Angler Categories

Angler Categories


Professional: A professional is a competitive angler who is registered to fish in the Pro Division of a tournament. Pros operate their own boats in a tournament and are randomly paired with co-anglers, who fish from the back deck. Pros pay higher entry fees because they stand to win a larger share of the tournament purse.

Co-angler: A co-angler is an amateur competitive angler who is registered to fish in the Co-angler Division of a tournament. Co-anglers do not use their own boats in a tournament, but are randomly paired with professionals and fish from the back of their boats. Co-anglers pay lower entry fees because they stand to win a smaller share of the tournament purse.

Boater: A boater serves the same role as a professional angler as described above. Specifically, the term “boater” is reserved for the competitive anglers who operate their own boats and fish in the Boater Division of a BFL event, the grass-roots circuit of FLW Outdoors. For practical purposes, the terms “professional” and “boater” are interchangeable in meaning.

If you are just getting started in tournament fishing, check out the Co-Angler Clinic section of the website for several articles covering topics from etiquette to what is expected of a co-angler. Competing as a co-angler is a great way to learn more about the sport of fishing while gaining experience to pave the way to the next level of tournament angling.
