Alabama will play host to three 2013 FLW EverStart Series tournaments, all of them on the Tennessee River, in two of the circuit’s five divisions.

Each division has four events. They begin in January with the Southeastern opener at Okeechobee and wrap up in mid-October with the final Western Division derby on Clear Lake. Divisions include Central, Northern, Southeastern, Texas and Western.

No EverStart championship event is scheduled. Entry fees are $1,000 for the pro division and $400 for co-anglers, and that’s for each tournament. Incentive program bonuses are available. Winning pros will get $40,000 in each event, and co-anglers will fish for a boat-motor package that does not have a specified value. Runners-up will get $15,000 (pro) and $5,000 (co).

Payback is based on the number of paid entries for each tournament. There is no payout this season after 30th place, so if you want a check then you better fish well. The top pro and co-angler based on points in each division earns a berth in the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup (only if they fish the full 2014 EverStart or FLW Tour season, however).
