Registration for the AIM walleye tournament on Green Bay at Oconto is approaching capacity.
The tournament, set for July 20-22, has room for 100 boats, with a pro, a team member they select and an amateur co-angler.
“AIM is very pleased with the angler response and overall excitement created by this exciting new format,” said AIM Pro Walleye Series CEO Joe Baron. “All pro-teams and co-anglers planning on fishing this event should register now to avoid getting shut out of this very special event.”
For this event, AIM has lowered the age to fish as a member of the Pro Team to sixteen as long as the other member of the team is the parent or legal guardian.
The event is currently the only team tournament with a 100 percent payout at this level.
“For a 100 boat field, AIM will be paying $30,000 for first place and paying the top 25 percent of the field,” Baron said.
A full payout schedule is expected to be released this week.
AIM has also recently learned that their “Catch, Record & Release” format has allowed this tournament to be the first and only “Green Certified” Fishing Tournament in Wisconsin to date. The certification came from “Travel Green Wisconsin.”
The AIM CRR format eliminates the casualties of walleye caught in the tournament, as all live fish are returned to the water within seconds after they are caught.
