Plymouth, WI – June 28, 2011
The third tournament of the 2011 AIM Pro Walleye Series was located at Dubuque, Iowa on June 22nd through the 24th. The Day Three weigh-in crowned the tournament champion, Robert Lampman in a dramatic come from behind victory.
A local walleye club, the Mississippi Walleye Club, was instrumental in welcoming the tournament to Dubuque and assisted throughout the course of the three day event.
The tournament also allowed the AIM organization to give back to the community. Through its partnership with the J. J. Keller Foundation, AIM is the only fishing tournament organization that intentionally seeks to provide a benefit to the host community.
The J. J. Keller Foundation partnership concept was formed by professional anglers and AIM owners, James and Brian Keller. The Foundation made a presentation of $2,500 to the Mississippi Walleye Club. This grant was accepted by Vice President Mike Bisdorf and will be used to promote kid’s outdoor activities in the Dubuque area.
AIM will conduct four Pro-Am walleye tournaments in 2011. The next tournament in the 2011 season is the AIM International Walleye Championship to be held in Akaska, South Dakota on September 15th to 17th. In addition to the Championship title, this tournament will also crown the J. J. Keller Fishing Team Angler of the Year. This award will pay $10,000 to the most consistent angler over the course of the entire 2011 season.
