BROOKELAND, Texas (Jan. 13, 2019) – Sunday's Day Four of the FLW Tournament at Sam Rayburn Reservoir has been postponed due to inclement weather. The top 10 anglers scheduled to fish the final day of competition will now compete Monday to close out the season-opening tournament.
Strong winds moved into the area Saturday afternoon and continued throughout the night, creating rough conditions on Rayburn and forcing FLW officials to make the decision to push back the final day.
"After speaking with the entire team, including our pro anglers, we all feel that the best decision to be made for this event is to go ahead and cancel today and finish it up tomorrow," says FLW Tour Tournament Director Bill Taylor. "The weather conditions are much more favorable for it tomorrow."
The final 10-angler field will launch at a delayed start time of 8 a.m. CST on Monday in order to give Tour pros better visibility on the water. The added time will also allow for winds to subside and Rayburn's waters to calm before takeoff. Anglers will still check in at 3:30 p.m., as originally planned. Weigh-in and takeoff will be held at the Umphrey Family Pavilion, located at 5438 Sam Rayburn Parkway, in Brookeland.
