Ok, time to get to work. Start planning. Find the spots that you think will hold those winning walleye. Because the 2019 AIM Weekend Walleye Series tournament series schedule is here.
Locations span the gamut, from water that AIM anglers and Fan Nation are familiar with, to others that are brand new to the series, says AIM National Tournament Director Denny Fox.
“We’ll be going to quality walleye water, some where we’ve been, some totally new. Teams, get your game faces, and your game plans, ready. I’m already looking forward to those big ‘eyes we’ll be seeing,” Fox says.
Here’s that list:
April 7 Fox River, Green Bay
April 28 Wolf River system, Winneconne
May 19 Bay of Green Bay, Marinette
June 23 Lake Winnebago, Oshkosh
August 23-24 State Championship, Bay of Green Bay, Marinette
May 12 Mississippi River, Hager City, Alternate TBD
June 9 Mille Lacs, Alternate TBD
July 7 Leech Lake
July 28 Lake Vermilion, at Fortune Bay Casino
August 16/17 State Championship, Lake Bemidji
May 12 Lake Sakakawea, New Town
June 16 Audubon, Totten Trail
June 30 Lake Sakakawea, Garrison
July 14 Lake Oahe, Hazelton
August 3-4 State Championship, Devils Lake
National Championship Shootout
May 31-June 1 Lake Oahe, Bismarck-Mandan
“You’ll notice that two events have possible alternate locations,” Fox points out. “That’s to make sure, for instance, that we’ve covered the possibility of high water on the Mississippi for both entrants and us as we get closer to the date.”
“All these sites have both great facilities and fantastic walleye fishing,” he adds. “We will let everyone know the specifics as we head into 2019. Watch for registration dates to be released soon.”
And don’t forget that big AIM National Championship Shootout on the Missouri River when launch at Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota at the end of May. Somebody there trailers home a new Warrior 1898 DC/ 150 Yamaha four-stroke/Garmin Electronics package worth more than $50,000.
