National Walleye Tour Bay de Noc

The National Walleye Tour will be making a stop in Escanaba Michigan for the third event of the 2014 Tournament Season.  The tournament will be held Friday August 29 and Saturday August 30.  Anglers will be allowed to fish all Michigan waters of Green Bay as well as the Bays de Noc.  Due to a restrictive slot, anglers will only be allowed to weigh 2 fish per day that exceed 23" in length, while their other 3 fish must fall between 15"-22.99". 

With such a tight slot limit, anglers must find both big fish as well as those perfect unders to propel themselves to the top of the leaderboard.  The bite has been reported to be fair, with fish being caught scattered throughout the system, which will make for an exciting event with potential big changes at the top from day one to day two.

The weather will also throw a curveball into the equation, as rain and storms are predicted for both days, as well as south winds day one switching out of the north for day two.  Despite so many variables thrown at the competitors, expect some solid limits of Bay de Noc gold to cross the stage!

The weigh ins will be held at 2:00 pm Central at Ludington Park Harbor in Escanaba, MI.  There will also be a live stream of the weigh in available online for those interested to watch from home.  The link to the live weigh in can be found on the National Walleye Tour's website at
