Plymouth, WI – November 11, 2011
AIM announced today that the field of competing anglers is full and the teams are set for the 2012 Can-Am Invitational Tournament, hosted by Bay Mills Resort & Casinos. Thirty one American Pro Walleye Anglers, led by Co-captains, Brett King and Mark Martin will fish against a team of 31 Canadian Pro Walleye Anglers, led by Co-captains John Butts and Joe Giuliani. AIM’s exclusive, Catch, Record and Release format will protect the fish and preserve the fishery for this artificial bait only tournament. The Pro Anglers from both America and Canada will be randomly paired with the Co-Angler from either country.
The Bay Mills Can-Am Invitational will be held on May 31 – June 2, 2012. Three unique features will be incorporated into the tournament. First, each of the 62 Pro Anglers will receive $300 from Bay Mills Resort & Casinos at registration – before the tournament even begins – totaling $18,600. Second, the Can-AM Pro Anglers will also be competing for Team Bonuses. Each Pro Angler will be competing as a member of an American or Canadian Team with each Pro’s C-R-R weight being added to their respective team’s weight. The Team with the highest total C-R-R weight will each receive a $250 bonus – that is another $7,750. Third, because of Bay Mills Resort & Casinos’ sponsorship, the complete cash prize and bonus payouts will make the Bay Mills Can-Am Invitational the most lucrative walleye tournament in 2012.
Bay Mills Resort & Casinos is located in Brimley, Michigan on the shores of Lake Superior. From the resort’s boat launch anglers have access to Lake Superior, the Saint Mary’s River system, plus downstream from the international locks at Sault Ste. Marie, Lake Huron and Lake Michigan.
