National Walleye Tour headed to Mississippi River in Wisconsin for regular-season finale
Competitive walleye anglers will converge on the Mississippi River at Prairie du Chien, Wis., on June 15-16 for the final regular-season event of the 2017 Cabela’s National Walleye Tour. The tournament circuit features a pro-am style format and guarantees over 100 percent payback.
The Mississippi River event begins Wednesday, June 14, with tournament registration from 2-4 p.m. at The Barn Restaurant (32800 County Rd. K., Prairie du Chien), with a mandatory pre-tournament meeting set to start at 5 p.m. Pro- and co-angler pairings will be announced at the pre-tournament meeting.
Anglers will launch Thursday and Friday mornings at 7 a.m. from PDC Marina Boat Landing (374 Saint Feriole Dr., Prairie du Chien), with anglers returning to the marina for weigh-ins each day.
A fully rigged Ranger 1880, plus cash, is guaranteed for first place at each event – a minimum total value of $61,000. The first-place co-angler at the NWT championship event will win a new Ranger 1682 with 115 horsepower Evinrude outboard, valued at $26,500.
For more details, anglers may call 612-424-0708 or 501-317-7548 or check out the new website at www.nationalwalleyetour.com.
