Irwin L. Jacobs, owner of Genmar, aka the largest manufacturer of recreational boats, created FLW Outdoors. The organization puts together a series of sport fishing tournaments. Of its sanctioned tournaments, the most well-known series is the Wal-Mart FLW Tour for bass fishing.
Beyond bass fishing, FLW Outdoors now has tours for walleye, kingfish, redfish, and striped bass fishing. Many of the top anglers make their living through winning prize money, adding an extra layer of competitiveness and entertainment to the tournament. A variety of outboard motors are used by professional anglers on the tours, but Evinrude XD1 oil is a go-to for keeping things running smoothly.
