Walleye Pro’s Troll for the Future
The National Professional Anglers Association Invite Local Youth
Local youth are in for a “reel” treat this coming weekend as the Winneconne area readies to host the major leagues of competitive walleye fishing. Over 120 Pros will be town to compete in the prestigious Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) tournament starting Wednesday, April 21 and running through Friday, April 23 (weigh-ins will be held at the Winneconne waterfront Park starting at 3:00 PM daily).
Professional fishing has grown to unprecedented levels in 2004. Pro anglers from the United States and Canada are competing for prizes that can reach several hundred thousand dollars. Major companies partner with the tournament fishing world to market product and company image to the biggest recreational group in the United States.
The National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA), a not-for-profit professional organization, is proud to host the area youth this Saturday, April 17, starting at 6:00 PM at the Middle school in Winneconne.
Area youth are invited to meet the Pros, hop into the Pros hi-tech, top-of-the-line boats and learn different aspects of fishing, like how to tie knots, bait hooks, fish biology, boating safety tips and much more. NPAA Pros represent the best of the best and will share their fish catching tricks with the kids. Steve Fellegy, a veteran NPAA walleye Pro in charge of coordinating youth events on behalf of the NPAA at all the PWT events around the country says, “We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to come to the Winneconne area and interact with the kids. It’s very important that we introduce fishing to kids at an early age.”
For more information, times and location, on this great opportunity for Winneconne area youth, contact the Winneconne Area Chamber of Commerce at 920-582-4775 or the NPAA office at 630-845-2766.
