MINNEAPOLIS (July 10, 2006) - Tune in Sunday, July 28 to "FLW Outdoors" on FSN for the $330,000 Wal-Mart FLW Kingfish Tour event held in Fort Pierce, Fla. The second event of the $1.82 million FLW Kingfish Tour season concludes with the winning team claiming a cash prize of $100,000.

The "FLW Outdoors" saltwater series is a reality-format show told from the anglers' perspective. Each week the top-five finalists are followed from takeoff to weigh-in, allowing the audience to feel the anglers' nerves, listen to their strategy and learn from their mistakes. The stories evolve and the suspense grows throughout the one-hour show until the final weigh-in results are announced.

FLW Kingfish Tour qualifying tournaments are three-day events. The entire field competes on day one and day two and the top five teams compete on day three. The winning team is determined based on the heaviest kingfish from day one or day two plus the heaviest kingfish from day three.

Buoyed by a 57-pound, 13-ounce kingfish it caught on day one, Team Folgers easily owns the opening-round lead. The fish, which was caught trolling a blue runner, set the mark as the heaviest king mackerel caught to date in the two-year-old FLW Kingfish Tour. Battling thunderstorms in the morning, Team Folgers captained by David Kingery of Melbourne, Fla., caught the fish in offshore waters north of Sebastian, Fla. With a more than 10-pound lead over second place, the team appears to be on the verge of capturing the $100,000 first-place purse.

Team Steve's Seafood - which consists of former pro wrestler Jake "the Snake" Roberts, his son Dustin and Capt. James Schmelz of Jacksonville, Fla. - caught a 47-pound kingfish on day two while fishing the area known as the Pines, north of Sebastian, Fla. The second-heaviest fish of the tournament, it launched the team, which zeroed on day one, all the way into second place heading into the finals.

FSN also follows Team Lured Away, captained by Robert Schoenfeld of Conroe, Texas, who caught a kingfish on day one that weighed 45 pounds, 4 ounces. The team is fishing an area called Black Condo, about 10 miles south of the Fort Pierce Inlet. Schoenfeld said his team is catching fish in about 30 feet of water on both pilchards and ribbonfish.
