The weather held as expected for the 36th annual Walleye Weekend. The Iowa Great Lakes Chamber said approximately 2,000 people participated in this year's fund-raising event. The anglers hailed from 18 different states, including Utah, Tennessee and California. This year's tournament also marked the return of the Biggest Walleye Competition. Proceeds from the general tournament went toward Lakes Area protective associations, while funds generated through the Biggest Walleye Contest supported the Iowa Great Lakes Fishing Club.
