I know it has been posted here before but will ask again.
Why can't we try some new water?
I realize that the Michigan Division is growing and why change a good thing. I also realize that besides the Grand that we go to world-class waters. But a trip north would be nice. Traverse Bay to start the season off on could be awesome and they have the facilities to house 300 guys.
Oh well! I am sending in my $$ no matter what but just had to ask the question.

No problem Mike....
The BFL is a good circuit to fish. Your idea of fishing it as a co-angler is smart depending on how you feel about your tournament experience. It allows you the opportunity to fish a quality circuit with little cash outlay, the possibility of learning from those you draw, and you can decide if you wish to try fishing as a boater down the road.
The Super Tournament is a two day tournament at the end of the season for each BFL division. The entry fee is double the normal entry fee. It would cost $150.00 for a co-angler. The top 15 or 20 % ( I cannot remember the exact %) from the first day get to fish on Sunday.
As far as getting in all five tournaments, you can enter by yourself as a co-angler and depending on when you enter, you may get into the tournament. My suggestion would be to find a "boater" to pair up with for all or most of the tournaments. The two of you can enter under what is called "priority entry". This pratically guarantees you will be in the tournaments you enter.
