The AIM Pro Walleye Series rolls into Dubuque, Iowa for the third tournament of the 2011 schedule. The Pro-Am fishing tournament will be held June 22 to 24, 2011. The location for the daily weigh-ins will be the Mystique Casino. The weigh-ins will be held indoors to eliminate any chance of inclement weather affecting the multi-media show.
But the activities start the week before the tournament dates. The AIM Pro Anglers arrive in town early to “pre-fish” and try to unravel the miles of Mississippi River. To welcome the Pro Anglers to town, the Mystique Casino is staging a special “Fish N Chips Poker Tournament” on Friday, June 17th.
The tournament will match up to 15 of the AIM Pro Anglers against up to 25 top poker players from the Mystique Casino. There is no buy-in for this special tournament. Each player will receive 5,000 in non-value tournament chips.
The prize pool will be $2,000, and will pay the top seven winners. The prize money will be distributed as follows:
First Place $740.00 (37%)
2nd Place $380.00 (19%)
3rd Place $260.00 (13%)
4th Place $220.00 (11%)
5th Place $160.00 (8%)
6th Place $140.00 (7%)
7th Place $100.00 (5%)
Interested Pro Anglers should contact Brandy Welter at the Mystique Casino for more details and the tournament rules.
Entries are still being accepted for both Pro Anglers and Co-anglers. The Co-angler entry fee is $250 for two days of fishing, each with a different AIM Pro Angler. After Day Two the number of Pro Anglers is reduced to the top 50% of the field. Half of the Co-angler field will also be selected to fish an additional day for free.
