FLW Marshall Toho 2/7-2/10

Recommended Posts

I decided, why not. I'm going to be a flw marshall for the tourney on toho 2/7-2/10. Anyone else by chance in the area or going to be a marshal? Free BBQ, chance to win 2500 and a boat. Why not.... I'll keep ya updated of who I get for at least 2 days and how it is.

I was all set to do also but I had to cancel today as a family issue came up. 

I Marshaled for B.A.S.S. Elites last year and enjoyed it.

The biggest problem was just sitting there for 8 hrs but you'll get used to it. 

 

If this is your first time, review the rules carefully as FLW and B.A.S.S.'s are a little different.  

 

Enjoy

Bummer. 

 

It's going to be weird just hanging for 8 hrs. I'm going to probably be bored out of my mind, but I guess I will see.... Yeh I fish BFL's so I am pretty familiar, but I will brush up on them. Hope all is well with the family!

Thanks 🙏 

What I meant was is that the B.A.S.S. and FLW rules for Pro's that you need to be familiar with as a Marshall are a little different. 

 

Some pro's like to talk, which can make the time go quicker, others do not. 

 

The best advise I can give is just follow thier lead and be a sponge!

Ah, I understand. 

 

Yeh, I follow that with fishing bfl's in general. I get everyone fishes differently. I HOPE the people I get like to talk otherwise it will be a long day. I've only fished the toho area a couple times. So it will be nice to see some different water.

 

Man, bummer couldn't meet up for the BBQ... If I enjoy this event, I will probably do the next one in GA.

I'm thinking about it also. 

Report back when you get a chance.

Picture upload on this site is terrible, so you'll just have commentary.

 

FLW Marshall meeting was cool. I sat at the table with Bolton, Thrift, Tutt, and Charlie Evans. Ate some good BBQ, got to ask questions to the speakers. 

 

Day 1 I drew Charlie Ingram. I met him where he was staying and we headed over to launch together. Super nice guy, he had a solid day weighing around 16lbs. Some males fry guarding and nicer fish in about a 100 yard stretch of flat pads worming. He was sitting decent after day 1 with chance of check and top 30 cut. 

 

Day 2 I fished with Bailey Boutries. He had an 18lb sack day 1 with almost a 10lb fish caught off a bed. He's probably the youngest angler being 19, but super nice guy. He had a tough day caught 4, and had about a 3lb fish jump off. That would have gave him a 10k payday, tough lost fish.

 

Pretty complicated tournament. Continues warming trend and some bass were moving up to beds, but much slower than originally thought. Dead flat calm for 1&2. Day 3&4 should be interesting because it's a change in weather to wind and rain. Should be a fun one to watch.

 

So as a marshall, it's a common sense deal. Know the rules, make sure you wear PFD when big motor is running, normal stuff. Talk if they want to talk, don't if they don't. Don't talk about your fishing on the water, or previous days anglers fishing. Common sense stuff.. 

 

You send hourly updates and pictures on your phone to the media guys, or you may get an Ipad which you do the same on. This gives them the info on the live updates and pictures.

 

If your comfortable backing a vehicle you'll probably be asked to load and unload.

 

Your'e guaranteed to marshall day 1 & 2 day 3&4 will be given priority based on how many events you signed up for.

 

You'll be granted 1 entry for doing day 1&2 and additional entry if more for a chance to win a new boat at the end of the year.

 

They combine your day 1&2 angler weights and you can win up to $2500.

 

It's a good experience, and you'll pick up some tips for sure. Personally, sitting watching someone fish for 8 hrs while I am on the water isn't my cup of tea. I may do another, but as of now most likely not.

 

If you're considering it I would definitely suggest giving it a shot. Any questions let me know.

 

If anyone has tips on how to upload pictures without it being a pain let me know I will toss some in here.

Sounds like you had a good day. 

To do it for all 4 days can get tedious.

Can be one of those "been there, done that" type of deals for a lot of folks. 

 

After Marshaling for the Elite's last year I didn't think I would ever do it again.
