Lake Winnebago to Host National Walleye Tour Opener in May


Lake Winnebago will host the season-opening event of the National Walleye Tour for the second straight year. The tour was moved to Lake Winnebago in 2018 after flooding on the Mississippi River forced a change in venue. The same situation happened this year – as the tournament’s original host, Red Wing, Minnesota, received a record 39 inches of snow in February. That prompted tournament organizers to preemptively move the tournament because of flooding once again. The tournament will be held May 2nd & 3rd. Fishing begins at 7 AM each day at Menominee Park in Oshkosh, with weigh-ins taking place at 3 PM at the park The registration deadline for guaranteed entry – by signing up with a pro or co-angler - is today, with single entries still being accepted beyond that. Registration can be done online here. 

The tournament consists of three regular-season events, plus a season-ending championship event. Other locations hosting a regular season event include Marinette, Wisconsin on May 30th & 31st, and Sault Ste Marie, Michigan on July 25th & 26th. This year’s championship is in Devil’s Lake, ND September 11th through the 13th. Read more about the tournament here.
