Congratulations and THANKS to all 84 teams that fished the MWS Green Bay tournament.
I would also like to THANK all the anglers that assisted us when a big wind came up during tournament registration Saturday. Without you help we would have had damage to our tents and awning. Thanks to your help we had no damage, and were able to run the tournament without having to repair or replaced equipment. Thanks again on behalf of Ray myself and the entire TFM staff.
The sun was out all day with a little walleye chop. Many of the teams said they caught a numbers of fish while others struggled to catch fish. Success varied from early to all day. Sixty one teams weighed a three fish limit. There was a total of 212 fish caught weighing a total of 1078.78#.
