MINNEAPOLIS – Chip Brooks of Bradenton picked five of the top 10 anglers in last week’s Walmart FLW Tour on Pickwick Lake presented by Straight Talk Wireless.
Brooks won $5,000 by playing FLW Fantasy Fishing in conjunction with the FLW Tour fishing tournament. "It’s funny,” said Brooks, a longtime Fantasy Fishing player and FLW co-angler. “I left for a trip on Saturday and told my wife, ‘I think I’m going to win this week,' and she told me I was nuts.” FLW Fantasy Fishing is free to play. The 2014 Fantasy Fishing season consists of seven tournaments surrounding the Walmart FLW Tour regular season as well as the season-ending Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing.
Fans compete for more than $7,000 in cash and prizes from each of the six tournaments and a top prize of $5,000. The cumulative grand prize for the highest-ranked player at the end of the season is $10,000. Go to FantasyFishing.com to sign up.
