FLW has announced the disqualification of two anglers for the Walmart FLW Tour season opener at Lake Okeechobee Feb. 6-9.
Anthony Gagliardi of Prosperity, S.C., and Frank Clark of Benton, Ill., were in violation of rule 5 of the official rules. FLW said in both cases the rules violations were inadvertent. The DQ is especially devastating to Gagliardi, whose home waters, Lake Murray, is the site of the 2014 Forrest Wood Cup.
