Phoenix Bass Fishing League tournament on Lake Wheeler postponed due to high winds and bad weather

Major League Fishing (MLF) Phoenix Bass Fishing League Presented by TH Marine on Lake Wheeler, scheduled for Saturday April 9, has been canceled and postponed to Sunday April 10 due to high winds and hazardous sailing conditions. This will be the first of three events for anglers competing in the Choo Choo division.

Anglers participating in the event will launch Sunday at 6:30 a.m. CT from Ingalls Harbor, located at 7011 Market St. NW in Decatur, Alabama. Sunday’s weigh-in will take place at the port from 2:30 p.m.

The 2022 Phoenix Bass Fishing League presented by TH Marine is a 24-division circuit dedicated to weekend anglers, with 128 tournaments throughout the season, five qualifying events in each division. The top 45 Strike King boaters and co-fishermen in each division, along with the five winners of the qualifying events, will advance to one of six Regional Championships where they compete to finish in the top six, which then qualifies them for one of the oldest championships in all of competitive bass fishing – the Phoenix Bass Fishing League All-American. The 2022 All-American will be held June 2-4 at Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and is hosted by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and Visit Hot Springs.

The top 45 Strike King boaters and co-fishermen as well as tournament winners from each division of the Phoenix Bass Fishing League will also gain priority entry into the MLF Toyota Series, the path to the MLF Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit and ultimately the MLF Bass Pro Tour.
