Hawthorn Woods, IL – January 30, 2013
World Walleye Association, Inc. (WWA) has been purchased by Theresa Meade, Ingleside, IL (NPAA# 161) and Joe Baron, Hawthorn Woods, IL (NPAA# 220). Theresa is an active tournament fisherman, seminar speaker and licensed guide. She has also held the position of tournament director for the WWA in Illinois for the past six years. Joe is a walleye enthusiast and tournament angler. He has held the position of web master for the WWA over the last six years as well the President / CEO of Anglers Insight Marketing, LLC (AIM Pro Walleye Series) for the past 15 months.
The two have a plan to restore the WWA to the top of the grass root walleye tournament fishing world. The vision of the WWA is to providing a multitude of low entry fee, individual qualifying series across the US and into Canada over the next several years. Teams will be competing within their own series to win the prestigious “Angler of the Year” title as well as qualification into the WWA National Championship and Cabela’s NTC.
The 2013 season will feature two tournament series. Five qualifying tournaments are being scheduled for each of the two series (Fox Chain, Illinois and Winnebago system, Wisconsin). Additional series will be added each year. The schedules for the two series will be officially announced in the very near future. Follow the WWA on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/WorldWalleyeAssociation or on the WWA website at www.worldwalleye.com for additional information as it becomes available.
