Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) has announced its schedule for the 2020 season of “FLW Fishing,” which will include an episode featuring the Tackle Warehouse Pro-Circuit set on the Harris Chain of Lakes in Leesburg, according to a Lake County Government press release.

The July 10 episode will air on the Outdoor Channel from 7-9 p.m. featuring the Leesburg tournament held February 20-23.  The competition was staged at Ski Beach in Venetian Gardens with 153 bass pros competing for a total purse of over $840,000.  Laramy Strickland from Bushnell took home the top prize with winnings of $103,000.  Additional re-airings of the episode will be shown on the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel throughout the subsequent week

“Leesburg and Lake County have long been recognized for our fisheries, especially the Harris Chain of Lakes,” says Recreation Director Travis Rima. “The economic impact of fishing events held in Leesburg in the past year is estimated to be over $3 million. Lake County and FLW are excellent partners in these endeavors, and the City of Leesburg is proud to showcase Leesburg and the Harris Chain of Lakes to the national audience.”

Viewers can watch the Tackle Warehouse Pro Circuit every Friday night when “FLW Fishing” airs from 7-9 p.m. through December 27, 2020 on the Outdoor Channel. Complete details, full broadcast schedules and updated information on “FLW Fishing” can be found at FLWFishing.com.
