2016 could not look any more promising for all Canadians associated with FLW and FLW Canada.

    Eight Canadian anglers took part in the seasons first FLW tour event on Lake Okeechobee this week in Clewiston Florida and wow did they show up!

    All forms of social media blew up when results started coming in from day 1. On the Co-angler side, Vincent Yonemitzu had the lead and just behind was FLW Canada's very own tour pro, Spiro Agouros positioned in 5th. Both however stumbled a little on their final day, but still finished on the top leaderboard page in 5th and 6th against almost 200 other anglers.

    Four Canadian anglers on the Pro side had stories of their own to be excited about. Curtis Richardson, Jeff "Gussy" Gustafson, and Cory Johnston all capped off amazing weeks by finishing in the top 50 and each claiming $10,000 USD, but all just missed that very tough top 20 cut to move on.

    Under Armour FLW tour Pro, Chris Johnston got hot at the right time! Chris made the top 20 cut; and in style. Chris brought in day 3's largest bag which catapulted him into 4th and in sight of a virtually uncatchable leader, Bradley Hallman. Hallman has been having a dream week and went into day 4 with a 13lb lead over second place.

    Day 4 came with another weather change and very tough fishing conditions. Chris battled it out against the other top ten anglers in about as tough conditions as you can have thrown at you in Florida. As the weighin began it was apparent from the first few bags brought on stage that the bite was tough, and catching Hallman was not going to happen. 4th last angler came in and Chris had 10-8 which put him in 3th place at tournaments end.

    All of Canada is proud of Chris on his amazing accomplishment and the same to be said for all the Canadian anglers that took on Big Lake Okeechobee this week. This excitement will have all Canadians gearing up for FLW Canada's season to get underway sooner than later. June 25th Hurry up! Buckhorn awaits us!!!
