The top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers in each of the BFL’s 28 divisions at the end of the season advance to a regional championship. Seven regional championships will each send six boaters and six co-anglers to the 2008 Wal-Mart BFL All-American, which features a $1 million purse and a top award of $140,000.
