Lake O' The Pines: The Southern Fishing League (SFL) is coming for your bass. What is the SFL? We are a new tournament organization that will utilize MLF rules with slight modifications (no fish landing penalty, no central location meetup between periods). The Shootouts are limited to a field of 50 boats fishing either as a team or individual. With a full 50 boat field the winner will walk away with a cool $10,000 in cash. We will pay out 5 spots 1) $10k, 2) $2,000, 3) $1,000, 4) $900, 5) $800. We have scheduled Lake O' the Pines for a Shootout Lake on 7 November, 2020.
