MINNEAPOLIS (Sept. 7, 2012) – FLW has announced the 2013 EverStart Series schedule, which will again consist of five divisions – Central, Northern, Southeastern, Texas and Western – with four events per division.

The events will feature a field of up to 150 pros and 150 co-anglers. The full field will compete on days one and two, then the top-10 pros and co-anglers will advance to the final day of competition, where the winner will be determined by the heaviest three-day cumulative weight.

Top awards have been increased for 2013 with pros competing for $40,000 and co-anglers fishing for a Ranger Z117 with a 90-horsepower outboard in every tournament. If the angler is Ranger Cup qualified, the winning pro will also receive a Ranger Z518 with a 200-horsepower outboard and the winning co-angler will receive an additional $5,000. Second place pays $15,000 for pros and $5,000 for co-anglers. Entry fees are unchanged at $1,000 per tournament for pros and $400 per event for co-anglers.
