FLW announced today that 2006 FLW Tour Angler of the Year Anthony Gagliardi is one of two competitors who've been disqualified from the season opener at Lake Okeechobee, which begins next week. The other is second-year pro Frank Clark of Illinois.
Both were in violation of Rule 5, which deals with restricted access and off-limits periods. Both were on the water with ineligible practice partners inside the 30-day window prior to the first Tour practice day.
Gagliardi's violation dates back to the Okeechobee Southeastern Rayovac earlier this month.
