Fantasy Fishing Contest Offers Top Prizes


After last year’s inaugural season of Fantasy Fishing, which had the biggest payouts in the history of Internet sports games, year two has just begun. 

Fantasy Fishing is sponsored by FLW Outdoors where there will be a total payout for the entire season of more than $10 million in prizes and cash. 

The sign-up to play is free, which makes the game even more attractive to prospective players. All one needs to do is log on to and sign-up to play. The goal is to pick the top 10 professional anglers who will make the cut after they fish for two days at each of the lakes on the tour.

There are 160 tour fishermen to choose from which can certainly be a challenge making the right choices.

It can be helpful to know the profiles of the anglers, the characteristics of the lake, the time of year, and weather conditions. Even with all this information, fish still have to bite and anglers need to catch fish.

Sometimes too much information can actually be a detriment, so some players do well by picking their favorite fishermen by geographic locations or sponsorship. Whatever the case, it is certainly fun to play with no cost to enter and the chance to win some very nice prizes.

Each tour stop awards more than 500 prizes to the players in Fantasy Fishing. So the chances of doing well are quite possible, even for the most inexperienced weekend angler who wants to try their hand at the Fantasy Fishing game.

Numerous local residents of the Rim Country were among the winners of various prizes by picking the right pros on the circuit. Even I made a couple of good picks which netted me a $100 gift card from Walmart. 

At the season’s end, there is a chance to win the top prize of $1 million, or one of the other great gifts of trucks, bass boats and ATVs.

If you haven’t signed up, I would certainly encourage you to log on to and play this virtual fishing game which is catching on throughout the country. Who knows, maybe you will be the next big prize winner by picking the right bass pros even if you can’t catch a fish.

This weekend enjoy the outdoors, God’s creation.
