Calling all fishermen and women: get ready to kick off the 2022 walleye season in the Iowa Great Lakes during the 40th Annual Walleye Weekend on May 7 and 8. The fun weekend forming memories with friends and families is reason alone to get excited, but there is one other aspect that you can’t forget: the $40,000 GRAND PRIZE!
The cost of the tournament is $30 for entrants aged 16 and older, and $15 for those aged 15 and younger. The Extended Contest is only an additional $20 and allows you to continue to fish for one of the tagged walleye through August 31st. The first walleye caught during the extended contest heads home with 20% of the proceeds generated from the contest, the second receives 15%, and the third receives 10%. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to catch a fish worth thousands this summer!
In addition to the tagged walleye, there are also fantastic prizes for the heaviest stringer of 3 walleye, heaviest northern pike, heaviest stringer of 5 panfish, and heaviest stringer of 10 bullhead. Well over $3,500 in prizes for the largest fish contests will be available.
