a team of 10 anglers against an allocated $200 salary cap and select your guess for the tournament winning weight as a tiebreaker. Create a league to play against your friends and compete for bragging rights. Player’s modifications to their teams must be finalized by 11:59 p.m. ET the night prior to the tournament.

MINNEAPOLIS (April 30, 2015) – Johnathan Johnson of Sylacauga, Alabama, correctly picked four of the top 10 anglers in last week’s Walmart FLW Tour event on Beaver Lake presented by Rayovac. For his picks, Johnson won $5,000 by playing FLW Fantasy Fishing, held in conjunction with the FLW Tour bass-fishing tournament.
 
“I’ve been playing Fantasy Fishing for many years now and have never won a prize like this,” said Johnson. “To win $5,000 online in a free game is absolutely unreal.”
 
Johnson said that he used the FLW website and its angler history functions to do the majority of his research.  
 
“I went down the list and looked for anglers who had done well in the past at Beaver Lake,” said Johnson. “I especially looked for anglers who had logged multiple top-10 finishes. When it comes to the consistent guys, sometimes you pick them and sometimes you don’t. This time I happened to choose the right combination.
 
“The Beaver Lake tournament can be difficult to pick for, because a wide variety of anglers have won their in the past,” Johnson continued. “Sometimes, you just have to go with your favorites.”
 
Johnson went to say that he plans on using some of the winnings to help his son with his college expenses.
 
“He’s got one more year left until he graduates, so it’s going to be nice to be able to contribute,” Johnson said.
 
Finishing in second place on the fantasy side for the Beaver Lake event was James McMullen of Quakertown, Pennsylvania, who won $1,000, and in third place was Rodney Harris of Texarkana, Arkansas, who won $500. Several other winners from across the globe took home prizes including cash, ShopFLW gift cards, hats and baits.
